“Nice stay at Scandic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Scandic has simple and practical solutions that we like. Also breakfast hours are extended to maximum which is very nice for people who hate waking up to early. The ice machine on the corridor is great! The restaurant serves tasty food in a pretty surrounding and breakfast area offers a lot of different food you can choose from. Late check-ins are no problem and to contact about it is easy and fast. Also a great view for Vartahamnen and ferries passing by.

Everything was as expected, to Scandic standards. An ok room, a great breakfast and dinner. The sauna and gym was a positive surprise.

The lack of trays at breakfast complicated things, both for visitors and for staff.

The hotel is situated right by the ferries to Estonia, perfect for those who wish to cruise.It is not walking distance to the center of Stockholm, but there are good train connection nearby.
Location of the hotel is in a port area, there is ni restaurants nearby.

The hotel is ok - nothing outstanding but also nothing to complain about. The restaurant menu is limited yet the quality of the food is ok to good and not too expensive. Same for the Sky Bar on the 17th floor which has a limited bar menu but the Burger is excellent. The view from the SkyBar is quite nice too and they have a large TV generally showing sports.

The rooms are sparse and dont have tea/coffee facilities but do have an ironing board and iron.

The bathrooms only seem to have showers and the room turns into a wetroom after a shower and can be a bit slippy.

The TV has a USB connection so you can bring your own movies to play directly and the free internet wifi is very fast and reliable.

Overall, if you have a need to stay in the Gardet area and are not too fussed about the frills of a 4 or 5 * hotel, The Scandic Ariadne is an ok choice overall.

I also stay here because every member of staff I have interacted with is smiley, pleasant and courteous and all seem very willing to provide great customer service.

Room Tip: Try to get a high room and facing away from the water as when there is fog the ferries coming into S...

Hotel is nice, good food, big market is very near (Bimago). The location is not very good: to go to the city centre you need walk 10min to metro station and take 2 stops. By walk it takes about 45 min.

Nice for business, conference.

We stayed for 4 nights in late July due to both price and accessibility to the Frihamnen Cruise Port. We made good choices on both counts! Decent hotels are quite pricy in Stockholm in summer; Scandic Ariadne was not cheap, but was very reasonable in comparison to other options. (By joining the free "Scandic Friends" loyalty program prior to booking the room and booking on the Scandic website, we saved quite a bit on the room price.) The hotel is well-maintained and the staff is both pleasant to deal with and helpful when called upon. We were upgraded from a Standard to a Superior room at no extra charge. There were record-high temps throughout our stay in Stockholm, and Scandic Ariadne was one of the few hotels with air conditioning (folks we cruised with following our hotel stay complained that they had no AC in their hotels)...boy, were we lucky! With a bus stop 100 yards (3 minutes) from the hotel, we were just one bus stop (and a 1/2 mile walk) from the cruise port, and about 10 minutes from the heart of Stockholm...very convenient. A supermarket is located at the bus stop, for those who need/want one. Scandic Ariadne is supposed to be a "family-friendly" hotel, so we were concerned about having too many kids running around (it was shortly before summer vacation ended). Though we encountered families at the hotel, the hotel had kids areas where they could play without interrupting other guests, and the presence of kids was minimal. They were also well-controlled by their parents. The buffet breakfast was extensive and excellent. Staff was very attentive to replenishing everything promptly. WiFi was great at the hotel. We'd stay here again, without doubt!

Room Tip: Join the free Scandic Friends loyalty program. Upper floors were very quiet; don't know about l...
