This was my second visit to Scandic Foresta, and it was just as pleasant as my first. We stayed on the forth floor with a view over the parking lot outside the front of the hotel. The rooms are quite big and has all the stuff you can expect. One thing that I actually only have seen in this hotell...

A nice hotel whit very service minded personal. Good food, and nice view. Just over the briidge from Stockholm city, so close to town, yet so quiet and harmonious. Have stayed here many times and sure I´ll will be back soon.

Some of the staff at the resturant could not speak swedish. The food var quite bad, burned on the surface and raw just below the surface. It took long time to check in in the reception. The hotel is quite expensive.

The restaurant at the top of the hotel towards the south offers fantastic views over Harbour. The conference rooms also offer great views, although some have a somewhat dated fit-out. The lunch buffet was ok. I did not try the alla carte menu, but it looked good.

Second time I ran Lidingöloppet and we tried to get closer to the event-site. Location is good the only bad this is that you cannot get on the free bus connection between Ropsten and the event. The hotel itself feels worn-down, the common areas especially. The rooms are good size and clean. The resturant was too small and overcrouded in...

We stayed here for 2 nights and three days. The hotel itself is average compare to the hotels i've stayed. The building is old. This needs a renovation because this hotel doesn't have airconditioning, fridge and safety box in the room. But they do have electric fan. The family room is spacious. The bar and restaurant closes at 10pm which...
