Reviewed 10 October 2013

We stayed for a weekend and were happy with the hotel location and the very reasonable price (special offer). Friendly service at check-in and in the lobby bar for after-work drinks on Friday. We asked for a quiet room and were really happy with the one we got. Not a sound from outside or other rooms despite the fact that the hotel is located in the central station. The view was not great though; overlooking an indoor courtyard.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room; we did and slept in until 10 am!!

The hotel is inside the central railway station in a very good position for visiting the city. The hotel is a standard four stars, the room are OK and the breakfast is good. The only thing you have to be aware of is that most of the rooms have windows that overlook internal courtyards. Of course this may not be a major problem during the winter but in summer if you fancy sunlight ask for a room with windows looking outside.

We had a very large deluxe room facing Gothenburg , but beware : most rooms face very small and dark interior courtyards.

Shower arrangement Inside a bathtub will never be our favorite !!!!
All Towels of very thin inferior quality and bed pillows very small with syntetic filling!!!

Apart from this everything worked perfectly and we had a very nice stay , right on top of the main railway station (no noise due to soundproof windows)

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room facing the outside world!!!!!!

The location of this hotel, ABOVE the central train station, was perfect for us as we arrived in Gothenburg by train. Couldn't have been more convenient. You follow signs for Hotel, leave the station and re-enter another door which takes you up by escalator to the hotel reception and lounge/restaurant - nicely decorated and comfortable, with big windows overlooking the station concourse. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are arranged in 4 blocks, with windows that overlook internal courtyards - so there's a slightly gloomy feel to the rooms as there's no direct light and I don't think you could open the windows. But apart from that, the rooms were very clean, comfortable, nice bathrooms, nice toiletries, decent breakfast buffet. There seemed to be lots of international business clientele staying, but also families and couples. We felt it was a good choice, and it was a very comfortable and convenient base from which to explore this lovely city - with the brilliant trams stopping just outside the door.

Stayed for one night. The room was clean and tidy. Nothing special, unfotunately no view at all, only to an atrium inside the building.
Comfortable bed, very quiet room.The bathroom floor was wet allover after one of us had used the shower...
Nice breakfast, as expected at this type of hotel
The location is perfect: We travelled by train, and just around the corner :There it is!

Room Tip: Ask for room with a window for outside view!

I liked everything about this hotel. Location was perfect, tasty food in the restaurant, comfortable bed. The personnel was very helpful. I would recommend this hotel both for business meetings and shopping weekends.

This is in the same building of Gothenburg station. go up to the 1st floor and walk over the short bridge over the station shop area to checkin counter.
Airport bus, train across sweden is just a minute. nordostan shoppong mall and other tourist-loving aread are nearby, resutaurants are also walking distance.
