As most of the hotels in Sweden, you have to do everything by yourself in the hotel. We've spent 7 nights at Riverton and the experience was OK, based on the price I spent, you expect much more from a 4 stars hotel. We lived in Gothenburg and we had to stay there during to our moving overseas. Plenty of... More

I stayed for a weekend in the basic room with a single bed. The room was small and dark and the view was horrible so I kept the curtains closed for the whole time. Everything was clean but a bit worn out. No fridge or safe in the room. There was a water boiler and some complementary coffee though. Sleeping... More

Everything was going well, then the hotel had a party on Saturday night. The band was loud, carrying the bass throughout the hotel. It was too loud to sleep. It might have the capacity to carry such a party but should have volume restrictions. Completely unacceptable. I complained and was told, "I'm sorry." Not good enough. Upon arrival our room... More

Stayed there several times with my previous company. Amazing staff, great rooms, the Sky Bar is something and breakfast is very good. However don't go there for lunch- horrible. Anyway- very good place to stay in Gothenburg as it's also pretty close to city centre

A two night stay at Hotel Riverton left the following impression. Large clean room with queen sized bed. Comfortably firm mattress but pillows were too hard for my taste. A request for softer pillows was not a problem though. Small but clean bath worth shower and very nice towels. Few amenities but those that were were of good quality. Good... More

Stayed in a Junior Suite with my family. I am a bad sleeper but here I had the best sleep for many years. Had to admit that room temperature was a bit high but anyway, had a very good night sleep. Quiet room which is good. Hardly could hear anything from neighbouring rooms. Location is perfect. Easy to find by... More

Enjoyed a night at Hotel Riverton last weekend. We chose the Junior Suite which was very comfortable. Nice size, all of the facilities you would expect. The sky bar restaurant is great. Superb food and views. Breakfast was typical scandic style. Everything you would expect to find. With the current tram works being carried out by the hotel I'd recommend... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel while in Gothenburg. It was really just a basic hotel. The first disappointment was that we specifically requested a double room and not a twin room- which we stated on the booking clearly (we are on honeymoon as well). Upon checking in, we had been given the twin room so had to... More

Pros *Hotel is by the harbour, about a 10 minute walk from Central Station on average. We used our phone GPS to find it which guided us on a really complicated route but there are two very simple routes that are pretty much a straight walk so would recommend asking people instead or looking at a map *It's a very...

The experience was unique!! I stayed at the hotel last December during a business trip in Gothenburg. I arrived around 13.00 very tired and I asked for some local restaurants around the area. I have been told that there was one at the Haga area... after my insistence the receptionist just told me that there are restaurants on the street... More
