One of my favorite hotel in Stockholm. Amazing view, big rooms, perfect breakfast, helpful and nice stuff, perfect location for those who likes silent and comfort. It takes only 10 min to get into the center of the city by subway or 25 min by bus. Would gladly recommend this hotel to everyone who would like to live in the... More

This hotel has a certain reputation to live up to being known as the hotel of choice for businesspeople, but I have to say it doesn't quite live up to expectations. First of all, the web site states "15 minutes from central Stockholm". Maybe by car. If you travel by public transport you'll need to take both a bus and... More

The hotel is across a bridge from down town area. Break fast, lunch and dinner was very good. Rooms are good. Training room was small with not so much equipment. As a conference hotel or for business trips it worksgood. For vacation it a bit "off sited"

Great hotel, property, rooms and restaurant. It's a very popular place too for tourists and locals. However the staff is very lean, and once has to wait a long time at the reception....as there is only .....one ....yes, one person most of the time at the reception....causing queues and delays.

I stayed one (very short) night at Scandic Foresta, and was woken quite early by the light going through the blinds. The view from the room in the early morning is great, and I must say that sleeping was comfortable.

The Hotel is completely different to what you see on their website. The seafront rooms would overlook the bay. And the refinery or whatever this industry is on the other side of the bay. But certainly not a nice view of the city of Stockholm. But anyway they won't give you a seafront room but a room overlooking the car... More
