“Centrally located, good quality, expensive parking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Centrally located hotel very close to shopping areas and downtown restaurants as well as the main avenue, Kungsportavenyn. Also close the small and nice streets around the Cathedral. Rooms are nice, air quality in the room was however an issue during the warm days in July-August. Best is to ask for a room with street windows. Valet Parking is expensive (295 SEK per day) but it is sometimes difficult to get a good parking downtown Gothenburg. Parking house in Nordstan (300 meters away) is cheaper. Nice and service minded hotel staff.

Dear Per H,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us.
It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I appologise for the warm temperature in the room, this summer has been extreamly warm.
Many guests appreciate our secure parking, but like you mentioned there are public parking available near by as well.

I hope we get to welcome you the next time you are visitng Gothenburg!

Best Regards
Theresa Schedvin

The room was very large with fantastic beds. Unfortunately, our room didn't have a view, but overlooked another building only a few meters away. The breakfast was the best I ever had, with scrambled eggs, bacon, grilled tomatoes, mushrooms, baked beans and a lot of other stuff. The only downside was the really bad wi-fi, which was both slow and also very weak.

We stayed in another hotel and changed to Radisson Blu. The location is great since its in the city centre. Ambiance is great and the breakfast has a wide range of items to choose from. The only downside is that we have to pay extra for use of the swimming pool. We thought it was included in the room price.

My husband and I stayed in the hotel for two nights. We had booked a Standard Room that wasn't available so we were upgraded to a Business Room that overlooked the canal and central train station.

The room was large with plenty of amenities, including free on demand movies and access to the gym/pool that were included with the room's Business status. However, the bathroom was in need of maintenance. Overall, the hotel is in good condition despite the outdated decor and some obvious details pertaining to its age.

The highlights to this hotel were: 1) the location and 2) the breakfast buffet.
You can walk to shops, restaurants, public transit, parks, bars, you name it, from the hotel's front door. Including a large parkade adjacent to a mall (note that parking here is pricey and you cannot take your vehicle before 6am).
The breakfast buffet was amazing, so many choices, so much food, helpful staff. You will not be eating lunch after!

The major drawback was the internet connection. Not only because we couldn't check our emails, but when a family emergency arose in Canada, we could not hold a Skype call in the middle of the night when presumably the majority of guests were sleeping. It was extremely difficult to book emergency flights and cancel hotels when every time we tried to connect on our iPads/iPhones, the connection was cut and restarted the session.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone without a vehicle and for those who want to disconnect during their stay.

This was a good hotel. Business style, but efficient, good and efficient service, large room. I definitively will use it again for a next stay in Göteborg. The only subject they could improve is implementing airconditioning in the room. I was very hot. But all in all an excellent hotel

This was our third stay at Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Gothenburg. As always, the staff was great- friendly, and service-minded to the highest degree. I'd booked two Business Class rooms, but since I'm a wheelchair user, they put me in a handicap room, just with the added trimmings. The handicap rooms are the same size as a Business Class room, but they doesn't have a proper airconditioning, the ventilation doesn't work, and they are all facing the inner courtyard, i. e. no idea to open a window to get in cooler air.
I woke up at 2 a.m. in a serious sweat and with a thundering headache. After contacting the staff, I got a fan, which helped somewhat, but it didn't do much for my sleep. In fact, the lack of airconditioning ruined my night, and the following day.
When checking out, I mentioned this to the man at the counter who, by the way, was standing right next to the big sign with the "100% satisfaction guaranty- or your money back." After hearing my story, he knocked off SEK 146,- off my bill of 1.800,-.
I thought, " you must be kidding." After a lot of arguing, he knocked off another SEK 400,-. This was nice, but if you are not serious about a 100% satisfaction-guaranty, why put it all over the hotel in the first
place??
And, by the way, the free Wifi is rubbish.
I'm quite sorry to write this, because the Radisson is most of the time a great example on how to run a hotel.
