In overall, rooms were quite clean, beds were comfortable and staff was very friendly. Only minus is breakfast hall was a bit small comparing the room amount of the whole hotel.We suffered to find an empty table although we came to eat before 8 a.m.

Hotel had a good and friendly service and our room was big enough for 3 of us. Beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. If you prefer to stay close to... More

Scandic Talk was chosen due to the proximity of the event I was attending as I normally prefer to stay downtown Stockholm. Staff was friendly upon arrival and even if I was early they managed to find a room for me. Being hotel in the Scandic chain I was pleasantly surprised over how modern the room felt in all aspects.... More

A good hotel, with clean and tidy, wonderful breakfast. The location is just link to the exhibition hall, and link to the airport via J38 train, about 50 minutes. It is colse to the Alvsjo station, only two stops to the city.
