This is a quite newly opened hotel in Gothenburg (opened last spring) after a total renovation in the old main post office building of the town - also adding a new high rise building segment for the majority of the actual rooms. The hotel is smack in the midle of the town just a few steps away from i.e the main railway station, the main bus station and the larg indoor shopping area Nordstan.
The rooms are quite large, with modern furniture and stylish design. The common areas are situated mainly in the old postal office building parts and have a lot of Ex-postal design elements.
The food served in the restaurant is tasteful, so is the breakfast but be aware that there may be quite crowd at breakfast if the large arrangements going on at the hotel.
The restaurant seems quite popular and both the upstairs library bar and the downstairs common bar seems to be one of the "in-places" of the town and quite crowded. In the summer the large outside terrace bars must be very nice.
All-in-all: After two days there last weekend it shows that world class size, service and style has come to Gothenburg.
PS: Please be aware that if there are large arrangements going on at the hotels, a common "single" guest may be restricted to certain areas as some areas may be reserved for these large arrangements (i.e the winter garden).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The post office on Drottningtorget in Gothenburg is an impressive, much-appreciated public building. Designed by Ernst Torulf, it is a typical 1920s building in neo-classical style and has been designated an historical building by the Swedish State. The building is now to be developed into an efficient, modern hotel facility suited to contemporary requirements for logistics and functionality.A new building containing 500 hotel rooms with a rooftop sun terrace and pool overlooking Gothenburg is to be constructed next to the old post office, on the site of the old loading yard that faces Akareplatsen and Odinsgatan. Half of the facade will be covered with slate and the other half with copper - the same materials used in the original post office building.The facade and terrace facing Drottningtorget will feature an open design, thus forming a welcoming entrance for the new hotel. From the entrance, it will also be possible to walk through the hotel out onto Akareplatsen and then on to Odinsgatan. The remaining parts of the terrace will be retained and used as an outdoor service area during the summer months. ... more less
