We arrived late at night and the receptionist received us with a big smile, the check-in was really fast. The room was big and well equipped. The next day we had a very good variety of food for breakfast, and the restaurant area was nice and comfortable. The only bad thing we saw is that the hallways needed a small... More

The hotel is very nice, offers free wi-fi and is the best in the area. Scandic offers a high level service and stands up to scandic standards. A special note is on the renovated restaurant. The new design is very elegant and it creates a very pleasant environment. Also the new menu is a huge improvement: new menu offers very... More

I stayed for one night during a business trip. The hotel was ordinary and the room could due with an update. However, I fell ill during my stay and asked for some assistance with food and drinks to the room. Even though there is no room service available, they provided excellent help and even more than I asked for. For... More

Great service when I arrived - and when I left as well - After going to the gym, I longed for a glass of Soy Milk (I know - strange taste) and to my surprise, the lady @ the bar gave me an extra large glass (she must've seen I felt worn out :-)... next time i'm in the area... More

We always stay here if we can when doing business in the local area but it is often fully booked early in the week - you need to book 2 weeks ahead. The reception is always friendly, the room are comfortable and clean and the breakfasts pretty good.

I stayed here because I have business nearby, and would probably not stay here if I could make my own choice. Perhaps I was just a little unlucky with the room, but this was really drab and tired stuff that could do with a facelift. Breakfast was good, staff was nice and the lobby looked nice enough, but the room... More
