Nice spacious room with great view, on the negative side was renovation in the lobby area and crowded breakfast.

Cleaning was not good. I could find hair that was not mine on the floor, a lot of it. I had requested two single beds but did not get it and the room was very smal. But great location and good breakfast.

Great stay at Scandic Opalen!
It was a great experience, very clean, but they could put at last a bottle of water. The breakfast was delicious and abounded, but the breakfast-room wasn’t very warm. We’re there in March. The employees were smiley! The location was just great. We had a small, but great clean warm room. Thanks!

Two night and a car
Stayed there two nights. The hotel is modern and nice, there is a parking complex under the hotel, we were lucky and got a spot there. The breakfast was good and the location of the hotel is excellent.
