I must first point out that this hotel was provided for me by relatives.
This is a difficult review for me , probably because I prefer a smaller intimate hotel arrangement rather than this huge hotel complex of two towers and the 3rd is under construction.
First of all the negatives :-
Extremely difficult / non existent car parking - due to the erection of a 3rd Tower block.
The other two blocks are +/-20 floors high which makes the lift arrangements very difficult at breakfast time and at checkout (especially when you have luggage).
At breakfast you will be sharing facilities with another 300 + people which leads to crowding at drink dispensers.
Food in the restaurant I visited was very average and for a UK traveller I found it and the wine very expensive - though we must remember this is Scandinavia.
The rooms were very clean - functional ,well fitted-out but somehow uninviting and I most definitely did not like pillows which were approximately 35 cm2 (which is half the size of a normal pillow).
Thankfully there were positives - all levels of staff were pleasant and helpful.
Although parking is a definite problem - on the plus side the hotel(s) / towers, are situated on a very busy tram route / cross roads.
Wi-Fi is readily available and free.
Although as I've said the breakfast room will have 300 + people - the selection of food is excellent and there are no complaints from me.
Next time I visit Gothenburg I would examine if there is a smaller hotel arrangement which has received favourable reviews from Trip Adviser.
