Very nice hotel. Good location, close to the city center. The rooms were very clean, and breakfast were amazing. We loved the spa. If you wanna relax this is the place to go. It’s not the cheapest hotel in Gothenburh, but if you like a little luxery it’s worth the price.

Hotel's Favorite
We spent fantastic days at the Hotel Riverton in Gothenburg. The staff members were outstanding, helpful and worked with strong attitude. Susane, Melinda and Versha are all professionals in the reception. Donato is a fantastic person at the Skybar which had Michelin-star level. The quality of the spa is also world class. Thanks for everything once again.

Great Hotel with a great location. Good service, nice atmosphere, nice rooms, great beds, great breakfast, attention to details. Perfect for a couple, family or in business. We didn’t try the Spa but I can imagine it is great which adds to the whole atmosphere.

I stayed 3 nights. Very Nordic/northern Europe contemporary decor & vibe, für die Deutschsprechend: Innside-ähnlich - bordering on ‚boutique‘ but in a very specific almost minimalist way (which I like). My room was very clean but faced into a somewhat dreary back courtyard. Oh well. Big Minus Point: you can‘t open the windows! - you‘re forced to use the air conditioning (which I generally despise because of its impact on climate etc), but other than that a very nice room, good mattress, clean. Awesome breakfast with all of the Swedish goodies. Fluffy scrambled eggs, crispy bacon (I HATE soggy bacon), everything fresh and beautiful in that great Swedish way. Windows look out over the street & harbor and you‘re on the 1st floor so it‘s a nice view. I wore a mask in all common areas and went to breakfast when they opened. Super easy access to/from the ferries, E45 (towards Trollhättan, Haga; a bit outside the ‘city center‘ but plenty of nice eateries right nearby and a few minute‘s enjoyable walk into the center. As I wrote above it has a similar style & feel to the Innside hotels I‘ve been in which is high praise indeed.

When we first got to the room the hallway lamps didn't work, and when we looked up it was obvious why, they were broken and loose wires were hanging down. The mirror in the hallway was missing, the fridge for the minibar was missing, the top of the glass table was also missing. The roof had cracks in the painting and parts of it were falling down on the bed, and several lampshades were missing. The TV had a big crack in it and was hanging loose with the cables not properly arranged. It looked like there had been a wild party and the place had been thrashed. A room like that should NOT be given to guests. We did get another room as compensation, but nothing else, and the room we got instead also had broken lamps in the hallway. They could at least have offered a visit to the spa or something from the bar as compensation. Also: when we first got the room they said it was the last room they had, then somehow they still had another to move us to?

Dear cb7472020, We are so sorry that you were given a room that was out of order. You are absolutely correct, and the room was absolutely not intended for any guests to stay in. We sincerely apologize for the mistake and for the fact that this was your first impression of our hotel. Regarding the new room, the lamps in the hallway can only be turned on by inserting the key firmly into the keyholder, and are sometimes mistaken for broken due to that. Did you talk to anyone in reception so that we could check them for you? I hope the rest of your stay was pleasant and that you enjoyed your time in Gothenburg. Welcome back! Best regards, Rebecka
