This is a cute hotel, nice and clean, right in the very middle of Gothenburg. You have a short walk to the Opera House/the river. Shopping is right outside. The hotel also has a great café with lots of varieties, both small deli food or sweet pie. That's great!
However the rooms were very small and very hot. No air condition! High stairs up to the rooms so just forget it if you are mobility impaired! When we arrived at one o'clock p.m. we were told that one room (we were two couples and had booked two rooms) wasn't available until three o'clock p.m. just when our Opera show started which made us forced to dress up in one room the four of us! Awkward! To say the least! But we had to leave the rooms at noon next day and it was way from full so I have a hard time understand why it was so impossible to give us two cleaned rooms before three o'clock p.m. Parking was charged (unusual in Sweden) and it was just about room enough for the car to go through the gateway and to park in the VERY narrow place!
In the morning it was horribly noisy from 6 o'clock so you'd better be an early bird!
The breakfast food ran out over and over again. The bread was finished, the tea water was cold a.s.o. Kind of irritating! Only one person seemed to be working and boy, she was working! The other girl must have been a trainee? Over all, not at all as sweet as it looks on pictures but yet kind of okay mostly because of its location and the very nice café!
