“Tiny rooms but good location”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The location of the hotel is great, right in the city centre. Apart from that and the friendly reception staff i cannot find any other reason for staying at this hotel. The rooms are tiny with a bed 140cm which can hardly accommodate two people. No option to change room. No mini bar, coffee-tea or any other facilities in the room. Just the basic Scandic non-existing amenities.
The breakfast was ok but the breakfast staff was very slow in replacing empty platters, forcing guests to have to wait up to 10 minutes for some bread or cutlery. Tip to the staff: refill the platter before ALL items in it run out and not 10 minutes after.

This hotel is very convenient (about 200 yards walk) to the Slussen transit center which is one t-bana stop from Gamla Stan and two from t-centralen. Check-in and check-out were efficient and friendly. The room I chose was a double with a window and en-suite bathroom. Breakfast buffet was expansive and included in the room rate. Lots of choices for cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, herring, toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, beans(!), coffee, tea, and milk. The only real problem was with the housekeeping. Water glasses were not changed, nor even cleaned. Towels were not changed, even after several days and left on the floor. I finally resorted to picking fresh towels off the cart in the hallway.

Room Tip: The least expensive rooms have no outside windows.

First 2 times, perfect. But 3rd time is always unlucky. So half expected Murphy's Law to kick in, which is true enough. However, bad experience will not deter me to stay at the hotel again. Reasons why going back? 1 is Location is central to both the place I need to work and Slussen subway station. Traveling is easy from there. And 2 is it is a cosy place. Sure there are other hotels around, but with the upgrading done, I am sure the hotel will be even more cosy and warm. My only wish is front office is kept more informed of what they have in the hotel. Misinformation can be a put off.

Room Tip: Cabin room is only good in winter as you don't have to feel the cold from the windows.

As a regular customer of Scandic hotels in Finland I expected this hotel share the same quality with them. That's why I had a bad disappointment visiting in Sjöfartshotellet. The room was very small and it's best days had gone a long time ago - though it was called their superior room. The hotel was also very noisy, the voices from neighbor rooms and corridors came through the walls to our room. One and maybe only good thing in this hotel was breakfast buffet. Never again.

Stayed for one night in a standard basic Scandic. Double bed is 140 cm?!! Delivered according to expectations regarding room and breakfast, however the service in the bar was awful.
Firstly it was difficult to get served, and then they closed the bar without any warning or last call.
Only go here if every other hotel is full.

Wonderful location in Sodermalm. Easy to get anywhere. Slussen subway just a few minutes away. The hotel is walking distance to Gamla Stan and central Stockholm and sits right on the water with wonderful views. If you can afford to it is definitely worth getting a premium room on the 7th floor as they are much bigger and have a balcony and rooms on one side overlook the water.

Room Tip: 7th floor premium rooms are the best.

Spent just one night in this member-hotel of the "Scandic-Family". Absolutely marveluos staff, especially anne-karin (I guess?) on the reception, unforgettable breakfast, perfect cleanliness in the room, great location, good isolation of the windows from the traffic noise. The room was a bit small, but I was on my own, so that was o.k.

I especially love the SCANDIC marketing image. Also you should become a SCANDIS-friend, it's fun, you'll see.

Thanks for this great stay!

Room Tip: Be a SCANDIC-friend free of charge and you will get lot of benefits, like fresh newspapers, Food&...
