The standard of this hotel is amazing! Despite our holiday being plagued by problems, we always could rely on The Scandic Sjoylst. Even when an online hotel site hadn't actually booked us a room, the receptionist found a room for us despite the fact that it was there busiest time of the summer (there was a fashion show going on)....

I chose this hotel because it was close to where a friend lives who I was visiting, and not for any other reason. As others have said, the rooms seemed a bit tired, and in need of a make-over. The staff were helpful, the restaurant area nice, breakfast great, and lots of good restaurants nearby. The area seems to be... More

The hotel is close to our office and therefore used much. The hotel has nice personell and efficient check-in and check-out. Breakfast is good. What is really needed is an upgrade of the rooms, and aircon(not in place) Will not stay here during summer.

Had to stay here 1 night for a wedding. The room was hot, the window barely opened, and apparently no air con. We called the reception and they said there was nothing we could do. At night, guests were standing out talking very loudly, from about 3-8 AM and we couldn't shut the window in order to avoid suffocation. There... More

At least you know what you get when you stay in a Scandic hotel. Comfy bed, but it stays there. At least this hotel is close to the trainstation for easy/cheap access to/from airport. And there are plenty of small restaurants in the area if you dont want to eat at the hotel. But thats pretty much it, doubt if... More
