Stayed here one Saturday to Sunday, got o good package deal with Training, SPA and good food. The gym was Nordic wellnes, with all possible training facilities. Tested the gym and the Body Pump, we used the Spa also, not so big but the simple important things. Dinner included in package at Karlssons salonger - very good food.

Went here on a trip with my job, we also had a conference at the hotel. This was the second time I visited this hotel and it's located wonderful in the middle of the town, close to all restaurants and shopping in Jönköping. The rooms are normal, which is big enough. It's very quiet during the nights, so it's easy... More

I stayed here one night on a business trip for a conference. As such, it's one of those trips where you actually spend very little time in the hotel! The room was OK, and the bathroom was OK also. A little dated. Didn't sleep overly well. You can hear people on the street outside as they leave the local clubs,... More

The Scandic Portalen is a very nice basic hotel that ticks a few boxes to make it that little bit more enjoyable. The rooms are basic but well kept, the beds are comfy but make use of the extra pillow. It's my 5th stay here and the staff have always been willing to go that extra mile. The basics are... More

Narrow bed along a wall, less than helpful personnel (didn´t even know how to find their garage), terrible food in the restaurant. Rundown breakfast restaurant. Priced as a luxury hotel in a metropolis but with the standard of a third class hotel in the countryside. Not worth a third of the price.

Good hotel, good location but if you are on business and stay Thursday evening expect very little sleep as the nightclub adjoining the hotel and below the rooms has pounding music until the early hours and you have no chance of keeping until it closes.

This hotel is nicely located, downtown and near the train station. It's clean, well maintained, with unadorned, simple Nordic design throughout. There's a cozy bar downstairs, and the breakfast spread was huge and high quality. Overall, this is a pretty good place to stay. The only sour note, which seemed totally unnecessary, was that my bed had a teeny, tiny... More

Very good hotel, excellent and helpful staff who could not do enough to help us when the car let us down! Town centre situation with a good underground garage so the car is very safe. Room was warm and no air on but we had our own fan which helped. Would defiantly stay again.

The hotel is in the city central, and seems to be near the railways. Shops and a supermarket (open until 22 o'clock Mon-Fri + weekends but can't remember the times) very close. The staff is very friendly and hotel is quite big. The hotel was not in such a good shape as I thought it would be based on the... More
