“Nice hotel - bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012

Gothia Towers is a very good hotel as long as you dont drive in your own car, dont interact with the staff af the check-in counter and expect to be able to eat dinner in their skyrestaurant.

The room was spacious and with a great view of the amusement park across the street. 14th floor is a rare experience in Scandinavia.

Big tv screen and very nice design line.

Normally I would rate this experience with 5 stars. However:

The hotel does not have a parking lot. You are forced to park at a conference centre, where the hotel has part of the lot reserved for guests. There are absolutely no signs telling you where to go, and when you have parked: No signs telling you where the hotel is. When you finally make it to the check in counter the staff does not really see this as a problem, and I was ensured that I would have no problems next morning getting to my car and my conference. The reality: The ticket they gave me did not give me access to the parking lot, and only after 5 minutes og hammering at a door did I by pure chance get to my car thanks to another guest from the hotel.

To the management: FIX THIS....And whilst you are at it: Tell the sky restaurant that meatballs in the bar is not the same as a steak in the restaurant.

Enough ranting: this could be a great experience for other guests - going by bus.

Not much to say. Family stay for a couple of days. Room was clean, big enough for the four of us and offered a nice view.

But. Parking the car was a big hassle, quite a distance from the hotel. Breakfast was OK, but dinners were pricy (for Sweden) and not very exciting. The actual stay was also quite pricy for Gothenburg in general. Nice and helpful staff. Good location.

Stayed here for 3 nights for business and a conference. Good facilities, good service at reception with helpful friendly staff.

rooms are very scandinavian, clean but on the small size.

view from rooms is great,looking out over Gothenburg.

Recommend the 23rd floor bar and restauarant, snacks and beer are reasonably priced for Sweden
overall would recommend and look forward to returning someime in the future.

I booked in to Hotel Gothia Towers for a recent conference in Gothenburg. The hotel is obviously designed to cater to large numbers of professionals. It is also half-way through construction! There were 1.5 towers standing in April 2012. There is a neat Lego model construction of the end result in the main lobby worth a look.

Although the completed tower is older than the half-completed tower, I was satisfied to not hear drilling reverberating through the structure, during the day.

The views over Gothenburg are excellent, but what really impressed me was the quality of the buffet breakfast -- the essence of Scandinavian style with Continental complements.

Room Tip: Toiletries were minimal in the bathroom-- think shampoo and bar soap only. There are conditioner an...

we got a room at first, in the western tower (the old one). It felt really old and nothing like the pictures on the website. So we went down to the reception to complain and got a new room in the newer tower and it was so mutch better. Fresh modern room with a great view over korsvägen.
