“Clean, simple hotel in a good and central location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

A visit to Liseberg made us look for a hotel close by. This one is in central location with a short walk to Göta place and Avenyn. Also very close to the university area.

The hotel is simple and clean, not very modern. Prices are said to be moderate in other reviews, but relatively high in our opinion. Late booking and the location close to Liseberg may explain it.

Average size rooms, nothing extra really. Good beds, Hästens brand. Small bathroom. Small LCD tv with limited selection of channels. Room 551 faced the street, and may experience some noise. But nice to have views out towards the street life,

Breakfast with good selection of bread and spreads. Yoghurt, musli etc. 3 filter coffee types. No freshly squeezed juice.

I spend 4 nights there and the beds was okay, not really comfy but good enough to ensure a descent nights sleep. The location is really good and you have a short walk to "Avenyen" a famous street with lots of bars and restaurants. The hotel served a good breakfast buffet but that is also the only meals you can get there. Staff was not super friendly but not unpleasant.

The Hotel Lorensburg is an old-fashioned hotel with first-rate service. It is in an excellent location, especially for those visiting the university.
Americans and others accustomed to 4* hotels should note a few things:

o the rooms are very small, as is the bathroom, and the twin bed.
o Minimal amenities in room: one small bath towel, one hand towel. The shower is just a curtained off part of the bathroom. Supplied soap and shampoo are liquids dispensed from wall fixtures.

A few pluses:

o Good television.
o Good, free wireless throughout.
o Good free breakfast.

Lorensberg hotel is suitably located near the center of Gothenburg, really close to Korsvagen station (which is a central station for trams and buses, including the one coming from the airport).
- The room was rather small but light and clean. Wireless internet connection is available in all rooms, free of charge and instructions are included in a leaflet.
- The desk was really comfortable, especially for me who spent many hours working with my laptop.
- The room had an amazing number of power outlets (6-7), so there was no problem charging my devices.
- Bathroom contained the basics, including aloe liquid soap and bathing gel.
- The mini bar only contains a small bottle of sparkling water and a chocolate bar, which are also complimentary - it was the first time that I saw such thing and it was really appreciated!
- Breakfast was nice, including all the basics. I believe that it could be supported by a wider variety of sweet items, as there was only cake and jam during the days that I spent there.
- The staff was always friendly and offered to help in various cases. In addition, I had an excellent communication via email with the administration of the hotel; all replies were helpful and prompt.

The only con that I can think of was the price, as it costed almost 130 euros per night for a single room with breakfast (special price due to a conference); I believe that for a three star hotel the price was above average, even for the Swedish standards. However, I was absolutely pleased in all aspects by its services and facilities so I would visit it again in the future if I had the option!

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the hotel's entrance have a view of the avenue, which was never noisy!

Nearby the city center. Established in the 40's, but renovated. Small, but clean rooms. Good breakfast. Wifi foc. TV with few channels (may improve). Some Restaurants around, but go there before 20:30 because they close quite early.

I stayed in lorensberg during a one week stay for a conference meeting. This is a cozy hotel, has all the basics, people at reception are friendly. There is complimentary coffee and cookies in the lobby. Internet connection was very good. Breakfast is ok for almost any tastes. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are plenty nearby. The area is so beautiful and there is a small walk to the station. The hotel is very silent and feels like home. It was a pleasent stay but was expensive for the service.
