Scandic Linkoping West
Ranked #5 of 13 Hotels in Linkoping
Reviewed 21 November 2013

The lobby looks promising (it was redecorated lately), but when entering the room I thought that I smell my grandma apartment. The walls are covered with wallpapers and equipped with old furniture. The breakfast is good and there is also a nice sauna and a small and not so warm pool. The bed is small and no so comfortable.

Hello
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on TripAdvisor! We have just finished a quite extensive refurbishment through the hotel although not all our rooms, hopefully that will come in the future.

This is a super expensive hotel usually frequented by business travellers especially with the ones located in Mjärdevi center. in the range of 1500 SEK and upwards. Clean and good frukost in the morning. Bicycle available for free for the rental time.

Even though thi s Scandic Hotel has an advantage of being located outside the city of Linköping, and therefore ideal for those on the road trying to avoid city parking fees for overnight stays, and the fact that is is undergoing refurbishment (to be completed later 2013), there is little excuse for sticky surfaces on the floor in the room, and a breakfast dining room that needs far greater attention by the breakfast staff on duty. Especially when there is a morning rush and the breakfast buffet gets emptied in just a few minutes.
Even though our room was far from the refurbishment work and sounds, we were unknowingly allocated a Pet Room (for people travelling with pets). It seems the the Front Desk "forgot" to mention this when we checked in This unfortunately caused my wife a minor allergic reaction and gave her a sleepless night. This is NOT acceptable. The promise from the morning checkout staff that someone from Scandic would contact us to promptly discuss some form of compensation didn't happen either (at least not within the two days passed since our stay).
Hopefully the new interior will improve the impression but work has to be done at improving the caring for this hotels guests.

This hotel is clean and has a good breakfast. The complimentary bikes are a big plus. As other reviewer have said, this hotel will never win any contests for charm and grace, it's not the height of Swedish design, but you aren't paying for that at this price. The WIFI, the gym equipment and sauna all worked well. The staff was as friendly as one will find in Sweden.
The security could be better, the windows open up to the outside. If the window is open some one could easily enter the room especially on the first floor. It is a student area, so this is a concern.

Room Tip: Request a room on the second floor if you like fresh air.

After a ten hours drive by car we valued the easy access from the motorway the most. The hotel is nothing fancy on the outside and the room we got was a bit outdated but at least it was quiet and clean. And it had four beds.

The staff was really friendly. The lobby and the restaurant had some nice character of the times past and again our children loved the playroom. Food was good there and breakfast was excellent.

In the morning we had few hours before heading to Stockholm to catch a ferry so we visited the Linköping old town and the Swedish Air Force museum. Both are located near the hotel.

It may be the Swedish prices but after travelling in the UK, France and Germany this hotel would be expensive for Paris. Rooms are very old but the staff at reception and in the reception are friendly and efficient. Wifi works well and if you can get past the 80s feeling its not bad at all. Great for business travel but unsure if I would stay here on holiday

Hi!
Thank you for rating us at Tripadvisor, and for staying with us when you visited Linköping!
I just wanted to let you know that we will refurbish the hotel this year, starting in July.
So next time you will meet a more "modern" hotel on the inside, with the same friendly team members to welcome you.
Welcome back!

The room I got (284) was in good condition and looked new, except for the bathroom.
It was clean and quiet. The only downside is the location. The hotel located outside the city center. I arrived 1 in the morning and the helpful staff quickly checked me in.
