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.

I spent 2 weeks at Hotel Poseidon while working in Gothenburg. The staff is excellent. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. There are many good pubs and reatuarants very close by. Hotel Poseidon is a great hotel for business or pleasure travel.

Friendly, unpretentious, comfortable and good value, it's in a great location, quiet but a short walk from the city centre, restaurants and to a number of tram lines for exploring further afield. Good breakfasts too. My little top floor room, which seemed to have been recently refurbished, had a lovely rooftop and courtyard view, air conditioning, comfortable bed and a... More

Conveniently located in the city centre is this comfortable hotel with modern rooms. It is walking distance to restaurants and bars and some of the city's tourist attractions. For instance, it is close to the famous Fiskekyrkör or Fish church market. Parking near the hotel is a problem. Hotel staff are friendly and help ful.

Stayed there 2 nights in july with a friend and we loved it! Cosy and clean rooms, best beds ever, helpful and nice staff, tasty breakfast and good location (5-10 min walk to shopping and train/bus station. Lots of good restaurants near by). Couldn't ask for anything more! Would definitely stay here the next time I visit Gothenburg:o)

This small budget hotel is a true gem. My expectations were not super high even though most previous reviews I checked were very positive, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Check-in was totally hassle-free, and the front desk staff were always very helpful and welcoming. It's an old building, so you should expect narrow stairs, a small lift, long corridors... More

First impression : the staffs are so nice, helpful and friendly. I am not so sure if they're upgrading my room but OMG my room was so spacious, cozy, clean, with amazing city view. I love the breakfast and they also give us 24H free coffee, tea, biscuit at the lobby. The location is perfect, nearby city centre. There are... More

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.
