Halden, Norway20 contributions9 helpful votes
Stayed here two nights with our family, two adults and two kids, in a superior room in the 12th floor. Nice room, great view and location, and nice breakfast. But, no aircondition in the room. So we hardly got any sleep because of the very high tempersture in the room, no oppertunety to open windows (windows from floor to ceiling) and no air coming from the aircondition. We told this to the reseption a couple of times, but they could not do anything. The last night it was so hot that we needed to contact them again and they gave us two fans, which did not help so much because of a very hot room and high humidity. So we are disappointed that a hotel chain this big, can not find a better solution for aircondition in the rooms.

Clean room that seemed to be quite recently reniovated to a good standard with nice bathroom and an acceptable bed. The room was a bit on the small side for us and two medium sized dogs. Good climate and no noice that disturbed us, the breakfast buffe leaves no one disappointed.

Been sleeping in this hotel at two different times in different rooms. Clean rooms, good pressure in the shower. The only bad things is the queue for the elevator, waited a few minutes each time. The rooms were ”new”-looking.

Thank you for your feedback, we are so glad that you like us :) At busy times there is unfortunately sometimes a queue to the elevator. We wish that more guests would use the stairs for a healthier way to the room (and less queues to the elevator ;) )

Scandic Oplalen delivered a good experience, excellent continental breakfast with fresh products, professional and friendly service. Decent lounge and bar for a drink. The room was clean and had a good view of Gothenburg. No minibar. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed during dinner on Sundays.

Hello, Thank you for staying with us at Opalen, and thank you for a fantastic review! I am glad you appreciated our lovely breakfast and our amazing views! During summer, the restaurant is open for dinner on Sundays, perhaps a reason for you to visit us again?! I am wishing you a lovely rest of summer, and we hope to see you at Opalen again! Kind regards, Marjo

We stayed in Gothenburg for 3 nights. The hotel is very clean, the staff is very kind and the breakfast is exceptional. There is the possibility to park under the hotel paying 27 euros for each night, a little expensive but there are no alternatives

Nice Hotel very Sentra in Gothenburg. Within walking distance, or with a tram just outside the door. Friendly staff, and a good bar. There are better places to eat than the hotel’s restaurant within walking distance.
