I stayed in Scandic Alvik for 2 weeks, since I had my office in Gustavslundsvagen, Alvik. The hotel staffs are very courteous to attend to your needs and also they had a great breakfast. The station is just 100 meters from the hotel and we have shops like ICA and McDonalds near by. They have a gym as well, but it's very basic.

Overall, a nice place to stay for business trips.

After various disappointing experiences with hotels in downtown Stockholm I chose the Scandic Alvik because of its good connection both to the city (less than 15 minutes subway) and to Stockholms-Mässan in Älvsjö (less than 20 minutes with the tram). Compared to the city hotels I experienced, the room had much more space and a true bathroom, not only a one square meter cell. And the breakfast was quite opulent, though somewhat boring. A perfect stay for two or three nights over the weekend.
However, after a one weeks stay I am somewhat doubtful whether I should rate with three or four dots. Because certain aspects became rather disturbing the longer the stay was:
- no closet so that I had to keep most clothes in my suitcase;
- no window that can be opened in the room. The a/c-system is excellent, but I slept very bad without fresh air (I asked at the reception whether there was an option for a room with a true window but that seems only to be the case with the suites);
- Full range of breakfast available only on Saturday and Sunday. On weekdays breakfast offer was limited and tasted boring. In addition, the dining room was very full and noisy at least between 7 and at 8 am which led to queues.
- And, finally, everything is neat and modern, but completely lacks atmosphere.

This isn't luxury but a good clean basic hotel. Don't look for little bottles of hand cream & shampoo...they're not there. It has a small refrigerator. There was no water pot for coffee or tea, but I called housekeeping and asked if they could provide them, and they did. There was no additional charge at check out for this. There are ice machines on every other floor, but they were turned off because there was a large number of young people staying at the hotel who were participating in a sporting event...these young people were ruining the machines according to the hotel personnel, so they were turned off. Ice was available at reception. The reception people were always charming and helpful.
If you are taking the subway and walking to the hotel, the going is a little tough due to construction. There is not much around this hotel..an ICA grocery store is close. Mc Donalds is there too.
Breakfast is good---the usual scrambled eggs, tomatoes, beans & under-cooked bacon. The bread is high quality, they have fruit smoothies that are a bonus. Coffee is very good. Kudos to the young black guy with dreadlocks who clears tables faster than any other three people...and does it with a smile. Hope he is appreciated at this restaurant.

Enjoyed this hotel. It's a bit out of town, but within 10 minutes by train, the station is a block away. Really good value for Stockholm. I enjoyed the breakfasts here. I had a room with a single (twin) bed, so the room was very small, but fine for me as a solo traveler. The room was quiet and I slept well. No issues with the wi-fi connection. Staff was friendly, although unable to credit me with SAS points instead of Scandic points at check-out, they said it needed to be done at check-in. Strange. Otherwise, no complaints and i would definitely return to this hotel if I'm ever back in Stockholm.

Stayed 4 nights in July, had a family suite with a super view. Close to subway, quite, great breakfast, stayed a extra night because it was so nice. Had a great time and made our trip to Stockholm pleasant. ICA and McDonalds just across the street next to subway and bus terminal. Extensive breakfast selection and lots to choose from even though it was busy, staff was friendly, fast and courteous. Absolutely would stay here again.

We had stayed in this hotel three times during the last years. Why? Because it is close to my family in Stockholm, and we got a good deal.

Pros:
1. Great breakfast
2. Quiet
3. Average good scandinavian standard
4. Close to public transport

Cons:
1. Overcrowded and noisy during breakfast
2. AC that do not want to obey us
3. You need to have a rather long walk to get to inner city

I can recommend this hotel for those that get a good deal and have a good reason to stay in this area. If you are a tourist visiting Stockholm; Chose another location.
