6/10 Good

Only for sleeping
Upon arrival the room was not clean. The whole place is crying for a renovation. The location is perfect and the bed is comfortable. Mold in the bathroom, ventilation is unefficient.

Great location
The location is great, everything is within walking distance including the airport shuttle bus stops. The room was fine, bed were comfy. However the bathroom needs some love. The sink tap was lose, the floor moves underfoot and the shower does its own thing. The radiator in the bedroom was hanging off. We never saw anyone else, when we checked in we rang a number on the door, they gave us the key safe number and we let ourselves in. The bar downstairs we found to be quiet, maybe in summer it gets busy and noisy but it never bothered us. For a short stay this hotel is fine.

Central and great value for money!
The Skansen Hotel is a bit worn down. However it's clean and quite OK. I stayed Mon-Wed and had no trouble with noise as many other gusts have observed. Taken into account the price and location. I would rate this a great value for money stay in a ok rom :-)
