We stayed 3 nights and were very pleased with this hotel. The service was very friendly. The rooms are clean, the view from our room was fantastic. Breakfast was very good as well, the best we've had for a long time. I especially loved the tea selection. The city centre is a bit off but the bus stops a block... More

I stayed at this hotel with my two children, aged 18 months and 8. The double room I booked with the two beds next to each other was perfect for me and the oldest girl, and for the youngest the hotel delivered a wooden crib on wheels with mattress and bedding, and a set of extra towels. The crib did... More

Stayed in junior suite with our family of 2 adults+2 children. Room(s) was very nice, but when made reservation I thought suites would be at the sea side and had a view to Stockholm. We had sea view but most of it were covered by the older part of hotel. Rooms starting with 1-6xx are in the new wing (yellow... More

The view is lovely - I've stayed here twice, once on medium floor, once in their top suite after asking to change from a smaller suite. The staff were helpful both times, we asked to switch rooms as the fan outside our first suite was very loud and we were moved without any questions asked or extra charge. Breakfast is... More

Hi! We are glad you liked the view and that you find the staff helpful! It is correct that we don't have jacuzzi, just a regular bath tub that is a little bit bigger than normal. I would like to apologize if it was anyone in our staff that gave you the wrong information. We hope to see you as... More

Really a pity that Scandic hotels can NOT manage the hotel better. The view is fantastic. Gorgeous. And yet close to the center of Stockholm. Location is good. They are only 2 minutes away (walk) from the famous Milles Gård museum and if you walk down the slope towards the water, you can catch a train that goes to the... More

We have stayed in this hotel before (we negotiated a good price on their top suite - great!). This time a relative from Japan stayed one night in a room with a very nice view. But...

Generally, staying in any Scandic is not supposed to bring one any surprise – the concept is well-known (well, at least in Scandinavia) and does not imply any luxury or other “business” features. For a family stay it is though a perfect place. Scandic Foresta is even better: close to an old-fashioned (from 70th) commuter train station which connects to... More

Scandic Foresta has been around a while, you can see it if you scrutinize the rooms, but time is fair and good hotels last. Foresta is most certainly one of the good ones.

Very Scandinavian hotel, i.e. quite simple and basic. Needless to say, a) it does the job b) the rooms are comfortable and very well heated (for the stockholm winters!) c) lovely service from the reception staff !
