“Fantastic apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Thank you to all the staff at the Riverton who looked after us so well.
My family and I had a wonderful stay in the 2 bed apartment which was huge. The location of the Riverton is excellent within easy walking distance to Haga and the city centre. We also enjoyed the buffet breakfast which had lots of choice.

I will certainly stay at the Riverton the next time I visit Gothenburg.

I was pleasantly surprised of this hotel. I more or less selected the cheapest I could find in the area within only a few days notice. It felt modern, clean and tidy, and the staff were all very nice. I really appreciated the breakfast buffet which had all the basics. The street outside is rather calm even though the hotel is centrally located. I would definitely return!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
I can take the opportunity to inform you that the outside area is about to change and it's going to be less "industrial" outside.
We really hope that you will enjoy that!
Welcome back to us and have a great summer

Clean, quiet and well mannered hotel. Very much a business persons hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful in every way. Could not fault out stay there in any way. Great breakfast buffet as well!!!

Highly recommended for those who do not mind a bit of a walk into the old town cafe/restaurant scene.

Stayed one night at this hotel. We decided to park our car in one of the 25 free parkinglots just outside the entrance. Were nicely welcomed by the receptionist, and promptly offered an upgrade to our chosen room. The room itself was nice and tidy, with really comfortable beds. Our room was to the back of the hotel, facing a backstreet, but quite ok, especially as it is more silent with less traffic. Tee and coffee, sparkling water, large tv etc. Visited the skybar in the evening, also nice, with a great wiew towards the harbour, expensive drinks though! Breakfast the following morning was lovely, all we could have wished for, except perhaps pastries... Could well return for my next visit!

Room Tip: Would expect all rooms to be equally nice!

Stayed for two nights during a conference. The hotel was recommended by the host.

I got a single bedroom with ocean view on the fifth floor. The room was fresh and apparently some of the floors have been renovated recently. The style is minimalistic and scandinavian, for instance the sink was made of glass.

Breakfast was overall good (no extra charge as is common in Sweden). One thing that should be mentioned is the service. I forgot my toothpaste so the next morning I went down to get some at the desk. Unfortunately they were out and one of the girls confessed she had brought her own toothpaste but had lent it out to another guest just before I got there. Later it turned out that the guest was one of my colleagues :)

Overall, if you just want to have an easy choice of a good hotel if you travel to Gothenburg, this is a it.

I booked a easter special rate through the hotels website, and first moved in to a "normal" family room, normally sized, with a sofa, doublebed and pretty nice view. But then, my bathroom was cold, and i asked what could be done about that. I requested for a heater, so it wouldn't be cold in the morning... (the bathroom is supposed to be heated through the bedroom's temperature, - a slightly strange technical arrangement, i'd say) - instead of just giving me the heater the nice lady at the reception smiled an took me upstairs to the 11th floor and opened the largest suite in the house for me - room 1110. It was a sunny day, and the light shines in through 2 big windows, and lights up a 45sqm room with white mies van der rohe chair and leather sofa, a cosy bed, with feather topper (really convenient), a glass shower and bathroom in the room. I was stunned by the friendly gesture! - The room's atmosphere was beautiful, open and bright and warm - and so was the bathroom, maybe due to the fact, that the glassdoor does not shut out the rooms climate completely. - the rest of the bath was anyway in the room... - there is little shelf space. and no table for the suitcase. but a nespresso machine and mineralwater for free. - saturday night the bar, which is just above the room, was pretty noisy, but just around 1h, then it stopped. - friday night i didn't hear them at all. the sky bar is nice, again friendly staff! - breakfast has been ok, huge choice for cheese and fresh ham. coffee is terrible, - compared to the fact that Sweden is a nation that usually knows how coffee should taste... --- i am very grateful to the kind and helpful staff that tried to make my stay enjoyable - and they succeeded!! I will try to go back there for my next stay in Gothenborg.

Room Tip: 1110 is a gorgeous suite!! - Try to be on a higher floor for the beautiful view over harbour!
