Stayed here alone in late July on a puppy-viewing trip; Staff were quick, friendly and professional.
The hotel is a traditional square building with an open center, with solid, old-fashioned decor and furniture. I had a small single facing the courtyard. It was quiet; the bed was excellent, the hot water instant and consistent. The furnishings were attractive and solid - the easy chair was really comfortable, for example. The reading light gave plenty of light to read by. The bath towel were large, but rather thin and worn.
On a muggy day at the end of July the room was very stuffy, and there wasn't much air moving in the courtyard - and no air conditioning. Electric fans were available in reception, however.
The hotel is right next to the Central Train station, and very convenient to a large mall, Nordstan, and to a beautiful (free access) botanical garden with both rosarium, glass house and a lovely walk along the canal.
Don't choose this hotel if you are driving a car and have small children and their paraphenalia to manage, or lots of luggage. The hotel lists itself with "parking for a nominal fee" but the parking is in the garage of the nearest mall. It is a bit complicated to find by car from the hotel, and if you miss a turn you may be funneled on to a motorway and take an involuntary 15 minute drive. Once safely parked, it is a bit of a trek requiring a trip in a lift, a walk through part of the mall, and several streets to cross before you are back at the hotel. You are also advised to leave no valuables in the car and the glovebox open, as Gothenburg has a high rate of thefts from parked cars. On the plus side, there are a few free spaces right in front of the hotel where you can put the car while you check in; the desk personnel are happy to show you where you can leave your luggage - or let you put it in your room before you move the car - so you don't have to carry it all, and you can of course reverse the process when you check out.
Breakfast was a well-assorted scandinavian style buffet, in a rather gloomy high-ceilinged room - but you could also take your plate right out the door to cafe tables set out on the busy square.
I especially appreciated the fruit, water, tea and coffee set out in the lobby for guests to help themselves.
