There is a small lobby and they offer free coffee or tea, The building is old from the 1890s but is well kept. We had an... More

Fantastic hotel, great rooms. Very well situated for discovering Gothenburg. The staff were very helpful in helping us sort out our trips; discovering the trams, ferries and very good restaurants. The rooms are quiet, comfortable and a good size. The buffet breakfast is excellent. Would recommend this to anyone.

This is a very good value for money! The rooms are clean, quite big and quiet. Good bathroom (shower) and comfortable beds. Perfectly located within walking distance of pretty much everything and good connections to the whole city with tram. Helpful personal and friendly atmosphere. It's nothing luxurious but for the price you're paying it will be hard to find... More

Such a great selection and it had a very relaxed feel, like it was your own kitchen. Room was very clean and tidied daily. For the price, this can't be beaten!... More

A very reasonably priced hotel centrally located between the city center and the old town. The hotel staff are exceptionally helpful for all requests. The rooms are simple but completely adequate. Came back a second night.

With hotels in Gothenburg in general being on the expensive side, the Poseidon was an amazing deal. The room, bathroom, and public areas were very clean and quiet. The building itself has a nice character to it, making it feel more like a boutique hotel rather than a budget-friendly find. I'd only stayed one night, and I would definitely stay... More

Weekend break to watch the Americas Cup sailing event. Arrived about 10.30 with reception more than happy to check if room was ready but as it wasn't volunteered to store luggage. Local map provided with some helpful directions. Hotel ideally positioned for us but would also suit those keen on retail therapy and many of Gothenberg's places of interest within... More

The hotel was nice and the staff was very service-minded. The room was nothing special, but it was nice. The only problem was that the room didn't have air condition and it was very hard to sleep when it was so warm outside.
