“Business like.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Have just returned from a 2 Night stay at the Riverton and was overall impressed with the Hotel.

Check In was Friendly & Professional.

My Room was situated on the 5Th Floor (Queen Deluxe Suite).

I was quite surprised by the size of the room, I would call it compact,but feel that if I had traveled with my Wife. Space would of been quite tight.

Cleanliness was, as expected to a very high Standard.

The Bathroom was exceptional. Glass Finish and a Fine Wet Room.

The Beds were comfortable but instead of a Queen Size Bed , I had 2 x Singles pushed together.
If I had traveled with my Wife this would have been very disappointing,especially for the Price Charged for the Room.

The Weather in Gothenburg was very warm so i did find it extremely strange that the Room had no Air Conditioning??
A fan was provided and you could Open the Window.
But as this is the 21st Century,I believe they should seriously look at this.

I decided to Dine in the Restaurant/Bar this Evening which is situated on the 12th Floor.
The view is Stunning and I highly recommend that if you stay at the Hotel to then do visit.

The Food is exceptional, Having eaten Rich Food over the past days ,I opted for the Angus Burger. I knew I was onto a Winner when the waiter asked how I would like the Burger cooked, and recommended Medium.

Service was excellent,attentive but not overly so.

Breakfast is served on the 1st Floor and was of a Good Standard with Good Choice of Items.

The Riverton is situated about 10 min walk to the Tram Station and Town Square,which has more that enough Bars & Eateries to choose from, the Stena Line Ferry Terminals are also only a Short walk away for Ferries to Kiel (Germany) & Friedickshavin(Denmark)

So overall, a Proffesional place to stay.
Couples if they get there rooms right.
Would i recommend Families. Not Really.

Room Tip: Go for Floor Five, was very quiet.

Was good enough for a business trip, however not really near of the main attractions of the city. Nice rooms, easy access to bus and tram stations. Nice view from the roof. It would be perfect if it had a gym. Excellent breakfast and friendly staff.

I have now stayed twice in this hotel for some business conferences, and I enjoyed my stay. both times I have to stay hotels quite a much for work and have seen this and that. In Riverton my extra point goes to bed in hotelrooms, very comfortable ones! Rooms are very clean and modern, and also neat and white bathroom deserves extra thanks.

Stayed in Riverton for 3 nights on for a residential business conference. The location was nicely within the city and one could walk around and enjoy some history of Gothenburg and find some nice eating joints. The hotel itself has limited dining options and is more of a conference centre. The conference facilities were just about adequate. There was enough space and amenities in the conference room but the acoustics was poor and it was very difficult to hear the speaker at the end of the hall.

The rooms were small and furnished with bare minimum amenities. It is functional and practical with no touch of luxury. There is no health club, gym or swimming pool on this property. The view was terrible overlooking a parking lot.

Breakfast was fine with adequate options but I would have preferred some variety as eating the same breakfast choices everyday became quite boring by the 3rd day. Lunch and dinner at the restaurant was very good and so were the nice cakes and biscuits provided along with tea and coffee. However the restaurant on their top floor was quite noisy and one had to shout to be heard above the din.

In all, it is an adequate business hotel and I would stay here only if I was attending a conference at the same hotel. This is not my recommended choice.

Room Tip: Don't choose rooms overlooking the parking lot!

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights when I was attending a conference in Göteborg. I had a pleasant stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Göteborg for leisure or other activities.
Location:
Location of the hotel is ideal so to speak. You can walk to the hotel from the Central station (if you wish ☺ takes 10 – 15 mins) or you can take bus and get off at Rosenlund and then walk 1 min from there. I was actually taking tram 6 and getting off at Järntorget and from there it is just a 2 mins walk to the hotel.
Room:
I stayed in a single (superior) room in the third floor. The room was spacious enough for me ☺. They have tea-making facility in the room, a working desk, free wifi, a huge TV and a chair. There is also iron (which was a huge plus for me) in the room. They also provide you with adequate toiletries and bathrobe.
Overall sleep quality was really good.
Room cleaning service could have been better. One day they left my window wide open.

Buffet breakfast was really really good. They had lots of (healthy) choices.

All in all it was a really good hotel and i was very satisfied with my stay. Shoot me a pm if you wish to know any other details :-)

A newly renovated hotel. Very fresh and clean. Nice bathroom. Nice amenities in the bathroom. Only water in the minibar though. Big flat TV screen with many channels. Comfortable bed.
Good price. Rich breakfast. Excellent view from the sky-bar.
I liked the hotel and will most probably go back when i come to Göteborg next time.
