“Motel style hotel with great breakfast buffet”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Scandic Jarva Krog is conveniently situated along E18 from Stockholm to Arlanda. The hotel has a basic lobby with standard rooms. It services the purpose for staying the night and it gives value for money. An added value compare to downtown hotels is the free parking. It is only 8 km to downtown. The breakfast buffet is great with a wide selection of food and fruits. During our check-in we had some misunderstandings between us and the hotel staff about our room location. As customer care, we got a gift voucher for the restaurant/shop. I really value the response from the staff!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is facing away from the E18 Highway to avoid noice

It's great to find out that you liked our breakfast buffet filled with several ecological items and healthy selections to give you a great start of the day. Also happy to hear that our Front Office team were able to solve the situation and offered you a voucher, perfect!

Have a nice day and welcome back soon!

Good place to stay if you need just somewhere to stay on you way through Stockholm. Check in and Check out worked very well. The room was nice and the staff friendly. Enjoyed also the Sauna and the Jazczzi in the SPA, even if the Jacuzzi temperature was too low.

Had dinner at the hotel restaurant in the evening. The menu was lame, I had tortellioni which looked like something they had taken out of a Findus box and heated in the microwave. Noticed that they have changed the menu since we visitited, so maybe it is better now. Not that many selections for vegetarians.

The breakfast was very nice with a lot of fruit and organic products. It is a quite and nice atmosphere at the brakfast, even though it was a lot of people there (mainly Japanese and Finnish tourists, maybe not the loudest people).

Would like to come back again. Maybe I skip then dinner then and just get something from Statoil next to the Hotel.

Thank you for your valuable feedback after your recent stay with us.

I am delighted to read that you appreciated our breakfast buffet and area. Especially happy for your comments around the variety of fruit and organic alternatives, important values for us. Also happy that your check-in and out was pleasant.

Regarding the food in our restaurant, we are very sorry for not meeting your expectations. This is of course not good enough and we will take instant action on improving this. We will also look at the temperature of the Jacuzzi, thank you.

We hope to see you back at Järva Krog within the near future and that you will give the restaurant another chance, I'm sure we offer better and higher quality alternatives than our neighbor.

Kind regards,
Lovisa Hegborn

The hotel is not the newest but there's still nothing wrong with it. The place is clean, beds comfy. They have a good sauna and a nice bubble bath. The breakfast is very very good with fresh bread and lots of delicious fruit.

If I was here to vacation or sight see I would definitely stay closer to the city.

4 business associates and I arrived into the hotel on a Sunday afternoon, after checking in we decided to meet up and eat. The restaurant was already closed. No other restaurants were open close by and being too tired to go into town our options were limited to Cold sandwiches and beverages available in the lobby area.

The morning breakfast buffet is adequate.

The rooms are not very spacious but for a single person with little baggage it was fine.

As it is close to a major highway if you want a quiet room request one away from the highway.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused regarding the opening hours of the restaurant. Unfortunately, we have decided to keep it closed on Sunday evenings. Though, offering a good variety in our SHOP is of course a given!

I wish you warm welcome back in the future.

The hotel is okay but of 8 people ordering food, all but two had to be sent out since it was cold and poorly cooked.
When we pointed out the problem, we got new food sent out pretty fast though.
The location is'nt that good, situated alongside a big highway. Not more than 140 parking spots is a small margain.

Near to airport. Not a very great location location but good service.

Not very near to the city center so if you need to spend most of your time in the Stockholm city then taxies will cost you more.

Co-operative staff. Clean and comfortable rooms with Wi-fi access. Good breakfast options.

Recommended for business stays if you know what you are doing.

When you pay over 200 € per night, you expect some level of comfort. This hotel simply gives the value of a hotel where you expect to pay 70 € per night. Basic rooms, nothing fancy, a breakfast room that reminds me of the refectory in my high school - which if over 25 years ago, btw - hence a complete rip-off.

As other reviewers have pointed out, the location is a complete disaster, but that is something you are supposed to know : this is not the hotel you book when you want to visit Stockholm. It is not in the city center. But again, why such a high price of such a location ? A mystery to me.
