Very close to Scandinaium and Ullevi and the shopping street Kungsportsavenyn. Great breakfast buffét! Nice and clean rooms. They also have a small gym that is quite ok for a hotel. Also a relaxing area with a jacuzzi and sauna.

Opalen has a good location between Ullevi & Liseberg and still close down to Avenyn. The room was clean but maybe not totally up to date. But i heard that they are renovating at the moment. The breakfast is really nice and the bar was ok, although they were out of most tap beer. A big plus for the really... More

The big downside of this hotel are the small rooms (at least ours was really small and just provided us with enough room to enter the badroom). All else, the hotel is very good. The main reason to choose this hotel might be the location. It is located just off center, but close enough to the action to do everything... More

Nice location, quiet, functional, clean, fair price, nice breakfast, great views, very crowded on the weekends. Couldn't find anything wrong all went very smooth and problem free. Will maybe need refurbishment soon but still alright.

The location of the hotel is great, just round the corner is the tram stop and many restaurants and one stop on the tram is the Liseberg Amusement Park. Hotel reception staff were very helpful, and did their best to find us another room when we were given one by the lifts on the night of arrival- nothing was available... More

The room is typicall for scandinavia, they keep everything minimal. The bathroom might need an upgrade, but everything was clean. You will get free Wifi in this hotel. The location of the Hotel is very good. You can take a walk to the exhibition center or to the main street, where all the restaurants are. Furthermore a cinema is on... More

Hard bed, didn't get much sleep. Toilets and bathrooms need a upgrade. At least helpful and nice personal. Parking garage was extremely small and hard to park. If you have a big car don't park there..
