“A good hotel, though in a less central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

LOCATION
About 2 km from the city centre in a pretty dull industrial area. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel, from where you can go to the city centre.

ROOM
Large room, with one bedroom part and one sitting area including armchair as well as chair+desk. Clean. Comfortable bed. Clean, fresh bathroom.

NOISE LEVEL
No problem with noise from the rather lively street nearby.

SERVICE
Friendly, helpful staff.

BREAKFAST
Rich buffet including warm dishes, such as bacon & eggs. Pretty busy when we were there but still possible to find a table. The staff refilled the buffet continuously and there was no lack of anything.

RESTAURANT
We didn’t try the restaurant.

OTHER THINGS
Wi-Fi in the room at no extra charge. Additionally, computers with internet in the lobby and even a possibility to print documents for free.

SUMMARY
A good hotel, especially if you don’t bother about its less central location.

Stayed in the hotel for 5 nights on a business trip in mid January 2014, the hotel is very pleasant albeit a bit old. It is not very luxurious or fancy but is nonetheless extremely comfortable. The hotel staff are very helpful with things like directions in Lund, helping us with Taxis, etc. The first floor room was a kind of suite with a living/working area and a bed room with two beds. So, it was a very spacious room (the bathroom had a shower area and a bathtub and was very spacious too).
Restaurant is a bit of a let down, for a vegetarian, there was just one dish and not very good at that. The restaurant staff were not very helpful, when I mentioned that I am a vegetarian, they pointed me to the only dish and took the menu back! And the restaurant was closed on sunday, after a long flight to reach Lund, the last thing I wanted was to venture out in the cold.
Location is not good, its about 3km or so from downtown. It is a pleasant walk to go to the city center, so I did not mind it.

Pros: Comfortable, spacious room
Cons: Location, restaurant not good

You will know from my past reviews that I visit this hotel to stay near family. First of all - thank you, Scandic - the tatty carpet has at last disappeared from the reception area, which is a vast indoor courtyard, with a glass roof. It has so improved the look of the place. Stayed in a family room - the more updated ones, so very happy. Safes do not accommodate laptops. elevators on the "quiet" side of the hotel normally run 6am to 10pm, but were running 24 hours, due to problems with other elevators. Took advantage of free bike hire, as before - Lund is a very bike friendly town - not so for cars. the number 5 bus also runs from outside this hotel, so leave your car parked at the Star if you want to visit Lund. Breakfast was the usual fare - fine for me, I haven't eaten any other meal at this hotel, so can't comment. Pool was unheated, which, as others have said, is too cool for little children (and some adults, too!). Gym is fine. All in all - I was mainly happy with my visit this time. (And staff are always p0olite and helpful - goes without saying).

The hotel is located in the outskirts of Lund. The rooms are big but mine was in rather bad condition. I had a bedroom with two beds and a separate living area with a desk, a little table and a sofa bed. There was no refrigerator in the room. The bathroom was big with a separate shower and bath tub.The restaurant is big. The breakfast was OK but nothing extra at all.

Rooms are clean but a little worn. No minibar in the rooms, no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms, no toilet paper in the bathroom. Pool too cold for small children. On the plus side, the breakfast is excellent.

Scandic have reliable functional hotels, usually reasonably priced. This hotel is in the outskirts of Lund, convenient by car, 15-20 minutes by bus from the centre of town. Most guests seem to be workmen, sales and service reps and tourists by the busload.

Nothing to complain about, everything just works. Good, but not exceptional service. Good breakfast spread. Clean room. OK dining. Amazed that kitchen and serving staff can cope with enormous swings in number of guests.

We stayed 4 persons (parents + 6yr/15yr boys) two nights as a weekend offer/break-out event, not so far from our home near Copenhagen. Scandic Lund, was like Scandic most other places: Children friendly, average quality but sufficient for a family like ours on a medium budget. We chose this hotel for the pool, which was used 2 times, but the water was too cold for us. The gym. was small, but sufficient machines in good quality/condition. The resturant was OK, but the price on the high side compared to the level of quality. However, fine solution after travel; and again, no real surprices. Lund "Downtown" a few km away required car or bikes. Hotel bikes available, but unfortunately no bikes for children. The challenge was finding a parking space in the center of Lund without being ripped off. The city-park with the observatirium was great in the nice spring weather, and has an excellent large playground. Many resturants and café possibilities. Not so much for children if you avoid fast food like pizza, like we do; but we found some OK restaurants after some searching. Note: The better Saturday evening restaurants requires booking well in advance. We walked a lot and experienced historic places like the old university, the cathedral, etc, but it was not the most interesting city for children. However, as a relaxing family weekend with a lot of walking and talking, after a stressful time, it was just fine. If just the pool had been 5C warmer, if would have been excellent...

Room Tip: Budget family room with view to a roof. But quiet, apart from neighbor rooms.
