Too often Scandic hotels can seem a bit too New Age soulless but this one had lots of character. The room was well sized and the staff on reception were helpful. The lobby has a nice seating area with lots of candles lit around logs and is cosy on the dark nights. Very good central location and very clean.

Stayed for a week at Scandic CH for a work related issue; the rooms are decent sized with a good bathroom plus the hotel is centrally located with many good restaurants.. HOWEVER... for the price you (or the employer) will pay; don't expect too much from the pillows - they're as soft and comfy as a barbed wire.. and that... More

Stayed here for two nights on our way round Sweden. The rooms are OK nothing special but adequate enough, don't expect it to be a five star hotel but enough of all you need is a bed and a shower.

A bit old and tired hotel. Superior room is ok in size. No minibar or fridge in room. Beds not that comfortable, pillows are small. Restaurant did not serve a la carte food which was a disappointment. Reception staff nice and service minded. Breakfast was brilliant, but during holiday seasons there should be a family room for all the roaming... More

Very nice and clean hotel. Rooms are not big but they are very comfortable and quiet. An excellent point for their rooms, rarely seen in hotels around the world: they have very nice hardwood floors and no trace of carpet.

Easy to get to and close to the town center and the train station. The rooms were tiny, like nowere-to-put-the-bag-tiny (if you've been to a cheap hotel in London you know what I'm talking about). The room felt very old and outdated. Nothing broken or dirty but just a bad flashback to the 80s (yes, flashback, not flashdance...). I would... More
