Reviewed August 20, 2013

Big surprise as how nice the hotel was. Super cleans and comfy rooms and nice view. And the 2 blond Young Ladies in the reception walked the extra mile to help us. Highly recommendable!!! Lots of parking spots for free. Breakfast is nothing to write home about but there is plenty. Get up early if you want a seat near the windows.

I used this hotel as a base for my recent visit to the Way Out Festival. The hotel has a nice location on the water, but my room has zero view and overlooked a brick wall. The rooms are really comfortable with a hair dryer, tea making facilities and a safe. The beds are uber comfy so I has a really good nights sleep. Breakfast was included in my room rate and it was really delicious. The Swedish know how to provide good breads and cheeses, so this set me up for the day. The hotel seemed very family friendly with lots of children running around with plenty to do.
Free wifi - hurrah! The staff are also very helpful and efficient.

Room Tip: Ask for a hotel overlooking the water. If you have a room overlooking the wall - ask to change!

This is a boutique type modern hotel sitting on the river on the outskirts of the City. You would need a hire car but It has its own free car park which is handy. The rooms are modern and perfect for a couple away for a city break. Free wifi and the bathroom has everything you'll need. There is a buffet breakfast included which was really good. Every type of cold breakfast and hot choices too. Great start to the day. I liked the restaurant at night, the food was good and the outlook on to the river through the big windows as the sun goes down is relaxing. Staff were friendly. We stayed here twice and enjoyed it. My only criticism is that at the entrance to the carpark and hotel there were several bins overflowing with rubbish and this made great pickings for the local birds who made a lovely mess on the pavement. It looked awful and if it were me in the hotel management I would be making sure each morning that was cleared up but it wasn't.

Thank you for your comments on your stay, I am glad you liked our hotel! We do have a lot of hungry birds in the area, as we are close to the sea. Together with our neighbours we are trying to keep the area clean, but from now on we will work harder!

We stayed here cause we wanted to go mountain-biking in Sweden. This air conditioned hotel on the outskirts of town and having its own parking area as advertised should have been a good choice. Well not for us! The room was like a freaking sauna! The windows could only be opened a tad. The bed was hard and uncomfy. The internet soooo slow with frequent outage or no internet with full wifi signal. what the fxck? We left the car on their parking lot overnight next to CC camera's with a Novotel parking permit. The second night some jerk decided to steal our mountainbikes using all force required. Of course the hotel can not be blaimed for this but it would have been so nice if somebody had warned us that we'd better leave our bikes inside due to active crime in this area. The manager felt genuinely sorry and would ask her technical manager to pull up the security footage and have us call us back?? So far zilch. Well it ruined our summer vacation!

I am very sorry to hear that your mountain bikes where stolen when visiting us in Göteborg. I understand such an experience ruins the whole trip. My Front-Office Manager has been in contact with you regarding the surveillance cameras. If you consider visiting Sweden again you are more than welcome to us. We will give you a better time I can guarantee, but I cannot promise you Mediterranean weather!

Sun set view very nice when you drink your beer.
Room are ok. Tipical Novotel room not much not less. Rooms are quiet and big enough.
Location ; far from city center you can take ferry or taxi. Taxi very expensive in gothenburg.
Thereis no shopping center around the hotel. only cat food restaurant near the hotel. So you have only chance to eat at hotel.

We stayed here for 3 nights on a visit to Gothenburg. The reviews were good, but the main draw was the free parking - an important factor when staying in Gothenburg. It is also very easy to get to from the Ferry Terminals. The hotel was excellent in every way; clean; comfortable, friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent. The Hotel is very close to tram routes which mean that getting into the centre of the town is very easy and takes only a few minutes. Tram passes can very useful.
