Scandic Foresta

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Scandic Foresta has a bit of a magic to it, built almost like a fortress and on an "island", but it has unfortunately seen its glory days. Our room had a view into the yard, and not to the water. Breakfast wasn't amazing, we missed good coffee and some variation in the fruit etc..

Unfortunately, my stay at Foresta was one of the worse stays in a hotel, ever. I have stayed at a couple of hotels in Sweden, including Scandic Hotels, but this one was by far the most Dirtiest and most unhealthy stay I have ever experienced. I have changed 3 rooms and was not able to find one that had no issues. All rooms are spider infested (most infestations happen in the tower rooms). The staff excuse was that they tried to get rid of the spiders but they come back. Well if they tried to get rid of the spiders than you wouldn't see HUGE spider webs in the bathroom (especially ventilation holes) or on the windows. I cannot recommend the food either. Compared to even the cheapest hotels in Sweden, this was mediocre. And that is to bad because in spite of all that I have had the pleasure of experiencing fantastic views from the room windows and also from the restaurant terrace. This hotel has A LOT OF POTENTIAL, I mean it's a hotel build into a castle on a Hill. It is brilliant. To bad that it is in horrible condition. The furniture is not old, it is prehistorical. The cleanliness is mostly nonexistent ( I had to show the housekeeper where and how to clean. They DO NOT USE DISINFECTANT, which I think should be considered a crime. And much much more. I even took pictures, if someone should not believe me. If you want I can share them with you. THIS WAS A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE AND I AM SAD THAT I HAD TO USE MY REWARD POINT FOR THIS DUMP. IF I WOULD HAVE KNOWN I WOULD HAVE OPTED FOR ANOTHER OPTION, EVEN A CHEAPER ONE. SCANDIC you have disappointed me. Good bye.

Stayed one night during a wedding weekend toghether with three family members and was, like always with Scandic, very happy about the standard. The rooms were clean and had a fantastic view over the water. And as always - superb breakfast!

Got a room in the old tower. Nice view and exiting place. Very good service. Breakfast was average+ During 10 days I been at just as manu hotels and this one have good parking space. I can recomend this hotell.

We stayed here for one night and we like the view over the sea. The rooms were quite large and the beds were ok. No aircon and safe deposit at room. Parking costs extra. WiFi and breakfast included, breakfast was ok with few warm and cold dishes. The location is a bit far from the city and we needed to take taxi when we were out late as bus and metro stopped for the night.

Away from the pace of Stockholm but only 15 minutes by Tbana to city center. Easy 10 minutes walk to bus or Lbana for Tbana connections. Excellent restaurant with incredible views from the terrace. Quiet rooms as hotel located in residential neighborhood just steps from Millesgarden- a premier museum for Stockholm. Great shopping in Lidingö Centrum.

A short distance outside the city but easy to reach via train then one stop on tram or 10 minute walk, but up a steep hill. Nice setting with comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast. Lidingo town a short walk of 5 to 10 minutes away with a few shops an a bar and restaurant.

I stayed at the Scandic Forests hotel for two nights in May 2017 during a business trip. I had a single room on the 7th floor. The room itself was clean which is always important and had a desk. It was what I would call functional ok for a business trip as I was out most of the day. The bed whilst looking a little basic was actually quite comfortable. The bathroom was ok but the shower cubicle was quite small and looking tired. There was no air-conditioning​ in the room and just one small window which made the room quite dark. The WI_Fi was free and there was a good signal through out the hotel. I ate in the bistro for two nights the food was good and the service was fine. There was a large seating area outside with good views over the harbour which I could imagine would be nice in warm weather. I did stay here a few years ago and had a larger room better furnished (even for single occupancy)so my guess is the hotel was busy and my room was more of a overflow room.

The hotel and the rooms need renovation, however the view is good. Location is quiet, but I would not recommed it for business. Service at the restaurant and reception might be faster considering that there were not so many people.

perfect stay as usual, in summer try to enjoy the terrace restaurant and dinner while sun goes down, excellent kitchen super friendly staff even the side to Millesgarden is nice, saw this stay reindeers in the morning walking through the park :)
