Stayed 3 nights in Scandic Hotel for business and I was pleasantly surprised. On my last day, I really didn't want to leave (the hotel or Berlin), haha. What a great place!
Room: Large, nice, clean and quiet. Smells nice, too. Very comfortable beds and the extra armchair is great for a little relax while watching TV or reading a book. If you don't want to be disturbed in the morning, don't forget to use the 'Do not disturb' card otherwise you might get awoken quite early. There is a safe and fridge in the room but no coffee or tea amenities.
Roomservice: There is no room service in the hotel but you can call the bar and they will bring you your order for 15 Euro fee, or you can call them and later just pop in to the 3rd floor and fetch it yourself. The bar closes very late and there is a balcony with chairs so you can sit there and chill. If you're hungry late at night, you can grab salad, wrap or little snack in the little shop at the reception. I had Caesar salad and turkey wrap and both were delicious.
Hotel: Spacious, professional and clean. Some of the staff were slightly ill-informed (specially in terms of city tax payments for people on business ... my colleague filled in a form at the reception and didn't have to pay the city tax, I was told that it doesn't apply to me because my room wasn't booked through the hotel so I paid it ... which was wrong because we both used the same booking system so I should have spared of paying the tax, too), Anyway, overall most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Free WiFi worked well all over the hotel and food was amazing (used the bar, restaurant, shop at the reception and also had meals at the conference area).
Gym: The hotel gym (8th floor) is great for a morning cardio or some light weight training, which is more than you can expect from the hotel (there is a water fountain, towels and bath robes available, the gym includes a couple of showers and cute little sauna). The hotel guests have also an access to the Holmes Place gym next door which is connected with Scandic by the corridor (1st floor). All you need to do is swipe your room key-card. There is a spa service available in Holmes Place but I haven't tried it so can't comment on that.
