We liked the ambience in the hotel and their late afternoon delicious, complementary pastries. We had room #7 with its comfortable bed, windows that open and its great location.The breakfast buffet was generous & good with warm, friendly staff making sure everyone had what they wished. It might be good for you to know that there is no elevator in this small hotel so you will have to carry your luggage up a flight or 2 (depending on where your room is located). Hint: if you are driving yourself, you'll be so happy if you reserve one of the 5 parking spots when you make your booking! For a very nearby evening meal: Great Italian restaurant ‘Sorellina’ a couple of minutes’ walk away filled with great food, great wine, and friendly locals. It is very busy but a call from the receptionist will secure you a table! Also there is a great mall just across the street. There is a lot of construction going on around the Old Town so it might be good to ask the hotel for current driving directions about how to reach the hotel. Our GPS (satnav) almost had a breakdown trying to get us there. Finally a kind stranger told us just to drive slowly down the pedestrian walkway (a city street wide) or we would never get there, so we did - through the throng of pedestrians.

Booked for a short stay in Gothenburg we found the hotel well placed centrally making the whole central area very walkable. A little difficult to navigate to if arriving by car as we did, but the satnav was spot on. Off street parking available for 5 cars (pre-booking essential) but beware a narrow entrance. Rooms were well appointed albeit a modest size. Breakfast was very good and in the adjoining cafe where hotel guests attracted a 25% discount on all other meals and drinks taken there.

We very much enjoyed our two night stay at hotel vanilla. Situated on a nice quiet street, the sleep quality was excellent due to the bed being one of the most comfortable I've ever stayed in at a hotel. The staff were always very friendly and the breakfast was very good. Location wise, it's close to all the shopping areas, but about a 20 minute walk to Haga and Linne.

An excellent location just a short walk from the train station and many places of interest.It is in a mainly shopping area with little traffic so fairly quiet. The rooms are above the Cafe Vanilla where a buffet breakfast is served before it opens to the public. There was a good selection of foods on offer. The main entrance is via an archway with three steps up to the door.There is no lift just a winding staircase to the Reception desk where there was a warm welcome.This area was bright and well decorated. I booked a single room and it was much bigger than expected with an equally large en suite. I would return to stay here if visiting the city again.

We enjoyed a wonderful night in this spot. The hotel is on the second floor of this old, but thoroughly modernized and renovated, building in the heart of historic Gothenberg. The staff were friendly and accommodating and - because this is Scandinavia - they speak perfect English! The breakfast (included) was substantial and delicious - served in the lovely cafe on the ground level of this building. Would definitely stay here again in the future and highly recommend it for fans of smaller and more intimate hotels.
