Friendly staff in the reception upon arrival. She noticed my reservation specified a quiet room, far away from the elevator, high level (reduces noise from street/railway outside). She said all of this was accommodated and gave me my key. But the room was sub standard! Room with two beds left no additional floor space. The beds consumed it all. The... More

Quick overnight stay, close to railway station but a very comfortable well insulated room, staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast was very good and a good selection. On the morning of departure the hotel let us stay in the dining are until lunchtime to finish off our prep for our afternoon meeting. Typical Swedish hospitality, recommended.

I visited with my husband & parents. The family room was quite large & nicely done up. The lobby is really nice to lounge around. There is fika (tea, coffee, cakes & biscuits) all day! The breakfast was included in the room rate & the spread was impressive. Although they couldn't be flexible with the checkin & checkout times, they... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in what I think was a standard/budget room together with my boyfriend.

Finding this hotel is a little tricky, but worth the effort. There are 3 Scandic hotels near the train station. No. 25 is located on a quiet street away from the central station's busy intersections.

Nice room with a good joint-room solution for kids. Modern bathroom (nothing common in this area :-)) and tasteful lobby/restaurant area. Parking is cumbersome and relatively pricy. As usual. Breakfast was good but I don't like when they start taking away the breakfast items 15 min before the official end... plus staff was relatively unfriendly - maybe they were worn... More

Usually when going on city breaks what can let things down is a noisy hotel. This hotel is very quiet and the hotel rooms and bathrooms are large.

This hotel is quite centrally located, but that is also one of it's problems. The surroundings are not the best, and the "clients" hanging around the hotel is not the ones I would trust the most.
