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.

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. 😄

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
