“Ok room but shocking restaurant and wifi”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

It may have been an off night for both the restaurant staff and the wifi when I stayed but I was shocked. The hotel is old and could do with a refurbishment, reception were friendly but two major disappointments for a business traveller especially with Swedish hotel prices. Wifi reminded me of the 90s with dial up speeds making it impossible to work and then while trying to get served in the restaurant the staff were trying to under-perform the wifi by ignoring any attempt to order food or drinks.

Stayed March 2013, traveled on business

Scandinavian comfort, not very big but comfortable room. Excellent breakfest. The also have quite nice gym, sauna and pool for guests for free. Very nice and smiling personel. There are also some smoking rooms in last floor. Very close to McDonald and Willys supermarket, just 20 minutes of nice walk from city center and castle. Just great hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are great, some may be a little noisy due to close highway. With room like x20 and more Yo...

This is one of the old not-so-charming Scandic Hotels. Positive things: Close to the nearby E18/E20 and free parking. Not so positive: Took very long to check in. I cannot see why this should be a problem.

Bar personell are old-timers that remebered me after several years not staying here. Wonder why? ;)

There has been a little positive change in the otherwise stereotype menu; the regional cuisine. In Örebro, this fall it is dear with juniper sauce and chantarelles. A perfect composition with generous slices of very tender dear meet. Liked it a lot, but couldn't eat it all.

As always with Scandic - on the expensive side and not always living up to expectations. But fully satisfied this time.

A decent hotel that is ideal if you’re travelling by car and is just passing through the town.

The hotel feels quite dated and not up to the standard that most Scandic hotels got. The corridor I was staying in even smelt a bit musty, but the room was ok, clean, and very large. But they should consider renovating the rooms because everything feels a bit old…

The one thing that was really impressive was the breakfast, as always in Scandic hotels it had everything I wanted and a lot more than that.

I’ve stayed in 5 hotels in Scandinavia in the last month this one was by far the worst.
Only one of the five (Hilton Slussen) was worth the price.
Again another old musty Motel that wants to charge top Dollar city prices. How Hotels get away with it is nonsense.
There was no laundry bag or list in the room , asked Reception. They didn’t have one or have any answer .
This is a first in 23years Business travel, they actually wanted me to bring my dirty clothes to reception and sort it out there , I didn’t dare ask what was meant but it sounded like tip it all on the counter and we’ll go thru it and make a list .
Unbelievable .

Room very musty , and light above bed didn’t annoyingly work bah!
Internet is free but drops out every Goddam minute drove me nuts!
Overall I’m so so glad to see the back of this place , and I thought the Scandic Grand in town was overpriced rubbish but this was worse.

Room Tip: go somewheres else

Stayed in this hotel for five nights during July/August. There a some positive things to say about this hotel. I stayed for a discounted prize of less that $100 (650 SEK to be precise). This made this hotel price worthy. The breakfast is really great and included in the price. On the other hand, there are some major drawbacks as well: no air conditioning in the room, some rooms are very noisy, either because the freeway that runs just outside or the McDonalds drive-through, also just outside (on the South side, open and noisy until 1 am).

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the west (= main entrance) side of the building.
