I was staying at Scandic only for 2 nights but I was more than pleased. Very good location - I didn't have to use public transport at all. All distances are walkable. Very friendly staff at the reception desk. I was checked-in in minutes! My room was very cozy and rather spacy. There was a renovation in that time (July) but I didn't hear any noise at all.
It was a bit hot, though, and no air conditioner in the room. But I only came there to sleep so it was not a deal breaker. A big single bed. Furniture was a bit too old but I think it will be replaced during the renovation.
I visited the swimming-pool. It was not very big but clean and I felt very fresh after it. However, I found it not easy to figure out the directions. When you enter the room with SPA it is not so clear where to go: shame on me, but first I ended up in a male changing room and sauna - good that there was no one there :) It would be good to have some big arrows or signs as there was no service staff in that area. Maybe it was just stupid me but I was really confused where to change for the pool :)
Breakfast area is big. WI-fi works ok there (and in the room too). The variety of food is not fantastic but it is impossible to be hungry.
It was a nice experience and a good value for money!
