The hotel is situated in the centre of town, that is an advantadge. But the hotel has very small rooms (we booked two economy rooms but they were very small, we just managed to get our luggage out of the way for a clear path to the bathroom) and the restaurant area where they serve the breakfast buffet isn't equipped...

We were looking for a hotel in an emergency and we find Scandic Byparken and was satisfied with it. We was traveling with small daughter and we needed extra bed. Since we arrived to the hotel in 5 minutes after booking, staff gave us excellent service. Since all extra bed was already in use they show us 3 numbers where... More

Stayed in room with husband and two Tweens. Room very generously sized. Clean and well set. Breakfast buffet was huge and had an excellent selection of items that appealed to everyone. Very good location.

We spent 3 nights here in June. Our room was spacious and clean. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was best hotel breakfast I've ever had. The bus from the airport stops a half block from the hotel. It is centrally located, close to the fish market, old section, museums, etc. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay here... More

The hotel is conveniently situated close to the city center (and most of what there is to see is close in this small town). Staff is very friendly and rooms are clean but small. Breakfast was excellent (I stayed here for 6 nights during July), there is a vast collection of cold and warm food, freshly prepared eggs and so... More

The staff at this hotel was super friendly, happy and helpful. The location is fantastic and close to everything. The rooms were a little disappointing and dated. The bed was quite small and although a queen, had two separate duvet covers on. They provided a mini bar but it was empty. There was no view as we were at the... More

I stayed for two nights on a month-long road trip around Scandinavia, paying £150 per night for a superior room. On arrival we were upgraded to a junior suite, which was at roof level and therefore thankfully quiet. The area around the hotel looks rather run-down, although it is close to all the major art galleries and concert halls and... More

The room & shower room were very small however I liked the location and the breakfast. The breakfast had many choices and very good quality. I specially enjoyed the salmon. This hotel has no car park however there is a car park near by and you get 30% off discount from the hotel.

Hotel is clean, service is friendly. We were upgraded to a suite which is very nice of them. However given the size of the suite I would hate to see how small the standard rooms were. This was one of the smaller suites I have been in. TV costs extra. Breakfast is v. good. Some great juice shots. Plenty to... More
