“Good location and great if you have a head for heights”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

I've stayed here a couple of times recently for business trips. It is a big hotel (and getting bigger) and can feel rather impersonal because of that. Staff were friendly and helpful when needed.
Breakfast is good but on one day when there must have been something on in the conference centre it was very busy early on.
There is a great gloass elevator overlooking the amusement park, and if you have a head for heights check out the glass floor on the walkway on the 20th floor. The Heaven 23 bar is also worth a visit for views over the city. Although not so close to the main city centre, it is well located with some bars and restaurants within a short walk

Regularly stay here on business, it's a smooth operation for a very big hotel, expanding to be even bigger (not that the building works disturbed me). If you come for a convention at Svenska Mässan you can't go wrong staying here. Walking distance to Avenyn; crammed with bars, shops and culture (just watch out for the trams!). Staff very happy to give directions. Excellent amusement park Liseberg is just across the road, as well as a family friendly science museum. Airport buses to Landvetter stop pretty much outside. Pharmacy (Apoteket), good supermarket (ICA) and state run liquor store (Systembolaget) very close walking distance, again, ask the staff for directions.
Not much character to the decor, but comfortable and clean. Breakfast buffet very good, don't miss out on the liver paté. Friendly staff without being overbearing.

Room Tip: I like to stay in the West tower, floors 20+, as you get to have breakfast in the top floor restaura...

Used once for a bisiness trip. Its not the closest to the city center but there is an easy access thru Tran number 5 that stops just in front of the hotel. It's the best in Gothembug whe it come to comfort, Don't lose the opportunity to go to the 23th floor and take a shrimp burger. It is delicious and you have an amazing 360 degree view of the city. I'd lived in Gothemburg arround 2010-2011 and use to got up there on Haven 23 just because of the view.

Here for a Conference meeting, for three nights.
POSITIVE: the staff makes an effort to cheer up this large, dispersed place. Breakfast and cathering were fully satisfactory. Price is reasonable considering that Gothenburg is more expensive than Swedish average. Very nice 23rd floor bar and restaurant. Definitely worth a visit.
NEGATIVE: rooms' furnitures could fit in a 3 stars of average EU standards. Large rooms facing the elevator have 2 double beds and large bathroom, with view on the Liseberg amusement park. Other double rooms are too tiny to be comfortable. They attempted making this whole place homy and comfortable by using soft lights -the result is that you can't have any strong light in your room -except the bathroom (actually quite disturbing). The price for Laundry service is outrageous (15€ for a shirt). Amenities in the bath are minimum. No hair dryer. Next room noise is an issue.
The venue for the exhibition is a positive asset. They tried to decorate several corridors with caprets and colorful furnitures, but still large part of your walks will be like in the hangar of an Airport.
CONCLUSION: come here if you have to go toa Conference, to the Stadium or to the amusement park. Otherwise there is no point of inflicting yourself this big walks place with cheap looking rooms. The blame must be on the architect, not on the staff (positive spirit was shown in all compartments)

Room Tip: Rooms facing elevators are large an with the best view. But you may hear the bell of the elevators.

Lobby and restaurants could fool you, the standard romms in the West Tower have the standard and the charme of a hostel. Tiny, cheap, with a bathroom like in a hospital. You hear the music of the neighbour's TV, every step of the neighbour above (wood floors) and the entire room and bed shake when your neighbor's door slams close.
Lunch at the West Coast Restaurant was excellent though. The cod totally fresh and very tasty. This is the only reason for my 3* rating. It would have only been 2 otherwise. The breakfast restaurant has again the same feel of hostel.
I stayed for a Convetion. If I have the choice, I will not stay there again.

Good hotel with everything you need... The location can't be better, the rooms are clean, the hotel staff is friendly and they make you feel very welcomed. The restaurant at 23ed floor is simply fabulous with stunning view over the whole city and beyond.

Hotel was pretty good, rooms and breakfast were ok. I had several problems with the reservation, though. I made my reservation via email, but they had bad communication problems. After staying for the first of our two nights I got an email that I had not paid for the first night and should contact the hotel immediately. They had my credit card number and the whole bill was supposed to be paid the day we leave, no in the middle of the stay!
Well, mistakes happen and I understand it, but a simple "Sorry" would be the right way to deal with a customer.
