Reviewed 16 May 2014

The hotel is currently in the middle of a major building site which is quite off putting on arrival. Once you naigate the mud you are warmly greeted by the friendly reception staff.

The rooms are basic and small, but functional and clean. The lack of room service, or any food options was dissapointing, but again not unexpected for a hotel at this price point.

Breakfast was OK and the breakfast room was probably the nicest spot in the hotel.

This place is actually better than expected. Located a little of track, next to one of those street that used to be inappropriate, I expected worse. The place is fine however. Service is nice. Breakfast even good. Rooms adequate. If the price is nice and you can consider a nice walk from the station, I recommend it.

Nice, clean hotel. Staff was nice. I reached in hotel 1 hour before the checkin time. And the room was ready for checkin. Hotel was in a calm area about 10-15 minutes walk from the main shopping centre. The waffle and snacks in the evening were awesome and the breakfast was nice.

The previous review is spot-on. If you are an american and this is your first city in europe you will find it very small, expensive, a minimal staff and the breakfast and wifi only ok. Anyone who has traveled a lot in europe will find it typical sized, a great deal, the staff helpful and breakfast and wifi good. I did not stay anywhere else but I thought I clearly made the right choice for Gothenburg and did not regret it.

Good:
Location: you can walk easily to everything downtown. It is on a quieter street (across from a power plant but no worries on that). It was a 15 minute walk to the university.
Price: if you book ahead it is very good for Gothenburg. If you wait, probably not so.
Breakfast: lots of options with a cappuccino machine.
Staff: minimal as noted above but helpful though you may have to track them down in the kitchen as they have multiple responsibilities.
Room was clean and neat. The bed was a US double although listed a single on booking.com. I had a window from which I could see the harbor/river (only about 40% of the rooms have this).

So-so: the room is definitely small but efficient. There are not a lot of services but they are willing to try.

I only picked this hotel because I took a little while to decide on my trip and it was the cheapest offer during high summer season in Gothenburg. I honestly didnt expect too much, however, the hotel has a friendly staff willing to help you at any time, breaksfast is good enough and I had wifi included. Location is not too bad either, as I could find the beauty of the harbour just across the street. You can also reach Jäntorget tram station in five minutes walking distance. Good thing about a hotel that is a little outside center is that you can avoid the noise and crazy drunks at the door step. The street is really quiet. Center is 3 stations away, therefore, I found it perfect for my need. In the surroundings one can find several italian and local food restaurants. The room I got was very small and the bathroom seemed to be just renovated. I'd stay there again.

Hotel Comfort City Centre is a good business hotel. Rooms are not average size and are reasonably priced. Good restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel. Reception is polite and helpful. Free tea, coffee and cake available in the breakfast area all the times. Overall would rate good value for money.

Room Tip: Internet in rooms that are close to Hotel Riverton logs you off now and then. As both these hotels h...

On our way further south, we wanted to make a one night stop i Gothenburg. This little hotel has a super friendly staff, clean rooms, free coffee (which is great) and an ok breakfast. Internet is also included. In other words all you need for a short stay. It's located just a short and nice walk from city centre and you will find both shopping and restaurants only minutes away. It is easy to get there by car and the hotel offer you parking for only SEK 150 pr. day. That is a good deal and the parking is right outside the hotel. The outside is not the most attractive scenery - but with the warmth from the nice staff and the coffee I'm sure you will be happy.
