Next to a motorway. 7 stores high building with forrest on one side and motorway on the other. I had very low expectations - but I was wrong. Check in was smooth - and receiving a room upgrade, a newspaper, 50 SEK discount + 20% discount on dinner when checking in was a nice surprice. Room - on 7th floor... More

The room we got was old, shabby and worn down. The website pictures are farm from what you get. Choose anything else, rather a tent then this! Breakfast is ok, but if they can´t satisfiy the customers with Clean and updated rooms, it thosen´t matter if the food is ok. The appertite is long gone. Please choose anything else but... More

Stayed here for 2 nights this month. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean and light. Comfortable beds and good shower. Restaurant is great, good breakfast, great dinner choices. All in all a nice place to stay when you are in the Gävleborg region.

I usually spend some of my Scandic points during the winter by staying at Scandic Gävle Väst and go to Kungsberget (small ski area just 30 minutes away from Scandic) for a weekend with the kids. Great staff, always friendly and eager to solve any issue. This time it was World Championship in XC-Skiing in Falun and we had tickets... More

During this stay we had a reconditioned room at floor seven. It was very fresh. We use to stay here once or twice a year and it has allways been good cleaned rooms but a reconditioned gives better air and no smell. The personel is good at meeting guests, happy, nice and helpful giving good service.

We stayed a night here having failed to find a hotel in Uppsala. It was very late when we arrived and we were just happy to find a room. The cost is acceptable for a hotel room in Sweden, and the roadside offering in Scandinavia is far superior to any of the other countries (especially the UK!). We were quite... More

The rooms are adequate for a business traveller. The restaurant has a limited menu but the food on the menu is good. I would prefer a slightly larger range. The only stock Swedish newspapers which is of no use to a non Swedish person like myself. The staff in reception and the restaurant are really friendly and helpful, this make... More

It's hard for an American to accept this kind of room for the very high price (compared to what we're used to in the U.S.). Very small room with two narrow beds and little floor space, no air conditioning (!), no coffee maker, of course no ice machine in the whole hotel. The bathroom was really weird, as there is...

This hotel is well situated in respect to the motorway E4. The reception is in the norm. I found the standard room small, clean, but very bare and cold atmosphere. There is no wardrobe available and nor one dresser or chest of drawers. The bath was without any carpet and equipped with only one (small) shower towel and one hand... More
