The hotel is all modern, fresh and shiny. Our room looked good and had a nice view of the river even though it wasn't one of the premium rooms. Convenient location - very central but still quiet. The hotel parking was fully booked but there is public parking just across the road and we used it instead - it worked... More

The hotel is OK, rooms are clean and a good size but nothing special. Breakfast was mediocre and the area just around the hotel is a bit odd. But you're in the beautiful Haga area in about a 10 minute walk and the fish market is close by too. So the location is really quite good.There's a rooftop bar with... More

Second time for a one night stay for business. Chose the hotel because the first expericence was impeccable. Totally professional reception personnel guaranteed the experience from the start. Centrally located with the small minus of lacking a hotel garage for the car. A definite re-stay.

This hotel was all around amazing. Good quiet part of town, but close enough to walk to all the main sights and attractions. Great breakfasts every morning with good coffee. Comfortable, clean rooms with excellent rain showers. I will definitely stay there again if I'm in Gothenburg again.

Very nice hotel at a reasonable price in Goteborg. Very good room, excellent breakfast, very helpful staff. The only thing we missed was location, which is ok, but not excellent. The views from the SkyBar and Restaurant were also amazing! Great choice for staying in Goteborg even if you have to walk with your luggage to get to the hotel.

Hotel very convenient for main town sights. About 15 minute walk from main station easily done on foot except suitcases struggle on cobbled streets. Hotel is clean and well presented. Smaller rooms are still a good size. Breakfast excellent.

Couple of days on business, Sweden automotive if you couldn't guess! Clean and tidy place, friendly staff, good value for money and a comfy bed. Well appointed room with Nice views. Careful of the lifts as they take some working out and skybar opening hours are a little restrictive. Dim sum place around the corner is to die for.
