This hotel was a good solid hotel. The breakfast was plentiful and the location was ideal. My only complaint is that the a/c could not cool the room and there was nothing they could do about it. They brought up some small fans, but at the end of the day, don't advertise that you have a/c if it doesn't work.... More

This hotel offers a superb location in the center of Stockholm with walking distance to shopping and many attractions (including the Royal Palace and Old Town). Hotel is clean and provides relatively large rooms and excellent service.

The location is fantastic, just a few steps from TCentralen. The rooms are much larger than usual for a city centre Scandic and the price was not tooo...excessive (Stockholm is always expensive) but there is a rather dated feeling to this hotel, as if it is stuck in 1988. As others have said, bathrooms are very old. The staff however... More

Staff are nice. Breakfast is pretty big with a good selection and their staff work tirelessly to keep it stocked during the rush. Location is next to the pedestrian walkway that goes all the way south to Gamla Stan. There is some pedestrian street noise depending on your room location.

Functional & towards budget price . Clean & ok sized room , view of a wall . Always a bit annoying with these shower set ups that soak the whole bathroom.Location above PUB department store was very handy & the breakfast was pretty good in nice surroundings. May use again.

Excellent location for walking tours, 25 minutes away from the airport (by car). The room was Ok but the bathroom was quite old. Wide variety of high quality products for the breakfast. For a short stay, is very recommended.

I stayed in hotel for 3 nights during a business trip and I was definetly not impressed. Good things first, hotel location is perfect with a walk distance to train station or to city center and the bed in the room was very comfortable. But that is more or less all. The room I had for approximately 290 € per... More

We recently stayed for a weekend at this hotel which benefits from a central location within walking distance from / to the train station.
