Another reviewer recently wrote that this Scandic stood out compared to others, my experience was rather opposite. Stayed here two nights participating at a conference at the Stockholm Mass Centre, the location is in that matter unbeatable, and for once I was rather happy to stay here instead of commuting from a hotel in the city centre. I should say... More

I am not to keen on Scandic as a chain... they have to much of the pie and often offers too little value for quite high prices. Menus are streamlined and the same, no personality. Talk stands out though... in a good way. Located just by the big fair in Stockholm, it´s the perfect place when exhibiting or when you... More

We stayed in this hotel for a weekend in July and attended a conference in the accompanying conference center. The service was great and the breakfast likewise. The location was perfect if you are going to the conference center, and it was close to the train station for quite easy access to the Stockholm city centre as well. We paid... More

Good room with lots of space. Tv was in all honesty old and out dated plus small. Restaurant at the hotel was not bad. Big potions. Parking was a bit of an adventure and a ways from the reception. Not very Sentral just so you know.

The front desk staff are very friendly. If you have any question or enquiry, they are very patient to direct / explain to their best. There is a restaurant besides the lobby, 2nd floor and a sky bar are located at the 19th floor. The breakfast spread is not bad. The hotel room is spacious and clean. Located near to... More

Sweden is currently celebrating gay pride with rainbow colored flags all over the country. The Scandic also displays its pride with the rainbows everywhere and even offers its guests rainbow toothpaste as a gift. If only they would take the same pride in their hotel and service.

Scandic Rica talk is next door to Stockholmsmässan in Älvsjö. From 19th floor you have a solendud view iver Stockholm and surroundings . I enjoyed breakfast too but it was crowded and could be better organized. Free WiFi and clean rooms. Refrigerator in rooms. Super nice beds. Parking in hotel and car stays safe. Subway and train station close.
