“Very nice Hotel in Gothenburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

I have stayed here a lot, both in business and pleasure. The Hotel is one of the oldest with nice old style furniture. The bathrooms are, in all rooms I have stayed in, renovated and fresh. The breakfeast at Eggers are one of the best I have tasted in Sweden. Especially the coffee :-) I have also eaten dinner in the restaurant a couple of times and it has been very very tasteful. The only bad things is that there is no minibar, waterheater or coffeemaker in the rooms, but there is free coffee in the lobby. Also the TV:s are so old that I never bother to turn them on.

The place has seen better days, but the rooms are adequate and the charm is still in the walls. Receptionist is very professional. I just love having a slow breakfast here in the lovely dining room on a Tuesday morning. Recommended.

We stayed here for one night, stopping off on a train journey from Copenhagen to Oslo, so the location, right outside the main railway station was ideal.

The hotel is clearly an old building, probably as old as the station itself, standing alone in the square, surrounded by the railway station, the tram terminus and a busy road. First impressions on entering reception were that the interior is as dated as the building, and we were not wrong! The Receptionist, however, was very helpful.

We were give a room on the first floor, overlooking the tram terminus, and with a small balcony with a small table and two chairs. Rather ominously by the bed were two sets of earplugs! There is no air conditioning, so the only way to cool the room is by opening the windows or balcony doors, but this comes at a price as the noisy trams continue until midnight and start early in the morning. Wifi is available within the hotel but as soon as you move onto the balcony the signal becomes very poor.

The standalone bath is okay, but without a screen or shower curtain the bathroom floods easily when taking a shower. There are no drinks in the room but a small area in Reception where flasks of coffee and water can be found (but I don't know how hot or fresh these are, as we have a travel kettle).

The restaurant area is quite dark and dismal, with a central bar which also serves as the breakfast buffet. There is, however, an outdoor seating area overlooking the square. The buffet breakfast was fine.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to the station then this is fine, but not somewhere you would wish to be for a prolonged stay.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the square and tram terminus are noisy, so ask for an inside room if a good night...

Lovely spacious hotel, of historical value. It looks rather old fashioned, but welcoming and the rooms are at half the price one would pay at the Radisson Blue across the square. Very friendly and helpful Swedish staff on reception, excellent breakfast, perfect location close to the railway station, a nice park, the harbour, canals and lots of restaurants and shopping malls.

They do an "ok" job but the old claw foot tub with only a hand-held shower wand for me was just unacceptable. A very old hotel but not as modernized as it should be. Large rooms. Great location. Staff and breakfast was fine. Pricing is good.

I booked this hotel for two nights because of its location and history. Big mistake. It was extremely expensive, but unfortunately, I did not have time to shop around and had a colleague staying there. First the positives. The hotel has lots of characters, and I was delighted by the huge room, antique furniture and persian rugs. While a bit dated, it did not bother me as the character more than made up for it. Until it was time to go to sleep. Despite being on the higher floor, the noise from the people, the trams and the street kept on going until 2 in the morning. I also think there must have been road works as the noise sounded like a pneumatic hammer. I finally fell asleep at around 2am, and got four full hours, until the traffic and noises started up again at 6am. Sound proofing windows these days is an easy task. When complaining, the manager used the excuse that the hotel is in a listed building. Absolute rubbish, proper insulation and sound proofing can be done even in listed buildings. The following night, got moved to an interior room. Much smaller, and not as nice, and in dire need of a makeover. But at least, it was quiet. Despite the lower standard of the room, no refunds or rebates. The manager says they do not differentiate between the rooms! This is not the service I would expect towards a diamond best western card holder. There are lots of hotels around this one, if you have the time, do a quick search and yourself a favour (If you want to sleep, that is).

Room Tip: If you get a room facing the inside, it will be small and dark but at least, you get some sleep as i...

Stayed one night on a business trip, looked for at hotel close by the train/bus station as I was arriving late and leaving very early for the airport. The hotel was a last minute booking, so I had no expectations but the location.

My cup of tea is the more modern, contemporary scandinavian style, but as the last reviewer wrote - the cigarette smell in the elevator - which has carpented walls - somewhat had a charm. Since I just barely checked in and out (and slept a couple of hours in between - in a comfortable bed) - I don´t have a deeper analysis to present, but my impression is that it is a bit overprised, compared to the finish here and there (and to a nearby hotel I stayed in on my way home). For instanse, the wooden floor in the room had lot of wear and tear, the TV-set was old and awfull, and when I looked at the small bathtub (sitting style, I think), I saw cracks. I got an explanation for that the following morning, as the shower is all old-style-heavy-metall, but where you attach it is definetly not - 70s-plastic-fantastic and not fitting at all. So it fell down - and I understood the cracks.

I think this hotell suits people that wants just this style, and the location by the train/bus-station. But there are other hotels whitin 1 minute walk for a better price.
