I have been staying at this hotel for years, before the great Scandic take over and sadly it is declining. I asked to print of my return boarding pass, this is not possible in the usual way. I was escorted to a guest PC, with no printer and the PC not able to connect to the main desk printer. So it was impossible to print these out. I cannot think of another hotel where this service is not possible. The room which holds the guest PC is smaller than a broom cupboard. The toilet in the front lounge cannot be opened unless reception give you the key code - I am not making this up! The bathroom smelled of drains, despite being the top floor.
All in all it’s very sad that a lovely quaint small hotel has been taken over by a corporate giant and has now lost all that made it very special. Very disappointing.
