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..

Nice hotel, vey good breakfast (better than other Scandic hotels). Very... More

Good location where you can walk to lots of sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The extensive breakfast buffet was included and had a lot of items. Rooms were clean and nice. We would definitely use this hotel again.

When we travel in Scandinavia, we always stay at a Scandic hotel because we know that they offer a good quality for the money. They also have quite good handicap rooms, although it is some times difficult to wash your hands when you are in a wheelchair. Scandic got quite a few hotels in Gothenburg and Opalen is one of...

All Scandic hotels have very high standard and excellent front desk service, Opalen does not fail. Breakfast is extensive and regular fine Scandic standard. Good, large and quiet rooms. This is a good hotel for visiting the exhibition center or Scandinavium sport arena, just a few hundred meters away. The only thing I miss is more parking spaces, especially when... More

Hotel provided a very comfortable, well appointed room, with floor to ceiling windows that afforded outstanding views of the city (9th floor). Morning breakfast was abundant and the coffee and fruit bowl on the mezzanine level was welcome by us early risers. Hotel staff was very friendly, bi-lingual and efficient. Late check-out was cheerfully granted (by Robert!) and checkin/check out... More
