Best Western Plus Hotel Waterfront Goteborg
Ranked #14 of 67 Hotels in Gothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I am a regular customer of Novotel Hotel. Like to stay in the Novotel Hotel and Apartment. It contains spacious living room, well equipped kitchen and a bedroom. Hotel rooms are quite good as well. Excellent breakfast to get you started and superb location in front of the Sea. Bus stop is just a walk away from where you can get buses to the city center and also to Volvo headquarters like Arendal/Torslanda. You can rent the bike from hotel and get a ferry just nearby to hotel. It is a great hotel and value for money.

My first visit to Sweden was a business trip to Gothenburg in the 1st week of December'13 - The hotel was conveniently located i.e. 15 minutes drive from the port area/office and provided good accessibility to the downtown via different options: Tram, Cab or Hired Cycle. The reception was manned by highly polite and welcoming staff who ensured a smooth check-in & check-put process. One of the staff members also assisted me in ordering a vegetarian pizza from a restaurant (language barriers) and billed it to my room since I did not have any lose Swedish Kroners (SEK). The rooms were spacious & clean with a good view of the harbor and the Älvsborgsbron bridge.

Only stayed for a night during a tour of Scandanavia but wished we could have stayed in comfort for a little while longer. This hotel is a little way from the city centre but is easily accessible by tram. If you are happy to stay a little out of town then you could save yourself a few krona here whilst retaining a high standard of hotel.

Helpful staff, lovely room, good breakfast, not too expensive. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: A view of the water may add a little to your stay

Hi There... we are a young couple with a girl 2 years old and stayed there 3 days in a Superior room 25m2 .
The Hotel is Big It has a spacious modern lobby, looks like renovated and very charm. Staff is friendly and informative.
The room was very good sized, light we a had view of the water & boats, beds were super comfortable, very clean, with a minibar, flatTV, security box and a big bathroom with a tub, many towels and beauty products to use free.
WiFi is available throughout the hotel, free but did not works inside of our room.

Breakfast was buffet with a very good quality and variety of products and the restaurant had 2 solarium eating rooms with really nice views of the harbour which is splendid.

Parking outside is free and safe and great because we watched the car by the room's window.

The city centre is four kilometres away, by car takes 10 min to Liseberg for example.
The hotel is a bit out of the way, but there is good transit close by though. the journey into town by tram or ferry are short and easyer to reach if you buy GO city card.
Take the Älvsnabben ferry from Lilla Bommen (near the opera house) or Rosenlund (near Järntorget), for example. The journey takes 20–25 minutes, and the boat runs once or twice each hour. From there it is about a five-minute walk to the hotel.
There's no reason to be closer. Hotel is great at all.

The city itself had a lot to offer, we started on 23/12 in Liseberg. It Is a wonderful park which was decorated fully of Xmas lights and music which truly makes this a nice family experience. A lot of activities to do, animals to see, Santa's house, food to eat and a long street where is Xmas market. We spent 5 hours inside the park.

Driving? : the Liseberg's parking costs 20 Swe kronor 1 hour. If you get a place behind Universeum, there the parking costs 10 Swe kronor 1 hour, but use to be full.

Universeum is Great as well, for us was a fun way to spend a couple hours on a rainy 25/12 afternoon. The aquarium and the undersea exhibit were excellent and the rainforest were pretty cool for my daughter. There is a ton of stuff to look in other areas like playrooms so don´t miss it! Reserve at least 3 hours for this attraction.

Göteborg's center is very nice between Xmas and New Year.The city is full of Lights and a great videoshow in Götaplatsen The square at the end of the main boulevard Kungsportsavenyn.
The city has an exciting mix of historic buildings and contemporary design to visit,The new and the old city hall, Kuggen at Lindholmen, The opera house in the harbour, Clarion hotel in the Drottningtorget (Queen Square), Slottsskogen city park etc.

Gothenburg must be one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen in Xmas season! Don´t miss it.

Room Tip: Superior room is really good.

This property is a renovated heritage building located a bit away - good transit close by though - from the city centre. The room was good sized, light - we a had view of the water & boats, comfortable, and bathroom had a tub.

The windows could be opened and one could hear the jostling of boats in their moorings but it didn't keep us from sleeping. I think rooms facing the water best as other side faced embankment & highway close by.

Breakfast was included in our rate and it was quite good - good selection, good quality. The 2 solarium eating rooms were really nice. Inside there were also long tables for groups.

A couple of concerns: It seemed as if anyone could walk into this hotel - very lax security. I know it's Sweden but still... And the spa/fitness area attendant wasn't wearing any uniform/name tag so at first not sure who one was talking to. The hot tub hours were too short as well.

Stayed: July 2013
