No way to regulate/stop the air cooling system. No way to regulate room temperature. Unconfortable cold room atmosphere unless you stay in bed. No room in the lobby to meet with other people. On the other hand the breakfast is very good.

It's a nice hotel, and at a very central location. At the time- they did some construction work- and there was a lot of noise. They are probably done with that now. The food and the service was great - so it's probably a nice and central place to stay

A fresh hotel, but does not deliver above average. Got a room in the bottom floor, somehow behind the bar (!) Same night the bar was booked by a company to have a party... Breakfast was good in variety, but like often Scandic works more with quantity than quality.

Stayed here in Januar 2017 for a business trip and liked it a lot. Very friendly staff, small but nice rooms, good location and a stunning breakfast buffet. All of this at a rate that was well below other options (converting to Euro, we were below 150 Euro, whereas the Radisson Blue is above 200). All in all, no reason...

The best breakfast at the hotel we've ever had, lots of choice and great sized modern rooms. We have no complaints. Very friendly staff too. Great location and near some really nice restaurants we wouldn't have thought of going o otherwise such as dognville burger.
