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.
