“Worth the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

I stayed 2 nights at Riverton Hotel toghether with my 2 teenage daughters and my niese, 4 ladies in Gothenburg. Spacious rooms, very good beds, large breakfast buffet, a few minutes walk from central parts of Gothenburg and easy to find the hotel driving in from Oslo. The hotel has been refurbished and is still in the process of having a "face lift" but everything we needed was there. Service is very good. Receptionists are very helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed in 2 superior Family rooms

The hotel is located within just a few steps to shops and restaurants, We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our room, there´s plenty of space, really fresh and cosy. Small bathroom but Id rather have a roomy bedroom than a roomy bath...
Breakfast is generous and really tasty, if you go for breakfast in the end of the last serving hour though you might find it a bit crowded so try to get there a bit earlier.
Overall good value hotel when you want to stay in the center.

The way to the hotel was easy to find from the central station... Maybe you´ll think it's a terrifying hotel once you see it from outside, but instead it is wonderful. The rooms are very well isolated so you won't hear a single noise. You won't feel cold at any time! You´ll find a courtesy kettle with coffee and tea and water. They offer you good amenities in the bathroom. It's a very clean hotel...The breakfast buffet is wonderful with super tasty bread and every type of food you want...The Skybar is a good place to have a drink, with wonderful food and varieties of drinks, not to mention the music and the views! Definitively to go bak!!

The room was clean and the staff was very, very nice. The absolute best thing about this hotel was the breakfast. It was included with our room. Tasty, fresh and lots of variety! Fairly close to the Stena Line ferry.

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.

Thank you so much Christina for the great review regarding your hotel experience. Glad you utilized our Nightcove in our Premium rooms. The Nightcove improves your sleep quality by adapting your sleeping environment to meet the physiological needs of your body.

Have a great fall and welcome back to Hotel Riverton where you always get a very good night sleep, with or without a Nightcove!
