Cleaning was made, but techinical problems not solved. In addition room is very modets and not too luxurious. All of that is for the price higher than competitors in the neighboorhood. I... More

The reception staff was very friendly and serviceminded! I found the Public area in the lobby very nice, and one could read newspapers, take an apple etc. in nice surroundings. But the corridor on the 5th floor where we were staying was really terrible, especially the carpet. The room was small, but clean. A better location for taking Public transport... More

The Scandic Byporten was suggested by my client, but it was a disappointment from beginning to end. The room I had booked was in an area due to be renovated - I was offered a refurbished room, but of a lower standard than the one I booked. I kept my original booking, but the room was tatty, not very clean... More

We stayed just one night. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Without even needing to ask a crib was placed in the room for our son. Breakfast was good and had a large section. The ruins were very clean. A number of other reviews mentioned how the bathroom water took a while to heat up. This wasn't our experience. Water... More

There is no too much in terms of luxury but the location is perfect to whom want to be very well located into the city centre. The hotel is connected to the Central Station, meaning you can go everywhere by train and subway without step outside the hotel.
