Was here for 8 nights as we are having a training/meeting session. Overall, the stay was good, let me share the good and bad! Thumbs up: 1) breakfast spread has decent variety and decent quality. Only problem is breakfast is same everyday! 2) view from the 12th floor restaurant is gorgeous! Good view of incoming boats from the sea and... More

Nice and clean hotel at the riverside in Goteborg. Excellent view from the restaurant on 12th floor. Good food and friendly staff. Rooms are clean and convenient. Unfortunately the air conditioning concept is not flawless. You may need to bring a warm coat with you as it's freezing in the hotel. However, as this hotel is located in Gothenburg you... More

We are on the 5th floor and I write this at 4:00am as it's difficult to sleep with the noise. Some sort of an exhaust keeps running on and off all night. The other thing thats not amusing are the glass doors on toilets which cannot be locked. I have one more night to spend here and I am worried.... More

If you like a hotel with glass- doors to the toilet from the room so you can see your fellow room mates sitting on the toilet and hearing every sound - this is the hotel for you! We booked a family room - two adults and two children and got a "suite". and as much as I love my wife... More

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
