Reviewed 31 July 2012 via mobile

Spar Hotel Gårda is in a perfect location in the heart of Gothenburg: just a 10-15 minute from Göteborg Central Station, the two soccer stadiums (Ullevi & Gamla Ullevi), and Trädgårdsföreningen (where we saw The Beach Boys on their 50th Anniversary tour).

Our room was big, clean & comfortable with hip Scandinavian furniture, a new flatscreen TV, a fantastic large shower and free wifi. The traffic noise from the nearby highway was the only drawback.

The included buffet breakfast was really great: scrambled eggs & make-your-own-waffles were a nice surprise as was the 12 Noon ending time! My only complaint about the breakfast was that the staff seemed to e in a hurry to close it down long before noon. We were there at 11:15am and twice had to ask them to please bring back food items they had already taken away.

Nevertheless, we will absolutely stay there again next time we are in Gothenburg!

This hotel is not far from the centre of town (use the number 1 tram). Not much in the local area as its a little industrial but not what we were after so thats great.

We used BA miles to book this and therefore great value for money. Important thing is it was clean and safe and even though we were on the side that had the motorway, the triple glazing meant we couldn't hear a thing

We stayed in the hotel as a group. The rooms are adequate but VERY small. One side of the hotel is reight next to the freeway so opening windows is not an option due to the noise.
The breakfast was fine with a good selection. The pub on the groundfloor is a nice place to spend time after a hectic day but the service hours are limited as far as something to eat.
The staff at reception was very helpful and always ready to assist.
Long walk to the nearest tram stop.
Reasonably good value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the freeway-side of the hotel.

Excellent hotel with an amazing breakfast buffet. The rooms were small, but very clean. Staff was very helpful and the location was great, only a few stops on the tram and you were in the middle of the city. Great place to stay, especially for those on a budget. Did I mention how great the breakfast was?

Good place to stay in Gothenburg. As others have said very close to the tram stop which gets you into town in 5 minutes if you dont fansy the 15 to 20 minute stroll. Terrific breakfast.

If you'r after luxury, or a great location, then read no further. However, if, like us, you will be on a budget in an expensive city, then the Spar Hotel Garda will offer a few nights good accommodation.
From the station it is only a few tram stops (there were confusing works on the line and we used Svingeln then walked the rest - download a map!) About 20 minutes to/from the central station. Buy tickets from tobacconists/newsagents - and preloaded day tickets are the best value.
The hotel exterior may well put you off - but once inside it's fine. Rooms are basic but clean and well equipped, There is a friendly bar, a free internet kiosk, and a splendid breakfast.
Although a little out from the centre, we feel that this hotel offered good value. It is certainly good for a short stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from the motorway

This hotel is only three bus stops from the train station and the center city attractions, but it is not immediately visible from the closest bus stop. Having a map helps. The front of the hotel overlooks a raised, busy highway. We requested and received a room at the back of the hotel and was spared the hum of the traffic noise.

The hotel room was aging and contained nothing special but it sufficed for a short stay. I compare it to an aging Holiday Inn in the U.S. The price was the attaction. The breakfast buffet was adequate.

Room Tip: Request a room at the rear of the hotel.
