Located right in the heart of the city, and with underground parking available ( but at a price!) this is an excellent place to stay and then visit the City Centre - which really is on the doorstep. Rooms are very 'wooden' - and the pillows !!! - Something I never get on with when travelling abroad - they resemble... More

We stayed there on a business trip last May. It certianly is on a very good location, just 5 mins walk from the canal and right on the Jonkoping's main street. The rooms were wide enough, the hotel was clean in general and the breakfast buffet had a wide variety of choices, all in good quality. Very good service from... More

It is situated in the middle of Jönköping so you are real close to everything included the trainstation. The hotel is a bit shabby on its way to decline so it is definitely in dire need of renovation. Staff is real good so that is a plusfactor.

Good business hotel in Jönköping. Situated in the middle of town. Nice clean room. Has a car park in the basement which is really good. Nice bar on the ground floor. Good breakfast room (actually have seldom seen such a busy breakfast room) and nice breakfast, quite typical for Sweden. All in all a nice business hotel.

This hotel was subpar for a Scandic location. The room did not measure up to the price (200 euros). The breakfast though is extremely good. For some reason this hotel does not provide facial tissues in the bathroom, and this during the cold season. My room had a nice big tub that I wanted to use but there was no... More

Standard double room - no surprise, good or bad, just another hotel room, Sauna on the 7 floor has a nice few over the city center. Good breakfast buffet. Nothing fancy ... For 1 or 2 nights all you need and have to have but its missing some kind of a AHA effect.

A somewhat worn down but overall nice and clean hotel. Excellent location downtown and parking space under hotel. The room we had was spacious for two and comfortable. Good breakfast with a lot to choose from. Nice move to have the minibar moved to reception area but keep the fridge in the room for guests to chill own stuff. But... More

Rooms were just average with hard beds. Hard to sleep since the walls were paper thin and street noise and partying all night long just across the street. I don't think the hotel was full and I would have thought the receptionist could have located us on the opposite of street side. Very disappointing.
