“A good choice”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

I was gIven this accommodation by a client, so did not make the choice myself but it was a nice surprise to find a nice modern hotel. The room was a little on the small size, it was a bit of an odd shape which did not help but it was modern, clean and comfortable.

I did pack gym kit for my week as the hotel does list a gym as one of its facilities but one look at the 'gym' and it was clear there was not much of a workout to be done, it is basically a closet with two running machines in. Far too small. Shame

Breakfast was a huge choice of different things from hot cooked eggs, bacon etc to cereals, cold meats, breads and pastries. A real highlight.

I will probably choose to go here if I am asked for a preference next time.

Fresh hotel, good breakfast and restaurant. Excellent location. And the beds are comfortable.
But I miss one detail; coat-hangers in the room, just a few hangers in the wardrobe for shirts.
Had to put our outer jackets on the floor. :-(
Lobby and restaurant is very nice if you like music.
No minibar, and no glasses if you bring your own.

Stayed 5 nights at the Scandic Grand Central.
Pros: breakfast (amazing and included), jazz venue in the bar area, great restaurant and great cafe. Its got a gym (which I failed to visit...), many lifts, great lobby, convenient location, free and working wifi (descent speed too), good tv, tasteful decor.
Cons: i had a couple of issues with cleanliness. Upon arrival i found there was a blood stain under the fitted sheet (on the mattress protector which should have been changed). It took 2 requests at reception to get it changed...
And one day the bathroom wasn't cleaned. Only the towels had been changed (which shouldn't have been even changed since i didn't leave them on the floor and carefully hung back up after use in the morning).

Certainly more pros than cons but lack of hygiene is a major turn off for me.
Could have been perfect. :(

This hotel is well located if visiting Stockholm. Close to central station with easy access to the Arlanda express for the airport.

Has a lively bar in Friday and Saturday nights but I didn't hear any noise from it when I went to sleep (4th floor room above bar).

Breakfast has a wide choice of options and is open for a good length of time which will suit business travellers and families alike.

This hotel is located centrally in Stockholm with just a few minutes walking distance to the harbor and the central station. The standard rooms are not very big but very nice and clean - but that's a Scandinavia thing I guess. Lots of things to choose from at breakfast, I even went for the herring which was very nice. There's always lots of activity going on in the hall: people working on their laptops or just enjoying a coffee. Did I mention the wireless internet is free and of decent quality?
The bar is big and with a nice vibe, not only hotel guests seem to find their way to it.

The locations great, the rooms for perfect for a business trip or if you are only got to sleep in them.
However, only an average rating as the gym is tiny. Good luck trying to do a workout, even if you're the only one trying. But more than likely it'll be packed. Breakfast was as you'd expect, certainly nothing special.

The hotel initially placed us in a hotel room on level 01 which is at street level.
The room was very cold and it was not possible to get it warm (outside it was minus 6).
The central heating system for some reason did not manage to stay on, and the small electic heater which was provided was not sufficient and was only brought after several calls to the front desk (which did not answer the phone after the first calls).

The first time we asked for a room change because of the cold, this was not possible (which was told us by a rather unfriendly employee). Only after two nights (out of 4) we were placed in another room following the action of (this time) a friendly front desk employee. This room was pleasantly warm and changed the whole experience of staying in this hotel.

Room Tip: Definitely don't take the rooms at streetlevel (0113), at least not in winter!
