We have stayed in this hotel before (we negotiated a good price on their top suite - great!). This time a relative from Japan stayed one night in a room with a very nice view. But... We wanted to spend time together so we booked an outdoor table in their restaurant. They recommended their grilled menu. To quote our guest...

Generally, staying in any Scandic is not supposed to bring one any surprise – the concept is well-known (well, at least in Scandinavia) and does not imply any luxury or other “business” features. For a family stay it is though a perfect place. Scandic Foresta is even better: close to an old-fashioned (from 70th) commuter train station which connects to...

Scandic Foresta has been around a while, you can see it if you scrutinize the rooms, but time is fair and good hotels last. Foresta is most certainly one of the good ones. We arrived 22 pm, had a shower without removing some hairs from the previous guests, slept while overhearing the conversation in the next room, had a lovely...

Very Scandinavian hotel, i.e. quite simple and basic. Needless to say, a) it does the job b) the rooms are comfortable and very well heated (for the stockholm winters!) c) lovely service from the reception staff ! The breakfast isn't great if I'm totally honest but then again it is free so you cant expect much. You have eggs, toast,...

An average (conference) hotel outside town in a well-off suburb. The place is nicely situated facing the harbor and waterways, and its very close to Millesgarden. Otherwise everything worth seeing and doing is at least 15-20 minutes off by train/buss/subway or taxi.

Very modern hotel on top of the cliffs with a great view to the ferry harbour. 24h shop onsite is good for beeing on a flexible schedule. Standard breakfast, the only downside is that the breakfast isn´t anymore in the room with a view described in previous reports. Spacious, modern rooms, but no AC.

Hotel is over the bridge from the centrum about 5 miles, so you pay a toll/congestion charge each time. Parking is approx €10 for 24hrs right outside and behind hotel. We paid for a suite , expecting a view. Not worth it, only the restaurant views the waterways, we had a view of taxi drivers outside and right into neighbouring...

One of the most romantic place to stay I've ever been! It's not far away from Stokholm center with different transport options (one stop on bus or old-fashioned local-tram + underground) but quiet green arey with breathtaking view on the bay from the cliff. Very spacious room with comfortable bad was decorated in restrained scandinavian style. And panoramic windows... ahhhhh......
