This is a modern, clean and comfortable hotel with a fabulous view of the busy Gota river from top floor rooms - I don't think any other hotel in Goteborg will offer a better view of the river. Contrary to some previous reviewers, I have found the selection of food at breakfast to be adequate, not extensive but OK for my liking. The bed felt very comfortable. The room was very quiet - not a single sound penetrated the room from outside. Coffee machine in the room, free of charge mineral water and a big-size flatscreen TV were a nice bonus. The reception staff was very efficient - the very attractive looking Swedish girls at the reception provided me with all information about Goteborg and supplied directions in a polite way with a smile - just looking at these fine girls and having small chat with them made my day!
On the slightly negative note, the hotel is a bit far off the city center. On the other hand, there is an area full of delicious restaurants within 2 minutes walking distance from the hotel and a rather picturesque Haga district across a small channel nearby. Although my room was cosy and clean, there were big dark scratches in the middle of the floor - probably, left as a result of someone moving the bed.
All in all, I would definitely stay in this hotel again if I were to visit Goteborg in future. The truly fabulous view of the river from the hotel will be my most lasting impression from Goteburg.
