“City Hotel at budget price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

The location is very good and the hotel is still in a quiet sidestreet next to Humlegarden park.Nice bar -garage in the house-good and big breakfast and if you take the cornersuit you have an excellent space also to work and conduct some smaller meetings in the living room- still not really expensive.I have stayed here longer periods alone also and then the low budget in the basement has been good enough for me but with a 1.5 year old running and climbing this room is a good choice.The bar is popular and also the free wifi inside the hotel and the rooms works as in most Scandic Hotels very well.

Room Tip: corner suite 6 th floor

Stockholm is a like second home to me. Anyhow, it was many years since my last stay at Scandic Anglais. The hotel has transformed into something that I really liked. Very fresh an clean.
Nice rooms with a wonderful view of the park across the street. 10 point location in the center of the party district. Even so I experienced it to be a pretty calm street! One of best breakfast buffets that I have had in a long time! During summer, a magnificent and cozy rooftop bar overseeing the park is a well worth tip! Nice drinks in the afternoon sun!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a park view!

The hotel is in a good location and within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the water. Good start.
The outside looked a bit tired and shabby. Not a problem as the reception, lounge and dining area were open plan, clean and spacious.
Staff were friendly and welcoming. Check in fast and efficient.
The room (allegedly a superior one) was frankly a massive disappointment. Yes, it had a large balcony one could step out onto but the room itself was long and narrow. It looked and felt really dated. Old, tired. No effort had been made to bring it up to modern standards. The 'bathroom' had no bath. Just a shower. The space was small and cramped.
The overall feel - not good.
Breakfast was good. Fresh food. A variety of dishes on offer.

Would I choose this hotel again? No. Not because of anything terribly seriously wrong. It is just there are better hotels for the same price in the city.
If the hotel was refurbished and larger, better appointed rooms were offered then I would definitely consider returning because of its location.

The location of this hotel is definitely an asset - close to the hot spots of the city and very lively.
The breakfast offers a great variety of choice even for the picky ones. As a minus i would add that during the week end it's very noisy and at times hard to sleep due to that.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor - quieter, therefore better sleep.

Hey, fancy some massive techno tunes banging through your room into the early hours? Then come to the Scandic Anglais! Yes, you too can pay to stay in a hotel room that fails in the most fundamental respect - i.e. having the qualities that allow you to sleep.

The bar, awash with music at noise levels that wouldn't be out of place in war zone, is, by the way, almost empty - so it's not like the hotel is compensating for lost repeat business from actual paying guests by attracting drinks revenue from techno fans. Apparently we have to put up with this until 2am because the hotel management 'can't tell the food and beverage manager how to run his bar'. Is this establishment run along feudal lines I wonder?

Even if there wasn't a deaf hipster playing his record collection at bowel-troubling volumes in the bar the extractor fans in the bathrooms seem to run constantly and will keep you awake when the techno has died down. At Scandic prices you expect something a bit more. Yes, it *looks* like a hotel, but is *sounds* like student party. Hey Anders Ehrling (President & Chief Executive Officer of Scandic) try sleeping here...

If you must stay, bring earplugs!

Room Tip: Try another hotel

We stayed here as part of our cruise package with Windstar, so I do not know the price. The hotel had a really, really nice breakfast that I think was included for all guests. Our hotel room was clean, had wood floors, duvets, good pillows and nice reading lights. We opened the large windows to a beautiful park across the street no bugs, a real plus. The room also had a fridge and 110 outlet in the bathroom and a hair dryer. Our bed was 2 twins pushed together, but it worked out fine. It did have limited English speaking TV, but also had lots of paid movie options. The hotel had a small rooftop bar (converted from a guest room), nothing great, but we did have a drink there. The hotel had FACE toiletries - must be good and local) as there were several FACE stores around the city. I would stay here again.

As a business traveller I didn't have to worry about the pricing of this hotel too much but if this would have been a personal trip I would have looked for cheaper alternatives. I stayed for one night in a small cabin room which had a 120cm bed and was quite nice. The decor was stylish, the room compact and the wifi fast. You don't necessarily need a password for wifi from the front desk if you log in for 12 hours as a guest. A window would have been nice to bring in some natural light and to keep track of time in case you wake up before your alarm clock.

The breakfast was extensive, one of the best hotel breakfasts that I have ever encountered (though it is common for me to skip breakfasts if I travel for business). The lobby bar is quite ok although this specific early thursday night a bit slow. The location of the hotel is really good.

Really the only complaint about the hotel was a dripping air conditioner(?) in the room which woke me up as I got a water drop on my face in the middle of the night. The dripping wasn't too extensive and I only needed to move my pillow a bit and continue sleeping. Unfortunately I forgot to report the problem as I checked out.
