The Scandic Sergel Plaza is a 403-room, mid-range chain hotel, centrally located just off Sergels Torg, the most central public square in downtown Stockholm. The Scandic is rather dated in its design, and could benefit from a refresh; the furnishings in the rooms look especially tired. The hotel's bar and restaurant, however, feel more vibrant and are especially popular with locals and guests alike. One of the hotel's major advantages is its location: a leisurely 10-minute walk from Gamla Stan, the old town, and a five-minute walk from T-Centralen, the main metro station that connects to all parts of Stockholm. Scandic Sergel Plaza is popular with families -- for its colorful kids' club and baby strollers that can be rented by the day -- and business travelers -- for its central location, numerous meeting rooms, and banquet hall. The Scandic Hotel Grand Central, a ten-minute walk away, is the hotel's sister property, and has a funkier vibe, quirkier decor, and a sauna, but also generally has higher rates.
