A day in Radical Collaboration learning. An excellent spot and really good conference rooms. Good service with nice breakfast buffet and in between snacks. The lunchroom and lunch buffet with choices of fish, meat or vegetarian food was lovely. A well sorted salad buffet is also included and followed with a wide choice of pudding tea and coffee. Well worth... More

Parking available but quite expensive at about 250SEK per night. - Reception staff was friendly and helpful. - Room was perfectly fine with two beds and an armchair bed along with... More

Prices for hotels in Gothenburg in general were not cheap, this cost us around £120 for one night... the check-in was designated at 1400, but the room wasn't ready until 40 minutes later, not a big deal, but there were four other groups of guests with the same problem... an apology would have sufficed but the receptionist just lie and...

Have tried other Scandic and this one was very dissapointing. The room was so small, felt old and almost dirty. The room had permanent lights that made sleeping hard. The breakfast was very good, fresh and had a lot of options.

We spent 4 nights in Scandic Opalen, in superior plus room. Hotel is quite OK, however, there were some minor issues. Hotel is conveniently located, in the middle of the entertainment district of Gothenburg, next to Avenyn, Liseberg and Scandinavium. It is a plus, but also a minus, because the hotel lobby is like a railway station – all day... More

I normally spend 30-40 nights per year on various Scandic hotels in Scandinavia. This was a so called "free night" using loyalty points. We were passing through Gothenburg on our final days of our holidays and our anniversary.To go out for dinner, do some shopping etc. Arriving we first get a double room with a queen size bed. The room... More

Having not booked a hotel until we landed we picked this hotel up for around £70 a night. The hotel manager was willing to match the price we found online for us to book directly with him. The reception staff were very friendly and even helped us write a wedding card in Swedish. The room was clean and comfortable and... More

My husband and I stayed at Opalen for one night being "tourists" in our own city together with our two small children! :-) It was a very nice family getaway - our room was comfortable and very clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful with both hot and cold options. We only stayed one night and did not... More
