The four-star rating for this hotel on here is just wrong. This is the very definition of a two-star hotel.
If you're staying at the Scandic Star, you're almost certainly attending a conference. Now I should say the meeting facilities were quite good. However, you're here to read reviews of the other aspects of the hotel, and there's not much good to report there.
They do have free bicycles for guests to use, and we were able to do that once on the trip. The Skåne region of Sweden is about as bike-friendly as it gets, with bike paths and lanes all over the place, so I definitely recommend getting a bike, especially if you plan on making the trek into the city centre.
Because this hotel is pretty far outside of the city centre, with nothing really going on around. It's basically a bunch of car dealerships and some industrial stuff around there. You can catch a bus into the city centre, but the bike paths are so easily, I'd definitely recommend that. It's about a 10-minute bike ride as opposed to a 30-minute walk.
Now the rooms... Ours was tiny and the bathroom felt like something out of the late 70s or early 80s. The bed was decently comfortable, but there was no air conditioning and it was hot when we were there. The windows opened, but not nearly enough to cool the room down. We spent the first night sweating while trying to get sleep.
And to make matters worse, the WiFi was having all sorts of problems -- possibly bandwidth related, as the hotel was at capacity due to the conference.
In summary, if you're visiting Lund, stay in the city centre. If you're attending a conference at the Scandic Star, stay at the First Hotel Planetstaden. It's just up the road --easily walkable -- and you get much, much more for your money.
