“Very well located hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

Very well located hotel with nice view to the port and very nice and cozy skybar. The are is right now under construction so the place is a little bit noisy and messy but despite of that it is ok. The breakfast is really good and the city's mall is 1Km away from it.

Thank you Joaocslvfo for sharing your stay at Hotel Riverton with others!

The surrounding area of the hotel is currently undergoing a large and exciting transformation by the City of Gothenburg, the aim is to bring the City Centre closer to the water, this will include better transport links, exciting new shops and restaurants and leisure facilities by the water. Unfortunately this affects the immediate surroundings of the hotel. The project has several stages up until 2017 however the tramline which impacts directly outside our hotel will be finished summer 2015 which will improve the transport links to the rest of the city.

On behalf of the Riverton team, we hope to welcome you back to Hotel Riverton soon to see the exciting transformations taking place.

Kind Regards,
Philippa Hellberg

Have never complained about a hotel before. The room was tiny, clean but very basic, not your expected 4 stars. Surprised to see the comments below that say the hotel offered free parking.....we were 'offered' a parking permit of 245:- a night - which is higher that parking on the street. Not impressed at all. Breakfast was ok, wow factor - the tubes with pate placed on own plates (a little funny). Would not stay there again.

Dear Dana S,
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.

While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver a high standard of service for all of our guests.

We used to offer free parking outside of the hotel, however, unfortunately the construction taking place by Gothenburg council has temporarily made this out of use. Therefore, we offer a secure, CCTV monitored garage which is only accessible to hotel guests.

We do not advertise free parking on any website or in any marketing material and unfortunately it is very rare to find free parking in Gothenburg.

I am sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your room and I would appreciate if you could contact me with your details so we can look into the room you stayed in to see what we can do to improve for future guests. You can contact me via email on: philippa.hellberg@riverton.se

Best wishes,
Philippa Hellberg

The room premium juniorsvit was fantastic. Breakfast in the room was very nice. The food and the view from view restaurant was very good. We have a conference room for one day and it was very good. The lunch in the restaurant was very good.

Room Tip: The premium juniorsvit with view over the port is the best

Staying just one night at the Riverton, I did not have time to explore all hotel facilities. As mentioned by other reviewers, the road outside the hotel is undergoing construction work, making it a challenge to find the hotel. We ended up parking in the vicinity and walking with our luggage until we located the hotel. Upon request, the very service-minded reception staff pointed out that there was in fact a public park and pay area more or less directly in front of the hotel. The main shopping district is a short stroll away - sporting many large shops and cafés.
The room was large, modern and clean - very well equipped for business stays, and the morning breakfast was very nice.
Finally, the hotel restaurant is highly recommended for a superb view of Gothenburg port - not to be missed.

Dear Dorthe,

I am happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and were satisfied with our service.

The transformation project currently carried out by The City of Gothenburg, has had an impact on the public parking spaces directly outside of the hotel. So to help guests who travel by car, we offer secure parking onsite and opposite the hotel for a fee. This can be reserved by contacting us directly prior to arrival.
Thank you for sharing your review with others and on behalf of the Riverton team, we hope to welcome you back to Gothenburg very soon!

All staff are very friendly and accomodating. The room was really clean and cozy. Though we had difficulty in finding the hotel due to construction going on in the street nearby still it is very near tram station and town centre. The breakfast was also excellent. This is the very first time that I really enjoyed my stay without any hassle. Gothenburg City is so relaxing and I will definitely going back.
