Hard bed, didn't get much sleep. Toilets and bathrooms need a upgrade. At least helpful and nice personal. Parking garage was extremely small and hard to park. If you have a big car don't park there..

When we travel in Scandinavia, we always stay at a Scandic hotel because we know that they offer a good quality for the money. They also have quite good handicap rooms, although it is some times difficult to wash your hands when you are in a wheelchair. Scandic got quite a few hotels in Gothenburg and Opalen is one of...

All Scandic hotels have very high standard and excellent front desk service, Opalen does not fail. Breakfast is extensive and regular fine Scandic standard. Good, large and quiet rooms.

Hotel provided a very comfortable, well appointed room, with floor to ceiling windows that afforded outstanding views of the city (9th floor).
