“Excellent City Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Great hotel, right in the center of town and easy access to trams or exploring on foot.
The breakfasts are taken in the cafe below the hotel and it serves a great continental breakfast
Rooms are very comfortable and all the bathrooms have Elemis products to use

Room Tip: Have tore a few rooms and all are good

Decoration is simple with enough details to make it feel special. The rooms are a bit small but comfortable. And very clean. The caffee on the first floor serves a good breakfast buffet that is included in the price. Food was of very good quality. And it gives you a 25% discount any time of day. There are lots of shops, coffee shops and restaurants close by. This hotel is a great option if you visit the city. And on top of it all, the price was very reasonable.
It didn't get all the stars cause our room had a vibrating noise.

The Hotel is nice and in the citycenter.
The rooms are neat and tidy, the staff was very helpful: Emina was great, even though she was been working there for a few days she was extremely helpful.
Unfortunately the reception is not working 24 hrs, so advise you arrival and departure time (a private parking is available, but not 24/7). I left very early in the morning and I was offered to get a takeaway breakfast the night before.
There is no elevator, you have to take you baggage up on a (large) spiral staircase.
Despite that, it is a nice hotel

We stayed here during a weekend in a standard doubleroom. The hotel has a nice location close to the pedestrian areas in the center of Gothenburg. Its not close but fully possible to walk to the central train station. There are many nice restaurants and cafes in the area. The room was small (I wonder how small the small budget rooms are). It had free wifi, a safe, flat screen Tv with international channels. Bathroom had shower and was very clean. There is no kettel. There were water bottles in the room but they charge for them!! The atmosphere was cosy. Breakfast is served in the cafe on ground floor. I suppose we had expected much more of it since the cafe is popular daytime. There was no fresh bread and no pastries. It was obvious that the cook didnt know how to make scrambeld eggs. The bacon was alright and they had a good choice of muesli. The juice was more like coloured water. I suppose the breakfast is the least good thing with this hotel However the price you pay is very low compared to other hotels in this town and the room was very clean so its still a good deal. But Im not sure I would strongly recommend it.

Excellent location in the middle of Gothenburg. Well maintained and clean, friendly reception and good breakfast. The bedroom was fairly small, but overlooked the courtyard and we weren't disturbed by noise. A little too warm in the room so slept with the window open - might be a problem in middle of summer. A few off-street parking places - book if needed. Might be difficult to find alternative parking nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with window in to courtyard if you don't like street noise.

I have stayed at Vanilla off and on since they opened. Always a quiet and pleasant stay and the opportunity to have a nice breakfast or a bite to eat in their wonderful café. Love the location! The staff is great!

Room Tip: Unfortunately, there is no elevator so be prepared to carry your bags up the stairs.
