    Good hotel on a fancy neighbourhood

    by

    Scandic Park is a typical four star Scandic hotel found in almost every major city in the Nordic Countries. The rooms are big, beds are comfortable, and the breakfast buffet is good. Everything just works, and the price is decent. In our case, we spent less than 100€ per night for four people (two adults + two children). As an additional perk, we got a family room that had a big sofa bed for the youngsters. The hotel has an excellent sauna facilities on top floor with street and park views.

    The major perk of the hotel is the location on the trendy Östermalm area. Most of the luxury and fashionable boutiques in Stockholm can be found on and around Birger Jarlsgatan, a few hundred meters from the hotel. There is a good selection of restaurants, cafés and pubs in the neighbourhood, too. The nearest grocery store is just around the corner, There is also a huge park just next to the hotel with a good children's playground.

    Scandic Park Hotel

    by

    Smart and stylish 4-star business hotel in a relatively quiet area just north of the city centre. The hotel is on the north side of the attractive Humlegarden park, which backs onto the Royal Library, and is only a 5 minute walk from Stureplan. Our standard double room was a good size by Scandinavian standards, and the bathroom was quite large, with a bathtub.

    Friendly and efficient service, and the usual good quality/good selection Scandic breakfast buffet. It is small enough to have more of a boutique hotel feel than some of the larger Scandics.

    Its slightly out-of-centre location means that it is probably not the Scandic of choice in Stockholm, but if you can get a cheap rate it is certainly worth it for the larger rooms and more exclusive feel.

    Unique Quality: Pleasant location on the edge of a park, but within easy reach of the city centre - especially the trendy Stureplan and Ostermalmstorg.

    Directions: On the north side of Humlegården.
    Bus routes 1, 42, 44, and 55.

    I payed 1540SEK at Scandic Hotel Anglais, but it was a reduced price. I don't know what the full price could be, but definitely not lower :)
