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

Hotel location is very good, it is easy to walk city centre for shopping & dining. Breakfast is okey and tasty. Hotel rooms are very small, there is no good place to open your luggage. Air condition is not working, so it´s very difficult to sleep in hot room and if you open a room window, cars etc disturb your... More

Friendly hotel with an excellent breakfast. Easy location in the center of the city with easy walking distance to attractions. Plenty of people that speak excellent english. Room I stayed in was not huge, but I was not coming to sit in my room so that was OK.

This hotel would have been a wonderful place to stay ten years ago. It's central, right in the middle of Göteborg with walking distance to almost everything. Stunning views if you get a room on a higher floor. But, it's become a bit old and worn. Gurgling pipes, scratched sink, out of place modern shower curtains and worst of all... More

The best part of the hotel IMO is the location and breakfast buffet. Third would be the adequate if small gym. The location is only an 8-minute walk from the first airport bus shuttle stop, the Flybussarna, into the city. Also it's a 10-20 minute walk to many tourist sites from the hotel, also making it an ideal location. The... More

Our first room stank...really badly from the drain in the bathroom. We went down to tell reception and they immediately upgraded us to a ninth floor room which was bright and spacious and smelt fresh. We had a fab nights sleep. If you can afford a top floor room book it. Breakfast was ok. Tram 6 stops right outside.

stayed here whilst attending a football match and a decent hotel, classes as 3 star and better than a lot of UK 3 star hotels. Not a big room but comfortable and a good night's sleep, food was fine and plentiful, very convenient to walk into town of catch a tram/bus not greatly expensive (by Swedish standards)

The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was quite big and clean, however, the hotel looks a bit "tired". Good breakfast with a lot of choices. Walking distance to the city centre. The hotel has it´s own parking outside the hotel and in a garage under the hotel at a fee (decent price).

- The hotel is at a great location; it is at walking distance from the city centre (20 mins) but also well-connected by public transport. - The staff were all really helpful and friendly. My reservation, made through booking.com, had been cancelled without me knowing but the reception staff managed to rebook me immediately - and at no extra cost... More
