“1st Class but expensive compared to uk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

I stayed in the Riverton on the 1st and 2nd of October for a 2 day meeting. the check in staff are 1st class and could,nt be more helpful even to the extent of taking me to the lift to show how the key card worked. The room was clean and adequate but the view from the window wasnt the best. Good comfortable bed but was woken in the morning by some reversing lorry 2 mornings in a row. Breakfast is buffet style so you can have as much as you like which was a great bonus, but for me the clincher is the Sky Bar. There surely cannot be a better view in Gothenburg from the restaraunt. The Bar staff were very attentive and willing to help in your choice of wines etc in fact the customer service in the sky bar was excellent and a credit to the Hotel. Only Complaint would be the price but taking in to account the cost equivelent against any top uk hotel it would probably be comparable but £12 for a glass of wine although pleasant is expensive in my eyes. I would stay here again in a heartbeat but would have to save for a while to afford it.

Room Tip: No better view in Gothenburg, pricey but if you can afford it well worth the stay

The hotel is close to all you want to experience. I will recommend the part of the City called Haga. A short walk(5 min.) from the hotel. A lovely place with small shops and pubs. The weekends before Christmas is really a nice experience. The room was perfect, with a lovely bathtub with colored lights.
Great breakfast and service. Soundproof room.

Good location in the city. The room were very nice and with a gadget called NightCove. I would like that one at home. The sky bar was also of high standard with a good atmosphere. I would recommed this hotel for all type of trips.

A super cozy hotel situated at Gothenburg harbor. Close to the Stena Line terminal if you would like to take a trip by boat to Frederikshavn / Denmark or to Kiel / Germany. Walking distance to the town center where you can shop in North Town, Arcade, NK, to name a few. There is a wide selection of restaurants if you e tempted to eat. There is much to see and experience in Gothenburg.

Thank you for the excellent description of Hotel Riverton's enviroment. If you haven't already tried this, I recommend you to take the hotel elevator to the upper floor where you find our restaurant Riverton View with a breathtaking view of the harbour.

Have a great fall and welcome back!

I have stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in beginning of October. During this period, I fall sick and have to remain in hotel room for almost a week. The staffs took good care of me by ensuring my needs are well taken care of. The front desk staffs even took the effort to come to my room and check my condition. I am quite grateful and feel great of their service.

In terms of room, it is nice and clean. The breakfast is fantastic with many choices.
The only concern is the location is not near major shopping area but it is still within walking distance.

Room Tip: Nice, clean and quiet room

I've been several time in Gobeborg in the past, but never in this hotel; I visited it for a company conference; The first look was not that good because the position, even if convenient to reach most of the city attractiveness, is not very nice; during my visit there were also work in progress in the roads nearby.
Entering in the hotel the impression is better; I saw some criticisms from other writers about the front desk people but I did not notice any problems and I should thus emphasize the warmer courtesy of the restaurant staff.
The interior decorations are typically Scandinavian (I think that who designed the bathroom never had a shower in his life: not enough room due to the stiffness of the shower hose, no place to put the soap)
I found the hotel pretty clean, the breakfast fair and outstanding service and food at the restaurants with a special mention to the sky restaurant located on upper floor.
So good stay with last suggestion of building a gym soon; I missed it. Thanks
