“Perfect located on the outer harbour”
Reviewed August 2, 2010

Spend two nights there with my family while visiting Gothenburg and Liseberg amusement park (highly recommended).
A room accomodating 4 people facing the habour is not exactly what I call cheap, but we found the location and the general service as justifying the cost.
When checking in, the conciergies were a bit slow in the proedures - but maybe the staffing is a bit short on a Sunday evening.
But general attentiveness and information was in general fine - we borrowed a stroller at the reception and were given good directions for public transport to Liseberg and the city center. By all means - do use the public transportation system - it's fast, efficient and not too expensive - bear in mind that parking is fairly expensive - and parking at Liseberg is easily more expensive than 3 tram tickets.
Breakfast is included in the stay - but be sure to be there early. there are signs in the lifts describing when to be there during holiday seasons - before 8.30 am are fine - otherwise the breakfast rooms are crowded with families. Replenishing of the breakfast buffet is fast and it is always kept tidy.
The hotel is situated in an old brewery (the brew is still being made, but by Carlsberg somewhere else) and the refurbishing is done with a certain attentiveness to details and respect for the original building.
Parking on the premises is free, but requires a slip placed behind the windscreen to avoid fining. The slip is provided in the reception, where you also can get access code and password for free WIFI for the duration of your stay.
The room was spotlessly clean, bathroom the same.
All in all a recommendable stay!
If you travel with younger children, the nearby restaurant "Sjömagasinet" is a bit too classy - unless they are extremely well-behavioured or sedated - but just behind the hotel we found a small pizzeria - we brought the pizzas to the waterfront and enjoyed the warm July evening (yes, they do occur in Sweden) overlooking the harbour and, feeding the ducks while munching on our pizza.
The hotel restaurant is also fine - but without the entertainment value of ducks, boats, and ferries.

I enjoyed the Novotel. The location was great, with a picturesque walk along the river. It is right across the river from trendy part of town. The hotel was great, with a fine breakfast provided. Watch out for the parking attendant who is a little overbearing.

Staying in Novotel Goteborg Hotel was a true experience. The view seen from my room was truly inspiring. It is really very pretty, inside as much as outside and extremely comfortable too. The room I stayed in had every small detail one could think of, including a fully equipped Kitchen and internet access. I booked it through easy click travel and paid much less than I expected. I warmly recommend it!

Spent the weekend in Goteburg in early December 09 with my girlfirend. both of us were very happy with this hotel, it was clean , had everything you need and the staff were very friendly. they advised us on quite a few different things to do and see and could help us enough . very friendly and efficient , no messing around whatsoever. We flew in to Goteburg City airport which was an easy taxi ride to the novotel across the river.

transport to an from the hotel couldnt have been easier , it is very close to 2 tram stops which are easy to take and is alos beside the ferry which is an alternative to get into town which we took a few times as we werent in a rush. we ate in the restaraunt a few times , food was a good standard but a little expensive (relative to city restaraunts)

all in all i was very happy to stay in the novotel and will stay there again when we return in the summer

This is an excellent hotel on the waterfront. The rooms have a good view of the harbour and there are plent of nice locations for a walk nearby. Great in the early mornings and towards evening.

The rooms however coudl be bigger but the in general great ambience...

The breakfast menu coudl do with more variety however..

The location is remote but looks good ! By the waterfront near a big bridge, Hotel-building looks good, the rooms are big (the one we had) and we had waterfrontview. Furniture of the room is a little outdated or maybe typical Scandinavian....(simple).
Everything looks clean. It is an hour walk to the centre so take the tram or better, the water-ferry to the centre ! Good free parking. We had no breakfast (was included) because you can eat until 09.30 hours. That is too early for us when you want to slowdown because of vacation... We recommend this hotel. We do not recommend the city Goteburg but that is our opinion. Free wired internet in room.

Hotel is elegant. Location is not central, but there is a nearby tram stop which brings you to the heart of town within 15 mins.
The view from the breakfast dining room over the harbour is great.
Room are elegant and up-to-date.
Room price is reasonable given the quality of accomodation.
