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. I took a single room, and the size was excellent for one person. free wifi and tv helped pass... More

Very central in Gothenburg. Walking distance to everywhere. Very good breakfast. Friendly staff. Good bed, even though it was a bit narrow. Newly decorated bathroom. Decent price. What more can you ask for?

Stayed here for 5 nights while in Gothenburg for a conference. The location is great - a short walk from the main areas (Avenue, Haga) but with much cheaper bars and restaurants on your doorstep. The room was a good size with a nice shower and it was all very clean (impressively so given that there was lots of building... More

My friend and I had a lovely 2-night stay at the Poseidon hotel in Gothenburg. We were given a large double room as we arrived early in the day. This room was on the 2nd floor and absolutely perfect. Excellent breakfast buffet. Added bonus was the free tea/coffee etc in the lobby at all times. Friendly and very helpful staff.... More

Very nice place! Old building, nicely renovated and decorated. Brand-new bathroom. Relaxed / family atmosphere. In the heart of the city. Recommend it to both, tourist and business travellers, who like to enjoy a smaller and individual hotel at a fair price.

location was good, close to the train station. The breakfast was ok, although some more fresh fruit wouldn´t hurt. They did not clean our room properly during the 3 nights we stayed there. Wi-fi in the room is NOT working at all, maybe you can load a page or two and then it stops working altogether. Renovation works are going... More
