Departing early the next morning, no offer of breakfast take away. Bad air quality in the room due to the closed windows. Parking cars facing the window outside. Shrinking carpet covers a dried smelly cloth. A lady receptionist performed that she was troubled, and had no patience to help. 无早餐打包服务,尽管早出发。房间窗户不能打开,即使市内空气质量很差。窗外一米处是停泊的车辆,即使住在三楼。褶皱的地毯下暗藏着一块已经干掉了的发霉的布。一位女前台服务很被动,而且给人的感觉是她被别人打扰了。

At first, this hotel seemed like it was going to be a bit distant from the happenings of Stockholm. The public transit system is super easy, though. Ask at the front desk for directions down the winding path to the nearest train station. It's a pleasant walk and the train comes frequently. Zip across the water, to your waiting transfer,... More

Splendid view overlooking the water and Lidingö bridge. Spacious room, quality beds. Friendly and efficient services. Access to city center is easier than it may seem: 5 min downhill walk to tramway stop "Torsvik", 3 min ride to metro station "Ropsten" on the red line, tramway departs every 20 min.

We stayed for a week here, which is on a small island just outside of Stockholm. The rooms are tidy and decent. The location is just a short, but steep, walk to the train. They have a dynamite breakfast including gluten free items, eggs, bacon, herring, fresh breads...etc. The people there were simply awesome! The staff was accommodating and friendly,... More

I have visited Foresta several times and sometimes you get lucky and you get a stunning view towards the sea and other times you are looking at the parking lot. The restaurant is slightly better than Scandic restaurants in general. There must be something about the location since it boast of having visitors like The Beatles and Josephine Baker, but... More

This hotel is designed to accommodate families and not the business traveler. The price point also attracts young, loud partygoers, particularly on the weekend, which is fine if that is what you are looking for. For the most part the staff, especially the front desk, were great except for the bistro where service was 'hit or miss'.

Sitting up above the river this hotel enjoys an excellent location for extended views across the river / city and beyond. A warm reception and helpful staff make for a comfortable stay. The superior rooms seem to have been supplied with 3/4 beds though - so for a couple staying just check what bed you room has before you settle... More
