4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel has some noisy rooms close to the ventilation shafts. I ended up in one of them and while I managed to fall asleep, I woke up around 3am. By 4 am I went down to the lobby and without any discussion, they found me a new room that was nice and quiet. Many thanks to the hotel staff.... More

Location is excellent, as is refurbishment. Rubinen does everything that you would ask of it! Clean, tidy functional rooms, good wifi, excellent breakfasts and a splendid roof top bar, but what was remarkable was the level of service from the Front Office staff. It was exceptional. During my stay I had numerous questions and they were all fielded extremely well... More

The hotel is located at the Kungsportavenue with a lot of nice restaurants around it. The recent renovations made it a very nice hotel. The rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The city centre is on walking distance from the hotel.

Had a stay here with another family in June. Hotel is central at Avenyn and close to Gothenburgs attractions. Hotel is good. Reception is new and fresh and staff is helpful (what you expect but nothing that surprises you). The room standard depends on where your room is. Our family friends got a new fresh room and we got one... More

Loved this hotel. From the groovy foyer and downstairs bar to the rooftop sunset bar. The rooms were good and even had windows that open (what a treat). Wifi was strong and we had no complaints at all.. The staff as well were uber friendly and helpful.. Would definitely stay here again, and consider staying at other Scandic hotels.

If you don't require atmosphere the Scandic Ruby might be a practical alternative. Be sure to reserve a room facing the street; the ones facing inside can bring on any latent claustrophobia you may have. The neighborhood is interesting, and major cultural institutions -- art museum, theaters, concert hall, are a ten-minute walk way. The staff is helpful when asked,... More

We arrived in the midst of a massive IT failure during which it was hard for the staff to check people in. The queue was long and not very happy. I guess as a result of the IT failure, the TV was out as well. In addition, the restaurant and bar surprised both the guests and the staff by closing... More

Was there for only one night, but was pleasantly surprised. Nice big room, clean with airco and perfect Wifi. The people at the reception were very friendly and willing to help. Breakfast had a lot of choice, you could find everything you could need.
