Scandic Östersund Syd3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I like to spend the evenings here when I¨m travelling. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. Breakfast is all you need. As Östersund is a university town it offers plenty of pleasure as well as opportunities to skiiing and other sports. In july while "Storsjöyran" brings lots of musicians from Sweden and abroad, this is the perfect hotel - good sleep without disturbance. Plenty of buses passes by in direction of the centre of the city.
There are two things special about this hotel. First: The corridors are reeeeaaallyyyy long. I think I lost weight walking from and to my room ... so actually it is positiv :-) The reason me ending up in room 462 was because I needed a quite room so the receptionist gave me the best option: as far as possible from the restaurant and the other guests. The other thing is the Staff. I like service ... and boy what a service minded staff they have at this hotel. I can not tell you about it ... you have to experience it but everything I asked for was provided with a smile. For me this is number one, just as the little red car I discovered in the reception. Can you find it ? It is magic, just as the stay at this hotel !
Delightful, clean, friendly hotel. This is probably our 4th stay here. The room was just right ... but it is the service and the breakfasts we love. When we come here we feel like we're returning to see an old friend. I had a bit of an accident on a mountain bike, not only did they provide me with antiseptic wipes to clean my wound, they asked after my well-being through the rest of the stay. Charming Sweden at its' best.
We stayed here before an early morning flight out of Östersund. The hotel is located near a campground and large water park, and appears to be heavily used by Swedish families on vacation. It resembles a mid-1960s U.S. motor lodge, but has been nicely upgraded inside with very efficient rooms that can easily accommodate a family of four. Twin bunk beds pull out of the wall Murphy bed-style. The bathrooms also have been upgraded and have plenty of room for setting down essentials and hanging items (a rarity in our Swedish adventures). The onsite restaurant serves very good food. The included breakfast is delicious with a wide assortment of foods. Free wifi was fast, unlike several other of our hotels in Sweden. While it is not mentioned through some booking sites (and we found out after-the-fact), the hotel does offer adjoining teen rooms at a discount.
I appreciate that this hotel is quiet and calm and the staff is both helpful and friendly. Very nicetasteing dinner. Some things were emoty at breakfast even though we had breakfast early. The room was ok. Nice with a big bathroom.
We went to the restaurant at 19h15 Restaurant closes at 21h00. In the restaurant they are telling us that we can only take from the buffet (€ approx € 168 p/p) because there is No 'a la carte' that evening. We think okay this is a Scandic hotel so it will be OK... But what a dissepointement! Although the restaurant is still open for almost 2hrs, more then half of de dishes are empty. The 'left over'-food is terrible and not tasty at all! We paid about € 290 for the two of us including two little beers. It was € 290 to much, It is a real shame!
We reached there for lunch ten minutes before our reservation time. We were reprimanded like schoolchildren and told we had to wait (standing around for over half n hour, watching four or five guests eating at the restaurant) Finaly sitting down we were commanded to hurry up as other groups need to use the restaurant. Some of us had their plates pulled away still eating. Asking for desert triggered off another command to get up and leave. We did leave as fast as possible (Who wants to stay overnight?) By the way. The food was tasteless and the rice was kind of half cooked. Ordering drinks? No time.
Worst hotel ever! After cleaning there was no toilet paper. Worst cleaning ever. Cold rooms, poor service in the resturant. The food was not good, like they have smashed everything together and doesn't care about the taste or presentation. It was more worth to get food at circle K.
Nice and quite hotel to visit with children. Price for the family room iš also reasonable, about 1000 norwegian krones. Very good breakfast with choise for everyone. Hotel has sauna, gym and relax! Good parking place, no problem to find a place. It is ice machine, pc in the facility. Very close to the Storsjøbadet and a 5 minutes driving to the centrum.
Generous space in former farm land as you still see the little forest close downtown close to the lake close to old school and gas station next door w the only swim house in the immediate area just nearby. Standard generous breakfast and bar in clean spaces.
