This hotel is situated at the outskirt of Lund, perfect for travelers with a car. Are you coming by train to Lund, it’s easiest to go by taxi. But when you take a taxi in Lund as well as in other places in Sweden, you have to take a car belonging to a well-established, serious taxi company if you don’t like to be fooled. If you don’t know which company you should choose, ask some person at the railway station. They know! And please, don't forget to ask for the price BEFORE you enter the car. If the driver says that he (she) use a taximeter, don't believe in him (her) but ask someone else! All taxidrivers knows the price for the ride to the hotel from Lund station.
The hotel is nice and big and has on own parking lot outside which is free of charge. The Internet is wireless and also free of charge as in all Scandic Hotels. Surprisingly in this hotel it was extremely fast: 18 Mbit/sec!
I had a superior room. Very nice indeed but the bedsheet was not big enough to cover the mattress! I have never seen this before at any other hotel in my life! So when I had slept, I found out in the morning that I had one hand on the mattress! Not so nice feeling in the morning. The venetian window shades were very old fashioned and have to be changed as I had some problem with them.
At the restaurant they had a summer menu. A three courses dinner for less than 300 SEK. I ordered it, but regrettably my impression was that some of the salads and sauces were bought at some grocery. The dinner was absolutely not worth the price due to the low quality and without any feeling of cooking happiness. However, the breakfast in the following morning was very varied and in a high class.
To sum up: The hotel itself is worth a "four star" but due to the small bedsheet and the poor dinner, my opinion is that it's a "four minus minus" (4- -) hotel.
