“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

Comfortable, spacious room. Service was excellent and we were very happy to discover that the hotel has a laundry guests can use. Complimentary dinner was a nice surprise and very good as was breakfast with options for people with food allergies. Close to the train station.

By the time we had found our way in the rain to the hotel, following the useless directions given on their website, I was wet, irritated and tired. The hotel is in fact less than five minutes walk from Central Station - simply head for the taxi rank, then towards the Scandic Hotel, clearly visible across the main thoroughfare, and you will find Odinsgatan immediately to the left of the Scandic. The Clarion is just a few yards in and on the left.

Entering the spacious yet warm, welcoming Reception of our hotel dispelled my bad mood immediately. The decor is modern and typically Swedish: furnishings in warm reds and oranges offset with black, natural wood, gleaming chrome, soft lighting. The Reception lounge leads to an attractive courtyard with plenty of seating under cover.

Our room was much larger than I had expected and included a small kitchen, with full size fridge, cooker and microwave. Although we didn't cook for ourselves during our stay, it was nice to be able to put in the fridge the fresh milk, which we brought from the Reception Lounge, where hot beverages, juice and water are provided free of charge around the clock.

Although our room looked out over the railway lines, there was no noise disturbance, as the windows are triple glazed. And there was an excellent view of the Eye and the Lipstick beyond the railway and into the harbour. We could even see the four masts of The Viking. Given the location of the hotel, I would say that this is the best aspect for a room there.

Comfortable bed(s) with good quality bedding and soft pillows. The television picture was slightly grainy but adequate and offered plenty of channels. Full sized sofa and coffee table - more of a bedsit than the standard double room we had booked.

The wet room, with its heated floor, was a delight. And what a pleasant change to have a shower that was not only powerful but easy to control - both temperature and flow. A full sized bathroom cabinet with great lighting, a normal hairdryer - not one where you have to keep your thumb pressing the 'on button'.

The standard of cleanliness at this hotel is impressive, from our room to the public areas, including corridors. As for refreshment, no guest need ever feel hungry or thirsty, with self service hot drinks, fruit juice and water available constantly, as well as the all day fruit bowl, excellent buffet breakfast, complimentary cakes mid afternoon and buffet dinner each evening. We availed ourselves of the buffet on Sunday evening, having eaten lunch in a restaurant. There was an excellent choice of salads and cold dishes, and one hot dish, a stroganoff, which was not particularly good. I had assumed from the reviews I read in advance of our visit that the evening buffet was for those who had paid for it when booking - not so; we had booked room and breakfast, yet all of these 'extras' were complimentary.

All in all, I would highly recommend The Clarion Odin. In addition to the features mentioned already, the staff are friendly, helpful and efficient, which makes all the difference. Our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The only thing that was not perfect was the weather - and we could hardly blame the hotel for that, could we?

Room Tip: Some rooms look 'inwards' over the Reception Lounge, so ask for one 'looking out' if...

We stayed for two days, two grown-ups and a 1 1/2 year old. The room was beautiful, clean, bright. The window was facing inward, towards the restaurant and reception area, but we didn't hear any noise at all (and I usually can't sleep at hotels because of noises). Breakfast and warm supper buffet (served at 6pm) was included, so we didn't really have to go out for dinner, which is very practical when you travel with small children. There was also a playroom for kids in the reception area, and our daughter REALLY enjoyed being there, It was better than anything else we did the whole time in Gothenburg :) We had a really nice and very relaxing stay

Ok, over all. We got a good corporate rate. Includes dinner and breakfast which is great if you are on a budget.

Reviewed 31 August 2011

We stayed here for two nights in August. The hotel is located about a 5-10 min walk from the train station. Its a huge hotel but doesn't feel crowded at all..even at the breakfast and dinner servings. Breakfast was excellent with a good range of options. Dinner was great too, we only ate there one night but had a nosey the other night before heading out and the main course seemed to be the same again.

The rooms were a good size and spotless, with tea/coffee facilities. TV was good as most Swedish channels are in English then subtitled.

For lone travellers, the hotel seems very secure - keycards are needed to access every corridor.
