Top location, in the centre, close to shops and restaurants. Possibility to park close by, but expensive parking garage. Good breakfast, fresh food. Value for money. Nice bar, nice breakfast room, friendly staff

Second time in six months that I stayed here on business and the hotel was as good as I remembered it. Quirky design features make it very welcoming and the staff are attentive to any needs. The bar is a very nice meeting place and position of the hotel is handy for restaurants around the main street and beyond. The...

My partner and I stayed at the Scandic Rubinen for two nights. It's located in an ideal area, a short walk from the bus stop which goes direct to the airport and a stumbling distance from coffee shops, restaurants and bars. During my stay I made use of both the gym and sauna, which was clean and well maintained. The...

It is quite incredible that the hotel management allows beggars playing music all night on the sidewalk outside the hotel. We listened to accordion music by false tones from 2-5 o'clock at night. In the end we bought earplugs which meant we could finally sleep. On the whole it is many beggars in the area around the hotel. Our room...

Situated in the heart of Gothenburg this hotel has a nice atmosphere, clean and modern rooms, decent wifi and good breakfast choices. The only negative for me was safe deposit box provided in the room which was too small for my laptop. Other than that everything was fine and the bar area was really nice and welcoming.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Scandic Rubinen is located on Avenyn in central Gothenburg, a stone's throw from the famous bronze sculpture of Poseidon at Gotaplatsen and Kungsportsplatsen. Scandic Rubinen's central location in Gothenburg makes the hotel an ideal place for those who want to be close to Gothenburg's culture, shopping and city life. From our hotel you're also within a walking distance from many of Gothenburg's most popular attractions such as Liseberg amusement park, Universeum Science Centre and the Rohsska Museum. After expansion and renovation in spring 2014, Rubinen has a new design by DOOS architects. The interior has an urban feel and a homely elegance with a mix of colours, shape and details. Facility Our hotel is a natural meeting place in Gothenburg and we offer something to suit all tastes. Ruby Bar is Scandic Rubinen's very own living room and is open day and night. Both hotel guests and Gothenburg locals dine here, and our bar terrace is a great place to sit and watch the city entertainment.
