“Nice hotel, expensive but found it difficult to sleep”
Reviewed 31 August 2011

Nice modern hotel with friendly staff. Heaven restaurant and bar on the top floor has a great view over the city and into the distance.

Great that they have fast free Internet and Wifi all over.

Found the room and reserved parking expensive compared to other hotels I've stayed in on my travels.

Bed was too soft, small and I had a feather pillow. Heard street sounds even on the 16th floor. Didn't sleep very well.

Whilst the restaurant had a reasonable priced menu and good froendly service we found that the time between courses was rather too long and resulted in a late evening meal.

I think I would try a different hotel if I'm visiting again.

Great hotel almost inside the amusement park Liseberg (cross the street and you're there). Nice rooms, good service, and a pretty good restaurant at the top of the hotel. Great view! Perfect if you spend a lot of time inside Liseberg, a little more hassle if you spend most of the time in the central area with Avenyn and Nordstan shopping centre, as you Gothenburg is not an easy town driving your own car. Take a cab or the trams.

I have stayed here several times often with my kids which is great since the amusement park Liserberg is just across the street. Later when I travelled with my husband I love the views and the top floor restaurant (you have to try their shrimp sandwich)
The rooms are very large and nicely decorated with views over Liseberg or the town. I always stay in Sky Executive because they are high up in the building and you have that wonderful VIP-breakfast in the topfloor restaurant Heaven 23 overlooking Gothenburg.

Our family really enjoyed this hotel. It was well situated in walking distance to downtown and only a few steps away from Liseberg and Universum .The front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful.
We came early hoping for an early check in, but the room wasnt ready before 16.00 local time. They stored our luggage while we enjoyed ourself at Liseberg the whole day.

Room was nice and clean. Had a great view over the amusement park Liseberg. Splendid! Quiet and comfort room.

The breakfast buffet had lots of options and was delicious. An especially good hotel for families.

Good parking options.

P.s We recieved a mail within couple of days.The hotelsecurity manager, Inger Hansson, apologized for the waiting time. Great service!

Thanks.

I spent a couple of nights here and it was well worth the money as my wife and I had a very enjoyable stay, despite several thousand excited teenagers staying in the hotel and surrounding area taking part in the Gothia Football World Cup 2011.

Modern, the Towers stood out as the tallest building, so was easy for us to find just off the motorway as we were driving there. Parking costs extra but is well managed. A bus station is nearby with very reliable trams and buses.

Reception staff were very welcoming, professional and were fluent in English. We stayed on the 7th floor having been offered the 21st - the view wasn't as good (but still good), but the quick lifts did struggle to ferry a hotel full of guests quickly so a lower floor helped ensure we didn't waste too much time in lobby halls.

Our room was n't the biggest but was of a high standard and with en-suite was relaxing and clean, with internet access. We had breakfast delivered to our room - this arrived on the dot and was excellent. Order enough and you'll have your lunch too. Order too much and you can store some in the mni-fridge.

Coffee and a 'free' mexican buffet were provided in the ground floor bar and restaurant.

It was disappointing nor to eat in the 23rd floor restaurant as we hadn't booked, although the hotel literature didn't suggest this was necessary. Teenagers running around the corridors at 1-2am briefly woke us, but otherwise our stay was quiet and relaxed.

I'd stay again in this lovely welcoming hotel and city.

Room Tip: if you want a great view of Gothenberg go for the higher floors, but the lower ones for quick and ea...

We stayed here one night travelling through Gothenburg. The location is really great and the view overlooking the Liseberg amusement park is wonderful.

The rooms were great, but breakfast service was very crowded and disorganized. But all in all, we'll be back:)

The location of this hotel cannot be faulted with easy access to the city & very close to the Lisberg. I usually stay here when I am in Gothenburg on business as facilities are good, rooms, whilst a bit small are more than adequate. Bathroom in room was a bit "tired" and pillows could be better, but at least you can make a cup of tea or coffee in your room. Excellent extensive buffet breakfast. Lifts can be slow. Not often you find a hotel which caters well for families & business travel in the same location.
