“If you need to stay in this area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

If I was here to vacation or sight see I would definitely stay closer to the city.

4 business associates and I arrived into the hotel on a Sunday afternoon, after checking in we decided to meet up and eat. The restaurant was already closed. No other restaurants were open close by and being too tired to go into town our options were limited to Cold sandwiches and beverages available in the lobby area.

The morning breakfast buffet is adequate.

The rooms are not very spacious but for a single person with little baggage it was fine.

As it is close to a major highway if you want a quiet room request one away from the highway.

Room Tip: As it is close to a major highway if you want a quiet room request one away from the highway.

Thank you for your feedback online after your recent stay with us.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused regarding the opening hours of the restaurant. Unfortunately, we have decided to keep it closed on Sunday evenings. Though, offering a good variety in our SHOP is of course a given!

I wish you warm welcome back in the future.

The hotel is okay but of 8 people ordering food, all but two had to be sent out since it was cold and poorly cooked.
When we pointed out the problem, we got new food sent out pretty fast though.
The location is'nt that good, situated alongside a big highway. Not more than 140 parking spots is a small margain.

Thank you for your comments after your recent stay with us.

I am delighted to read that our restaurant staff handled the situation well regarding cold food, though we apologize for the waiting and cold food.
Regarding the parking, I would like to point out that we offer free parking and there is also several other parking facilities in the nearby area.

A warm welcome back to Scandic Järva Krog!

Near to airport. Not a very great location location but good service.

Not very near to the city center so if you need to spend most of your time in the Stockholm city then taxies will cost you more.

Co-operative staff. Clean and comfortable rooms with Wi-fi access. Good breakfast options.

Recommended for business stays if you know what you are doing.

When you pay over 200 € per night, you expect some level of comfort. This hotel simply gives the value of a hotel where you expect to pay 70 € per night. Basic rooms, nothing fancy, a breakfast room that reminds me of the refectory in my high school - which if over 25 years ago, btw - hence a complete rip-off.

As other reviewers have pointed out, the location is a complete disaster, but that is something you are supposed to know : this is not the hotel you book when you want to visit Stockholm. It is not in the city center. But again, why such a high price of such a location ? A mystery to me.

Stayed here 2 nights because its next to our office. The hotel is next to a motorway and in general its not in a very attractive area. There is a nice park 10-15 minutes away for walking and exercise. I went running a few times and it was very nice. It has very good connections with the airport, but its quite far from city centre. If you are planning to be in the city centre a lot you should probably stay somewhere closer to the city centre.

It is quite close to the airport by car and to the city by bus or metro. The metro station is 5-10 minutes walking distance. The prices are ok and I like the fact that breastfast is always included and children are free. Food in the restaurant is a little expensive, breakfast ir really ok. Rooms are basics and no fashions but clean and confortable.

Newly renovated this hotel is in a much better state than earlier. The rooms are basic but clean and quite nice. The location of the hotel is next to the motorway but rooms indoors are not exposed to much trafic noise. The airport buses (to/from Arlanda) stops very near the hotel and local busses to Solna and Danderyd stops in front of the hotel. The trainstation in to city is only a short walk away. As the price is much lower than in the city this is a good option as it is easy to travel by public transportation. It is also free of charge to park the car outside in the parking lot of the hotel. Breakfast is good with many choises but I have got better ones at other Scandic hotels (they are in general top standard when it comes to breakfasts compared to many other hotels). Very helpful and kind personal at reception. The place are a bit "sleepy" and quiet but that`s fine. Has a small spa section where you can go for free.
