Arena Hotel
Ranked #53 of 67 Hotels in Gothenburg
Reviewed 19 July 2014

This hotel is really quiet fantastic. Get on number 3 tube (to kebab shop), this drops you literally 30 seconds away from hotel. From outside looks a little drab but do not let this put you off. We found the room clean and tidy and had great nights sleep every night in a comfortable bed. The breakfast was excellent, selection of meats,cheese,museli,fruit, egg and bacon. Coffee and juices on tap 24x7. The staff could not be more helpful and you were greeted with a smile, nothing was too much bother. There is a Co-op just round corner and the locals seem to picnic at the cemetery so do take a wander. Everything is a tram ride away but you are far enough away from the hubbub.

Room Tip: room at back of hotel, noise free after dark

This is a buget hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious. However, do not expect any special detail as they are pretty basic. Breakfast is also basic but enough. It is a good option to stay a few days in Göteborg under budget.

This is a wonderful hotel which is close to central station, just 10 minutes walk to the major shopping mall. The hotel room is clean, tidy, with sitting area and comfortable. Besides, the breakfast is with variety of foods. Really recommended.

This is about 10-15 minutes walk from central station. It is near the Arena and so if there is a gig going on it is very noisy, When we were there (May31st 3 nights) There was a festival on (so I would check).
Staff were friendly and helpful, Good, buffet breakfast available and beds comfy. Building work going on nearby but not at weekends. It was overpriced when I booked but it was a busy weekend and not much availability else where, Wooden floors meant we could hear the person above moving around

We had a lovely time at the Arena Hotel. From the outside it looked quite deceptive but as soon as you walked in, things changed. The staff was very friendly, I needed a charger for my phone (as mine wasn't working properly) and i got one right away. The room was more than ok (there are construction works at the roundabout but if you plan to stay for the weekend you will not hear any noise). Breakfast was substantial... Free coffee and fruit all day long and free waffles from 5pm till 9am! What can you ask more?
Perfect location, Ullevi Norra tram stop is literally 2 minutes round the corner and the
3 can take you anywhere :) Central Station is less than 10 minutes walk (if you have to) and the beautiful gardens are literally 5 minutes away. Liseberg is 5 minutes on the 6 tram.
I would recommend it to everybody and I will definitely go back

My second time in Gothenburg and my first at the Arena hotel, i hope it's not my last . Loved every minute of it, breakfast was much better than i expected for being a budget hotel and the staff are not only extremely beautifull but really friendly as well as being good at their jobs. The hotel and the rooms are spotlessly clean and in good order. if you are coming to Gothenburg then you should stay at the Arena :)

This is a fairly basic hotel though having said that the rooms are quite spacious, beds very comfortable and rooms have an enormous TV with loads of channels. There is a breakfast room where you can get juice, fruit and hot drinks 24/7 which is a nice touch. It is in a really good location - 5 min walk from central station where you can get trams and buses, and also within walking distance of the Nordstan shopping centre and the start of the main Avenue in Gothenburg, off which you can find museums and cool streets for wandering, coffee, browsing and shopping. The staff are really friendly and helpful. There is building work during the day but they have signs up about this, and if you are out in the day it is fine!
