The hotel has a great location for visitors to the city, especially those in town for the university. The breakfast is by far the best part. Nice breads, cheeses, and meats. They also includes some hot items like eggs and bacon. The room was small but has all the necessities. Good for solo business travel.

It is all about expectations. If you are backpacker and just want a place, ANY place, in a good location, you won't be that disappointed. But as a guest of the University of Gothenburg who has been invited to give a full day of lectures,I found this accommodation beyond shocking. How would I describe this place? It reminds me of...

This was the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in in Sweden. It was dirty, with nasty, old, filthy carpets, stained walls and chipped furniture. My room smelt like a doss house. There was noisy construction work and the whole place felt like a building site. The wifi didn't work in my room. Staff were not much in evidence... More

The hotel is placed about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Gothenburg. It's a tram line around the corner that goes to the centre and rail station. Many fine restaurants nearby. The hotel is old, but I found the room very cosy and spacious.

the hotel is in a terrific position, just a mere stroll away from all you want to see in the city center. The room are clean and simple, functional and fully equipped. Personnel is very nice, the breakfadt offers a quite wide choice of fresh products. I can't but reccomend it to whoever needs to spend some nights in this... More

In general, it is to be considered the lower limit for a three star hotel. The whole structure needs to be refurbished; rooms are definitely old, with the only exception of a flat screen TV of good quality, the bathroom is in the dimension of one in a cabin on board a ship! Breakfast room is nothing but sad, though... More

We stayed for one night in a twin room (2 separate beds and a sofa bed). The room was small, if we had used the sofa bed we would have to crawl around over the beds. The bath room was very spacious though. The room interior is OK but the corridor and the stairs look a bit shady. The beds... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights visiting our son who now lives in the city. The room was not over-large but adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No tea/coffee facilities in the bedroom, though there is a coffee machine, free to use, in the lobby. There is a basic lounge area. Breakfast is a standard... More

The rooms at this hotel are small and the breakfast room and food is well below par. Even though we called to indicate a late arrival we were put in a terrible room on the top floor. This was made up for by the good location and the very friendly staff.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. the hotel's location is excellent with just 10 mins walk to almost all major tourist attractions. There are lot of nice restaurants nearby and also in adjacent street (Vasagatan). You can walk to Haga (the old town) and most trams pass by from Vasagatan. The hotel staff was very friendly and always... More
