We reserved this hotel because it was cheaper than the other hotels in Gothenburg. I was a little nervous at first because it's pretty far from the city center. However, the tram stop is only a 2 minute walk and takes you directly into the center.
The only problem that we had was finding the hotel when we first got off of the tram. There aren't any signs marking the building, so we ended up walking up Falkenbergsgatan trying to find it. It was only after we were about to give up and give them a call did we realize that it sits in the same building as Willy's Supermarket. There is only a very small sign that you can see when you are in front of the entrance.
The customer service was great; very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite pleasant as well. There was a kitchen, so that we could prepare our own meals, thus saving money on food. Plus, with the supermarket right below us, it couldn't be more convenient. There were also English-language channels, which made my children happy.
The only inconvenience was not having maid service during our time there. This wouldn't have been a problem at all, but the trash cans are very small so they weren't emptied, thus creating a bit of a problem.
Other than that, there were no indications that this was a budget accommodation. The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were quite satisfactory. If I ever come back to Gothenburg, we will definitely stay here again.
