Scandic Jarva Krog
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Solna
Reviewed 4 September 2009

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.

I nearly gave up on visiting my friend in Stockholm because I couldn't find a decent priced hotel anywhere! I stumbled across the Scandic Jarva Krog which offered a double room for 2 nights with breakfast for £169. Still pricey but because the flights were so cheap it worked out ok and seeing as I was taking my Mum it didn't seem right to hostel it

We were quoted the equivalent of £50 in a taxi which seemed well over the odds seeing as the hotel is only supposed to be 4km from the city so we decided to go by public transport.

It took us a while to work out where the place was as no-one in stockholm central station seemed to have heard of of the hotel or the area.

Eventually we got the right info (which I've now forgotten - sorry)so we took the the 9 min train journey and arrived at the station which seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. The peope at the station told us it was a 25 min walk to the hotel (not good with bags). However, a friendly local butted in to the conversation and told us it was a 5 minute walk and he would show us the way.

We went out of the station and he pointed us int he direction of a short cut, which involved walking through a forest and across a building site. We follwed his advice and eventually ended up at the hotel in one piece! Once we got used to this journey it was ok but we missed the train one night and had to wait half an hour and walking through that forest in the dark was really scary especially when we saw someone walk into the bushes and not come out!

The hotel itself was very nice, there is a hot tub and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast is good, plenty of variety and some English breakfast (eggs, beans, bacon). If you can afford to take taxis in and out of the city it would be perfect but I think the journey in and out of town would get annoying if you were staying any longer than a weekend.

spent two nights at Scandic Jarva Krog in (or better say) not far from Stockholm this September and I strongly advise anyone against this place. I was travelling with my grandmother and a 6-year old daughter and I asked for an extra-bed. When we arrived the bed was there but not the extra towels. When I called for a towel the reception guy asked if I minded coming and picking it up myself (which was a good 5 minute walk as we were put in the far wing of the hotel). The bathroom was smelly and there were no other toiletries except for some kind of face/hair/hands & body wash with very strong (and in my mind unpleasant) smell. I understand this to be a part of a Scandic environment protection program but I still think they could use something with a more neutral smell. The hotel public areas look shabby with a floor board missing here and there and suspicous yellow stains on the ceiling in the play room.
The only hotel restaurant served one third of the dishes from the menu on Sunday night provided there are no other dining options nearby. We had dinner with a friend and when I asked the waitress to make two separate bills she said it is impossible.
Besides, the hotel is pretty far from the train that takes you into town though it could easily be reached by taxi.
I have always had very high opinion of Scandic hotels but this stay was rather disappointing and I do not think I will ever stay there again.
