“Very nice but a little cold”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Staff excellent, everything clean and new, including the toilet. Scandinavian design, so everything pretty functional and warm. Unbeatable position if you need to catch train or airport bus (it is above the station). Opposite the street is Nordstan, the biggest comercial center in Gothenburg.

Only problem: heating was central and air from the grille came cold, no matter what you chose in the room control. That night was 12 C in G´borg! Staff was unable to do anything about that. Guess that the only solution would be to increase the temperature in the whole hotel.

Great location, just in the central station that concentrate trains and buses from Sweden and also from Denmark and Norway. From the hotel you can walk to most of the cities sites.

The room was very comfortable and in check in I was given the choice of room-with or without a bathtub.

Breakfast was very good, a lot of the food seem to be according to the local taste (e.g traditional meatballs).

The only con for the room I received was the view of other rooms of the hotel.

The hotel isn't cheap, but there are many special deals and discount on the hotel site.

Clean tidy rooms although no tissues provided or bath.
Breakfast was one of the best we have experienced although unavailable on public holidays until 10am.
Very central to all major site seeing and coast. Bus transport to Airport nearby

Went to Hotel G early March 2014. OK bed this time :-) And found Soya youghurt for breakfast! Very nice when vegetarian. Still a lovely moderne hotel, room great. Strange that I still do not hear the trains as hotel is placed on top of the station. So handy to stay there as city is within walking distance.

Serviceminded staff at frontdesk. Great beds and super soft linen. Great selection of foods on the breakfast buffet. Walking distance to everything. Easy to locate when arriving by car and easy to get indoor parking.

Located right near the bust/train station and tram lines so it's a great spot for exploring. The rooms were clean, comfortable and in modern Swedish style.

Food and wine in the hotel is very expensive, as it is in all Swedish hotels. Definitely eat out and do you research to find a good place. Our Swedish friend took us to Pinchos, a restaurant that does tapas with a twist. You download the menu app, order. Is your phone and collect your drinks and food from the bar when you get a notification. Swift service and much cheaper because they only need a few staff to work.

We also went to liseberg the Christmas market that transforms the theme park that's there ther est of the year. Definitely worth a visit one evening. Wrap up, the windchill if you walk near the port edge is biting.

This hotel is very nice, quite large rooms and a nice breakfast buffet. I had breakfast at around 9 am on one of the days, and it was very empty even though they serve breakfast until 10. Otherwise, nice place with clean rooms and good location right above the central station.
