“Great hotel, close to central station and super friendly staff”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Were looking for something of average price but good location and managed to get a great deal at this hotel.

Location: 5 mins walk from central station so very handy for arriving by airport bus. Also walking distance to the main streets and areas in Gothenburg including Avenyn, and we also walked to the areas of Haga and Linne... depends how much you want to walk - we walked all weekend! ;-)

Transport: there were loads of trams running all over the city, so if you dont want to walk it would be very easy to take trams everywhere

Room: basic but clean, modern and newly renovated, had all required conveniences including free Wifi

Breakfast: huge buffet selection, with friendly staff who topped up the buffet constantly which was great (always disappointing if you go to a hotel and everything in the buffet keeps running out!)

Staff: reception staff were always very friendly and helpful, including letting us check in early and out a bit later than normal to suit our flights

Overall, we really enjoyed this hotel, had everything we needed, great location, friendly staff - would definitely recommend for a weekend break in charming Gothenburg.

Average hotel where nothing really impresses you. I have a feeling the hotel is primarily booked for it's excellent location just next to the central station, as the property itself doesn't have much to offer.

It seems the rooms (at least the one I stayed in) have received a bit of a facelift lately, but traces of the rather old original interior can be seen everywhere. Basic and boring. No bathroom amenities. No mini-bar. My room was facing the atrium, meaning it wasn't possible to open any windows. Unfortunate, as it was very warm in the room.

I would not stay here again, unless I had to. There are many other better options nearby (the Elite chain hotels for example), which offer much more value for about the same money - especially if you want to visit Gothenburg for leisure.

Very central location but a little bit too much business hotel for a couple in a weekend. The man who served us in the lobby restaurant (chilean guy) was very friendly.

Very central location and definitely one of the better Scandic Hotels I've stayed at (which is a few).

Sauna and jacuzzi at top floor, surprisingly delicious clam ravioli in the restaurant, good breakfast, garage in building, etc.

Not first choice for tourists who wants to stay where there are restaurants and shopping, but if you appreciate to have 30 seconds walk to the train station, 30 seconds walk to Drottningtorget (local railbus hub) and 30 seconds walk to the football stadium - then this is your place.

Do not miss out on a walk in beautiful Trädgårdsföreningen ("The Garden", sort of).
