This is positioned 300m or so from the main Gothenberg city 'avenue', so location is perfect. Price was ok for Sweden (but crazy expensive from a uk point of view). Hotel is nice and typically Swedish. Light coloured wood, friendly staff and good facilities - great gym, sauna, pool. Breakfast was ok. Bed linen was clean but the room floor under the bed was not - I had dust and a grape under my bed :) Cleaners need a little reminder I think! The floor is all wood tho...and i know dust collects so i have a small amount of sympathy. Important thing for me was that bed was clean. Hotel wifi was free and worked well. Hotel food / beer was good. Bed was comfy. My only gripe was that on day 2 there was a very bad smell from the floor drain in the bathroom. It was really grim. Meant i had to keep doot shut. Overall not bad stay at all...shame about pungent bathroom drain odour!
