“Classic Scandic. Modern, basic, value.”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

For the businesses in Solna and Kista, it's a well located hotel, and if you are going to Kista, then you have the advantage of going against the traffic in the morning (i.e. it's quick, no traffic jams). The hotel itself is a bit soulless, but for a night or two it's fine. It's right beside the motorway, but I guess unless you are on a low floor facing the motorway the noise level is not too bad (the windows are triple-glazed of course, so make sure they are properly closed). I've stayed there several times and never had a problem. Not a home away from home, but reasonable value, and a comfortable bed for the night. If you are going into Stockholm, the cost of taxis to and from the hotel, plus morning traffic jams into the city will probably outweigh the cost benefits of staying here; I'd advise taking the train into the city and getting a room there for convenience, but otherwise, a good, basic hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid lower rooms facing the motorway, and make sure the windows are closed properly!

The hotel is a good place to be for businesses in Solna and Frosunda Port. I really like the act I can walk to my company's offices from here. A taxi to the same place will cost anything from 70 - 110 SEK.

I've had three stays and on each occasion had a comfortable, pleasant room. You get a flat screen tv, working space and two single beds. The bathrooms are basic, with only a shower (ie no bath) in 2 of the 3 rooms I had. Enough space to hang and store clothes, and ironing facilities seem to be standard. There is some road noise and if you need a window open it would probably be too noisy. I didn't find it intrusive. Wifi is free and I always get plenty of bandwidth for laptop and iPad. Your login works anywhere in the hotel.

The people are all wonderful, and willing to take time to explain stuff in English.

There is a small gym, with only two CV machines (bike, treadmill), free weights and a basic multi-gym. There's also a sauna and hot tub.

The restaurant is nice enough, but if you're staying regularly you might find the menu a bit limited. Not much for vegetarians either. You will find that a single course dinner and a beer will set you back between 180 and 280 SEk.

You can also get snack food (salads, sandwiches, coffee, cold drinks) at a shop in reception. But there is no room service.

Breakfast is included in the room rate and is a Buffet service. Masses of yoghurt, fruit, cereal, breads plus a hot option if you need it.

If you want luxury, forget it. If you want gourmet dining, forget it. If you want endless facilities as home from home, also forget it. But as a place to rest between working days, it's good value and comfortable.

Listen if your a light sleeper in anyway and you are in a room facing the motorway forget about it. It is now 05:33am and I have not being able to get any sleep. The windows do not fit correctly or they are of an old design thus allowing a large amount of noise in, apart from that, the room is clean, the staff are nice but the road noise is just not worth it. They did not have any other rooms free so I am stuck here. It will be a long day tomorrow.

I am giving the bad review due to this awful noise level.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the motorway and away from the lifts.

Pros: the hotel suited for my purposes very well. I stayed in a very quiet corner room in the 9th floor, the room did not have any neighbors and I could not even hear the lift "bling". Good breakfast. It also had quite good jogging routes nearby.

Cons: the room temperature was quite hot.

Reviewed 17 September 2010

Nothing good to say about this hotel. My room was on a floor that was being refurbished, so there was bare concrete in the corridor and lift areas. I waited 1 hour to get a meal in the restaurant and I am still waiting for the second beer I ordered. The rooms are dull and very noisy, I enjoyed the sound from the TV set in the next room most of the evening and first thing in the morning. (the walls are very thin!)
And to top it all it cost around €180.
I am not picky about hotels, but this is one of the worst I have stayed in. I would not recommend it to anyone.
