Recent guest reviews
The hotel is excellently located for trip to Öland Also the hotel has good entertainment area for children. We like the swimming pool and Sauna and children like the swimming pool and the game corner behind the reception
Tidy room, cousy lobby, friendly reception. Free WiFi. The breakfast was generous and had plenty to choose from. The restaurant has a nice evening buffet. We ordered from the menu and the service was really slow. Still, the food was good. The hotel is near the airport but far from the Kalmar city centre. Nice choice if you are on business trip and tight schedule.
Very nice hotel in Kalmar, although it is outside the city centre. Recently renovated room with good standard, clean and nicely furnished. Nice and friendly staff in reception, cleaning staff and in the breakfast room. We were presented a gift (vanila fudge) from one of the staff when we had arrived to the room! There was plenty to choose from on the breakfast table. There was also gluten-free alternatives on its own table with own cutting board and toaster.
Just spent the weekend in Scandic in Kalmar and we had a nice stay. good service, good breakfast and location was ok, but only if you have a car at your dispousal. Nice pool and a game area to enjoy. Nothing special about the rooms, small and standard
The hotel is quite dated. Floors are old, bathroom interior is functional but nothing close to fancy. The breakfast included was really nice and the staff was awesome. We paid 1200 Swedish kronor per night which is... not cheap for what you get but not great either. Room wifi is free and fast (5 Mbps), parking was free just outside hotel and the hotel is located slightly outside Kalmar center so don't expect to walk into town.
This is an aged facility, so of course you should not expect too nice rooms but as it is nicely maintained we felt it was a good stop over while traveling through the region. Rooms was as expected and nothing to complain about. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was really nice with a lot of fruit what did exceed the expectations. As the price/ value relation is not too good it gets only 4 points. Side-note: We had a room with a view to the backyard and could enjoy watching a huge number of bunnies jumping around during the evening hours. Very funny!
The hotels location is perfect if you arrive by car, as it is right next to E22. Our room faced the highway, the traffic didn't bother us at all. All of the staff were serviceminded and friendly. The breakfast was as it usually is in Scandic hotels. Gave us a good start! Parking is ample.
The hotel was very clean and had expected standard of Scandic hotels. It's out of town so a car is a must. I found a price rather expensive (even with Scandic Friends dicount) for such an average hotel, but we were there in the peak season, I suppose it's cheaper other months. The pool is small but very nice, definitely the best feature of the hotel.
Hotel was clean but lacked air condition. Had to keep all windows open during the night. Restaurant was closed on Sunday's but a limited selection of salads and wine are available at the reception. Breakfast is included and was OK. TV had the usual Swedish cable channels and some English as well.
I stayed here one quick night on business. It is situated some distance from Kalmar town next to the highway which is useful if you are just using it as a night stop on your way to somewhere else. If you intend to see Kalmar it would be better to chose a hotel in the city. It is a fairly standard Scandic, with helpful and friendly staff, a basic restaurant (the meat served was tough and not of high quality though) and a high degree of cleanliness. Bearing in mind its remote location and glum surroundings I consider it slightly overpriced.
