Solid 3 star for four star price. Set next to a power generation plant on the river, this institutional themed ex-student accommodation is middling with few exceptions. The bar is surprisingly nice, the heated mirrors and quality hand soaps were highlights among a dull, dull, dull hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights and was very impressed with the quality of this hotel. Was able to check in earlier than the advertised time, which was an immediate bonus. The room was modern and comfortable, with a well laid out bathroom. Breakfast was excellent - I knew Sweden was going to be more expensive to eat/drink than many other places,...

Riverton is centrally located with tons of restaurants, bars, and shops in walking distance. Public parking is available across the street. Facilities are in good shape and service is very good. Breakfast is really good in comparison to what I experienced before in Gothenburg.

Conveniently located hotel with good breakfast and good standard in the rooms. The rooms have been renovated lately and are comfortable. Breakfast offers good variety. Trams passing outside, but still very quiet in the rooms. Small spa area with jacuzzi and sauna.

Excellent location by the riverside and very near to the shopping districts as well as bus and tram stations. The rooms were nice and cozy but slightly small. Very well maintained. Also great breakfast buffet. However wish they provided check in all through the day as it becomes very difficult for international travelers arriving early in the morning.
