Stayed here for several nights in late August. The hotel is about a 15 minute taxi ride outside the city center.....about $25 one way by taxi....in Solna. there is a train station in Solna that will get you to Stockholm, but I never did look for it. It appears to be a couple km away on the map, I do not know if there is local bus service to get you there or if you need to take a taxi.
From the hotel to the airport is a 430 SEK taxi ride (about $60). there is also an airport bus that stops at a shelter on the frontage road along the E4 highway at the exit near the hotel. It is 5-10 minutes walk or so, but did not look like fun if you had bags....a flight of stairs with 15 steps or so. Was about 100 SEK, credit card only, on the bus.
Scandic hotels are no frills. Room was clean, bathroom was clean. Linens were cheap. Furniture is uncomfortable. There is no AC so if it is warm you will have to leave your window open and deal with the traffic noise from the E4. Wireless internet was free. Breakfast is included in the rate and was fine. Dinner at the hotel restaurant, a la carte, was ridiculously expensive for the caliber, so I settled for the buffet on my last night. Cheap but completely lackluster pasta with chicken or pasta with salmon and a salad bar.
Reception was friendly and helpful. Services in the lobby include snacks/drinks/coffee. Did not have time to try any amenities like pool or exercise room, however the hot tub is out of commission right now and is being redone.
At $220 or so a night, not a great deal, but not a terrible one.
