Excellent location in Gamla Stan and superb (included) breakfast. Room is very small but great bed and fantastic bathroom with real shower doors (to prevent water overflowing the floor as it does in most other "modern" hotels) made up for the difference. Recommended stay.

Very friendly staff. Check-in was quick, with a review of Covid status and some history of the country.

Scandic Gamla Stan
Clean room. Little uncomfortable and old sofa and tv in front of the sofa instead of the bed. So couldn't bother watch the tv. Very good location and good service.

Great Location
The hotel is located right in the heart of the city in Gamla Stan. It is easy to walk to many of the museums and other locations tourist will want to see. The hotel breakfast was good and the staff were friendly. Due to COVID, they are only cleaning rooms every 4 days but you can always request an extra cleaning if you need one. Much like many hotels in Scandinavia there isn't American-style AC so if you are here when it is hot be prepared. The hotel was very well-priced and I would stay here again.
