“Great staff, good hotel.”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We stayed at the Scandic Grand Central for a long weekend, myself and my son of 5 years. Its walkable, even for a 5 year old from the Central Station which is a bonus to make the most of a city break here. Breakfast was comprehensive if a little crowded - get there early - although we did find a seat upstairs.
The staff were very friendly and helpful in providing local information.
I would definitely stay here again!

It's nice and comfortable hotel, very conveniently located - close to shopping and the central station(no need to take taxi to airport). We liked room's creative design and comfortable beds to sleep. If you have sore feet, ask for a room closer to the elevator - the hotel has very long corridors. The breakfast, it is necessary to know in advance that breakfast is focused on the Scandinavian audience: every morning there sandwiches and meatballs. Nevertheless, the choice of bread, cheese and sausages is large. Rooms facing the street and the courtyard. in the second case, you'll sleep in absolute silence.

Room Tip: In the case if you travel with kids - we recommend family rooms: king size bed + convertible sofa (t...

Stayed for 3 nights from 15th to 18th April. Room small but well proportioned. Plenty of hanging rail for us as we weren't there long but not sure how people would cope if they were there for a week....Bathroom very nice with large walk in shower. Beds comfy and maid service every day. Breakfast was excellent - plenty of choice from hot, cold and organic - fresh bread and fresh fruit. Great location, 5 minutes walk from Central Station and about a 20/30 minute stroll from Gamla Stan. Excellent stay.

Me, my wife and our 10 month old son stayed here for three nights in April 2014. The hotel location is excellent, our room was big, clean and nice. The baby / toddler had plenty of room to scout around. Only improvement I'd like to see is bigger trash can to the toilet. It doesn't hold many diapers. Also the other trash in the hotel room was small and divided for recycling. With a small baby there will be all kinds of small trash so just bigger trash can would do the trick.

Nice hotel with an excellent location and breakfast / lunch buffet. Big thanks to the staff who helped us warm the baby food many times. A customer microwave owen on the breakfast buffet / lobby would also do the trick.

Stayed here one night. Hotel is located minutes from the train, with easy access to airport. Nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Amazing rooms.. Extremely clean, though small, are so cleverly designed with modern facilities and decor..you will be impressed. Great breakfast in lobby area. Would stay here again.

From the description and price, you may believe this hotel is in the 4 star category. I stayed here on business, and in my view however 2 or 3 star would be a more apt description. The reception area is gloomy (although reception staff are great) and bears more of a resemblance to a down market nightclub after throwing out time. The bar and lounge fall into the same category, and - irrespective of your taste in decor - I don't think anyone will fail to be disappointed by the poor quality breakfast. Both coffee and fruit juice come from machines, whilst the fruit salad is merely a pile of unpeeled melon and pineapple pieces !! Last time I came to Stockholm I stayed in a youth hostel here and experienced much better.
The reason I have the hotel a 3 rating is that the room and location is good - no complaints here - everything else however means I'm unlikely tor return.

Hi Suffolk3000,
Thank you very much for your review. Sorry to hear that you thought the ambience of the reception area was disappointing, though it is the interior design of the hotel, the style of the interior and decor doesn’t necessarily appeal to everyone. But we wish and strive to make that everyone feels at home with us.

Thank you for your honest feedback regarding the breakfast and we are sorry that it didn’t meet your expectations. We truly appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly prior to your next arrival, so that we can ensure it is as wonderful as it should be. We hope we can welcome you back. Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon.

All the best,
Azize
