We were two couples traveling and this was a great find. Our room had three separate bedrooms with a living area and bath. The beds were very comfortable and the space was modern and clean. Much better than we expected and an excellent value. The breakfast buffet was wonderful also.

Located a few meters from the water. Great food. Easy parking. Looked complicated to get there on the GPS, but was easy. Grocery store nearby. Nice surroundings, I wanted to explore more than central Gothenburg.

A lot of the accommodation is set in blocks away from the main hotel. I expect some rooms are OK with good views based on other reviewers but we were in a yellow brick building set away from the main hotel. Inside the room was very basic and dreary. I thought of hostel when I walked in. Linoleum on the... More

When we first arrived I loved our student digs style room. Despite the relentless rain I loved the location as it reminded me of a previous life as an army wife walking around a barracks (apparently it was used as this in its past). After dinner is a local restaurant we retired to bed to catch up on the Olympics.... More

Way of beaten track, and need to be fit but interesting walk to town. Even nice walk to ferries to islands. But really more suited to vehicle drivers. Strange arrangements of buildings and nothing else close by . Cheap ( for scandinavia.) clean and well represented.

Our room is in 3rd floor and the view is over the sea around Göteborg. Very nice hotel and very friendly staff. The restaurant is good, possible to sit outside to relax and take a beer or wine or just have dinner. Absolutely worth the money.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a week and had a wonderful stay. We arrived very late in the day and were exhausted, but were cheered up to be greeted by a very friendly, helpful receptionist. Our room was clean and cozy and a nice change from regular hotel rooms, as it had its own kitchen dining area and... More

We booked this hotel only a few hours before arrival. As a tired and dirty we just hoped for easy check-in and something clean to lay on. We got smiling friendly and easy service, super cool two floor room. Very pleased! Restaurant was good too. Some easy options but also some fine ones.

Dockyard Hotel is a low price hotel that offers really good value for money.
