“A chic business hotel for a very short stay, but overrated”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The imposing tower is their biggest USP and a good business hotel for a very short stay.
I found it hard to spend 10 days there, with very small rooms. Lacking any natural ventilation, storage space and cramped bathrooms.

Yes ocourse the views are marvellous, with a great lighting all round as we have glass walls around. Great play of light during sunrise and sunset.

Room Tip: Top floors for the view.

This hotel is brilliant if you are travelling in business to Kista. The hotel is in the heart of the area, and I'd say most companies are in 5/10 minute walking distance. Mine certainly was.
The proximity to the Galleria shopping mall is also useful for any essential items you may have forgotten to bring.
The rooms are clean, bright and well maintained. Another post mentions small beds and sheets. I'm 6'6" and have to say I didn't have an issue with this.
The restaurant was good, with a good selection of beers/wines, however the food selection was not so great. If you're staying for several days you will definitely find it limiting.
The breakfast was a good selection of hot and cold food.

Overall, the hotel was suited very well to a business trip, and I'd definitely use it again for any short stopovers.

Stayed in the Victoria tower for 4 nights. Nice hotel and good service. Rooms are clean and comfortable, if a little 'IKEA'. No bath and rooms are quite small but that's fine for a business trip. Buffet breakfast was a little basic but included in the room rate. Lots of big companies based nearby so convenient for business. Plenty of options for lunch locally but rather quiet in the evening (really just the galleria).

It is easy to find the imposing tower that dominates the landscape in Helenelund. The rooms are rather less imposing. They are small, no bathtub, no coffee/tea, no hair conditioner, only 4 coat hangers; sadly, the soap/shampoo containers have been replaced by reservoirs built into the wall. For me, the greatest con were the comforters, which were much too warm but could not be replaced with sheets/blankets; I tried to lower the room temp but could only go down to 18 deg C.

On the pro side, while the rooms are minimalist, what is there however is well-designed and functional. WiFi is fast. Breakfast is good. Staff is helpful. Lifts are fast. The view from the restaurant on the 34th floor is spectacular. It only takes ~15 min to reach downtown Stockholm by train.

The Scandic Hotels concept basically means offering a hostel experience for a 4 star price. Avoid if possible.

This hotel looks flashy from far away on the outside, but feels incredibly cheap inside, even though it is not. Even the entrance is oddly designed and not very welcoming. Simple materials and big, cold rooms. Large bathrooms with incredibly stupid design; using the shower will result in the whole bathroom floor being flooded. This needs to be fixed asap.

Very simple rooftop bar on the 34th floor that feels cheap. Nice view, but partly obstructed by the design of the building.

Uninterested staff and bland food. And don't expect any service.

Don't stay in this hotel unless you are doing business in the Kista area. There is nothing around, except for office buildings. The district itself is not particularly good either, and it can be dangerous. The 2013 Stockholm riots took place not to far from the hotel.

Ending on a positive note, however, this hotel does have potential as the building itself is quite spectacular. The problem is really the hotel operator, Scandic. Other chains could do so much more with it, if only the ambition was there.

Room Tip: Aim towards the higher floors if this hotel if you want anything positive out of this hotel.

this stylish, modern, very scandinavian, no frills hotel is the best choice if you happen to be on business in Kista. Comfortable rooms full of light, nice bathroom amenities, excellent breakfast. very clean. friendly service, although it took quite a while to check in and out. If you need to get to the centre of Stockholm, take a train from a nearby metro/train station, as the taxi ride might be ridiculously expensive.
