Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel, Gothenburg
Ranked #7 of 67 Hotels in Gothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Gothenburg is our new favourite Nordic destination, we combined a business trip with a weekend discovering Gothenburg. This really is so far away from London, you do wonder who dreamt up the idea of comparing this compact and bustling city with London.

In many respects Gothenburg has so much more to offer and the Radisson Riverside is perfectly placed for guests to access the city via the ferry. Rooms are a bit small and lack storage, not being able to open the window is a real drawback as well. That said the beds are comfortable, the staff are very helpful, the breakfast is nice and there is a spectacular view from the terrace.

Room Tip: Obviously the higher up you stay the better the view!

Hotel standard is high giving good value, great facilities from restaurant, bar, gym and spa. There is good internet access. Breakfast space is quite limited so when the hotel is busy you need to either go early or late, before 7.30 am or after 8.15am. staff are very welcoming and helpful.

New hotel with a nice view. Easy access by car and you reach the city centre by ferry just e few minutes away. Garage close to the hotel to a reasonable price. Wellness area on the top floor was amazing. Breakfast included all you could wish for.

An excellent hotel for business travel or a short break. The rooms are well appointed and very modern. Although not located in the centre, there are free ferries sailing every 10 -15 minutes or so which will take you across the river to the Haga district, which is a must see area full of bars, cafes and small shops. The only downside is that the ferries stop sailing around 7pm, however, the number 16 bus passes nearby he hotel frequently. The wow factor of this hotel is the rooftop spa area which has two indoor hot tubs and one outdoor tub. The view from the roof is spectacular. The restaurant is very popular and serves delicious high quality food, however, while we were there, the electronic system went down, which affected wi-fi, cash tills etc. As this was business travel and receipts were required, staff were more than helpful and assured us that itemised bills would be e-mailed to customers. Would definitely stay here again.

On the 2nd day of my stay all electronic systems in the hotel went down .- wifi, telephone, cash register, all computers. Nobody seemed to think it mattered- not action orientation- no apologies - no discounts - no alternative solutions suggested..

The Radison Blue hotel has been one of my best experiences in accomadation when visiting a country. The rooms, the services and the location are perfect. The breakfast is really good and fresh. It is for sure my first election in the future.

Stayed here during Easter holiday. I got upgraded to a business room with a nice sea view. The rooms are spacious, clean and with a cool modern interior. (However, quite strange that the business rooms doesn't have a proper writing desk!) The wellness area, which is free for hotel guests, is great with several hot tubs and a good sauna. You could take the bus or boat to the city center, both options take approx 10 minutes. The breakfast was quite chaotic, but the hotel had several signs that "warned" hotel guests about the most busy hours, so I should probably blame myself for having a late breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade to business room with sea view!
