I've stayed here twice in the last six months as its close to the office.

My second stay was much better as I had a quieter room.

The biggest problem is the single rooms - they are so small!

Breakfast is good and the staff are friendly and very helpful.

Hej,

tack för att du tog dig tid att göra ett omdöme om oss på Tripadvisor!

Tyvärr är vissa av våra rum av den mindre storleken men det som är glädjande är att vi har många olika varianter av rum vilket ökar möjligheten att välja efter eget behov.

Jag tackar varmast för kommentaren om att personalen känns vänlig och hjälpsam, jag hoppas det kan få dig att överväga att bo hos oss igen.

Vänligen Anna

I stayed one night in Scandic Opalen in September. I was lucky enough to get a room from the 12th floor. The view from the room was just excellent and practically one wall of the room was nothing else but a big window, the stadium was visible from the room.

The room decoration was according to the latest Scandinavian style. Very, very simple and modern but still cosy. Also, everything looked to be brand new. Overall, the room was perfect and silent. I had an excellent sleep in this room.

The stay was finished with a free breakfast with a lot of choices.

I have been staying at this hotel a couple of times, as it is conveniently located when I am in town. Last visit was outstadning, I got a room at one of the top floors that I did not know even existed at this hotel.

It was more like a luxury penthouse studio apartment than the room I am usually assigned.

Room Tip: Go for the top floors - you will be amazed

Our room on one of the top floors had a great view. The entire wall was a window, overlooking the stadium. The room was quiet an comfortable. Free breakfast in the morning with a lot of choices. Location is good, just a few blocks walk to the Avenue. Seems common in Sweden to have two twin beds pushed together, a bit unusual for an American but we found the same elsewhere in Sweden.

Superior room with fresh decor in the top floor. Nice views of Gothenburg. Well located a short distance from the center near Liseberg and Ullevi.. Easy to park.
Boring breakfast as in most other Scandic.

Hotel is fine with excellent location. Breakfast was pretty standard, but it managed the soft boiled eggs to perfection. However, the service provided (by Monica Hansson in particular) was world class!
