Just like the roller coaster of the nearby amusement park. Liseberg, this hotel has its ups and downs. I would consider this as a lower medium tourist class. Business people should consider another hotel. Being there in the middle of July, when many people are on holiday, it was overcrowded with “30-40 age something” with small children as they stay free in parents room.
It was pretty good sleeping quality with room on 7th floor facing the Ullevi old football stadium and a small backyard. 3 glass windows. Ordinary bed quality. Approximately size 20 m2 of room. Oak parquet floor. Nice bathroom with white tiles. Service minded personnel. No problems whatsoever with cleaning of rooms. 26 inch flat TV screen with very limited selection of international channels. Free-WiFi. Good breakfast with the ordinary stuff as well as a few warm and cold extras.
There is a small spa –area at the top of the hotel that we did not try, but could be nice when having aching feet after a day out on the town. Excellent location with just a few hundred meters to central station and city area with shopping, restaurants and all other services as banks, pharmacy and so on. Gothenburg is not a big city in terms of the core city area.
Dull white painted walls. Simple bed side tables and office desk. Mouldings and ledges need to be renovated (as in almost all hotels that I visited in the past couple of years). Very strange adjustable shower door that was too short, with the consequence of water almost all over the shower room. Shower only, no tub.
We had a family room with an inferior sofa bed. This was not properly mentioned at their web-site when booking. Just that “3 beds had been booked”. Watch out for this when booking to make sure what has been booked or if 3 normal beds are bookable at all.
The main disadvantage of this hotel is the terrible bar/breakfast/restaurant area. The breakfast room is more or less a “high school canteen look-alike”. Terrible brown/greenish chairs and tables, and an even more terrible wall to wall carpet with probably a couple of tons of orange juice and jam soaked in over the years.
If you want to have a rather silent or cozy morning breakfast in July, forget it. Order room service, stay elsewhere or wait until they have renovated or rebuilt the bar/restaurant/breakfast area. If you do not care of this, for many travelers, minor problem, it’s a serious option for a tourist at about 150 Euros a night, which we paid for one adult and two teenagers. High priced? Not necessarily, as Sweden is a high cost country.
