“Great hotel, great view and landscape”
Reviewed April 26, 2011

We stayed only 2 nights. but the hotel is great. Although it s far from city center ( can be reached by tram 11, nya varvet salloon station), the location is great and the hotel itself worths the money paid. I was really surprised by the breakfast with a variety of choice from fruit to omelet. The view to harbor is really nice, especially during evening/night. The only minus might be the lack of signs/indicators from tram station to hotel, it gets difficult to reach it.

Stayed April 2011, traveled on business

We booked this accommodation due to the option on cooking a basic meal with the high prices in Sweden. The location was a big disappointment, didn't mind the tram ride out of Gothenburg but the walk to and from the tram stop was a drag and the map on line was not accurate. The place had been used as a prison in the past and on a grim February evening you can well believe it. The rooms could do with soundproofing, it was very noisy when people came in and out as we were next to one of the main doors. The rooms are not suitable for younger children, the stairs are steep with no gate, but would do in the summer if you had you own car. Watching the ferries come in and out was fine but the power station opposite spoils any chance of a decent view in the day and it's lit with hundreds of lights at night.

Three night stay at Nya Varvet Studios, we stayed in the main building, with the reception area and breakfast / dining room.

Room was adequate size. Included kitchenette (could be useful for longer or budget stay). Asked for a double room but got two single beds pushed together. Lots of hot water in shower. No frills room: no room service, no chamber-maid (hard floors got quite dirty by end of stay), no shampoo, soaps etc, no tea / coffee top ups. Only one comfy chair, desk and chair. Bed was reasonably comfortable although it was clearly possible to hear people walking in room above, opening and closing of doors and corridor noise.

Breakfast was included in room rate: self-service, reasonable breakfast. Bistro and bar service weekdays only (no bar or bistro service over weekend).

Location was reasonable, on water's edge in working estuary, so quite interesting in terms of large ships and industry. It was a 15 minute walk to bus stop, tram stop or water ferry, not a problem as we enjoy walking! Excellent transport links to central Gothenburg and surrounding areas. Free car parking for guests. Good location for running along riverside on cycle and pedestrian paths.
