Great hotel in the middle of city center. You can walk everywhere from here and no need for taxi if you come with airport shuttle to train station.
We got a room with city view, just at the corner of building overlooking two sides of Gothenburg. Rooms were nicely decorated and contemporary, though there could have been more room for luggage and things, I guess hotel has also bigger rooms - check while booking. Downstairs bar is great for drinks and also carries some snacks if you happen to be hungry (we were). Breakfast is good, though crowded, in-room-breakfast might be better option, perhaps. Restaurant has good selection of fish and lovely atmosphere.
- 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
