Hotel Riverton
Ranked #28 of 67 Hotels in Gothenburg
Reviewed 28 October 2013

A super cozy hotel situated at Gothenburg harbor. Close to the Stena Line terminal if you would like to take a trip by boat to Frederikshavn / Denmark or to Kiel / Germany. Walking distance to the town center where you can shop in North Town, Arcade, NK, to name a few. There is a wide selection of restaurants if you e tempted to eat. There is much to see and experience in Gothenburg.

Thank you for the excellent description of Hotel Riverton's enviroment. If you haven't already tried this, I recommend you to take the hotel elevator to the upper floor where you find our restaurant Riverton View with a breathtaking view of the harbour.

Have a great fall and welcome back!

Kind regards

I have stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in beginning of October. During this period, I fall sick and have to remain in hotel room for almost a week. The staffs took good care of me by ensuring my needs are well taken care of. The front desk staffs even took the effort to come to my room and check my condition. I am quite grateful and feel great of their service.

In terms of room, it is nice and clean. The breakfast is fantastic with many choices.
The only concern is the location is not near major shopping area but it is still within walking distance.

Room Tip: Nice, clean and quiet room

I've been several time in Gobeborg in the past, but never in this hotel; I visited it for a company conference; The first look was not that good because the position, even if convenient to reach most of the city attractiveness, is not very nice; during my visit there were also work in progress in the roads nearby.
Entering in the hotel the impression is better; I saw some criticisms from other writers about the front desk people but I did not notice any problems and I should thus emphasize the warmer courtesy of the restaurant staff.
The interior decorations are typically Scandinavian (I think that who designed the bathroom never had a shower in his life: not enough room due to the stiffness of the shower hose, no place to put the soap)
I found the hotel pretty clean, the breakfast fair and outstanding service and food at the restaurants with a special mention to the sky restaurant located on upper floor.
So good stay with last suggestion of building a gym soon; I missed it. Thanks

Good hotel, nice rooms, although not very big. Well equiped and clean. Free wifi worked good. The beds where good and the window shutter means you can really block out the outside.
The view from the top floor restaurant is amazing. The staff is friendly and ever helpfull. They provided some restaurant possibilities in the area. In the neighbourhood there are shops and plenty of restaurants. Breakfast was ok, with plenty of choice although rather basic.

We booked one of the Premium Queen rooms, and they feel very modern and luxurious. Got a room with a view of the harbour, wich we had wished for.
Location is really very close to the shopping area and city center, but hte hotel has its back to the city, facing the harbour.
We'll definetly come back again - a perfect weekend get-away from kids and everyday life. Next time we'll try and stay longer, so we can try out the SPA section.

Room Tip: Recommend the upper floors (at a higher price range) for both the view and they're more quiet.

This hotel had a very modern feel to it and the rooms were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rates were very reasonable compared to comparable hotels in Gothenburg. The only downside to this hotel was that it's location was not great but you can walk to the train station and a lot of restaurants in about 20 minutes. The bar and restaurant were on the top floor with a good view of the river and city.
