This was my first time in a Scandic hotel. We chose the brand because it offered a Swedish student discount. I was expecting something akin to a three-star accommodation, however I was pleasantly surprised.
It can be easily reached from the Stockholm metro, about ten minutes from Stockholm Central Station. The property is a three minute walk from the Alvik metro stop. It is set back from the main street so it is very quiet. There are trees behind the building so it felt like staying in a forest, even though it is in an urban area. There is a supermarket across the street and a few restaurants within walking distance.
The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our handsoap dispenser was empty so we rang the front desk and it was filled whilst we were out to dinner. The dining room staff also let us have cutlery and silverware one night when we had a bedroom picnic.
The room was big enough for two people. There was a desk lining the window wall, which was shaded so no one could see in even without the blinds. The television was nice with a good selection of Swedish and English channels. The WC was also larger than most I have seen in European hotels. The WiFi was fast and efficient.
The free breakfast was a huge perk to staying here. It had many varieties of traditional Swedish fare along with gluten-free options. Fresh fruit, knacker-bread, cereals, eggs, meats, cheese, jams, tea, and coffee were plentiful. It was definitely not a continental breakfast.
There is also a small gym with separate men and women saunas.
It is close to Stockholm and easily accessible. Overall we were pleased with staying here.
