“Great hotel, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

This was a wonderful little hotel in a perfect location to explore Gothenburg. Located down a quiet little street, it's about 10 minutes walk from the bus terminal, and just off the main streets for easy access to trams if desired. The room was clean and airy, and the bed was incredibly comfy (if sleeping in a big squishy cloud is your thing!). The toiletries included in the room as lovely (elemis conditioner and body lotion). Breakfast had a good selection, and the hours were also very accommodating. Staff at reception were very helpful and full of hints and tips for exploring the city. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a weekend break.

We stayed at hotel vanilla for a weekend. We arrived at 11pm and although there were no receptionist, the hotel had provided us with the door code prior to our arrival. When we arrived our door cards were waiting for us at reception with the wifi code and a selection of sandwiches. The room was spotless (and that's coming from a very fussy woman when it comes about cleaning!) the room was not very big but very warm (perfect in -10!). The breakfast was great with a nice selection of good products and The staff were very kind and helpful (let's us have the room until 4pm at no extra charge as we had a late flight!). The room would have been perfect if it had tea facilities;)

Perfect hotel with genuine atmosphere. The location is spot on. Great area to stroll around and explore the city. Central but in a pretty quiet street. The room was really quiet, with windows to the back yard. It's spartan and small, but not too small. I don't have anything to complain about, but there's a small lack of wow-factor so that's why i "only" give it 4 points. Still this is a really cozy hotel and you won't regret your stay here. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Gothenburg. If you need an elevator you better look for something else though.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of vacation.

Cute place. Check in was good, free wifi was good. We prepaid for the two nights as we had an early flight our last day. It was sometimes hard to find someone at the desk, but as this is more of a B&B and not a hotel, not too problematic.

Room was small but serviceable. Bathroom was the same. Liked having the windows open for the breeze. Our room overlooked the courtyard and there was some noise when the courtyard was full, but overnight was very quiet. There is no elevator and the curving staircase is challenging with luggage. Not sure if they had bell service or not.

Breakfast was good, but very busy. Had to miss it the second day due to the early flight.

This was a great location for walking around the city. We were dropped off and picked up by Volvo so didn't have to worry about a taxi to the airport, not sure how easy that would be without being prearranged.

It is really nice, calm and cozy hotel in the center of the Goteborg. Stuff is very helpful, rooms are clean, no unnecessary noise. Downstairs of the hotel there is nice cafey - very popular with locals and offering delicious sweets.

We stayed for two nights in this small but perfectly formed hotel. It is hard to find but worth it when you get there. It is very modern, extremely clean and has first rate facilities (except a lift). The staff are friendly and the breakfasts are delicious, served in a cafe where you can eat in the day and early evening. Beds are so comforatble that you don't want to get up in the morning and we had a room which was nice and quiet.

Room Tip: Don't get a taxi form the Central Station as it is easily walkable if you have a map or one stop...

In the middle of the nicer of the shopping districts with easy access to everything. Staff is friendly, rooms are fine and breakfast is good. No complaints other than maybe the lack of A/C. Sleeping with an open window can be noisy, depending on weekday and what happens on the street.

We got an excellent summer deal and were happy with our stay.

We decided to use our Gothenburg City Card to park for free a few kilometers away, but there is cheap (but tight) parking available.
