Scandic Backadal

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I basically ended up at this hotel because it was the only one available at the time. The hotel is located outside the city, and basically not close to anything of interest. But since i came by car, it had its advantages being located next to E6 and with free parking inside the garage. The rooms were not that good, but not bad either. I had a good night sleep, and the breakfast was ok. There is nothing special about this hotel, its a sleeping machine for people passing through it seems like, but all in all just average.

Smelly bathroom, bunkbeds too small and uncomfortable, unless you are a small child. Location nearby the freeway. Small rooms. Nice straff and very good breakfast including some glutenfree alternatives.

Very friendly personnel, good room, clean, good bed, good breakfast, not expensive, but at the highway, no airco, and at the gas-station in front of the hotel a lot of illegal stuff is going on at night like drugs dealing. The dog was welcome, but the area is not so suitable to walk the dog between the apartment buildings behind the hotel. The fold away beds of the family room are not suitable for grown up children.

We were pleasantly suprised that there was a swimming pool. It was great to relax after driving 500km in a car. There was also a wonderful Summer Buffet at the restaurant for dinner. We loved it! The room was alright and spacious for a family of four.

This is a hotel that is very easy to access as it is just on the outskirts of Gothenburg. Rooms are tiny and bathrooms are so tiny that you cant turn round in them, on the plus side bathroom had heated floor cables. The room was very clean but it was dusty, it was well cleaned but when you sat on the bed alot of dust came up and from ventalition. Breakfast was chaotic, it was difficult to find somewhere to sit and as soon as you found somewhere when you went to get food someone else sat at your table, everyday..... The hotel could have organised better and ran out of most things tho they did refresh within 15 minutes and in the wait there was enough. The hotel overall is 2/3 starts but the staff were fantastic and for this it gets 4 stars, they are what makes the stay worthwhile, we had one in particalar on the evening and he went above and beyond which is a real deal breaker for me

A bit far from town but a nice hotell with good prices. The hotell are not accepting cash, a bit strange for many proportioner but not a problem for us. Free parking lot, in garage or outside. Right next door are a gas station if you have to fill up your vehicle

Scandic Backadal is a regular Scandic Hotel well situated for guests arriving on wheels. The staff is very friendly and I strongly recommend the breakfast. The room had everything to be expected and a newly renovated bathroom. I would personally preferred a thicker mattress pad but taste is individual.

As good as expected. I bit of side from Gothenburg but good connections. Right beside E 6 easy to find and great locked parking areas. the staff is great and the breakfast is at always super at scandic hotels.

Ok, the room was nice but it was boiling hot when we got there. It was a sunny hot 75° or so out yet they had the heat cranked up. You have to call the front desk to lower the heat as you have no controls. You could only open the window a crack. There was only ONE twin-ish size blanket for two of us on a queen-ish size bed and it got chilly at night. Not enough to want the heat back on! I just always like to cover up. So the first night I couldn't get any blanket after my boyfriend fell asleep, so I had to put on a hoodie and socks. The second night he turned the blanket so we could both use it, but that left it too short as either my feet or upper half was totally exposed. The shower floor was so slimy and gross I had to stand on a small towel in there. They have a gym but I hate when they have limited hours. I woke up at 4am with nothing to do. What's the difference if the gym opens at 4am, 6am or is just 24 hours? You need a key card to get in anyway and the front desk is 24 hours. Breakfast had many great selections of hot foods, oatmeal, yogurts, fruits, veggies, pastries and juices. But it was always insanely crowded in there, even from the moment it opened. They also have free parking which is awesome, but there is nowhere to park while you check in and out to get the keycard that allows access into the garage. There is nothing in walking distance of this hotel.

Nice enough hotel and our room was a nice size for 2 adults and 1 child. The fold down bed was comfortable. There were plenty of tables at breakfast and a typical (good) Scandic breakfast. There is free, secure parking at this hotel and the bus stop for the bus into Gothenburg is very close. Reception staff were really friendly and helpful. Will stay here again.
