“Old and Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

The oldest hotel in Gothenburg is 3 minutes from Central Station and Airport Bus terminal, 5 minutes from theatre,landing stages, 10 minutes from Concert Hall, Theatre, Art Gallery and Park. In other words absolutely prime position. I had single room overlooking courtyard, so quiet that I could have window open - pristine room, only rather small bed was something one could complain about. Superb breakfast, helpful friendly staff, free wi-fi, internet, free coffee, tea and cake all day, two small but pleasant lounges. Reasonable rates for Sweden.

Room Tip: Overlooking courtyard best

Stayed for 4 nights in a standard double room which was smallish, but well laid out and spotless. The reception staff were friendly and exceptionally helpful and the hotel itself is a two minute walk from the centre of things and a 5 min walk from the bus and railway stations. The buffet breakfast was great with plenty of choice and a healthy supply of fresh fruit.
Tips...If coming by bus from the airport, buy your tickets on-line or on the bus. You are charged more if you buy them in the airport....and get yourself a 'GO' city pass which gives entry to most attractions as well as allowing you ticketless bus, tram and ferry travel.
Recommendations: Paddan boat tour of the canal and waterfront...but watch your head!!
Central park...near to the Botanics (also recommended)...the one with the moose!!...and use your pass to visit the Liseberg funfair...if only to soak-up the Atmosphere (it's a ride!) and to appreciate that not all funfairs have to be like the British ones!!
Restaurants...Hello Monkey (Asian fusion) (5 mins from hotel) and sit outside even if it's chilly...the locals do and the restaurants supply blankets!..... and
A must for pizza-lovers...Cyrano on Princegaten....and
For veggies...the Solrosen in Haga (5 min on tram)...very reasonable even with a beer!

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in a deluxe suite. Room was very spacious with separate sitting area. Large modern bathroom with robes supplied. Hotel is located in quite side street only a few minutes from centre. Staff are very friendly. We picked this hotel because it appeared to have an individual charm about it - kind of an old fashioned traditional hotel but with modern feel to it if that makes sense. It is sometimes the little things that you remember most like a pleasant smile when you go in and out. There are no in room tea making facilities but hot drinks are always available from reception area - along with homemade cake that sits all too easy on the hips. Breakfast was typical fare but was still pleasant and relaxing - no pushy people here - you know the ones! Very relaxed feel to this hotel which definitely sets it apart from some of the more commercial chains. If you want box modern this hotel is not for you but if you want to try something a little bit more homely give it a try. The hotel asks you to leave your room key at reception when you go out which might not suit some but it is part of its traditional charm as well.

A very nice hotel, with allot of extra services! There are a blackboard i the reception, there you can see that other guest have found good! There are Internet computer and 2 iPad, so it is very easy to find things on the Internet! The breakfast is above average and has a nice selection. Yogurt, 5 df. mueslis, 5 df. juices, pan cakes, eggs, sausages, 3 df. breads, 5 df. jams. All very nice and good quality. Velbekomme!
PS - Be wand it cost 190 Skr. a day for parking and that's with rebate.
