We stayed at Scandic Palace before our baltic cruise. July 12-15th 3 nights. Booked it though a booking agent but booked when it was SPG/Lemeridien and under construction. Got a great rate and I emailed to check on when the reservation when they went though the take over and got a quick note back confirming our reservation. Because we had the cheap rate as mention prior some one was denied breakfast but we weren't and the staff could not have not been nicer. One of the helpers in the breakfast area I got to know and asked if I could try the pancake which was on the childs menu. And the next morning she brought me one when I enter the area. Great on special attention. Room was small but well done by european standards. We over looked the city center but again aware of the older hotels the windows are only single pane. The staff could not have been more helpful. I would return in a minute.
