We stayed during a weekend in a bigger room (was it "Superior"?) with a very nice view. The room was comfy and clean, nothing to complain about really. May be that the breakfast restaurant is a bit 'simple' and gets crowded very easily. They were short of staff one morning and struggled to keep up appearances and tables clean. You...

Hello Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. I am so pleased to hear that you had a good stay with us. Wonderful that you took the time to visit our beautiful surroundings on the island. Millesgården is absolutely worth a visit with their amazing sculptures. Hope to see you soon again. Best regards Jenny

The room was good with nice sea view and an excellent bistro with delicious barbecue buffe. High level of service by bistro staff. The beds were somewhat hard/stiff though. Visit the art museum Millesgården nearby with sculptures outdoors and art by Carl Mlilles.

I can not complain on anything particular, well, almost, there is no elevator to the floor in the old tower where our room was. I expected something old style, charming since it used to be castle but nothing charming with this hotel! Room was quite big and clean, with basics, nothing extravagant. Very clean lines, very swedish-sometimes too simple and...

My entire family stayed at the Scandic Foresta this summer for three nights, ages ranging from 5 to 75.

This hotel apparently used to be a top choice for the rich and famous like Walt Disney, the Beatles etc. You can see beautiful people hanging out by the pool in old pictures from the 60's.

Scandic Foresta is located on the Lidingö Island just one bridge from Stockholm (about 7 km from the downtown). We had a car, thus it was very convenient to go back and forth to downtown. The parking is 90 SEK for 24 hours. If you do not have a car, you can take the public bus and subway. The hotel...

We stayed 3 nights and were very pleased with this hotel. The service was very friendly. The rooms are clean, the view from our room was fantastic. Breakfast was very good as well, the best we've had for a long time. I especially loved the tea selection. The city centre is a bit off but the bus stops a block...

I stayed at this hotel with my two children, aged 18 months and 8.
