Scandic Hotel Star Lund
Ranked #7 of 17 Hotels in Lund
Reviewed 24 August 2012

I stay at this hotel when I go to visit family. So far my overall experience has been good - I won't bother to repeat my other reviews.

This time I joined the Scandic frequent Guest scheme, so you can tell that I am fairly satisfied with the hotel. Booked early for an August stay and at the usual rate. Was surprised to be shown to a small single room for my 4 night stay - no wardrobe, one drawer, small, rather shabby shower. Had a word with hotel re drawer space and was given a "double" room instead. Much nicer - slightly different from the family rooms I have had before, but still with separate "lounge" with desk, table, armchairs and bedroom with 2 single beds. Bathroom had both shower and bath.

I had asked for a room away from the lifts and was given one at the front of the hotel, this time. Temperatures were in the 30's, so I used the open-able windows, but was then woken by the traffic noise in the mornings. Very light curtains also let the light through much earlier than the UK, so that made me wake up, too.

After former problems, I took my own hair dryer, so did not check if the one provided had the same early cut-out as the other rooms I have used.

No probs with cleanliness - I think we have already established that room decor is old-style Swedish.

Used pool every day - lovely and cool in those temperatures. Used Sauna, but didn't use gym this time, but it's fine. I did use the free bike service that the hotel extends. The first day all the bikes were booked out, so I got down earlier the next day. You need to be aware that Swedish bikes do not always have the same braking system - the one I rode braked when you back-pedalled and it took a bit of getting used to. Only one gear, which was a strain, as my relatives live on the only hill in Lund - good coming back though. Dynamo/lights didn't work on the one that I borrowed, however - a good scheme and I will use it again.

Breakfast was fine, as always - again, seems to be standard Swedish fare, but lots of choice and dining room was often full. I have not stayed for dinner, but did look at menu - Main courses about 160SEK, as i recall it was 2 courses for 230??SEK and 3 courses for 290SEK. there was a special 3 course menu for 295 SEK. not a lot of choice there.

Didn't get my "complimentary" newspaper delivered (Scandic frequent guest scheme), but just picked up a copy of the FT in the lobby, when I wanted it.

Courtyard lobby is definitely looking the worse for wear - how much does it cost to clean the big stains off the carpet?

Conclusion - if you stayed in a single room, I feel you would be disappointed. Family and double rooms are fine - free wi-fi, good breakfast, nice pool, gym, sauna. Staff are helpful and stay calm under pressure (could be more staff on the desk sometimes). For the price, it is good and I would have marked it up, except for the horrid single room).

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front of the hotel and away from the elevators are quietest. Single rooms are v...

Location close to highway to Malmö, easy access, free parking outside, free wi-fi. Room was big but the hotel requires renovation, like Scandic hotels in general. I stayed one night and for that purpose it was ok. Nothing special in this place. Breakfast was good like usually at Scandic hotels. I didn´t have opportunity to visit Lund center so I can not comment about the distance to there. Staff at the reception was helpful.

Very disappointing experience. Very small room, outdated and not very clean. Too far away from the city centre located close to an industrial zone. Urgently needs a renovation!

Who says Scandinavia is so expensive? 3 nights in a double room with free uprade to 'queen' ,plus the most extensive, delicious breakfast ,cost less than the average Travelodge in the UK. The location is very convenient for the motorway, no driving around searching the backstreets late at night. The friendly staff all spoke excellent English, in contrast to the UK where English staff are becoming a rarity.
The room was slightly small, though it had duel aspect windows, which actually opened, and the room was quiet, bright, fresh and clean..
Breakfast was scrumptuous, -far too much to mention- squeeze your own orange juice, hot choices, loads of meats, cheeses, fruit, cereals, breads, - 4 huge tables...
Plus free parking, free wi-fi, free use of gym, pool and fitness centre...
The only downside was the dinner menu, which was rather limited. For guests staying for long periods, it could become repetitive.
Overall, a very enjoyable reprieve from the snow blizzards outside.

A classic business hotel located too far from everything.
Could be good if you are by car, is a no-choice if you arrive by taxi as you will need a taxi for everything unless you want to be stuck in the hotel.
On the positive side, there are a lot of facilities like free wi-fi, gym, good restaurant, but still I advice to choose an hotel in Lund center, at least you will be able to have a walk in the town.

This hotel is a conference center and we were there for business and some vacation. Unfortunately it was about 2 miles from the town center and not easy to get to by foot. The hotel bikes were not available. The rooms were a bit dated and not super clean. Breakfast and restraunt were great. Staff was nice. not a bad experience overall.

The breakfast is very good, I can confirm. Its a large buffet in the long dining area, and there is a dedicated children's buffet and room. There is also a playroom with curtains, which was adequate but could have done with some love and attention as it has obviously been well used!

Stayed in the family room, one with a slanted roof. Not much wardrobe space, and beds comfortable enough.

There is a small pool which is a little chilly but clean and great if you have children.
