“unreliable, do not arrive late!”
Reviewed 26 April 2012 via mobile

i was due to arrive in stockolm at half past midnight. i called the hotel in the morning to keep me the room and to tell them that i was going to be late. i arrived at the hotel at 1.30am and guess what? my room had been given away and there was no room available. i was sent to another scandic hotel and given a tiny and basic room. Not a very good experience and if you happen to do a late check in at the scandic anglais then good luck!

Yes this hotel is in a good location but very noisy , especially on Friday nights . We are a family of 4 and booked a family room . It was SO TINY I couldn't believe!! The sofa bed would definitely not sleep my 2 daughters so ended up sleeping on it with 1 daughter. It was so hard and so uncomfortable , so the next day I asked for a new mattress or some ore quilts we could put on the bed at reception . The lady said she would see what she could do ! Well no surprises that nothing happened and I had another uncomfortable sleep! After living now in Sweden for 6 years now I should be used to NO customer service but I was hoping as this was a hotel. WELL I was RIGHT ! Nothing happened some daughter and I had little sleep. There is also no tea or coffee making facilities in our room either and the bathroom sink took to long to empty. Awful view from the room!! Would not stay here again !!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park.

The Scandic Anglais is right in the middle of the trendy area of Stockholm. And this atmosphere grows into the hotel it-self. It has a very nice bar with a live DJ and a lot of cocktails and drinks.

Side-by-side with the bar is the restaurant that also looks and tastes very nice. The food is not amazing but it is quite good for a hotel. It clearly shows that the Nordic food industry is taking a jump forward in quality and attention.

Going into the hotel review it self I have to talk about the rooms. And they are not big. At least the standard room is quite on the small side. From a design point of view is good enough, and age wise it's also nice (not brand new but refurbished not long ago), however both the bathroom and the room are not very big. The TV is on top of the work table and the mini bar was completely empty.

The room looked clean and everything worked well. On this department one negative note for the light switches. There is no master light switch and it's a pain to go to bed to have to stand up gain and go into each individual light to turn it off. You can always take the "card" out, but it's an approach rather strange...

Another negative not results from the fact of the hotel also works as a bar (until 2am). After that the start cleaning up everything and you are invited to leave even if you are a guest of the hotel. The "business area" closes very very early as well so there is no proper area to work after 22pm...

Final negative note goes to the noise in some of the rooms. If you get a room facing the main street where Sturecompagniet (bar/club) then you will ear a lot of noise (cars and people) well through the night. The windows in the room are not new and the sound from all fuzz is well noticeable in the room.

I was coming directly from work, wanting a good night sleep. As I know fridays are packed here I called in advance and asked for a high floor room (booking a superior). The girl answering my call told me that she would definitely put me up for a high floor room..

Still when arriving late night friday, I got a response (from not-so-nice personel in front desk) -no, they are all gone, your room will be on lower level.. No possibility to change, I fell asleep about 05 pm with two gigantic pillows over my ears.. I don't mind a party, but depending on the situation.. I was there to sleep, and this actually was a hotel .. The room (considering the price paid) was not in any way fancy, overlooking the other parts of the hotel. Only good thing I believe was breakfast which was open until 3-4pm next day meaning no stress (probably because that's when people wake up after the hangover there).. Also, of course it is on Stureplan meaning going there for a good party and night on the town I would probably rate this hotel alot higher coming to value.

Asked for a late checkout as I was pretty tired after this night, did not get it.. I didn't get anything out of my stay here..

Recommended for: Party people
Not recommended for: Anyone wanting to sleep

Room Tip: Obviously the high floors (make sure you get it written), if you want a good nights sleep..

Location is very central, practically on trendy Stureplan, which is perfect if Stockholm nightlife interests you. Otherwise, make sure to ask for a quiet room, especially on weekends.

The room (standard) was very small, and the queen bed rather narrow for two. OK for spending one night, but not more. Not much place either to put your clothes after unpacking. Again, OK for a very short stay, but not for a longer one. Consider a superior room for longer stays. A feature I really liked was the empty minibar. Instead of filling it with overpriced stuff they leave it empty and let you buy whatever you may want in their reception store. You may of course buy your drinks or snacks in any supermarket and bring them to your room… Quite the opposite of those dreadful “autodebit” minibars that charge you as soon as you remove a water bottle to free some place for the children’s yogurt!

The breakfast was an excellent buffet. I particularly enjoyed the juice presser, allowing the guests to quickly and simply make their own orange juice. You cannot get fresher juice, and it is a very good compromise between offering as much as possible without having to charge for an extra service.

On the whole, this was a very good option for a short stay in central Stockholm, and I would certainly stay again.

This hotel is a trendy place with a vibrant atmosphere in the lobby where people gather to get connected to the internet, have a drink or eat something in the restaurant. I was there for business, needed a meeting room and all was perfectly organized. Just be aware that you make good arrangements: if you do not specify your arrival time or confirm your precooking with a credit card , as in the case of a colleague, the hotel assumed an arrival between 3 and 6 p an they will sell your room. After all, a perfect stay. Nicely located close to the hopping streets and only 5 minutes taxi (or a long walk) from Gamla Stan.

Scandic is good at creating a similar experience across al their hotels in Stockholm. This Anglais is no exception. It's not the newest, but because it is located next to Stureplan, it has a lively bar and is close to the right places from Thursday till Sunday.

The rooms are good and on par within the Scandic group. Nothing to get excited about, but nothing to complain about either. Breakfast is great and the staff is polite.

This is once of those hotels that attracts a lot of people in the city on business, but not the boring types. Try the bar, but be careful ordering cocktails and long drinks: you may run out of money:)
