6/10 Good

Smallest bathroom in the world, Don't stay here.
Smallest bathroom in the world. Water ran either boiling hot or cold. The bathroom floor was uneven and i tripped and cut my toe open, that was fun. The toilet was pressed up to the shower, JUST RIDICULOUSLY SMALL. This was not a cheap hotel, it cost well over $200 CND to stay here. Room was small and cramped, no fridge and the staff seemed totally indifferent to its patrons. I dont recommend this place at all, its in a good location, but there are a lot of other hotels in the area, choose one of those.

Location excellent. Classic example of effective and stylish Scandic refurb of older building. Excellent breakfast (tho' no bananas!) Appallingly bad soundproofing from next bedroom (448/ ?449).

A perfect option for business and pleasure
Scandic The Mayor is one of those hotels that looks like a local institution. Its location is literally between the railway station and the town hall, in the heart of the city (most transport lines connect in front of it). It has a stately shape and the rooms did not disappoint: my wife and I got a superb corner room facing the town hall fountain, iconic tower and park, and the street. The room was wide, with enough space (apart from a wide double bed) for a padded reading corner, table with TV and working space, and a tea table with two stylish leather armchairs. Plus storage space. A large, practical bathroom complemented the room. Simple, Scandi furnishings, with dignified lines and sturdy materials. Free tea and coffee in the room. No minibar / fridge though (perhaps the only minus). Breakfast was a good spread including muesli/granola, sandwich ingredients, eggs, pastries and fruit, plus tea/ coffee/ juices (including self-press for oranges). The breakfast restaurant is a Michelin-starred establishment in the evening. They also have a paid-for mini-shop with toiletries and snacks. Perhaps toiletries not stuck to the wall would have added to the atmosphere, although I appreciated the quality and brand (FACE). Overall, we had an absolutely great stay, in a large dignified, well-designed room, and with good breakfast during a busy business trip. If I have the chance, I will surely return!
