Scandic Kramer

Nineteenth-century style

8 Overall

One of two Scandic hotels on the edge of Stortorget and by far the most imposing, this is a grand white building adorned with attractive stone balustrades. The hotel threw open its doors in 1875 and has clung onto its 19th-Century charm.

Walls clad in veiny white marble bounce light around the ostentatious lobby, where the reception desk is made from mahogany panels. The hotel’s main stairwell, with stained-glass windows midway between the floors, feels like it belongs in a hotel twice as expensive.

Rooms at the hotel are split into two main categories: club and classic. Which one you go for is really down to personal preference. We think the classic rooms – with their cream-coloured furniture and wooden floors – are a lot nicer than club rooms, which are done up with so much mahogany and green marble that they feel a bit dark.

A big chunk of the ground floor is taken up by the hotel’s restaurant and bar, which has a glass-covered veranda overlooking the square.

Prices here are very similar to those at the Elite Plaza Hotel, about 500 metres south – both are good choices.
