We were very happy with our choice to book the Hotel Villan. Arriving by ferry with our car, there was plenty of parking just outside of the hotel (machine payment). The hotel's interior is stylish, and the family room was very spacious and ideal for staying with two children. We enjoyed the lovely breakfast. To get into Gothenburg, you can... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Villan. + Stylish rooms (we stayed in the massive suite with sauna. Probably the best hotel room I have ever been in) + View of the canal + Great food (breakfast and dinner) + Pleasant staff + Fairly priced parking nearby +/- Not in the city centre, and some might find it a bit...

This hotel wasn't as close to Gothenburg as I would have liked. You have to take a ferry (about 15-20 mins) to get to the main city and it was very inconvenient (especially when the ferries only run every hour in the evening). Also, the room was very hot so we had to sleep with the windows open and the... More

The bad: 1. Unfriendly welcoming. 2. Very bad air conditioning. 10cm opening, and almost no effect. It feels like it is nonexisting, which of course gives bad air quality. 3. Broken toilet seat in the bathroom. 4. Overall low cleaningstandards. 5. Breakfast: Slow refills and hardly any cleaning of tables. Scarce selection. Nonexisting service, lousy coffee which feels like low... More

Nice hotel close to the sea in a calm area. rooms clean and big enough. if you are lucky you will maybe have a room where you can see the sea otherwise you can see it from the restaurant. Nice breakfast.

This is a great place. Friendly staff, clean rooms, decent WiFi. It would not be the sort of place you find by accident, but you should definitely book in here if you find yourself in the area. I wish I had had more time to stay so that I could have tried the restaurant. Maybe next time.

We recently had the pleasure to stay at this wonderful hotel recently. A character building on the waterfront, and the ambience, superb quality of decor, service, food and staff were second to none. Our room was outstanding, overlooking the busy waterfront, very comfortable bed and attention to detail was very thoughtful. A frequent ferry right at your door allows you... More

This is a nice and small hotel in Göteborg. Nice rooms, good breakfast, nice people. The funny thing of it was that it was moved by boat through the river from some kilometers north and It is here in one peace....

We liked a lot staying there, and would stay again without a shadow of doubt. It was a little bit of a hassle to be dependent on the ferry or a taxi to get home from the city center. If you'd like to go home and relax in between shopping and dinner, for example, for some, it's a little inconvenient,... More

Very nice Hotel. A warm welcome by the staff The room was spacious, clean and well designed. The Hotel itself was very quiet, also it was obviously fully booked. Diner at the restaurant was delicious. Breakfast was ok, except the coffee. This was only a hot water instant D&E "coffee".
