Best Western Plus Hotel Mektagonen
Ranked #15 of 67 Hotels in Gothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This property felt a bit misplaced in Gothenburg, but after a warm welcome by an English-speaking receptionist, we were surprised and consumed by the awesome and very modern feel of the facility.
Our room had a queen bed and sofa bed, exactly as requested. The air was fresh and no signs of lazy housekeeping. The floors are a nice dark hard wood type. The doors and windows, when closed, blocked out just about every external noise—a welcome treat as we were looking for a solid night of quiet sleep.
We had dinner in the hotel—a limited and slightly-pricey menu, but the food was great. Our waitress, Diana, provided exceptional service and dialogue during our meal. The breakfast buffet was standard for European hotels. At no point did the buffet run out of any food items.
The location of the hotel is in a very commercial / office building area. It seemed a bit odd, but we got past it. There is parking on the premises, for a fee.

Would we stay here again? Absolutely.

Great room, more of a suite with living, dining, kitchen, bedroom and sauna! With the grocery store below it was great to have a home cooked meal while traveling trough Scandinavia. Only 2 stops to Liseberg on the tram. The morning breakfast was great. This was the first hotel that provided adequate soft towels, robes, and slippers. They also had free laundry room.

Nice big room with mini kitchen and microwawe 20 min walk from Liseberg. or a couple of minutes by tram. Strange neigbourhood. Lies in the middle of a industriefield. Trukcs woke me ut early. Too noisy for me, but ok for one night. The breakfast was ok, but not so tasteful.The kids sleeapingcoach was quite bad, for this price.All take away nearby closes early som be sure that you have dinner if you dont care for pizza or expensive beef bouffet at the hotel restaurant.

We had made another reservation that turned into a disaster. We had to find something fast because it was getting later in the day. We jumped on line and got a great deal and room at the mekagonen best western. The staff and room were great. The morning breakfast was good too. Only negative was the 30 dollar parking fee for the garage, but emergency has no cost!

I was only in the hotel for about 10 hours so didn't have chance to fully explore. The room I had was very spacious and comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. The hotel is in a building shared with offices so make sure you take the correct lift (we didn't the first time). Breakfast was more than adequate and there was parking on site. I know because my room looked out into the car park. The tram stop nearby was very convenient for getting into the city centre which was good as the hotel is on an industrial estate with not much nearby.

Good about this hotel:
Spacious nice rooms, kitchenette so it's possible to cook own food or at least microwave something bought in supermarket nearby.
Nice breakfast, waffles with cream, standard choice of other food.

What I didn't like about hotel. Once staying there I ended up in room right above gym. So I heard disturbing sounds from gym untill 10 or 11pm and then in the morning (first I thought it was someone from the room above trying to break furniture). Staff politely offered me to change room. Why they give these rooms to people in the first place... If they have some other ones. So checking in there, make sure to ask room from the floor 5 and above. 4 is the floor where you can here sounds from gym.
I stayed there twice. One time I was totally satisfied. Another time it was this gym noise.

Hotel location is not that great either. Mainly offices, supermarkets and car dealers in neighbourhood. But it's easy to get to city center with tram. So it's up to you. If price is good and tram trips to city don't bother, so why not. Just avoid 4th floor :)

Room Tip: Avoid 4th floor or those rooms which are located above gym.

The Best Western Hotel Mektagonen has nice, spacious rooms with a kitchenette and an excellent bed. All required gear is availabe, expect for a safe, but the entrance of various parts of this hotel is via your card so the safe might not be necessary anymore. Tram 2 and 4 pass this hotel and provides easy access to the city and central station. A card can be purchased at the reception. The reception kindly provides all kinds of information (and good recommendations) about sights and public transport, including time tables. Next to the hotel is a supermarket. The only downside of this hotel is that the reception keeps asking when you're going to pay (as if I'm not intending to do so) and the breakfast has little fruit available. Gutenfree diet is perfectly catered though.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be okay.
