The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel rooms were average at best. The bathroom was small. I could wash my hair, sit on the toilet and brush my teeth at the same time.

We had to take a tram to get to the downtown.

Tip for the hotel. Loved their attempt to do waffles, but get the devices in the USA. The USA devices flip over and cook the waffles more evenly.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Dear guest,

thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us.

Spar Hotel Majorna is located about 3km from the centralstation, the tram stops just 30meters from the hotel, and the tram ride takes about 10minutes to city centre.

Regarding your comments about the room, we have six different room types to choose from, ranging from 12sqm to 80sqm, so perhaps we can find a larger room for your next visit that better suits your needs.

I am sorry you did not appreciate our waffles, they are normally very appreciated. Since the devices are frequently used we constantly exchange them, and we´ve tried an Belgian device but in the end decided to keep the same as we currently have which is a Dualit.

Thank you for your positive comments regarding our staff.

Kind regards

Okej it's not right in town were all the hussle and bussle are but that's fine.The tram nr.3 or nr.9 takes you in around 15 minutes in to Nordstan were all the shopping are under one roof and many more around town. The hotel was very clean and comfy. free car-parking garage and free wi-fi. Staff very nice and helpful. Breakfast,oh what a breakfast and yes you make your own waffles( the batter is made in a jug) you can really fill yourself up and last to dinner!
Gothenburg is a lovely town with lot of sights to visit and easy to walk around(wear comfy shoes) my favorite thing to do is to go with the "Paddan boat" it takes you around for 50min.with a guide who tell you a bit about Gothenburg city. They all speak good english everywhere.
We definitely staying in this hotel again when coming to Gothenburg,Sweden.

It is walking distance to the ship dock in gothebrg. Travelled there from Denmark. The cruise ride is great and so is the hotel. It is close to some good restaurants. The breakfast spread is good. Rooms are great and really liked the bed which is very comfy.

Room Tip: All are good

Arriving by taxi from airport as i had no clue to as where the hotel was. The cost was 510 SEK for the trip (standard rate). Reception personell was helpful advising for alternative transport with tram only 250 meters from hotel. Tickets to be purchased at kiosk close to stop station of tram, cost is 160 SEK for 3 days or 80 SEK for one day. Taxi from center to hotel is very expensive, runs to a cost of approximately 200-250 SEK, so unless you need it, take the tram, runs about every 10 -15 minutes (routes 3 and 5, and 5 takes the shortest time to center, but marginal difference). Hoetl rooms are clean and nicely organized with free Wi-Fi available. Dinner options are limited, but there are some cafes cloase by, or you make dinner arrangements in center. Bar is small, but ok for a night cap. Lots of workers on the hotel while i was there, assume corporate rates are very favourable for companies to use hotel for its workers while staying in the city.
Breakfast ok, nothing special, but covers most needs i think.
Hotel a bit too far away for me, next time would try Garda hotel of Spar chain.
Recommend hotel for stay, no problems, value for money.

Room Tip: There are rooms towards the main street, and if you need to have window open, noise from tram can gi...

Dear guest,

thank you for your positive comments regarding your stay.

Since the tram stops just outside the hotel (30meters) it is very convenient and the cheapest way to get around. But as you mention, maybe our sisterhotel in Gårda would suit your needs better for your next visit. We look forward seeing you there.

Welcome back!

In short, this hotel really delivers. Nice and comfortable rooms, great breakfast (included), free parking in a private garage, free wifi, and overall a fresh feeling. It's not located in the city centre but not far away. But I think the part of town called Majorna (where the hotel is located) is also well worth seeing. The tram passes outside the hotel so transportation is quite easy. We payed 895 SEK for a triple room (two nights), a good price if you compare it with prices at the big chains like Scandic, Radisson, etc. In my view, this was a bargain, and I would return to this hotel on my next visit to Gothenburg.

This hotel is located in Majorna in Gothenburg. For us this is convenient, since our business partner's office is located nearby. However, it is a few km from the city centre, but the tramstop is only 50-100 m away. The Majorna area was once a working class district, but lots of construction and renovation work has been done since. it is now a popular area for families with kids, and has some shops, lots of cafés, parks, restaurants, pubs etc. Several of the restaurants are actually really good, and one of Gothenburg's best restaurants, Sjömagasinet, is not far away. The hotel also has an underground parking garage, which is convenient. Rooms are Bright, large and Clean. Service is good. Breakfast is ample. It´s great value for money! However, we noticed that is shown incorrectly on the map. The address is correct, Karl Johansgatan, and the hotel is located across the street from Karl Johans Church, close to the greek restaurant Efesos, not far from Chapmanstorg tram station, and not at all in the area shown in the map!
