Hotel itself is spacious, the rooms however are exceptional small. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is standard (a bit poor as it comes to bakery). The industrial area is not very motivating, but the hotel's spa is a good compensation.

I stayed at this hotel with my family, we had two double rooms. The rooms were very small but the hotel in general is large and nicely decorated. The breakfast was absolutely fantastic with organic products and "that little extra." We ate food in the restaurant in the evening, it was also very good (be sure to book a table... More

Hotel is quiet, which is a direct consequence of the situation within an industrial area. Meeting rooms and installations are good and personnel at the desk is helpful. the view on the harbour is interesting also, especially if you make use of the hotel restaurant. Points not so good : 1) Very far from Gothenburg city center, so taxi would... More

Dear Pierre, Thanks for Your review on Tripadvisor. A Quick response from us: 1. Our location - It´s true that we are located a bit outside central Gothenburg. On the other side are we closer to most companies like Volvo HQ and Port of Gothenburg. We also have a special deal with a Taxi-Company witch gives our guest a lower... More

Location, location, location! And this place did not have it. It is located in a very industrial area, in no way walking distance to downtown. Taxis is Sweden are hellish expensive as the industry is not regulated - meaning, unless you agree to a price in advance you will get a shock. The hotel itself is delicate and perfect for... More

Needed to be in the location. Very busy hotel for conferences. Yes the rooms are small but I always try to book double rooms even when travelling alone. Staff I found good and helpful and restaurant OK! But if your looking for nightlife wrong location. If I need to be in location again would use the hotel in future.

I can understand the other views on here about the location of this place, but since I have only ever stayed here for business rather than pleasure, the location hasn't been an issue. I have returned to this hotel several times for business and always look forward to it. I find the atmosphere very calming. Some of the bedrooms are... More

My room was dirty, it was hairy and not clean in the bathroom, it's location is terrible - it's next to an industrial area. The rooms are really small, you can't even have your luggage on the floor - it's no room to open it. Entrance to the SPA costs 395 SEK (and thats just for 4 hours), it's not... More

I tried this hotel for a coference with a small group. Some of the conference rooms were really nice, but not all of them, and we had to change conference rooms due to noise as they were renovating the hotel. Some of my colleagues tried the SPA, and they were really satisfied. I was not impressed by the food, neither... More
