Reviewed 9 December 2009

my room was quite big, i loved it ..like a small appartment
however, the hotel looks very good and new outside and in the reception area, but the rooms were probably not refurbished since the '80s.
breakfast was very good and so was all the cattering for the conference i was part of
however, this is a cold place, and i'm talking about temperature. i turned on the heating to the max level and it still wasn't warm so i slept using both blankets.
i was very happy when i discovered that my bath-tub had some kind of a jacuzzi, but also discovered that if turned on the system was leaking and making a horrible noise.
the second day of my stay i had a late morning but it was impossible to sleep late because of some works that were conducted during the day.
very good location and very kind staff.

After having read other comments do I agree that the hotel does look better from the outside and that rooms are small! But good value for money on shorter business trips since what you need then is an OK bed, a shover, a power outlet to charge the mobile/PC and a TV set. That is exactly what you get and nothing else. I traveled single so the sparse furniture of the room was enough for me. Same room size for two is possible (there is a foldable bed) but I would not recomend that.
Transportation (tram) close by.

I was travelling to Gothenburg for the weekend with a friend and booked this hotel 3 weeks in advance at a good rate. The hotel did not disappoint, it wasn't that great but the price made up for everything. For starters, the hotel looked brand new on the outside and in the reception area but the room was kind of small with old furniture and we could not even open the windows for fresh air. The TV was perched on top and we could only watch TV by lying down on our beds.

Despite the unimpressive room furniture, it was overall a pleasant stay. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful in giving directions and the hotel breakfast was excellent. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. There was a sauna and jacuzzi but we did not have time to visit. Wireless internet is available at no additional cost. I think there is a garage outside for guests who are driving.

The hotel is located somewhat 1km from the city centre, very near the Liseberg Amusement Park (good if you have kids). If you are travelling by public transport, tram no. 6 (outside Scandinavium) takes you directly to the city centre. It is conveniently located near the Avenyn area and the Flybussen stop to Landvetter Airport is just a 5 min walk away.

Overall, I had a good experience with this hotel and would recommend it to those who are here for short stays.

Usually stay at Gothia but got a good rate at Opalen. Asked to change rooms because the one we got was not cleaned well. There were stains on the walls, the bed skirt had lot of stains on it. The bathroom was not great and this was one of the renovated rooms!This is not what we expect from a 3 star Swedish hotel. We did like the location and the breakfast.

Stayed in the Opalen over new years, found it a great hotel, with very friendly staff, rooms very comfortable and overall a great stay. Breakfast is excellent with a great choice, bar and bartender where great and the missus loved the jacuzzi. One draw back is the location but deffinetly not a problem about a 20minute walk to centre of town or 5 minute tram ride that leaves from just across the road from the hotel. Found Goteborg to be a very friendly place, but quite considering it was new years. if you do find yourself there over new years the fire works at the harbour are excellent and theres a great irish pub you should at least have a drink in. Other than that another great stay at the scandic chain and will continue to use them when in the nordic regions

Paid around £30 a night or 300SEK bed and breakfast. Room was clean and had everything you would need.

Breakfast was great and had a large selction from fresh fruit, bread and cooked breakfast.

There is also a jacuzzi and sauna.

Very good standard for what we paid, would highly recommend, great location also.
