I stayed a few nights at the Scandic Billingen and it overall I had a fine stay. The convenience of being really close to the train station was a big plus, and the breakfast buffet was quite good, as well as the large dining area off the lobby. As for the rooms, they are barely a step above a college...

This was very much a budget hotel with a non-budget price. The rooms are small, no kettle/coffee, no room service, no bathtub, and uncomfortable old towels. Bed was OK, but not great. Breakfast buffet was adequate, but coffee machine wasn't working. Probably it's upside is location, right by the station.

This Scandic Hotel is located very central in the town of Skövde so it is very accessable from the train station. We went by car and found a free parking area for the weekend not far from the hotel (a bit north). It is an old building but it is delicately renovated so the athmosphere is intact. The room we...

The hotel is very well situated but that is what has to offer. Very small room and nothing above standard results in a lousy value for money qouta. Too bad as it has a great potential, though not properly taken care of.

Stayed here for one night while on business in Skövde. The hotel is very centrally located and the breakfast buffet is excellent. The room is very basic - clean, but basic. Nothing fancy or exceptional but serves its purpose well. The staff at chekin/checkout were very friendly as well.

If we based our rating on our first night it would have been much lower, but our subsequent nights were good. So overall, this is an elegant hotel from the outside, and appeared to be undergoing some refurbishment as there was scaffolding outside. They have done a good job in turning the inside into a modern hotel and it was...

We stayed at this hotel in 2010 and hardly recognized it this time. It still looks old and charming on the outside. Inside, it has been re-decorated to a minimalist Scandinavian look. We had breakfast buffet in 2010 in the ballroom. It was elegant and one of the nicest buffets that I have seen. Now, the breakfast is in the...

Scandic Billingen offers a great location, but the hotel interior has be so remodeled à la Scandic that it has lost all of it's yesterday charm. The lobby is small, the bar uninviting and there is no sense of welcome. Yes, everything has been painted white, the rooms are being updated, the new beds are comfortable and the shower water...

The location is great next to the train station. The hotel exterior is beautiful. The decor on the inside is pretty incognito and the same goes with the hotel restaurant. What makes this hotel different from many others is that it's housed in a very old building. Most hotels look the same these days (you've seen one you've seen them...
