Scandic Linkoping City
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Linkoping
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This was my second time to the Scandic city and I have enjoyed both visits. The hotel is a comfortable 10 minute walk from the Linkoping train station in good weather. The staff were always exceptionally friendly during my interactions.
I was in room 612 and it is spacious with a a balcony and a great view of the sunrise. The free wifi was a welcome added extra.
The TV channel selection is poor for English speaking channels.
I don't like not having a minibar in the room and whilst the downstairs mini bar was good value, the selection was poor.
Breakfast is good if you like European breakfast. The bacon, eggs and sausages are forgettable.

I stayed one night on a business trip in room 105. This is an accessible room with a shower chair and emergency buttons here and there. To me it was a bit weird that they didn't ask if getting an accessible room was OK with me - I would have preferred a normal one.

The design of the hotel and the rooms is stylish and modern. I believe the property is less than 10 years old. The location 5 minutes' walk from the train station is very convenient, and the airport is only 2 kilometers away. I really liked the breakfast, too.

When I pay USD 220 per night, there are some things I would not expect. One is a tiny CRT TV with a remote missing the battery cover. Another is that there's only one small and one large towel on the rack. A third is that there was only one pillow in the bed, and definitely no pillow menu. No tea kettle, and an inconveniently placed ironing board. The list goes on.

Clearly the Scandic Linkoping City is doing good business. The fact that they can charge what they do indicates to me there is limited competition in Linköping and that you probably won't find anything better. On this basis, I would recommend the hotel - just manage your expectations in terms of amenities and be ready to pay out the nose.

Room Tip: If you don't need an accessible room, you may need to ask for a normal one.

I have stayed here several times and I am NEVER disappointed with the service,
hospitality or the food.
Rooms are all very fresh and well equipped.
Parking is easy and the river and beach are just outside.
Staying here is joyful.

Stayed for a couple of nights on business - very nice hotel. Close to airport and short walk to town centre. Rooms are very comfortable, clean with plenty of light. Wifi is free and worked fine for me all over the hotel. Service is excellent - very helpful and friendly. Will use again when I visit the area.

Room Tip: Face the river for best view

We stayed here for two nights on our journey from Stockholm down to the south of Sweden.
The hotel is just 5 minutes by walk away from the city centre and is placed directly on a small beach at the Kinda Kanal.
The rooms are spacious and well equiped. You can use WiFi, the sauna and the gym for free. On the corridors you have the possibility to get crushed ice and ice cubes. Very nice during the summer! All rooms are air condtioned with a automatic system. You just have to choose the temperature, the rest will be done automatically.
The breakfast was very good. A big range of local and continental food, teas and coffee. Try the "Blåbärsoppa" (soemthing like a blueberry smoothie).
The stuff were very friendly. We talked Swedish with them and they spoke clearly enough that we could understand them, even we are non-native speakers. Not that normal in Swedish hotels.

Would come again!

The rooms are fresh and modern(the shower was too small) and the breakfast was decent. You can walk to central bus and train station as well as central parts of the city, so great location. There was free WiFi like other Scandic hotels.

The only problem was rather arrogant reception staff. It seemed that they have too many customers or they are too proud to care about the way they talk or threat the guests. The hotel is quite large and there were many conferences and meetings taking place in this hotel during the only day that I stayed there.

Nice location. Modern hotel but boring. Strict and clean rooms. Average breakfast. Perfect for businesspeople. It has a small beach(!) next to it. That was fun and special:-)
