“Nice view, long walk down town”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

The hotel is across a bridge from down town area. Break fast, lunch and dinner was very good. Rooms are good. Training room was small with not so much equipment. As a conference hotel or for business trips it worksgood. For vacation it a bit "off sited"

Stayed November 2013

Great hotel, property, rooms and restaurant. It's a very popular place too for tourists and locals. However the staff is very lean, and once has to wait a long time at the reception....as there is only .....one ....yes, one person most of the time at the reception....causing queues and delays.

We spent 3 nights here with our 2 children. I do recomend this hotel although the bedsofa in wich our children sleeps is very old and sounds a lot when they move in their sleep.
The staf is very polite and eager to help. You can park your car in the hotelgarage and it costs 90 sek/24hours. We had a superiorroom with a great view overlooking the waters and lidingöbron!
Great connections to Stockholm City. Aprox 15 min to T-centralen (city), old town, Skansen and other activites for children.

I stay here often, and really like the hotel. Are you lucky to have a room with view agains west be sure to enjoy the sunset. Fantastic food, in summertime, you can sit outside as well. Breakfirst is good compared to other scandic hotels. Will for sure recomment this hotel to friends.

I stayed one (very short) night at Scandic Foresta, and was woken quite early by the light going through the blinds. The view from the room in the early morning is great, and I must say that sleeping was comfortable. I think I got an upgraded room as there was a small sitting area with Sofas and a table, overlooking the bay. Bathroom was clean, with a rather small walk-in shower, but it took me a few minutes of trial-and-error to set the shower to the right temperature.
The breakfast, served in the small "Brasserie" on ground floor was average, nothing exceptional to mention. All in all, an average Scandic experience that I might repeat should I need to stay in that part of the town.

The Hotel is completely different to what you see on their website. The seafront rooms would overlook the bay. And the refinery or whatever this industry is on the other side of the bay. But certainly not a nice view of the city of Stockholm. But anyway they won't give you a seafront room but a room overlooking the car park. The bathroom was worth a photo. See attached. If I read the reviews of my other trip advisor friends I feel that they are talking about a different Hotel. Maybe they had other rooms. Or maybe I shouldn't have booked through booking c om …
