We were upgraded to a very large room overlooking the harbour. Very comfortable and modern, the staff were helpful and the breakfast was fantastic. We also had dinner at the restaurant, excellent food and a great view, but expensive.

We were excited about the 'The Riverton View' restaurant however this was closed for the entire weekend with no explanation or apology. My partner booked a "double room" via a third party booking website. When we arrived we were told we had to pay extra if we wanted a double bed, otherwise 2 singles would be provided. We reluctantly accepted... More

Been staying there several times a year for the last few years. Always a professional welcome, rooms are up to date and the Sky Bar is great for evening gatherings. Breakfast is very relaxed (none of the usual checking your room number as if you might be a passing stranger blagging a free meal!), They have a variey of meeting... More

Have stayed at the Riverton several times on business over the years, but in recent times they seem to have improved things considerably. The revamped reception area is very spacious and welcoming and the staff friendly. Had a comfortable twin room which was spotlessly clean and that includes the wet room which is very stylish. The large multi-channel TV and... More

We only stayed for a night, with our kids of 7 and 10. The hotel is central (only around the corner from the main pedestrian shopping area and 15 minutes walk to the Opera house and Maritiman museum - highly appreciated by our children), nicely decorated, with a convenient parking just in front and, although there are some repair works...

My boyfriend and I spent six days in Gothenburg and we booked a Superior Double room at Hotel Riverton. I can write lots of positive things about the hotel, the staff was absolutely nice, the breakfast was delicious and it was varied. The room itself was very clean and nicely equipped (hair-dryer, iron, iron-board, TV, we also had free wi-fi)... More

We had booked a twin room, but our beds were so close to each other that the room was practically a double room. It wasn't possible to push the beds apart, which was a disappointment. The room was cramped, and it was strangely difficult to find the main door of the hotel when entering the hotel for the first time.... More

Had planned to stay for 3 nights but left after 2. I know it was middle of summer, but with temperatures less than 30c, it seem that the heat rises through the building during the day to upper floors and Sky bar. Staff were good and helpful, but no refund for night we cancelled, even with 24 hours notice, as... More

Dear BrendanO, I am sorry to hear that your stay with us was not what you expected. As you noticed during your stay, Gothenburg City Council is currently transforming our area in a project to bring the city closer to the water. Unfortunately, this may impact parking in the area for guests. We do offer secure parking but we do... More

Very good hotel and excellent service. I would return. Room very nice and modern and quiet - it was hot overnight as no aircon. Breakfast was excellent. Great location, easy walk to everything including old town and restaurants. Recommended
