“One of the better Scandics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Great location and very funky hotel. However is still a Scandics so the average room has one small towel per person and shampoo and soap in dispensers on the wall. It's also a place with the shower bathrooms ie have a shower and soak the place! But under floor heating dries it up for your next visit! Quick check in and out. Decent wifi.

Good location for Art Galleries, Museums and good choice of restaurants nearby. No shortage of great coffee shops either and a 10 minute walk gets you down to the centre and some great shopping and even more coffee shops.
The hotel bar offers some good dining options from the"build your own" meal to evening specials of a more traditional nature. The breakfast buffet offers a great selection, with special diets catered for too. You'd be hard put not to
find something you liked.The room was fine as rooms go, but overlooked the business centre,so we didn't have any natural light.Rooms on the higher floors would probably be better in that respect- just avoid "Red warning triangle". The red theme is quirky, but you probably wouldn't forget which room was yours.

The new renovation of the breakfast room on the first floor is super. The warm breakfast is very welcome in the cold months. One of my favorite reasonably priced hotels in Gothenburg. Good access to the airport shuttle bus stop, but a bit of a walk to the City centre. Overall, an enjoyable stay.

Enjoyed my visit to Gothenburg, a nice city with very few tourists, great shopping and good food. hotel is centrally located in the center of the city. Easy to walk to Christmas market in Liseberg, a little further to the train station but still very doable, even with luggage. Hotel rooms were a bit small and our bed was a full size and against the wall. So, be sure an ask for a room with a larger bed if that's an issue for you. Breakfast was very good, it was an all you can eat buffet including eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, cereal, bread, fruit, european pancakes (crepes) etc. We had a drink on the rooftop bar, which was quite nice. They had put sheep skin rugs on the chairs and provided blankets, so it was reasonable even on a chilly November evening. Drinks were a bit expensive - I believe $35.66 for a glass of wine and a vodka gimlet, so be warned. We had lunch at the Beerista which is a block from the hotel and it was delicious - pork, gravy and potatoes and soft drink for $10. Great deal there.

Hotel clean, fitness centre good, overall rate and price/quality good.
At the check-out the big minus for the non acceprtance of my Mastercad and Visa.
No reasonable explaination was provided.
Luckily I had also an AMEX.
On their site I couldn't find any mail address to forward my complain.

Dear Davide P,

Thank you for your nice review!
I am very confused to hear about your Visa/Mastercard since we do accept all types of credit cards.
There must have been some problem with the connection to the bank or something like that. Unfortunately our systems does not say the specific reason why it does not work sometimes and therefor it is hard for the receptionists to know as well. Sorry for not making that clear to you.

I hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Rubinen next time you okan to visit Gothenburg!

Have a great weekend!

Best regards,
Carin V

Friendly staff, nice rooms, delicious breakfast!
We also enjoyed the spa during our stay.
Have a dinner or a glass at the bar/restaurant, the dishes were qualitative!
Hotel in downtown which is very convenient.
