Scandic Karlskrona
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Karlskrona

This is another hotel where it is worth paying extra for the view... you either look at town, or over the harbour - the later is far preferable.
It features pure scandinavian design at every point, clean, crisp and perfectly functional. The staff are great, the food is good, and it is in a great location.
Nice touches were too many to mention - a really nice hotel.

Room Tip: Get a harbour view

The staff are friendly, the breakfast is good, the rooms are modern, convenient and comfortable, my only negative point is that there are no English speaking newspapers at all. This has been addressed twice already still no English newspapers!

I must say I think the Scanic hotels are only ok, they never surprises you.
This time I was wrong!! I am happy to recommend this one, the rooms are fresh, Scandinavian plain. But the hotels view by the sea is stunning, I am surprised that its facade, dark and rather unusual for the area, make the total impression so great, airy interior, the sea so close.
Would love to go back!
And great food too!

Stayed here on business in August, a good hotel but let down by no one bothering to tell me that the car park in which the hotel stands is a council car park and requires a parking ticket to be displayed.

I therefore had the pleasure of a 300DK fine in the morning. I questioned the hotel as the web site says there is free parking at the hotel but I was then told their parking was around the corner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would have been so simple to have told me this at check in.

Room Tip: Must ask or room over looking the marina.

We stayed in the scandic karlskrona in June 2012. The hotel appears to be reltively new. The room we stayed in looked out over the bay which was stunning. The room was bright with plenty room. Very clean hotel with excellent central location. The hotel has an airport bus stop only 1minute walk from reception and approx 5 minute walk to the main square. I would highly recommend this hotel

I've stayed at Scandic one night on a spontaneous weekend getaway to Sweden (by car/ferry).

Hotel have a very modern design. Thanks to many wooden accents it doesn't feel cold or empty.

Hotel rooms have a wooden floor instead of a carpet, which is a little bit awkward, but it looks nice. Room decor is also very modern and modest. I went for the cheapest room, so there was two twin beds joined as king. Beds had wheels and not very good brakes, so no hugging and cuddling on bed, you'll move away form each other with whole bed in a second. Bed have electric mattress regulation that is very nice comfortable and fun, so it makes up for not being able to sleep on your partner shoulder.

Bathroom was a little bit like in a hospital (white tiles on walls and floor). But it was clean spacious, and had heated floor.

Breakfast was included even in the cheapest rate. Buffet was very nice with large selection of food. It was a bit crowded but dining area is large so it wasn't an issue.

Hotel location is very spectacular. It's on the waterfront, so if the weather is not so good for walking I'd definitely pay little extra for the room with the view.

Parking was free.

I stayed in the Scandic for one night whilst on business. Can't fault the place. Brand new clean modern hotel with all the facilities you could want - free wi-fi, great wet room bathroom. The hotel is in a great location right by the water front. Short walk into the town centre. The hotel offers free parking which is a two minute walk from the hotel but when the car park next door is 60Kr per day I was happy to walk. Bar is ok and breakfast was fine. Overall I would thoroughly recommend this hotel if you are in Karlskrona.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the bay
