This is my second stay at this hotel. This time I am a bit disappointed. The hotel is very crowded today. There was not enough space in the restaurant today so I had to take dinner outside. But what really annoyed me is the parking solution. The garage is by far too small for this hotel. I am wondering if...

I've stayed here twice in the last six months as its close to the office. My second stay was much better as I had a quieter room. The biggest problem is the single rooms - they are so small! Breakfast is good and the staff are friendly and very helpful.

I stayed one night in Scandic Opalen in September. I was lucky enough to get a room from the 12th floor. The view from the room was just excellent and practically one wall of the room was nothing else but a big window, the stadium was visible from the room. The room decoration was according to the latest Scandinavian style....

I have been staying at this hotel a couple of times, as it is conveniently located when I am in town. Last visit was outstadning, I got a room at one of the top floors that I did not know even existed at this hotel. It was more like a luxury penthouse studio apartment than the room I am usually...

Our room on one of the top floors had a great view. The entire wall was a window, overlooking the stadium. The room was quiet an comfortable. Free breakfast in the morning with a lot of choices. Location is good, just a few blocks walk to the Avenue. Seems common in Sweden to have two twin beds pushed together, a...

Superior room with fresh decor in the top floor. Nice views of Gothenburg. Well located a short distance from the center near Liseberg and Ullevi.. Easy to park. Boring breakfast as in most other Scandic.

Hotel is fine with excellent location. Breakfast was pretty standard, but it managed the soft boiled eggs to perfection. However, the service provided (by Monica Hansson in particular) was world class!

I visited Gothenburg with my boyfriend for a long weekend and Scandic was just what we needed. We were in a newly refurbished room which had a great view over the city, the bed was so comfortable I was tempted to just order breakfast to the room in the mornings.

I stayed there 7 days with my family in a very important Convention. What a great hotel! Great staff, always friendly and helpful. I stayed on the 13th floor and love it!
