I have stayed in several Scandic Hotels in Stockholm before (Scandic Continental, Scandic Park, Scandic Anglais, and Scandic Sjöfartshotellet), and this is probably one of the nicest. It's a new hotel, so everything is in good shape, and the room (4th floor) was very quiet, although the lobby and bar seemed quite crowded in the evening. Breakfast was nice, the bed was comfortable, and the room was clean.
However, I don't like the idea of having to put the key card in a slot in order to turn on the electric lights. I know that this is a popular invention, and that Scandic Grand Central is not the only hotel with this system, but it's stupid. If Scandic Hotels want to be environmentally friendly by reducing electricity consumption, perhaps they shouldn't leave the television set always on; I'm sure the TV draws more power than all the lights in the room combined. (You can of course turn the TV off, but it's on when you enter the room.)
I also didn't like the fact that it's more or less impossible to take a shower without leaving the bathroom floor covered with water. There is a hinged glass door which you can use in order to not soak the entire bathroom, but most of the bathroom floor inevitably becomes wet.
