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,...

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...

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...

Most of the rooms are old and have not been renovated in decades. I've stayed in a few different rooms and in one the heating didn't work, in another the bed side lamps were out, in the latest there was an electric outlet without cover and wires exposed. The beds quite hard and feel like they should have been replaced...

Stayed here for two nights (friday-sunday) on a conference weekend. The rooms are ok, but nothing extraordinary. The hotel staff is kind and friendly, but only do what is required, they don't go the extra mile to let you feel special, but instead treat you like any other guest. There was one in the staff however, Timothy, who did everything...
