This hotel along the port of Goteborg has recently been upgraded within the past few years. Today, although the rooms may be small, they are efficient. The size of the hotel can be misleading since most of the building is built into the rocky coast. For starters, I would ask for a room that overlooks the port. Here you can see the ships that dock in Goteborg, and mostly you can see the Volvo Logistics at work. The almost daily transporting of Cars, Trucks going all over the world. For cocktails I would suggest sitting outside the bar area, where there is an open fire pit as you stare into the sunset over the archipelago. Goteborg has been dubbed by many critics as the 'cuisine capital of Scandinavia'. Other hotel amenities include a nice steam, and sauna - of course, where else do you find good saunas, but in Scandinavia. One thing to remember, this hotel is located in Arken, which is basically across the river from all the main attractions. I would suggest staying on this side if you look for peace and quiet. One can always drive about 3 minutes over to Eriksberg and take the local ferry-taxi into the Centrum.
If you are wanting to visit the Volvo museum, you can spend one night at this hotel, since this is about 1000 yards to the museum.
If you are flying into Goteborg City Airport, not Landvetter, this airport is close.
Finally, if you have meetings in the Arken area - this is a very nice choice since all the office buildings are close by.
