Location of this hotel is a blessing and a curse. We had real noisy room. The front desk lady was unable to help. Otherwise, there is no real issues. Oh! the stairs to upper flights are true vertical.

The hotel is easy to find - especially if you get the airport bus into Gothenburg, as it only a few minutes away from the stop, and so is really central. Best rooms are on the top floor, under the roof. We started off on the main floor, near to reception in a Grand Lit Superior room (that being what we paid for in advance). Although that room was large, it was cold and the person working on evening reception (although really helpful) didn't know how to get the heating working (the radiators were all on but no heat in them). Also the central a/c was on - and blowing cold air. Why? That couldn't be turned off, so we eventually swapped rooms - up to the second floor. Although that room was significantly smaller (looking at the website it was a Double Room Superior as it certainly could not be described as 'spacious' - barely any room between the bed and the wardrobe on one side), it was more characterful, and warmer. Still had central air on though. Needless to say, no refund for the difference in room price - so with that and the hassle of changing rooms, I'm not giving 5 stars. Breakfast is very good - just watch when you go as it can get incredibly busy and the staff, despite working mighty hard, don't have time to clear up - so one morning there were a lot of dirty plates/cups stacked up on tables, meaning they couldn't be used, thereby reducing seating. Once the rush was over, however, it was much better. We opted for the wine and fruit deal one evening, which was great - lovely fruit platter, and the fizz was good, too. Overall, an excellent base for exploring Gothenburg.

this was a very charming hotel and very comfortable. There is a lovely breakfast buffet in the morning at the restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel. The rooms are light and airy and everything was great. just know there is no elevator so you must carry your luggage upstairs. For me it was up two flights. the location of the hotel was fantastic! Walking distance from everything in downtown Gothenburg and many many restaurants. I had a fantastic stay at this hotel and highly recommend.

If you are looking for a charming small hotel in a historic building with a great location in Göteborg, look no further - just make your way to the Hotel Vanilla. What you will see first is the courtyard, which invites you to sit down at relax with a coffee and a snack (fika, as the Swedes call it). Reception is one level up, and you will be welcomed with a smile. All the staff members are very pleasant and extremely efficient. The rooms are of different sizes, but very attractive and comfortable. The breakfast buffet, which is included in the price, is exceptionally good. Just one drawback - as the staircase is steep and there is no lift, this is not an appropriate hotel for people with mobility problems. On a personal note, I would like to deeply thank Elise for her assistance and kindness in an emergency.
