“Small room - good breakfast”
Reviewed 10 August 2011

We travelled as a family of four - where the youngest was barely two months old. We booked a Family Room, which was really a big joke judging by the size. There were two fold-down bunk beds, but no cot for our youngest like we ordered. However, the receptionist was very helpful and immediately sent one to our room. He also provided us with a fan to cool off since there was no air conditioning in the room. That got us through the night since it was really hot. Also, rooms in the hotel weren't exactly sound-proof, so we heard every little (big) slam or sneeze even if it was on the upper floor. In addition, there was this poster on the wall telling guests that this was a Family oriented hotel, and noisy kids was all part of the routine. Well. Although travelling with kids ourselves, we really felt intimidated by the extent to which some took this a little too literally. If you are looking for a nice, cosy roadside stay just outside Gothenburg, then stay clear of this place. A huge plus for good breakfast, though. It came with gluten free products, I didn't even have to ask for it!

The rooms have no ventilation, small windows which open towards noisy E-6.

We stayed there during days with cool weather. But if we had stayed there on hot days, we would not have survived.

Breakfast was very good.

Scandic Backadal is one of the nicer hotels in the Scandic hotel chain. It's modern, clean, & resonably quiet. They have a great breakfast buffet, & offer free parking. Since it's situated on the island of 'Hisingen', it's a bit off from Gothenburg city center. However, it only takes a few minutes by car to get there. All in all, a pleasant business stay (every time).

Reviewed 27 October 2009

Friendly reception staff both checking in and out.
Clean room (on the third floor), comfortable bed.
Excellent breakfast buffet.
No complaints about the hotel at all, in fact. Location-wise, obviously if it was located in the centre of Gothenburg it would be more convenient, but this was not a big deal. Firstly, it was amply compensated for by the price of the room (just over €50 per night), and secondly, once you have a timetable for the green express bus, getting in and out of the city centre takes only 10-15 minutes.
