The Hotel Riverton in Gothenburg is Very good on value for money, location and customer service. Hotel rooms and breakfast are first class, Location of hotel is close to city centre. We paid about 2360 Kroner (£236stg) for a double room with breakfast for 3 nights. Note that a 3 day Gothenburg public transport ticket is about 150 Kroner which is about £15 and it covers you for all trams, buses and ferries out to the islands. Getting from Gothenburg city airport to city centre involves a walk from outside of airport building of about 500m to get the bus to take you to the tram -if you take bus from directly outside airport door it will cost more as its a different service. Do NOT miss the free City visits such as the big park with animals incl. seals, penguins and moose, also the viewpoint which overlooks the city near the old town area. The islands are a great visit and the ferries are free with the ticket above. For Gothenburg, note that prices of food, beer, spirits and wine esp. when eating out (or in bars/pubs) can be TWICE the price of the UK and Ireland. Note that drink is much cheaper in off licences but these are closed on Sundays and may shut as early as 3pm on Saturdays. But you can get beer in supermarkets (not wines and spirits). Some roadworks going on outside Hotel until mid summer 2014 but it does not affect your stay. Staff are very friendly and very helpful.
