A very central hotel (just a minute away from the train station and lots of transportation and one of the biggest malls in Sweden). The service is great, the breakfast spread was excellent. I did find the hotel a bit chilly and the rooms thermostat wasn't the best (it worked, but not the best settings). There is a rooftop pool, but there is only one shared changing room with a lonely shower. I was a bit disappointed at the size of the standard room and the fact that there was a bit too little place to put your stuff on or in (no drawers).
The front of the hotel has a restaurant/night club and I can imagine that it can be noisy if you're unfortunate to get a room over the restaurant. I slept at the back of the hotel and didn't notice anything.
- 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
