“Functional hotel for a business traveller”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

The reception at the Scandic Billingen was very welcoming and the service overall. The hotel facade gives perhaps impression of another class yet the hotel itself is very standard but functional. The establishment is located in the immediate centre of Skövde within a walking distance from restaurants, shopping etc. A very pleasant experience which I could consider for my next visit to Skövde.

This is a standard, safe choice hotel for families and business travellers alike.
First impressions are good and the staff are friendly. The restaurant and lounge are attractive, although it takes only a few steps to return to 'generic hotel' with its monotonous corridors and dull decor.
The room was clean and spacious, for a single and the beds are always comfortable.
Maintenance was good, as was housekeeping.
There's a cool little hideyhole kids room complete with toys and games just off the dining area.
When I'm back in town, I won't think twice about booking here again.
See you soon

Checked in to this hotel and was told that I had to through the restaurant to get to my room. When I came in I saw that my room was very small and the bathroom was even smaller. I even had to put my toiletry bag on the floor.

During the night I was wondering who the heck it was that was drilling in the middle of the night, but I soon realised that it was my room neighbour that where snoring. It felt that he was sleeping next to me. During the morning I could even hear his conversation (word for word) when he spoked in his phone. Talked to my collages in the morning but they stayed in a different side of the hotel and they didn't have any complaints.

The good side was that my room was recently refurbished.

The staff at the reception was very helpful and the breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Since I got a room that was VERY small it could be a good idea to ask upon arrival or booking to get...

Nice room but not so nice to discover that there was lacking one set of towels. I also find it strange that the guests have to prepare the extra bed in the room. Especially when have being told by the reception that this of course should be taken care of.
Breakfast is excellent and the chairs are not at all too small;-)

I have been coming to the Scandic Billingen since 2007. I visit the town normally alternate weeks. I have has the opportunity to try the other main 6 hotels in the town over the years. I would really recommend the Scandic as a cut above the rest. The location is perfect for the station and walking distance to the restaurants in the town. The hotels restaurant is also very good, but it is nice to have variation!

A great location and facilities were good, although the gym & spa were being refurbished during our stay. We were there for 3 weeks and the main criticism was that the single rooms were a little small and had no storage space for clothes apart from a tiny wardrobe. We lived out of the suitcase for the whole period.
Apart from that everything was fine, the food was very good, breakfast certainly set you up for the day.
