The rooms are ok, but I dont like a hotel which makes scrambled eggs where the only ingredient is powder and bacon that is only warmed up. The hotel is very centrally located on the Avenue and close to everything.

This is a hotel at the big avenue in Gothenburg. The central location gets you out close to attractions in just some seconds. The rooms are quite big and very clean. There's a nice roof-top bar and at the entrance there's a good restaurant and pub. Might a little expensive, but totally worth it for a night or two. Exceptional... More

The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Gothenburg. Shopping, city tours, the art museum and liseberg is all within walking distance. Plenty of restaurants just outside the door, whether you are in the mood for fine cuisine or fast food. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast buffet is amazing! All kinds of bread, spreads, meats,... More

If my room had been a little more spacious I would give 5 star rating. I stayed in a Scandic in Varnamo the night before and had much more space, however Gothenburg is a big city so space seems to have been squeezed! the breakfast quality and product range was excellent, all areas of the hotel were clean and I...

The rooms in this very centrally located hotel are quite typical Scandic quality - clean and modern. Only downsides were that the bed was narrower that we were accustomed to (maybe there's an booking option) and as the room was towards the street, there was some noise in late evening (people) and also in the morning (cleaning cars). The breakfast... More

Aboard the ferry to Gothenburg I asked a Swede how to find Kungsportsavenyn from the StenaLine ferry. "It's easy: Just ask the first person you meet and he or she will tell, because every Gothenburger will take a walk on Avenyn". Yes, we found Rubinen easily and soon found ourselves enjoying life sitting in the sun on the top bar... More
