      Historical Traveler Reviews Scandic Continental Stockholm

      Location Location Location and a great room!


      My daughter and I stayed for three nights in early August. The hotel was everything we expected with a lovely reception (including fruit and internet access), clean rooms/bathrooms and the convenience of being close to the railway station, old town and shopping. The rooms were 'european small' - big enough to fit two people and suticaeses, but not much room to move around. This did not matter much to us since we spent most of our time outside viewing the beautiful city of Stockholm. The breakfast offering was varied and plentiful but there is little choice for lunch/dinner in the hotel or room service. The location though afford a huge variatiy of restaurants and convenience stores closeby (Tip - do not at any costs go to the Pizza Hut across the street for lunch - maybe they were having a bad day, but when we were there the wait staff and kitchen could not keep up with the volume of customer for the lunch buffet). The transit systems were a snap since the metro and many major bus routes (also the main city railway & bus stations) are within 100m of the hotel. Most importatnly, the hotel puts you in walking distance of all of the major shopping areas, the old town (Gamla Stan) and the beautiful Town Hall. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a comfortable room and great location but does not expect 4 or 5 star amenities. Finally, there are some great pictures of the Beatles in the lobby from when they stayed at the hotel in the 60's!!!



      This hotel offers a variety types of room, and I happened to stay in the smallest type. The room is very, very small, just enough for one person to move around at one time. But the room is good value if you are passing by Sotckholm and need to stay for a night at a place near to the Stockholm Central station (2 mins walk to Stockholm Central).

      The room itself is nicely decorated. But the toilets could have been cleaner. Nice location, 10 mins walk to the Old Town of Stockholm (major sightseeing area). 15 mins on the Stockholm Express to Arlanda. There is free wireless access + free fruit at the lobby. Staff attitude could be improved.

      A very nice place to stay!


      The hotel has everything to make your stay a lovely memory: good staff, nice rooms, generous breakfast to kick-start your day and a perfect location!

      Good hotel in a convenient location


      Had a good stay at the Scandic Continental. It is in a very convenient location just across the street from the main bus station and railway station. This means it is ideal if you are coming from any of Stockholm's airports.

      The rooms were smallish and recently refurbished. We had a magnificent view from the eighth floor.

      One complaint is Scandic's booking system takes no notice of your stated booking preferences - we were initially given a smoking room with single beds having requested a non-smoking room with a double bed. Fortunately the staff were very friendly and resolved the issue following our complaints.

      The food is excellent and the breakfast was generous. Their restaurant, Niki, was also great value - it offered a high quality three course dinner that was much cheaper than the local restaurants. This prompted us to eat regularly in other Scandic hotels elsewhere in Scandinavia offering the same good value.

      Overall we were very pleased with the Scandic.

      Great Value


      The Scandic Continental hotel is right across the street from the Central Train Station and walking distance from Old Town and major shopping areas. There is a bus stop right outside de lobby entrance and the metro station is half a block away. The hotel is in a safe and quiet area. The room was very clean and the buffet breakfast was very good. Personnel were very friendly and helpful. There are two computers with free internet connection in the lobby. I highly recommend this hotel.

      Great Breakfast, Great Location, Great Service, Owned by Hilton...


      This hotel was a former Hilton and has a large breakfast buffet, the location is great as it is a stone throw away from the main train station in Stockholm. There is a sauna, small workout facility, and complimentary fruit trays on every floor. Free wireless internet is also available in every room! I would definately stay here again.

      Good Location


      Good location, walking distance to the many sights and shopping. Huge buffet breakfast. Nice bar and good bar food. Free Internet access and very friendly and helpful staff. Small rooms with no air conditioning. Good bathrooms.

      Can't beat the location


      You just can't beat the location; right across from the central train station. We had a station-side room which was kind of on the small side. No problems at all with noise. Very nice breakfast in the morning. Overall not as good as Sergel Plaza but close...

      For what we paid for it was great though I would not want to pay the rack rate for it.

      Great stay at Scandic Continental


      My wife and I arrived mid morning on Saturday after an all night flight. The hotel was very busy, but the front desk speeded up the turnover process for the room and allowed us to check in and refresh ourselves early.

      The staff was very cordial and helpful, giving us hints on sites to visit on our short stay before heading up north.

      Hint: Use the Arlanda Express from the airport to the city, the hotel is directly across the street. Cost for 2 during the weekend was 200 SEK.


      Enjoyed the Scandic Continental


      The Scandic Continental has many great amenities. The location across from the Central Train station makes it very convenient to get to. And the breakfast is lavish and in a very nice room with good views. The rooms are tiny but clean and comfortable. They make them look like ship cabins with mirrored walls to reduce the sense of clostrophobia. With a small single-person bed, TV and shower it has everything you need. But opening you suitcase can be a trick.

      Overall, I liked it. But if you need more space you will probably want to go somewhere else.

People laughed (with me), and I showed them pictures. It was good times.  Then we took off. I walked to my hostel with the Dutch girl and Polish girl. We walked around some more, and I was hungry and came back to the hostel. I told the girls to come back next week! They were really nice, and I would love to get to ...

      ... by bus, it took almost two hours.

      What we saw was a bustling capital city, with a busy downtown area, lots of museums, a big lake, and some impressive architecture, along with some very unimpressive architecture.

      Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate, and we were repeatedly hit with rain squalls. The upper deck of the bus where we were sitting was covered by a tarp, but the rain managed to reach us anyway.

      As usual ...

After all the grief that the 7mm monster in the red corner had caused, I was ready for a rematch. The decision made, I was soon lying in a bed in my own room on the top floor of the hospital. "Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow," they told me. 7-9 May 2014: Each of these days followed a similar pattern. I would ...

      More walking around the city, nothing spectacular


      Finally after over a week Stockholm was in the rear view mirror. We did have to alter our plans a bit. Instead of driving north to Kiruna, the plan now is to drive south around southern Sweden returning to Stockholm to drop off the car and then take the ferry to Turku, ...

      After a few hours Nan and Aunt Sal went in search of some morning tea but were disappointed to find this train didn’t have a buffet car so they had to settle for a cup of boiling water and a tea bag and they got Pop a cup of coffee. Our ...
