Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The sofa bed was very comfortable. And, according to my mother, the bed was very comfortable too. The receptionist Ola is amazing. Thanks to him, I'm giving it a 5/5 score, instead of 4/5. We stayed in one of the Superior-rooms (room 20), and the left side of the headboard (which was in fake leather, fortunately) was very scratched up (some of the material had peeled off, and they had covered this with the pillows stacked up against it, hiding it. They unfortunately only had toiletries with perfume in them, and I'm allergic. So, we couldn't thoroughly wash our hands. Because of that, I'd have given it 4/5 if it wasn't for how wonderful Ola was. The other rest of the staff was great as well. The coffee was great, they had both vegan milk and lactose free milk. My mom very much enjoyed the breakfast buffé (which was open between 7-9:30 am). You could order a glass of wine to bring to your room if you wanted to, and they also had food you could order (which was very expensive, they had maybe one or two vegetarian options, but no vegan options). There were lots of restaurants near the hotel (very pricey), and it was very close to a stop where you could ride a tram. It was right across a huge ice hockey arena, as well as being within walk distance from Gothenburg Avenue. The decor was extremely nice in the hotel, a bit rustic and they had amazing paintings on the walls (large, semi-realistic abstract portraits of famous people), they had a stunning chandelier in our room, the reception was very nice as well. They only had a few channels on the television (they didn't have Netflix, which lots of cheaper hotels do), but they did have free Wi-Fi, which worked surprisingly well. Overall, it was a great hotel. It's on the more expensive side of a more budget-friendly hotel. I would definitely return.

Great Hotel with a cosy feeling in the center of Gothenburg. A big plus for the spacious family room, modern design, clean bathroom and super comfy beds (twin bed, bed sofa and extra bed). Families of 5, this is definitely for you! Fresh and nice breakfast, small scale but all you need for a great start of the day. Pleasant and welcoming staff. Only minus is the small elevator.

Good location and friendly staff. Small (single) room, but since I only needed a place to sleep this was quite sufficient for my needs. If I need a hotel room on Gothenburg again I’ll definitely consider Hotell Onyxen as a possible accomodation.

This hotel has charming features: a cozy breakfast area, coffee all day, boutique style. The staff was extremely pleasant, and the room was clean and spacious. On the down side, even though I had a room facing the back, it was surprisingly noisy due to thin walls and echoing stairwells and hallway, which made for very disrupted sleep. (Perhaps management might consider carpeting in the stairs and noise mitigation of doors?) I found the mattress too soft for comfort, and the bathroom quite basic.

Hi Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we are glad you enjoyed the celanliness and spaciousness of the room as well as our breakfast are and staff! We do have plans to reduce the noise through several measures, more carpeting and curtains are a few of these measures that are planned to be implemented in the near future.

It's and old building, and you can see that in many things. The hotel is, for a better word, a bit quirky. I had a single room, so it was quite small. The room was very clean, good bed and fresly renovated clean bathroom - nothing to complain in the room. The street outside is busy, but the windows are also quite good. I don't think there is air-con, you have to open the window a bit for fresh air. Might be more of an issue in summer. Breakfast did not have a huge selection of everything, but all they had was high quality and tasty. The hotel staff was also kind and polite. Parking is not perfect, they want to park you car themselves, as they double-park. This also leads to bit of waittime when you want your car.

Lovely staff, friendly and helpful, rooms were nice and modern, breakfast great! Mattress comfy. Not too far off the centre, tram station literally 2 minutes opposite the hotel. Parking in court yard VERY tight! Handy to have 7-11 just round the corner.

Onyxen is a hidden Pearl in Gothenburg. About 35-40 rooms, located 100-350 metres from Scandinavium, Ullevi, Liseberg and Avenyn (sports, concerts, amusement park and shopping lane). The staff is great and breakfast buffet is top notch. My favourite hotel in Gothenburg

Five of us stayed at Hotell Onyxen for a night. We liked the hotel and would recommend it if you would visit Gothenburg. Very good: Great location. Walking distance to Liseberg and Scandinavium. Breakfast had good selection. yogurt, cornflakes, breads, different kinds of ham, fruits, etc. There were three hot dishes as well. Scrambled egg, mushroom, and bacon. Staff were friendly and helpful. Could be better: Single elevator that can fit in just two people. We had to walk up to the fifth floor. Parking was not included but it was close by. Public parking lot and paid the parking fee hourly.

Hi SleepyPinga :) Thank you for staying with us! We're glad that you had such a nice time here and enjoyed our breakfast and found plenty of options that suited you. Yes, unfortunately our elevator is a bit small but since we are housed in a older building there is not much we can do to enlarge it unfortunatel (and believe me, we've tried :) ). Parking is also a bit limited at times (again due to the nature of the buidling) but as you said there are several suitable options just nearby if you arrive by car. Thanks again and warm welcome back!
