I stayed at the Hotel Lorensberg last week while attending a conference at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. It was one of the least expensive options but I'm sure it was nicer than many of the pricier hotels. I reserved a double room after reading that some of the singles were pretty small. My room had plenty of space and included a double bed, a desk, a table and chair, an ample closet, and a bathroom. It was spotless and had up-to-date furnishings. The bed was very comfortable. The TV has several English language channels -- I found some BBC shows as well as some current American shows.
The hotel has a very cheery feel with pictures of flowers painted on the walls in the hallway. The breakfast was quite good and had a variety of items to suit different tastes. I loved having cakes/cookies and coffee available in the lobby -- fruit too! The hotel staff were quite friendly, and there was free wi-fi. (They recently changed the system so that access now lasts for 24 hours and after that you just have to click to renew.)
The hotel is just a 5-10 minute walk to the Congress Center. It's also just a block and a half away from the "Avenyn" -- Gothenburg's main shopping/dining street. Nearby are several good restaurants and a couple of grocery stores. Just a few doors away is a very nice chocolate shop (Berzelii Chocolates) for your chocolate fix or for gifts. And the airport bus stop is also just 5-10 minutes away, outside the Congress Center -- I definitely recommend the bus for getting to and from the airport.
I would happily stay at this hotel if I ever find myself in Gothenburg again!
