Location quite good but something strange

Location good
I have stayed in this hotel on 29 and 31 Dec 2015. My booking on 29, didn't know why changed to 1 Adult and I need to pay extra fee to the hotel. On the 31 Dec, I check-in again and they couldn't find my booking and it took so long time to check-in again. I was told all the non-smoking room was full and they arranged a smoking room for us which really smells so bad. I think the hotel location is good and the staff is helpful but i think i wont stay there again.

OK for Location

Lots of tour groups, queue at check in. Lots of traffic and the public areas feel a little tired. Good and functional room. Good location when in transit, close to museums. Lack of character overall. Crowd at the Breakfast buffet.

Huge hotel, but VERY disappointing !!!!

the location
Unfortunately, can NOT recommend this hotel at all. The only 2 good things about it, were the location and the relatively friendliness of the people at the reception. Other then that, did not enjoy the stay here. Rooms cleaning is VERY poor !! amenities at the room pretty much ZERO !! Stayed in room facing the main road, which is very noisy. Safe in the room, the smallest I have ever seen. Breakfast was the worst I have seen, during the one month travel in Scandinavia. poor selection, bad attitude of restaurant staff. Tables at the restaurant are filthy. Bar and restaurant are closed on Sunday, never seen anything like that in hotels. Luggage-room is free entrance for all. I felt lucky to find my bag, after a couple of days that I put it there. You get no bag tag, no nothing. Self used Luggage-room storage, that anyone can walk in and take your bag. Never seen this in any hotel in the world.

Breakfast location staff
We had a great stay. Central location, delicious breakfast and good value for money. We would stay there again.

Good hotel in a central location.

Good breakfast, good location.
The Scandic is centrally located and is within the heart of the city. The rooms are a little on the small side as you'd expect, but is still very comfortable. Their breakfast is pretty good although seating is quite hard to get when it gets crowded. They have a little kiddie area in the lobby and behind the hotel is the station with easy access to shopping and restaurants. We had a good stay overall and have nothing to complain about.

Perfect base

Amazing breakfast, excellent location near railway station & comfortable.
Very pleasant...surprising that their bar was closed just because it was Easter, though! Didn't seem to have cafe facilities outside breakfast/evening dining times. Noticed what looked like an upper floor bar when visiting Tori's for coffee & their view(!) which could be better utilised...we would not have known it was there. Restaurant very good with friendly staff. Free left luggage very useful when travelling on later than very civilized midday checkout! Comfortable beds & comfy seating in room too.
