Excellent location next to river walk and near to studios of friends. About 15 minutes from downtown, but very walkable; downhill from hotel, uphill back to hotel. Well-maintained hotel from lobby to rooms. Very full and tasty complimentary breakfast, well-suited for N Americans!

A place to share C-19
The room was ok, the location is good. However, the breakfast arrangement was a catastrophe. We are due to C-19 still in a situation where distance is needed. There were no regulation on where to sit and the number of visitors simultaneous attending the buffet, resulting in chaos and all to many people in a very restricted area. The idea with distributing plastic gloves might have helped if they had fitted also male hands - they did not - and most visitors did not use them anyway. One functioning coffee machine with long unorganized line ups made several of us not drink coffee. This was disappointing from a large hotel chain like Scandic.

Overall ok stay. Some requests weren't accommodated. Asked for a second luggage floor rack and was told "we don't have an extras". Comical, considering half the rooms were kept empty due to Corona-virus related regulations. All non-guest room restrooms throughout the property are closed, again due to Corona fears. Doesn't make logical sense since the daily breakfast buffet is full of guests sitting and breathing in the same room and touching the same utensils over and over again, how is keeping some single restrooms open for guest comfort more dangerous than the breakfast situation?
