Ideally located in central Gothenburg with everything within walking distance.
We stayed two nights in a deluxe room. The room was nicely designed with little touches like Bvlgari toiletries. Comfortable bed and free WiFi.
The room got very hot even though we turned on the air condition and even opened the windows. It was only 5 degrees Celsius outside so there was something wrong with the heating.
The room was still not made up after 4pm, when we returned from a day of sightseeing.
Did NOT like the lack of a proper bathroom door, it only has a sliding wall that won't close properly.
The DVD-player did not work and even though we asked the staff twice to fix it they never bothered.
The breakfast was -after reading all the 5 star reviews- a bit disappointing, very standard. The variety of prepared fruit and vegetables was poor and it took forever to get a cup of coffee since there was only one coffee machine. They did have a huge selection of painkillers and vitamin pills, never seen that on a breakfast buffet before.
Horrible scrambled eggs, maybe made from powdered eggs, I don't know.
We ordered room-service one evening and it was lovely.
Don't know what was going on with the carpeting in the corridor outside the room, green shag pile carpet in strips that was stuck along the walls, it just looked tacky and dirty.
There were good points and bad points about our stay but we will probably stay somewhere else next time..
