“Not perfect, but excellent value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

It's not one of the smartest hotels, but it is very clean, friendly and like all other Scandics does an excellent breakfast. The decor is a bit tired, and it's not far from a main road, but compared to many other hotels in Stockholm it's very well priced.
OK, there's no air conditioning and the window stuck a bit, but the staff couldn't be more helpful providing a good electric fan!
The view's not great - main roads to the front, building site to the back - but you get what you pay for! And we wanted just somewhere to crash after sightseeing.
Not easy to find restaurants, so we ended up in Vaxholm several times.

Room Tip: The back is probably quieter.

The room was clean and nice, breakfast standard, menu limited in the evening. The rating is only average because of the very poor service at the front desk. The staff has some improvement to do. The staff was not serviceminded at all, took personal calls at the same time I checked out, couldn´t answer my questions and was overall not interested in giving a good service.

I will not be back if I don´t have to.

I've stayed at some good Scandics but this was not one of them. The room was tiny and the toilet and wash basin so close together it was difficult to use either. My biggest complaint is that the room was really hot with no way to reduce the temperature other than by having the window open - the hotel is adjacent to the main road so the choice was to fry or be deafened and I got 2 hours sleep. The worst thing was that with the window wide open for 15 minutes the temperature dropped to an acceptable level but within half an hour of shutting the window it was back to being stifling.

Pluses were the free and excellent WiFi, reasonable breakfast and that the room was spotlessly clean. However the price was around €160 and frankly it should have been half that price for the quality of room.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms face the main road - you don't want to be in one of those...

Not very good service at front desk, the menu was limited. The room is quite small but it was clean . I wont go there again if I don´t have to. The breakfast is basic and with no extras.
Very much noise from the other rooms in the night.

Room Tip: Dont know how to get a googd room

I stayed for one night. The rooms are basic but clean. Free wifi works well. The restaurant had a very limited menu on offer. There are also snacks and sandwiches for purchase in the reception area. There is a small gym and sauna on the ground floor which is OK. There is not much in the local area but if you go left out of the hotel you will soon reach a small supermaket and a row of shops. One of these a pub/restaurant does decent takeaway pizza at cheap prices especially compared to the hotel.

I had a good nights sleep and the breakfast was a decent hot and cold buffet. Overall no complaints but definitely nothing fancy. Would have given four stars other than the price paid which was too much for a hotel which is effectively on the side of the motorway well outside Stockholm.

Not a lot to say - badly located (highways, noise, ...) - 20minutes from city center by taxi - Very expensive (because of a congress I think) -- very poor service at the front desk --... for sure I won't go there again...

Scandic hotel Taby is an OK hotel with nice breakfast.
Don't expect any views as this hotel is just next to the highway.
As it's only 18km from the centre of Stockholm, are you looking for more than just a night's sleep, I'd stay somewhere else.

Free parking, and location makes it a good place to stay, should you arrive late at night and not expecting any sightseeing.

Although in the summer - there are some nice places to go swimming only 5 min drive away. And for shopping, the large mall/shopping centre of Taby is a 10 min walk away.

  • Liked — it's better than a motel
  • Disliked — location
