Scandic Sjofartshotellet

Reviewed October 18, 2011

We enjoyed the Scandic Sjofartshotellet very much. The hotel was very nicely decorated; the room was comfortable and clean; staff was very helpful; complimentary breakfast was good. Best of all, its location was perfect for us. We had a balcony (as did all of the rooms on our side of the hotel) that provided a wonderful view of the water and the city. We walked to the subway stop and boat launch (useful for getting to those islands that were more readily accessible by way of boat) in just a few minutes. And we easily walked to all areas of the city (north and south of the hotel). It was rather central for our purposes and for that alone I'd recommend the hotel. But it was entirely comfortable and attractive as well. Don't let its facade fool you!

When I arrived at the hotel I was very dissapointed, it looks very dull and more like a run down hostel. But the reception area is ok and the staff friendly. The room was small but nice and mine had a very nice view of the cruice ship harbour. Breakfast was standard "Swedish" with the usual selection, nothing fancy but ok.

We stayed in the Scandic Sjofartshotel for 3 nights in august 2011. We got a 3-nights-for-2 special offer and got top (7th) floor superior plus room with own balcony/terrace. The room was nothing fancy but clean and big enough and we had a perfect view from our terrace on the harbor.
What was somewhat bothering was hotels' summer terrace right next to our room terrace which was playing loud music until 1 pm - impossible to get asleep even with earplugs. The next day we asked to be moved to another room, the staff was helpful and we got a normal (small, no terrace, smaller bed) room but were happy as the room was on the other side of the building and quiet.
There is no air conditioning in the rooms, we could use one as we were lucky enough to have warm weather during our stay!

Nevertheless, this hotel has many pro's:
* the location: all places of interest are just a walking distance from the hotel, the hotel also provides bikes to explore remote parts of Stockholm)
* good breakfast (good choice of everything, fresh fruit etc.)
* extremely helpful and nice staff* free wi-fi
* good bed (not too soft, not too hard)

We would stay in this hotel again but would make sure we get a room on the quite end from the terrace (in summer).

Room Tip: Rooms in top (7th) floor at the corridor end and the harbor view are the noisiest in summer (summer...

The hotel very much was pleasant! Its main advantage - an location in city centre, from the Old city on foot 5 minutes. Doubleroom in hotel was huge, all is pure, beds soft, only the hair dryer worked with faults. A breakfast - the buffet, a wide choice. After a breakfast there was no sensation of hunger all the day long. Near to reception there is a rack with the computer and an exit in the Internet (free of charge). The personnel English-speaking. In general, I recommend, especially, if you walk on a city till the night that it was then convenient to reach hotel, since a taxi in Stockholm the expensive.

A roof terrace sounds lovely and charming, we were looking forward to using this feature. However, what the hotel does not advertise is that they have a LIVE DJ and VERY LOUD MUSIC on Saturday nights!! Adding both noise and extra traffic (drunk club guests) in the hotel at this time. I would NOT have chosen this hotel had I known about this Saturday activity! We were travelling with an elderly parent who cannot be expected to stay up until 1:00 a.m. even on a good day.

We were not in town to party all night, we were there to enjoy the city in the daytime and evening, do some sight seeing etc. The loud music keep us up until the club closed at 01:00 a.m. - OK fine, I can handle it... but the guests who continued to party in their rooms after the closing of the club time kept us awake until 5 a.m. despite calling the front desk 3 times!!!!!!!

Nothing was done to resolve this problem!! They called the room once asking them to keep it down - which they did not - and left it at that. The front desk person basically told me that since they were not playing loud music or anything in the room there was nothing they could do. "You cannot forbid someone to talk in their rooms." (his words - not mine)

Apparently it is OK for people to have a party (with guests) in the room and keep the neighboring hotel guests up all night laughing, talking, slamming the door every 20 minutes going out to smoke (and coming back in again 5 minutes later)... then finally having loud sex until wee hours of the morning. I am not overly sensitive, that is completely disrespectful!

We could not sleep DESPITE using ear plugs!! The walls are paper thin and the whole bed shook everytime the door slammed. We stayed on floors 6 and 4, I cannot imagine how bad it must have been on the top floor where the terrace is located. Unruly guests exist everywhere, this is not the hotels fault. But what made me desperately disappointed was the nonchalant treatment we received from the night staff.

Never again will I stay here!!

Clean and convenient but not exciting. The rooftop bar had great views and the breakfast was good.

The hotel is in a great location, in walking distance to the old city and palace area, and near the Metro if you need to go further afield. While not inexpensive (nothing in Sweden is) the cost was substantially less than other hotels in the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet, buy quite small, especially for 2 people. However we did not find he room to be uncomfortable. The breakfast was fine and served until 10AM--we were not rushed at all when we were there. There is a lively bar which stays open late.
Overall this hotel is a good choice for people who want a relatively economical hotel in a great location.
