Great value, great service

service, location and price
A VERY nice stay. The staff was very friendly and serviceminded. THe location is superb and it's near shops bars and restaurants. If you want to stay at a pricy hotel near the city centre with good standard and a friendly staff, I definately recommend Scandic Sjöfartshotellet

Nice roofbar
Small room - no view.... Paid extra for a queensizebed - instead of two others.. Really nice bar on the roof.
Restaurant Tip: Visit the bar on the roof.

Great location but small rooms

some features of the hotel
The hotel is near the old town and center station. The breakfast is good. The standard room is quite small. Actually, like a single room with adding an additional bed.

Good location - the rest rather poor

Location - close to Slussen subway station.
The hotel has a good location close to 'Slussen' subway station on the southern island of Stockholm 'Sodermalm'. That part of the city is my favorite part of the city with good bars, nice small shops and good cafes and restaurants. For the tourists it is also pretty handy since it is close to the Old town as well as the ferries going to Djurgarden. The location is however the best part about the hotel. The building itself is nothing special but the lobby and bar is rather modern although as most Scandic hotels it has a slightly boring and 'cheap' feeling to it. I had booked a double room for 2. This had however somehow been missed - can't say for sure that it was the hotel or the booking site (Agoda) but my voucher said for two people. The room was however a small room with twin beds and not the requested double bed. Since it was the Stockholm Marathon the weekend in question the hotel was almost fully booked so it was not possible to get another room decent room. There was no offer of any compensation, they offered a 'cabin' room which is room without windows (and with a bed 120 cm wide) which would not really have been an improvement. The room was as mentioned with two beds and it was small. There was room for a desk with an old fashioned TV (that had a tendency to turn itself off now and then). It was barely possible to pull out the chair at the desk without it touching the bed. The room was decorated in some type of marine theme (as is the entire hotel). Not very modern or nice but at least it was clean. The bathroom was also small but sufficient, no bathtub but a shower. On the plus side there was an iron and ironing board. The hotel also offers free wifi (both in common areas as well as in the rooms). There is no minibar or room service but there is a small shop in the lobby to buy food and drinks. The hotel also has a very nice roof top bar with a nice view of sea where ships enter the city. On nice days be there early (it opens at 16.00 most days

Scandic Stockholm is the best!

Free bikes for sightseeing, great bar and restaurant, nice people.
A friend and I spent 4 days touring Stockholm and stayed the entire time at the Scandic Sjofarts Hotel. It's perfectly located south of the old part of town. There is a variety of shopping, restaurant options within a five minute walk from the hotel. You can also use free bikes provided by the hotel to explore farther adventures. The free breakfast was the perfect way to start every day. I am now addicted to Sweedish coffee.
Nightlife Tip: Stureplan is the primary area for nightlife but you don't need to to leave the local vicinity to enjoy the nightlife without standing in line to get into the club.

Centrico y bien situado

Centrico y limpio
Fue una estancia corta pero agradable. Lo mejor del hotel fue su cercania al casco histórico. Podías ir dando un paseo y en cinco minutos estabas en todo el meollo. Ademas también está muy cerca el mar y puedes coger un barco para hacer un crucero o un ferry para ir a ver el vasa museum
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: El casco historico y el vasa museum

Atención del personal y el desayuno buffet.
Las habitadciones sin ventanas dan mucha sensación de claustrofobia, y creo que por el precio que se paga deberían tener ventanas. Uno de los ascensores no funcionaba bien y no podía parar en determinadas plantas.
