10/10 Exceptional

A perfect option for business and pleasure
Scandic The Mayor is one of those hotels that looks like a local institution. Its location is literally between the railway station and the town hall, in the heart of the city (most transport lines connect in front of it). It has a stately shape and the rooms did not disappoint: my wife and I got a superb corner room facing the town hall fountain, iconic tower and park, and the street. The room was wide, with enough space (apart from a wide double bed) for a padded reading corner, table with TV and working space, and a tea table with two stylish leather armchairs. Plus storage space. A large, practical bathroom complemented the room. Simple, Scandi furnishings, with dignified lines and sturdy materials. Free tea and coffee in the room. No minibar / fridge though (perhaps the only minus). Breakfast was a good spread including muesli/granola, sandwich ingredients, eggs, pastries and fruit, plus tea/ coffee/ juices (including self-press for oranges). The breakfast restaurant is a Michelin-starred establishment in the evening. They also have a paid-for mini-shop with toiletries and snacks. Perhaps toiletries not stuck to the wall would have added to the atmosphere, although I appreciated the quality and brand (FACE). Overall, we had an absolutely great stay, in a large dignified, well-designed room, and with good breakfast during a busy business trip. If I have the chance, I will surely return!
