Scandic Malmen
Ranked #87 of 155 Hotels in Stockholm
Reviewed March 10, 2012

First the ROOM. We had a room on the fifth, facing into the internal space of the hotel. No issues noise whatsoever. The room is small but bijou, small and elegant. Good TV, good and free wifi and small but functional shower room. The bed is not the size of an african state, but is more than adequate unless you are each 22st.

LOCATION - bang in the middle of the trendy Sodermalm district. It is walkable to most of interest in Stockholm and right on top of the metro stop if you want that too. 3 stops from central station.

BREAKFAST - was included in our room. Well worth it. Very good selection and setting. The bar is used, glass windows to the front make it good to watch what's going on on the street. Newspapers provided here too.

GETTING THERE - from ARLANDA if there are two of you or more, go for a cab rather than the very pricey ARLANDA EXPRESS which is £50 each return. It'll be cheaper.

PRICE - Stockholm is expensive. It *is just* expensive!

Stayed there over three nights Thurs to Sat.

Hope this is helpful.

Room Tip: Go high to avoid noise from popular (and good) ground floor bar

The hotel makes a trendy and modern impression; the room we got was big enough and clean, and everything looked modern and new. The area itself in Stockholm isn't that attractive, but it's very easy to reach the old city center: the subway station is beneath the hotel and Gamla Stan is just three stops away. Very nice breakfast (though in a big room with dim lights and no windows), free use of internet in the lobby. Great place to rest after exploring the great town of Stockholm!

Location is perfect - in the middle of Gotgatan in the heart of swanky Sodermalm. Problems are noise (ask for a room high up) and disappointing rooms: a double room features a bed fit for 1.5 persons (not two) and the smallest bathroom I have seen in a long time (I am talking about a bathroom the size you see in a small cabin on a cruise where the shower is above the toilet). Cleanliness of bathroom was also marginal. They are renovating the rooms in the hotel now and my room was one of the renovated ones so I was expecting more... Anyway, price was ok but this is not the Scandic chain we all know and love... Therefore I left there with mixed feelings. Bottom line: if you can find and afford another hotel in Sodermalm - don't bother with the Scandic.

We have different room categories some are smaller and some are larger. If you are not happy with your room you are always welcome to ask for another one in the reception and hopefully we can find a room suitable for you. If you know that you are sensitive to noise it is always good to ask for a room high up in the building as we are located in a busy area. Regarding cleaningness I will forward your opinions to our housekeeping department.

Thank you for sharing your opinions regarding your stay with us!
Best regards

Scandic Malmen is located in a bar/restaurant area in Sthlm. The location is excellent for night life and shopping (close to the city center). The room (I got) was very 1990's, old and worn and sure needed a face lift.

Stable internet connection.
Standard hotel breakfast, nothing special.
Good range of TV channels.
Possibility to work out/swim at a nearby gym which is great if you like to get active.

I am happy to hear that you had a good stay here with us.
At the moment we are giving our rooms a face lift so soon all rooms will be matching the interior in the lobby.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us!

We visited Scandic Malmen in mid December during our weekend trip to Stockholm.
There are many good things about this hotel starting from a very convenient location (old town in the walking distance, metro stop is just under the hotel), through the stylish interior design, very charming dining areas and finally a nice vibrant bar which on a contrary can be a little of a problem. On Friday and Saturday nights the bar got absolutely packed and the music was heard even on the top floor where we stayed. It didn't really bother me however if you have a problem with noises at night it can become a nuisance. The other pitfall was the size of rooms. First we were offered a room on the sixth floor which turned out to be a claustrophobic and absolutely unacceptable. After some discussion with the reception staff we were offered an upgraded room which was more adeqate to what we have been expecting.
The breakfast was ok but nothing very special. There was a problem with finding a table so many people had to eat on small tables in the lounge areas but on the other hand it was a weekend and everyone was in the chillin mood so no one really bothered.
Overall our experience was positive and I would recommend this hotel to my friends, however taking the noise into consideration.

Room Tip: choose higher floors to avoid noise coming from the bar

What you can expect of a Scandic Hotel regarding service, breakfast, cleanliness etc.
We got a "designed" room om the second floor which made the stay a bit more rememorable.

Perfect location close to shopping, restaurants and bars. Even the hotel bar is a really nice place for drinks.
