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.

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

The staff is always professional and friendly, always there to make sure everything is alright. Wifi is always on,... 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?
