“Very good on value, location and customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

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.

Restaurant Riverton Sky View was excellent, fantastic food and good service, plus a great view. Clean and comfortable room. The location was pretty good, walking distance from central station and shopping areas. Overall a very good experience.

This is a good hotel very clean and the views from the restaurant were stunning, The location was pretty good just a short walk to the town centre but for me it was its location close to the Stena Ferry terminal that was most important only 5 mins walk. The staff were very helpful indeed and offered really good practical advice on getting around Gothenburg.

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing the river much better view

We spent with friends a very pleasant weekend at hotel Riverton. The room was spotless clean, spacious and in overall well maintained and in good condition. We never heard any sound from neighboring rooms. The beds were very comfortable with quality bed linen. Very positive feature was the wide screed flat TV with plenty of working satellite channels. The standard of cleaning in the room was simply astounding.

Hotel breakfast was ample and of good quality. As extras to the normal hotel breakfast, special coffees were available, good selection of fruit. From the more exotic side were local herring and C vitamin tablets. We wined and dined upstairs in the restaurant and sky bar and enjoyed the great food and views to the river. If one has to find something negative, the lobby of the hotel hardly is very cosy with its minimal decoration and furniture.

Staff were all very friendly and attentive and we got all the help and attention that we needed.

The hotel location is very good with easy access everywhere. Public transportation may not be the strongest point here, but from the bus stop some 150 m away it was possible to reach the centre. Also the stop of the river ferry Älvsnabben was very close to the hotel: a sightseeing cruise available for the price of local bus ticket!

Room Tip: At least superior rooms are to be recommended. Some of the rooms do not have a view at all from wind...

Dear Isidorus,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Hotel Riverton. I am delighted to read you had a pleasant stay with us and that you enjoyed our services on offer.
As you mentioned, we have a bus stop nearby with buses just three stops away from the Central Station.

The city centre is divided into different areas, the historic district Haga bustling with boutiques and cafés plus the popular areas and tourist attractions including Linné, Kungsgatan, Skansen Krona, and Gothenburg Canals are all within 10 minutes’ walk of the hotel.

In addition there is a tram hub called Järntorget, 5 minutes’ walk away from the hotel with trams connecting to all major parts of Gothenburg.

We are also currently transforming the lobby area to make it a bit more welcoming and a space where you can sit down and relax while enjoying a beverage or reading a newspaper. These changes will be ready to be enjoyed by guests just after the summer.

I will pass on your lovely feedback to the different departments within the hotel and on behalf of the Riverton team; we hope to welcome you back to Gothenburg very soon!

All the best,
Philippa Hellberg

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
