I was happy arrive to this cozy hotel after long work drive. Very polite reception, which helpmed with the car parking fee. I got a comfy room with a view towards beautiful garden. In the evening I ate dinner at hotel's restaurant, the food was excellent. I was sitting alone, but the waiter made sure that I didn't feel alone.... More

It fits all my needs when going on business trips to Lidingö. Rooms are comfortable and spacious (although sometimes smells bad at bathrooms, and they know it). Free WiFi at all areas of the Hotel. Nice restaurant with a fair variety of local and international dishes at extremely competitive prices. Breakfast is "Typical Scandic", with enough choice of bagels, fruits... More

We stayed during a weekend in a bigger room (was it "Superior"?) with a very nice view. The room was comfy and clean, nothing to complain about really. May be that the breakfast restaurant is a bit 'simple' and gets crowded very easily. They were short of staff one morning and struggled to keep up appearances and tables clean. You... More

The room was good with nice sea view and an excellent bistro with delicious barbecue buffe. High level of service by bistro staff. The beds were somewhat hard/stiff though. Visit the art museum Millesgården nearby with sculptures outdoors and art by Carl Mlilles.

I can not complain on anything particular, well, almost, there is no elevator to the floor in the old tower where our room was. I expected something old style, charming since it used to be castle but nothing charming with this hotel! Room was quite big and clean, with basics, nothing extravagant. Very clean lines, very swedish-sometimes too simple and... More

My entire family stayed at the Scandic Foresta this summer for three nights, ages ranging from 5 to 75. While the first room my mother was placed in felt quite cramped and had half of its window blocked by an exterior wall, the hotel staff was very accommodating in transferring her to another part of the hotel upon request, one...

This hotel apparently used to be a top choice for the rich and famous like Walt Disney, the Beatles etc. You can see beautiful people hanging out by the pool in old pictures from the 60's.

Scandic Foresta is located on the Lidingö Island just one bridge from Stockholm (about 7 km from the downtown). We had a car, thus it was very convenient to go back and forth to downtown. The parking is 90 SEK for 24 hours. If you do not have a car, you can take the public bus and subway. The hotel... More
