I give this hotel a very generous 3-star rating, but in reality it offers a below average accommodation for the following reasons: Room - The rooms are bright and good size by European standards, but cleaning is poor. Upon check-in I noticed black stains on the hardwood floor and despite multiple requests, the floor was not mopped until my third... More

This is a basic hotel by the convention center. The service was rather poor. They forgot to clean our room, there was no shower gel and the internet had issues to connect to our devices. Housekeeping is only working during the day. The rooms are ok, but with a small TV. The only positive was the breakfast. During the summer... More

Unfortunately I didn't like much about this hotel. It took a long time to check in even though the hotel felt empty. Once in my room there was no toilet paper and no tissues, that was obviously a mistake but what was deliberate was no amenities. No shampoo, lotion etc, nothing in the mini bar, no water, nothing. The rooms... More

My wife, 2 kids (ages 7 and 10) and I had a 4-night stay in this conference hotel in Alvsjö, using it as a base to explore Stockholm. The hotel itself is about a 5 minute walk (rather steep incline) from the Alvsjö station, and there is a roof over most of the path which helps when it rains. Trains... More

The only reason to stay there is if your meeting is being held there. The rooms are small, badly kept and simple. Very simple breakfast. Lunch served at the restaurant was terrible. The only positive aspect was the reception's staff, who were helpful whenever needed.

This is the best possible choice for trips related to activities in the Stockholmsmässan conference centre which is literally next door. I have visited Stockholm twice, both times for business in the conference centre, the first time I stayed in the city centre and the next in the Scandic. My feeling was that it is not really convenient for sightseeing... More

We recently stayed six nights at this hotel while attending a conference at the Stockholm Convention Centre which adjoins this hotel. The room rate was too excessive (even for Sweden) for its quality, and facilities offered. This hotel was formerly Rica Talk Hotel, and the rooms need updating. In the parking garage level of the hotel is a small sauna,... More

This hotel is poor value. Because it is next to the conference centre and I presume can count on custom it makes no effort. The foyer is looks like a pre 1989 East German hotel. there is no room service. NO minibar and no coffee making facilities in the rooms. The breakfast is passable, but the rest of the food... More

Connected to the Stockholm conference hall, it is the closest and most convenient for those attending meetings. 2-3 train stops away from the town center. Quite a ways from the airport. Rooms are reasonably sizes, clean. Good outlets and USB plug in locations for the business traveler. A little on the expensive side for what it is, but that is... More

Stayed at the above hotel for 4 days. The hotel is modern and clean. Breakfast needs improvement, there is no fish option (Salmon, Kippers, Prawn) that is commonly available in Scandinavian hotels. Banana appeared once during my stay. Cheese is a poor quality. No mushrooms!. Scrambled eggs not good at all and there is no fried egg at all and... More
