After finding a great deal we booked this hotel for a two night stay at the city. The rooms are very spacious with a very modern decor, clean and equipped with TV, fridge and mini bar, iron and table, a small desk and extra chairs, towels, robes and a closet.

Stayed here two nights whilst on business elsewhere. Around 30-45 mins in taxi costing approx 440 SEK. Lovely hotel, helpful staff and room is well equipped. Bathroom very stylish and bed comfortable. Room was rather stuffy and construction works right outside put me off opening window. Rooftop Bar is beautiful with a matching view. Breakfast was also very nice and... More

The hotel is generally good and located near the town center. A little bit busy at breakfast but the staff is quick and friendly. The sky bar offers a beautiful view over parts of the town and the river.

I've decided to stay in this hotel because it's located close to Lindholmen park where I had business negotiations. Generally hotel is good. Staff is friendly and attentive though it might be busy on reception on check-in/check-out. Rooms and breakfast are ordinary. The best place in hotel is sky bar, definitely worth to try.

For our first trip to Goteborg (end of May 2014), we chose the Riverton due to the competitive prices and location close to the centre. We were not disappointed and would be more than happy to stay there again when we next visit Sweden. Good points: Reception staff were always very helpful and, as is the case pretty much throught...

My family stayed in one of the Riverton's apartments. Even with the current construction going on outside, the Riverton did a very nice job of welcoming us, provided excellent, clean facilities, and an outstanding breakfast buffet. It is well organized and, for its quality, reasonably priced. It also is in a convenient location to central Gothenburg and the waterfront. The... More
