The Plaza is situated in a very central location in Gothenburg. The building is truly a grand old building. It dates from 1889 and considerable effort appears to have been taken to preserve the old fashioned charm
The service when checking in was swift and polite. Was given my room within a few minutes of arriving. The room was on the fourth floor and I was pleasantly surprised that it was fairly big. The decor was not entirely new and modern but it did fit the style of the hotel.
The room had a good sized desk,comfortable chairs as well as a very comfortable bed. There were plenty of lamps in the room but would have been nice to have a light switch controlling all lamps (now I had to walk around the room to turn on several lamps). There was no iron, ironing board or coffee/tea making facilities but there was a sign at the desk that one could ask the reception for it - did ask and it was promptly brought to my room. The hotel of course offers free wifi and a pretty good selection of TV channels.
The bathroom was fairly small but still sufficient. It had a tub (and there were bathrobes in the room).Seeing that it is a five star hotel I would have expected better quality shower gel, shampoo etc, now it was the standard stuff one finds in all Elite hotels.
The hotel has a nice pub (the same chain as in many other elite hotels, the Bishops Arms) in the basement and there is also a very nice restaurant. The spa and fitness centre are also above average.
Breakfast was not excellent but not as poor as some others have stated. The selection of bread, cold food etc was good. The hot food was limited but good quality. A bit annoying that they charge extra for additional things such as some variety's of coffee (like lattes etc) as well as omelette's, pancakes and such.
Service and quality wise I would not rate the hotel as a five star hotel but considering the price level it is not priced as a five star hotel either so to me it is really great for the price paid.
