We chose this hotel because it was close to the ferry terminal. Last-minute price was 795kr (~80e). Hotel is on the top of hill with beautiful view . To get there you have to drive to the end of metro line, then take charming old local train and walk up the hill. Or to take bus or taxi. Anyway, it takes some effort to reach this hotel from centrum. Also there is nothing special in the neighborhood, but it is nice area to take long walk.

Room was big and stylish with very comfortable bed. Simply great!! We left the hotel before breakfast time, but we got some snacks and coffee from the bar >> positive suprise.

If you accept not central location, this is a good choice!

A very clean, modern hotel in the municipality of Lindingö. The hotel is excellent value compared with the higher-priced, more centrally located hotels in Stockholm city itself. To get into the city, you have to walk 5 minutes to a bus stop, take a 2 minute bus trip over the Lidingöbron (Lindingö bridge) to Ropsten metro station, and then it is an easy 10-15 minute journey on the red 13 line. You can also walk to Ropsten over the old foot bridge in about 25-30 minutes.

The rooms are very clean and modern. The beds are amongst the comfiest we have ever slept in, especially for a hotel. The bathroom in our room was also very clean, with a powerful shower (always welcome). There is free WIFI internet in the rooms.

Our interaction with staff was limited to check-in, check-out and asking for advice on how to get to the metro station, but we found them to be very helpful and friendly (as are most Swedes in general, actually).

There is a free breakfast buffet, which offers a generous sweep of different foods, from hot stuff like scrambled eggs, bacon, smoked sausages, baked beans to colder bites like fruit, breads, cereals and porridge. The food is very good given that it is mass-produced and presumably sits out on the side for no small amount of time.

A couple of minor points - instead of a double bed we had two singles pushed together. This didn't bother us too much though as we don't tend to sleep wrapped up together! The other downside was that there is no room service. According to Scandic, they have listened to customer feedback, and their customers don't want room service. Instead, they offer a 24-hour shop in the lobby selling sandwiches and other light snacks. When we arrived from the airport at 11pm, we really wanted something hot and substantial, so it was disappointing to learn that our only choice was a pre-packaged sandwich.

I don't want to end the review on a downer, so I'll sum-up: this hotel is clean, modern, in a great location (providing you are physically able enough to walk to the bus and/or metro station) and great value. The free breakfast buffet is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. If we come back to Stockholm (and I think we will), we will almost certainly stay here again.

In a city where average hotel room rates are comparatively higher than other European cities but comparable to other Scandinavian cities, this hotel offers some respite. The location may be away from the city centre and perched on a hill but the water views and tranquil idlyic setting are worth it. The city is a few train stops away but the fast subway connections make it easy. Eventhough you need to change to an old train to cross the bridge, the little blue carriages are so cute you feel like you are on a ride in Disneyland! However, there is a 10 min uphill trek to the hotel from the quaint train stop, which will be no fun for those with heavy luggage.

We had a great time at the Foresta - the counter staff were amazingly friendly, cheerful and helpful (maybe we got them at the right time with the midsummer festivities in the air?), the food we had was superb - we had steaks at the grill restauarant that were delicious and worth the hefty price tag and the inclusive breakfast was nice and sumptuous and the rooms although not posh were modern and welcoming. There are nice touches like the free bikes which you can take to the supermarket down the road. We left with very fond memories.

Spent two nights at the Foresta for a friends Christening (thanks octopus for nearly b*ggering up our booking!) but the staff were so friendly and welcoming, they could see that we HAD booked and had reservations etc, just that it wasn't conformed with them!

They checked us in, and sent up complimentary drinks and a plate of meats. Great room (in the land of Ikea... say no more!) with a fantastic view over the river... some rooms might look onto the oil refinery but ours was great). Very clean and well maintained by room service. Our little one was well catered for with his cot etc. Mini bar great, especially when you stock it up with cokld drinks from the local supermarket (we were being cheapskates for the weekend, plus baby milk etc). Two singles pushed together, but you actually get a better nights sleep!

Food in the hotel was excellent and fresh, service was brill. The only drawback is that its quite far from the main islands, so you have to walk down the road for a bus, THEN get a tube train, and if you don't know where to buy tickets (like us) its blinking confussing.

I was constantly ill during the trip, but still managed to enjoy myself out there. Swedish people are lurvly!

In summary, enjoyed the stay but could have been slighty closer to the action, but a good qaulity hotel which is quiet and off the track. Staff excellent.

A beautiful hotel set ontop of a hill with commanding views over the outskirts of Stockholm. From our room all you could see was forest and water, and you would not know that you were less than fifteen minutes from the heart of the city.
The room (No 525) was a beauty with lovely Nordic design, with wooden floorboards, plenty of space and mod cons. Bathroom was pokie but was fully stocked with plenty of amenities.
Hotel staff were extremely helpful and flexible. With the warm weather they were able to provide a fan (alas no air con), early check in was no problem and they even happily arranged an early breakfast on the morning we departed.
The hotel is located on one of Stockholm's many islands but is only a short trip by light rail and subway to the city centre. Because of its idyllic location it was an extremely peaceful setting. The only caution is the walk from the station to the hotel is a little challenging with luggage. Its a bit steep.
Overall highly recommended.
