We slept one night and I really like the room and view! The bed was normal, not good not bad. close to the cinema! Like that, next time movie! Recommend this hotel. Good area with gym and spa. Everything you need for a comfortable stay.

a convention in the town caused us to get a superior room on one of the top floors What a view! My wife was a bit scared to walk around the bed since the window goes all the way down to the floor. A little bit of shame I couldn't adjust the heat in the room (couldn't find any) Both... More

Taxi booked night before, but was even not necessary according reception. Waited for 10 minutes, no taxi. I asked reception to call Taxi Goteborg. They could not reach them, the line was busy? I than spoke with the concierge of the taxi company in the hotel. He could not help and had no clue when the taxi would arrive. So... More

After a long international flight I arrived very late in the evening / early morning... I wish I hadn't.. Talk about a pokey single room. I swear the bed was like a camp bed and had to double check just in case I was jet lagged and seeing things.. It's central, but for the price, look somewhere else. I forgot... More

Have stayed at Hotel Opalen several times (only on the newly built top floors). Good prices if you see to the standard and location of the hotel. The rooms are really nice and you get a good view of part of the city. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant is OK. Friendly and professional staff. The only thing that I... More

The hotel has really friendly staff who are all fluent in English. It is "Close" to the airport (in the "outskirts" of the city, closest to the airport (which isn´t close to the city)). The top floors have the best view. The toiletries are really good too. The bar isn´t super lively, but it is a good place where to... More

This hotel is ideal if you want to be close to Liseberg, Ullevi, Scandinavium and Svenska mässan, all within a 5 min walk. There is very few restaurants/bars that we saw around, which is probably the downside of the area being quiet and mostly residential (if you prefer a buzzing city center that is) but there is a tram stop...
