“A very good option for long term stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

-family friendly hotel
-clean rooms and very spacious (2 types of rooms with kitchenette)
-Spacious bathrooms-showers, suitable for disable people
-2 supermarkets nearby (Willy's is located at hotel's ground floor -a more affordable option- and ICA is opposite the highway, inside the mall.
-The hotel is located bit far from city's centre, appr. 25 min walking distance and 10 min. by tram.
-Breakfast is Scandinavian therefore will not satisfy the southern Europeans. Cleanliness at the restaurant is also an issue but to those who have lived for some years in Sweden this is a common problem!

If you don't have to or want to stay downtown, this hotel is a good choice. The rooms are spacious and modern. Internet is complimentary. Parking options and access to the E6 freeway is also good. Breakfast was OK.

Room Tip: High floor for view towards Liseberg and downlown

Stayed over in Mektagonen during a business meeting in Gothenburg and was very pleased with the overall accomodation. Breakfast was a positive surprise and rooms were very clean and spacious. However, if I'd need to give one critical feedback it would be to change the pillows in the beds (or at least have multiple choices of thickness/softness).

I organised a one week workshop for 30 people.
The rooms are cleaned, comfortable and very big. A bit more light in the bathroom would help when shaving...
The meeting room was very comfortable and fully equipped.
Hotel staff was friendly and very reactive to every request.
The only negaitve experience was with the restaurant.
Food is good, but the service is extremely long and choice in the menu quite limited.

We stayed here in the December of 2013, we loved the hotel a lot since our daughter prefer food that we prepare for her. The room had a small kitchenette, and we where able to just go into the supermarket located outside the main entrance to the hotel. The hotel itself looks like an reused office building, and there was some noise from a truck outside one morning. My daughter and wife loved this hotel since it was close to the tram stop (just outside the hotel). I enjoyed the breakfast in the dining area, the food seemed clean and tasted nice for me. My daughter just tasted the waffel, and she liked that one :)

If you prefer regular hotels with fancy art, small rooms, nice restaurants, closer to the city and such then I would recommend you to book one of the hotels closer to the city.

The parking is extra, but it is very safe since it is and locked area.

We will book this hotel next time.

Room Tip: There are some "SCANDINAVIAN 3 NIGHTS HOLIDAY SPECIAL" offerings in this hotel, that make...

For medical reasons, I have to travel to Gothenburg many times. Since 2011, they are already 9 visits, and counting. 8 of them were at Metkagonen Hotel.

Perfect service, kitchenette in the room and supermarket on the ground floor, comfortable and spacious room. It's my home in Sweden... :)
