“Wonderful hotel”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

This is one of the best Scandic hotels we have ever stayed in. The room was quite big, and the window was larger than in some other Scandic hotels, overlooking the sea. The breakfast was delicious and the breakfast room overlooked the sea too. The hotel isn't very close to the centre and it takes quite a while to get there but the place is great and the view wonderful. I definitely recommend this hotel.

I can only say good things about Foresta. We stayed in a suite, with a lovely balcony that basked in the afternoon sun. The bed was majestic, the bathroom fresh and the view magnificent. The breakfast room overlooked the water, and I suggest you make time to have a loooong breakfast.

I stayed at Scandic Foresta for 4 nights, I was attending a work meeting which was held there. The hotel is not in the city center, and you need to cross a bridge by bus and take the metro to get to the city center, so i wouldn't recommend it for people wanting to see Stockholm in a couple of days. Rooms are very spacious (got a double room although staying alone), but some of them have a view over the industrial harbour, not that nice. Hotel is quite expensive, I wouldn't have chosen it for myself on a trip. It seemed like they had many meeting/conferences held there at the same time, and they are very well prepared to attend the needs of such meetings, taking into account rooms, coffee breaks etc. Breakfast is served in a nice room overlooking the surrounding waters (and harbour), and is the typical generous Scandic breakfast buffet.
There are trains crossing the bridge every now and then, and you can actually hear them quite well even at night, so that's a minus point for the room comfort. Room was very comfortable, bathroom very basic but ok.
The rates are very high, and although Stockholm is an expensive city I think the Scandic Foresta is overpriced...

Excellent hotel, even though it is 20 minutes from the city with the public transport it feels like you are at the countryside. Great view: you see green, the see, a small island and a bridge from which the train goes.
Friendly service and the place very quiet and relaxing.
Breakfast was average, traditional swedish i guess, but i didn't go there to eat in first place!
The view from the room is breathtaking, and a walk around the hotel is marvelous.
I definitely recommend to take the train and go all the way to Lindigo, very nice route through the forest and it ends to the see.
I would go again, no, I will go again!

We chose this hotel because it was close to the ferry terminal. Last-minute price was 795kr (~80e). Hotel is on the top of hill with beautiful view . To get there you have to drive to the end of metro line, then take charming old local train and walk up the hill. Or to take bus or taxi. Anyway, it takes some effort to reach this hotel from centrum. Also there is nothing special in the neighborhood, but it is nice area to take long walk.

Room was big and stylish with very comfortable bed. Simply great!! We left the hotel before breakfast time, but we got some snacks and coffee from the bar >> positive suprise.

If you accept not central location, this is a good choice!
