“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2012

The hotel has exactly what I need for a simple stay in Gothenburg: A comfortable bed and bathroom, privacy, a good breakfast. And it is in a quiet neigborhood, a few minutes walk from the train/bus station. I am sure I will stay there again.

I was very dissapointed when I saw the bathroom, shower without a basin is not acceptable for me. I understand that this is a rather cheap hotel but the difference between rooms is huge. I traveled with my business colleagues and we all booked the same room category and payed the same price for the rooms. They had nice rooms with beautiful bathrooms, like the ones on the website but mine was terrible. Bathroom was tiny with old, shabby furniture and without shower basin so the floor was always wet. All the other rooms very occupied.
The room could also be cleaner, sofa was really dusty and there was garbage (plastic bottle and candy wrapers) behind the curtains.
Location is good, staff friendly and breakfast was ok.

. Although I was initially dissapointed with our room as it was not as attractive as those on the website and also had peeling paint work around the window ( room 102) I was soon won over by the fantastic atmosphere and great customer service. The fact that we could help ourselves to tea, coffee and juices ( as well as some gorgeous cinnamon buns!) 24hrs for free was a lovely touch. The room was very clean and the best shower I have used in ages. I am a regular visitor to Sweden and would definately recommend the Arena Hotel. We were in Gothenburg to see the Madonna show and the location was simply PERFECT!!. My friend from Stockholm was due to meet us with the tickets print outbut was delayed. The staff were so helpful in allowing me to email the PDF to the hotel and kind enough to print it (for free) for me. I can tell you as a hardend Madonna fan I was stressing I would not get my tickets but thanks to the great service I managed to get to the very front of the Golden Circle and was within a meter of Madonna!! I would like to thank the team for making my stay so enjoyable.

At 9pm, tired from 11hrs plane journeys, a taxi of 180Kr for a 5 min. walk from the airport bus is outrageous. Arena tucked into a block in a side street. Bizarre reception but once IN - OK. Single room just that, narrow, back view into building site will get better, but still a car park within 5 storey flats. TV, Egyptian cotton duvet and 'OK' pillows. No tea/coffe making??. Clean, wood laminate floor. Walk-in shower-room, toilet, bare but functional. Good shower. Noisey at 6am. Breakfast (alone?) very wide 'Continental' fare, better than most. Good reception service. Good value at £65/B&B

Great value especially as a pit-stop. The staff were friendly and helpful as we checked in late at night. It's within a 5 or so minute walk from the train station. The hotel room was large and comfortable with two beds, a desk, sofa (futon) and a bathroom. We enjoyed the variety of hot and cold items for breakfast. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you!
