I was so relieved to find this hotel after researching lodging in Gothenburg. The pictures on the website are an exact representation of the hotel... It's gorgeous! Very comfortable and inviting with a delicious breakfast. The hotel just opened a few months ago, so it seems they might still be perfecting the operations (which I anticipated). Only a few very minor recommendations for improvement. First, there was no tea kettle in the room. The bathroom amenities were great, but the lighting could have been better. Also, there is no shelf or ledge in the shower for your soap and/or shampoo. It would have been nice to have a room service menu and telephone directory in the room, but I would anticipate they will be adding those. One other thing worth mentioning... Someone walked in my room and immediately closed the door upon realizing the room was occupied. I know this happens in hotels from time to time, but it was a bit unsettling. I could not identify if it was hotel employee or another guest, but there no knocking prior to entry.
The lava TV was great and had Internet, music channels, YouTube, and Facebook. Robe and slippers were very comfy. If you're traveling alone, a standard room should be spacious enough. However, if you're traveling with someone else, I would recommend upgrading to a "medium" or "large" room category.
Overall, service was good, but I think there is room for improvement. The breakfast staff was wonderful, but the reception staff was not very warm or sincere... This might just be a training issue with being a new hotel.
If I return to Gothenburg, I will definitely return to Dorsia.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- welcome inside It can happen that a guest walks in and thinks they have taken a wrong turn. There he stands, somewhat baffled by the absence of a reception desk which usually marks a kind of limit. He might even think that he has ended up in the wrong era and in the home of an eccentric lady from the previous century. A patron of the arts maybe, given that the place is teeming with artwork. However, he soon realises that this is quite real and now, maybe after catching sight of the business-suited men in the restaurant. Either that or the young people at the bar deep in conversation. Sometimes a guest, like the film director, falls so in love with a room (room 412) that he immediately decides to shoot his next film there. Or simply move in for good. Take the example of the entrepreneur who very seriously suggested that his company buy a part of the hotel to give their clients a special and completely unique experience. When asked what he meant by “special”, he answered: just like Thousand And One Nights, only for real. Allow us to introduce our hotel manager: Thomas Petersen. The best way to get to know him and his ideas, including those about the restaurant, is to read the information under the "Legacy" tab. In the course of his many trips through Europe with his father, Thomas Petersen grew to love their both serious and playful approach to fine dining. Also, at the most renowned restaurants there was an unpretentious joie de vivre based on the understanding that it is the guests who are all important! Not to mention the guests’ conversation. Drawn-out food presentations are not always essential. An unforgettable meal consists in equal measure of interesting conversation, joyful laughter, beautiful presentation and surprising ingredients. ... more less
