“Basic Scandic Hotel but OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

I stayed for one night. The rooms are basic but clean. Free wifi works well. The restaurant had a very limited menu on offer. There are also snacks and sandwiches for purchase in the reception area. There is a small gym and sauna on the ground floor which is OK. There is not much in the local area but if you go left out of the hotel you will soon reach a small supermaket and a row of shops. One of these a pub/restaurant does decent takeaway pizza at cheap prices especially compared to the hotel.

I had a good nights sleep and the breakfast was a decent hot and cold buffet. Overall no complaints but definitely nothing fancy. Would have given four stars other than the price paid which was too much for a hotel which is effectively on the side of the motorway well outside Stockholm.

Stayed October 2011, traveled on business

Not a lot to say - badly located (highways, noise, ...) - 20minutes from city center by taxi - Very expensive (because of a congress I think) -- very poor service at the front desk --... for sure I won't go there again...

Scandic hotel Taby is an OK hotel with nice breakfast.
Don't expect any views as this hotel is just next to the highway.
As it's only 18km from the centre of Stockholm, are you looking for more than just a night's sleep, I'd stay somewhere else.

Free parking, and location makes it a good place to stay, should you arrive late at night and not expecting any sightseeing.

Although in the summer - there are some nice places to go swimming only 5 min drive away. And for shopping, the large mall/shopping centre of Taby is a 10 min walk away.

Hotel gives a dingy impression ... standard rooms extremely cramped with tiny creaky beds and almost no floor space. Rooms feel stuffy and stagnent with no airconditioning. No closet space, disgusting bathrooms that smell of mold and mildew. The soap and shampoo bottles are fixed to the wall and smell like they've been equipped with a paint thinner additive. Breakfast was a dissappointment overall with slimy bacon and fake scrambled eggs (powdered or something, but definitely have never seen a chicken).
I was ready to check out and find something else when I was told there were king sized beds. The king room was much better, but in reality a queen bed. Bathroom was still same musty smelling type.
All in all, I'd never stay there again - the only plus was that it was close to the motorway.
My overall rating is gross and substandard.

Stayed here two separate nights. each for around 700 Kr. First night we had a room facing the motorway - as it was very hot we had the window open (no a/c) and it was noisy. Shouldn't be a problem outside the summer though. Second stay we were at the back of the building, overlooking woods - much quieter. Overall, nothing special but all the qualities of a basic Scandic, in a very convenient location near to the motorway. Wifi free but intermittent. However, one nice touch is a computer and printer in the lounge.
