Stayed here for 5 days in Oct 2011 in Room 1121 (standard room) during a business trip. From the moment I arrived, the staff has been helpful in assisting me to the room and also my enquiries around Gothenburg.
The room was decent sized and comfortable. The pillows were a bit too soft for me but the pillow on the sofa made up for that. Ironing facilities and hairdryer available in the room itself, saving the trouble of calling up housekeeping to borrow one. Electric jug available to make yourself a nice hot cup of coffee / tea in the cold weather, but ice machines are available in the corridor for a cold drink. You can connect to the internet via the LAN cable on the desk or through the wonderful free wi-fi provided (had no problems with the signal). You can also check your hotmail / yahoo / gmail via the TV screen but navigating with the wireless keyboard might be challenging.
Breakfast spread was good and the restaurant (Estrand) can accommodate quite a number of people although making it feel crowded, but food was always available. My one complain is that the food (especially the scrambled eggs and meatballs) were always too salty!! Out of the 5 breakfast I had there, only once did I find the eggs OK. While the breakfast spread was good, it was the same thing everyday and no rotation in their menu.
The hotel is about 2km (20 min walk) away from the city center. Location is good and convenient (tram stop and convenient store right outside the hotel) but if you really want to find something to do after coming back from work, it might be a challenge especially when most places closes by 6 or 7pm.
