Our second stay at Poseidon. It's still a very recommendable Hotel. Not fancy, but nice and clean. Real good high-quality Swedish atmosphere. The morning breakfast buffet is in the light cellar and decorated in a nice Swedish style. Staff is extremely friendly

Cosy and quiet rooms , friendly and helpful personal, average breakfast.The mayor wort-seeing places of Gothenburg within 15 minutes walking distance. Car can be left in public garage about 400m away, which is good for Gothenburg. One shouldn't use the car in the inner city anyway.

We always check with trip advisor first when we travel. And as always we have not been disappointed. This hotel is perfect for a stay in Gothenburg. Good location, wonderful rooms. We had a family room which was spacious and the bathroom modern with a big shower. We would defiantly come back the next time we are in Gothenburg. Not... More

Good central location close to Avenyn and Vasastaden. Friendly and hospitable staff. Breakfast was allright considering the price. Clean Rooms and bathrooms. Automatic soap dispenser in bathroom lived a life of its own. 😄

I've bern guest of this hotel in first days of December. Not so much to say, just excellent! Very kind people at the reception desk, nice, comfortable and clean room with double bed and a nice bathroom with large shower. Typical swedish breakfast with salty and sweet food. Strongly recommended!

This is an older hotel.The room was larger than usual and the free WiFi worked. The double bed was small and there was no air-conditioning. The people at the front desk were very nice and the buffet breakfast in the basement was very extensive and included in the room rate. It was a short walk to the canal where the... More

On the center of Gotengburg, at 200 metres form the bus stop line 2 line 4 and 600 m to the shuttle to Landwetter Airport (not the City Airport that starts only by the Central Station). The structure is old, but the rooms are renewed, nice rooms equipped with TV, clean. Good staff. WiFi free, ask password at the lobby.... More

I love this hotel and I always stay there when I am in Gothenburg. I have stayed there alone or with my partner. I make sure to ask for one of the single top floor rooms as they are really charming. The staff is always professional and friendly, always there to make sure everything is alright. Wifi is always on,... More

Email communication before the trip was promptly returned. the building itself is an older building, which adds to its charm, in my opinion. it is clean and well kept.
