Scandic CH
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Gavle
Reviewed 12 July 2013

In the middle of Gavle and within walking distance to several restaurants, this hotel is alright to stay at. Friendly staff, good breakfast and value for money. Rooms are okey, even if the bathroom is a bit on the small side.

Keep out of Scandic Hotel, Gävle Sweden. A Stalin type hotel. No minibar, no roomservice and not allowed to bring a bottle from the bar to the room. Not in 70+ countries and 30 years I have experienced anything like this. Me no gusta... :-(

It is the second Scandic hotel in two days. Yesterday I was at the Sergel Plaza in Stockholm and the price was of about 150 Euro per 1 night invluding breakfast and internet. Tonight in Gavle, same sales conditions but even more expensive, around 170,00 Euro.
I can see that everywhere the standard is similar to Ibis, but at double price. Probably this is the price level in Sweden. It is matter of fact that this hotel is not worth the money you pay for!

Stayed here for a few nights. A very nice hotel indeed. Very friendly personnel, as they were smiling everytime I saw them. Peacefull rooms. Although they were not very big, they were just fine for a short stay. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast included was offering a very large selection. Dinner was confusing as I got only a very limited menu. Not many choices, so I was "forced" to order something what was closest to my interest. The food was good though.
The garage was nice for the car, but still quite expensive for hotel guests. There are limited parking places around the hotel, but then again I was kind of "forced" to take a garage place as I was not aware were to park elsewere. Lobby is nice, well decorated. Distance to the city center is only a few minutes walk.
I hope they will invest next time in the bathrooms as they are kind of old fashioned. Also the television set could be bigger. It was hard to watch football from a miniscreen.

Hotel located 3 min from central station in Gävle and some 5 min to city center. Traditional business hotel but with a touch of commonplace. The room I got had a dull enterior, irritating nioce from the a/c and a terrible smell of mold from the bathroom. Breakfast was OK.

Nice hotel, in the center of Gavle, near the station.
Not large but clean room, kind receptionist, medium breakfast.
No frigobar present but there is a small shop at reception where you can buy what you need.
Restaurants near the hotel.
Good for business stay but also good for holiday.
Hairdresser present and all necessary to iron

i agree with the review “Average, but good hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2011. Well said.

We stayed for 2 nights the previous weekend.
The power went out in our room, We booked a superior room, that wasn't what i expected compared to my other Scandic superior room experiences. No bath, small room that should be a standard room. We changed rooms because of the power to a much larger room with a bath and coffee machine, a nice touch. Being a city there is noise from cars, music, etc if the window is open. The hotel is made up of an older section and a newer section. No pool, but a huge gym and sauna if your that way inclined. Breakfast was Scandic full buffet, which is always great. Dinner in the hotel restaurant, was really good, (150sek) but options were limited due to the summer menu. parking was about 150sek which is expensive but better than paying the meter on the street.

Room Tip: A Superior suite with a bath, facing the front of the building and select close to lift.
