The location is probably the best thing there is to say about this hotel. It is central - close to the central train station, but from here it is downhill. Breakfast is unappetizing and the scrambled eggs can best be described as some sort of undeterminable liquid juice you can take down with a straw - if you dare. We... More

The easiest way to Gothenberg from the airport is by bus. It runs frequently and you stay on until you get to the bus/rail station which is its final stop. There are two Scandic hotels in the centre of Gothenberg. The one you see almost immediately as you walk out of the railway/bus station is the Scandic Europa. To get... More

Dear Debbie_and_family, Thank you for taking the time to give us your review! We are glad to hear that you had a nice stay with us and enjoyed the central location. And it seems like you made most of your trip to Gothenburg. It's a good deal, as you wrote, to use the Gothenburg City pass, to get around in... More

Modern functional rooms. Ok beds. Nice staff, but a bit not welcoming at the breakfast enter. Good breakfast but a bit noicy. I recommend to ask for a room on some of the upper floors to not get disturbed by the traffic. A good hotel for a weekend trip.

I stayed one night, otel closes to central station, shopping malls. Heating system didnt work in room but air condition works in 23 november. Local people might be used to room temp. It should be adjusted in every room.

We have a central heating system in some of the rooms, that you can't regulate manually. We will start renovating the two last floors in December and after that all rooms will have a heating...

A nice enough chain hotel, the best features of which are its proximity to the train station (a couple minutes walk) and its great breakfast. The room was a bit compact, nicely decorated but could have done with thicker curtains (the light came through and I couldn't sleep). The hotel is on a main crossroads so there was also some...

After having walked around in Gothenburg night with a wisdom tooth broken in half and looking for dentists who happens not to be open during weekend nights , I can inform you that if you're looking for help with getting temporary painkillers for an acute condition at Scandic hotel you're in vain.

We stayed for one night at the hotel. Although the personell is friendly and the breakfast good, the place as such is rather depressive. The welness area is a sauna and a bubble pool. The location of the hotel is OK, but that's about it. Paying then close to SEK 3000 for two adults and a child is not competitive... More

I spent two nights at the Scandic Crown while in Gothenburg on a business trip. My first impressions of the hotel were positive: great location, grandiose lobby (for a Swedish hotel) and professional staff. The standard room looked a bit tired though with dust in places and without a mini bar. However, the breakfast was decent with lots of choice.... More

Requested a room with a view towards Polhemsplatsen this time, since I always seem to get a room with view inwards, so that the only thing you see is the other rooms, and was given an upgrade to top floor executive room on 8th floor, with a small balcony (see photos). Big and nice room with a contemporary decoration that... More

A really nice place to stay if you want to be in the center of the town. Good rooms, good breakfast. The only thing that is bad is the cost level if you want to have your car in their garage, way to high cost.
