Borlange, Sweden

A nice hotel that lies in the middle of Jönköping. It has all the necessary amenities you need and it's definitely worth the money. The breakfast buffet is a nicely presented and overall good just like any Scandic Hotel; although the Gym could use an upgrade. If you're sensitive to noise you should not stay here during weekends, but other...

Thank you for your kind words! Our location in the middle of the Jönköping is definately one of our biggest advantages. Another benefit regarding the central location is that we have a lot of neighbours to cooperate with. For example we cooperate with Nordic Wellness gym. You have direct access from the hotel and the price for training or relaxing...

Located close to everything and good value for Money. The staff is very friendly and helpful. No real bar or restaurant but it is OK to sit in the lounge beside the reception desk. I stay at this hotel everytime I am in Jönköping.

First the good things. Location is great it's in the middle of town, gym is nice, the breakfast is good above average for a Scandic hotel, breakfast personal is great. The bad hotel is staring to Åge, the check in / front desk is slow, getting the little food they serve in the lobby takes forever. But the pizza I...

Hello! Thank you for your kind words! I agree, the location of the hotel is fantastic and our breakfast truly is wonderful - especially the staff! Our kitchen in the lobby is quite small, so when there are a lot of hungry guests the waiting time can be a bit long - but the food is worth waiting for! I...

Very good place to stay and very good location. Superb breakfast included. Good wifi. Clean comfortable room. Only reason not five stars was the room was a tad bit cold even with heat on high. The price was a bit high due to business convention in town. All in all would recommend and would stay again.

Big hotel next to railway station and city center. The room had a desk with power outlets, and WiFi worked fine. Good breakfast with ample seating and many choices, including hot courses, starting at seven also on weekends. At check in I had to wait for the clerk to finish a lengthy phone call. To buy food items sold in...
