Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Acceptable but with some major issues
Felt like a worn down hotel that’d been renovated to an ok standard, but nothing fancy. Plus: Great breakfast Minus: No way to control the temperature in a room that was really warm. Silverfish in the bathroom :(

3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Room comfort
OK for short stay, lavish breakfast
Basic Scandic hotel providing everything you would expect from the brand. Hotel was rather old-schooled and rooms needed renovation, but that expected from small town hotel, beds and pillows were as thin as you can get, and neck pain was inevitable. Breakfast were lavish and you could get anything you may imagine, yet again, Scandic breakfast is always top notch :) Other than, good loaction, very central, very quiet.
