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.

Stayed one night for a business trip. The hotel is located next to Gothenburg's main street with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. The rooms are quite small but well thought through and comfy. Smart things here and there such as a plug to connect your computer to the TV. Average breakfast, the big "thing" is their rooftop lounge style... More

Scandic Rubinen has a great location right on the No 1 Esplanade "Avenyn" in Gothenburg. When we visited the hotel it was still under renovation, which meant that some parts of the hotel were closed off, e.g. the sauna area and the sky bar were not yet open. Probably it will be very nice when everything is ready (check if... More

Our room (family) was newly renovated, fresh and clean. Breakfast was good as always in Scandic hotels. This hotel is smokefree, and thats ok, but what I do not understand is why the streetbar terrace is smokefree??? Very disappointing! So all smokers: Go and buy your drink at another bar where you are allowed to have a cigarette as well!... More
