The Scandic Portalen is a very nice basic hotel that ticks a few boxes to make it that little bit more enjoyable.
The rooms are basic but well kept, the beds are comfy but make use of the extra pillow. It's my 5th stay here and the staff have always been willing to go that extra mile.
The basics are covered well, good hot shower. Fast stable internet and comfortable beds.
The Breakfast is exceptionally fresh with a good variety for everyone.
An added little bonus is they supply HDMI cables to the large flatscreen TV in the room allowing you to connect your laptop to the larger screen. You can also connect a USB Hard Drive to the tv to play any movies etc you have on the big screen. This is provided free of charge and is one of the little comforts that show where they go beyond your average hotel of this price.
The hotel is in the centre of Jönköping close to lots of amenities. I haven't tried the hotel restaurant as there are lots of nice little places close to the hotel. It's also very close to the main bus station.
One reviewer commented about the nightclub at the end of the week, it does get quite loud until around midnight so bare this in mind if you are a light sleeper and maybe request a higher floor room. There are 8 floors.
