Went here on a trip with my job, we also had a conference at the hotel. This was the second time I visited this hotel and it's located wonderful in the middle of the town, close to all restaurants and shopping in Jönköping. The rooms are normal, which is big enough. It's very quiet during the nights, so it's easy to get a good nights sleep. When you wake up the best is waiting for you, the breakfast, maybe there was more choices last time, but this time it was good, so I'm happy with this stay.

Hej
Jag kan inte annat än hålla med dig om att läget är väldigt bra. Och att starta dagen med en god frukost är inte fel det heller!

Jag önskar dig varmt välkommen tillbaka.

I stayed here one night on a business trip for a conference. As such, it's one of those trips where you actually spend very little time in the hotel!

The room was OK, and the bathroom was OK also. A little dated. Didn't sleep overly well. You can hear people on the street outside as they leave the local clubs, but it wasn't overly obtrusive. Breakfast was good - everything you could want and good quality. The staff at reception were very friendly, although a little overwhelmed when more than a few people try to check-out at the same time!

Good central location - walking distance to everywhere we wanted to be. I'd stay here again, but I'd also check what other options there are nearby...

Hej
Tack för att du tog dig tid att skriva. Om du har tid över i Jönköping så tipsar vi dig gärna om vad som finns att hitta på! Eller varför inte unna dig lite avkoppling med ett besök på Nordic Wellness Atlantis Spa som ligger vägg i vägg med hotellet?

Kul att du uppskattar vår frukost och att du fick ett trevligt bemötande av personalen.

Jag önskar dig varmt välkommen tillbaka.

The Scandic Portalen is a very nice basic hotel that ticks a few boxes to make it that little bit more enjoyable.

The rooms are basic but well kept, the beds are comfy but make use of the extra pillow. It's my 5th stay here and the staff have always been willing to go that extra mile.

The basics are covered well, good hot shower. Fast stable internet and comfortable beds.

The Breakfast is exceptionally fresh with a good variety for everyone.

An added little bonus is they supply HDMI cables to the large flatscreen TV in the room allowing you to connect your laptop to the larger screen. You can also connect a USB Hard Drive to the tv to play any movies etc you have on the big screen. This is provided free of charge and is one of the little comforts that show where they go beyond your average hotel of this price.

The hotel is in the centre of Jönköping close to lots of amenities. I haven't tried the hotel restaurant as there are lots of nice little places close to the hotel. It's also very close to the main bus station.

One reviewer commented about the nightclub at the end of the week, it does get quite loud until around midnight so bare this in mind if you are a light sleeper and maybe request a higher floor room. There are 8 floors.

Hello!
Thank you for your review - it was a pleasure to read! We always try to go the extra mile for our guests and it is good to hear that you think we do! You can always ask for an extra pillow at the front desk and when you can check in, you can always ask for a quiet room and we will try our best to make that happen.
Thank you again and we hope to see you soon. You are always welcome to us at Scandic Portalen!

Narrow bed along a wall, less than helpful personnel (didn´t even know how to find their garage), terrible food in the restaurant. Rundown breakfast restaurant. Priced as a luxury hotel in a metropolis but with the standard of a third class hotel in the countryside. Not worth a third of the price.

Good hotel, good location but if you are on business and stay Thursday evening expect very little sleep as the nightclub adjoining the hotel and below the rooms has pounding music until the early hours and you have no chance of keeping until it closes.
