Reviewed June 9, 2012

I have now stayed twice in this hotel for some business conferences, and I enjoyed my stay. both times I have to stay hotels quite a much for work and have seen this and that. In Riverton my extra point goes to bed in hotelrooms, very comfortable ones! Rooms are very clean and modern, and also neat and white bathroom deserves extra thanks.

Stayed in Riverton for 3 nights on for a residential business conference. The location was nicely within the city and one could walk around and enjoy some history of Gothenburg and find some nice eating joints. The hotel itself has limited dining options and is more of a conference centre. The conference facilities were just about adequate. There was enough space and amenities in the conference room but the acoustics was poor and it was very difficult to hear the speaker at the end of the hall.

The rooms were small and furnished with bare minimum amenities. It is functional and practical with no touch of luxury. There is no health club, gym or swimming pool on this property. The view was terrible overlooking a parking lot.

Breakfast was fine with adequate options but I would have preferred some variety as eating the same breakfast choices everyday became quite boring by the 3rd day. Lunch and dinner at the restaurant was very good and so were the nice cakes and biscuits provided along with tea and coffee. However the restaurant on their top floor was quite noisy and one had to shout to be heard above the din.

In all, it is an adequate business hotel and I would stay here only if I was attending a conference at the same hotel. This is not my recommended choice.

Room Tip: Don't choose rooms overlooking the parking lot!

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights when I was attending a conference in Göteborg. I had a pleasant stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Göteborg for leisure or other activities.
Location:
Location of the hotel is ideal so to speak. You can walk to the hotel from the Central station (if you wish ☺ takes 10 – 15 mins) or you can take bus and get off at Rosenlund and then walk 1 min from there. I was actually taking tram 6 and getting off at Järntorget and from there it is just a 2 mins walk to the hotel.
Room:
I stayed in a single (superior) room in the third floor. The room was spacious enough for me ☺. They have tea-making facility in the room, a working desk, free wifi, a huge TV and a chair. There is also iron (which was a huge plus for me) in the room. They also provide you with adequate toiletries and bathrobe.
Overall sleep quality was really good.
Room cleaning service could have been better. One day they left my window wide open.

Buffet breakfast was really really good. They had lots of (healthy) choices.

All in all it was a really good hotel and i was very satisfied with my stay. Shoot me a pm if you wish to know any other details :-)

A newly renovated hotel. Very fresh and clean. Nice bathroom. Nice amenities in the bathroom. Only water in the minibar though. Big flat TV screen with many channels. Comfortable bed.
Good price. Rich breakfast. Excellent view from the sky-bar.
I liked the hotel and will most probably go back when i come to Göteborg next time.

The room was fresh and very very white! took a little while to work out that we had electric blinds and lovely lighting that changed colour! Room and bathroom both small, but advantage of seating area.

Currently upgrading the corridors which will finish off the hotel nicely!

The location was good, walk one way to Haga and the other to Kungsport. While the hotel's own skybar was cool, nearby walks to Manana and the fishchurch are worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for a view to the river

Lovely staff. Rooms that face water have great views. Rooms on the other side have no view at all, so ask for a room facing the water.

There is a power station accross the road. Not great I thought until I started walking around the city and realised it's a great way to orient. You can see the smoke stack from anywhere in GOthenberg so you'll never get lost.

The staff are brilliant. Very helpful and very friendly.

The decor is confused because they are in the process of a major renovation. It's also noisy during the day.

Breakfast: the qualioty of the food is good. The selection is very poor.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the water to have a decent view.
