Comfortable and clean rooms, good location and very nice breakfast! Walking distance to city center, restaurants and cinema round the corner. Professional and friendly staff. We had the economy room, which is not big but there is space enough.

Went for a visit to Liseberg and with a 10 minute walk from Scandic Opalen it was a good choice. Well worth its price and with breakfast included as in most Swedish hotels. Breakfast was average. Room was nice and fairly clean. No fridge in the room was a minus though. We did not get a spot in the hotel... More

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Free breakfast was always a pleasure, they had a big variety of great food. The pull out beds were less than desirable, very hard and uncomfortable. We were there with a family of three for the Gothia cup. We stayed on the second floor for 6 days, then upgraded to the 12th floor for... More

Has never paid so much for so little. Small rooms, small bathroom, small bed with single blanket. Thin walls between rooms Average breakfast. The only thing that was good was the location. I can't see no reason of staying here. stay away if possible.

Stayed here for business and it serviced us well, however it was more on the budget side than it leads you to believe from the website. The rooms were manageable and it was in a good location for the congress centre which we needed. I would stay here again for convenience and price for a short business trip, but nothing... More

Hi Harriet K, thank you for taking time to write a review on Tripadvisor. I´m glad to hear that you liked the location of the hotel, if you were to stay with us again I would recommend our top five floors that have panoramic view over the city and are more spacious. I wish you nice summer. Best regards Anna More

Quite ordinary hotel room. Nothing to write home about. The size was acceptable and the bed was wide enough. Not the narrow 90 cm you might find in many hotel rooms, especially in older hotels. This one was at least 120 cm. that's the good part. When I closed the black curtains I quickly found that they do not block... More

We stayed for two nights in slightly upgraded rooms! Clean and spacious rooms on the 13th floor. The staff is very helpful and nice. Sadly we didn't get our room cleaned and that was unexpected. If we had known this would have not been an issue, but since we got no notice this seemed strange. Loud and noisy breakfast but... More

The Location of the hotel is good. Many restaurants and bars you can reach in walking distance. The room was small but clean. The wardrobe is so small that you can hardly get your clothes in. The bath is old but again is was clean. Breakfast was served as a buffet with an average selection of food - nothing special.... More

Hi FrnkS, thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor.I´m happy to hear that the location and cleanliness was at your satisfaction. Unfortunately during summertime our breakfast area is not as cosy as usual since we have a larger amount of guests during breakfast. If you were to stay with us again I would love to... More
