“Good, great, Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

The title is respectively for room, food and location.
A great value for money this hotel is.
You just cannot beat this location and the price you pay is quite reasonable.
We stayed for a week in this hotel and loved every bit of it. The breakfast spread was delicious and lot of options were there.

I used to take Bus#99 to office, which was a great convenience. Pressbyrån stayed open quite late and best of all the Avenyn was soooooo close.
Just 10 mins walk and you are in front of Nordstand.
I realize I can just go about the location :)

Stayed in this Hotel October 2011 and found it to be a great find. Location was great, about 10 minutes from the Centeal Train Station and even less to local restaurants etc.
Rooms are very adequate with all hotel facilities. Room sizes due vary as we found out by asking to move to a larger room as our first room was quite small, really only suitable for 1 person rather than a couple. The female receptionist was very helpful and more than happy to move us to a larger room. The hotel at the moment is undergoing some room improvements but our stay wasn't disturbed by this at all.
Breakfast is simple but ok, although not many tables. If the hotel was full it may be a struggle to seat all guests. Free hot drinks are available 24 hours with the added bonus of free cake & fruit as well.
Overall a good 3* hotel, and one that I would recommend to other travellers.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2011

We spent a couple of nighs here in Sept 2011, having looked for a cheap hotel for a longweekend.

Firstly the location - a 10 min walk to the middle of the City it's ideal - very handy for the football ground and also v close to a bus station.

The young lady in reception was bubbly and friendly - happy to help out with various tourist questions too. Reception had a computer with free internet and free coffee / biscuits. A secure cupboard for left luggage a big plus.

No escaping the room is very basic - no wardrobe or drawers or ironing board or kettle or coffee or anything like that. But it was clen and the bed very soft and comfy. We had corner room which had big windows on 2 sides which semed odd ! The wifi was excellent - great to get free wifi as was the wall mounted lcd tv.

Breakfast was nice - hot bacon / meetballs and scrambled egg and all the usual cerials / bead / cheeses and cold meats.

Downsides ? Well on both nights there were periods of music coming from somewhere (Across a road ?), Also at breakfast there were more tables than dinners on Sunday morning - we waited 15 mins and went back - possinly just bad timing (Although some seasoned guests appeared to be getting their food on a tray and heading back to their rooms). As mentioned the rooms are basic (But comfortable and clean)

All these are small criticisms - concidering the costs of accomodation in Gothenberg the Allen is something of a godsend and for what we paid we were very happy.

It is about a ten minute walk to the central Station, The hotel was nice, clean, free PC access in Lobby, free coffee 24/7, very friendly staff, room was average size, modern and clean. I only stayed here one night but came away feeling I got a good value. Being close enough to the train station, but still enjoy a quiet nights sleep. There are plenty of diners and nice pubs to walk to as well as mid to upscale shopping and the harbor with the giant ferris wheel is also only a short walk. It was friendly, clean and a great location.
