Reviewed May 22, 2012

Stayed here probably over 15 times during the years, it is very scandic and wwith that comes clean rooms and good service, great after work in the bar. The main thing about this hotel is the location, it is absolutely where you want it to be, on the big main street fo gothenburg.
Can be worth to upgrade to larger room as the one bed rooms can be to small.

This place is part of the Scandic chain which is the Nordic version of the Best Western - no frills hotels that do the job. Over the years I have stayed at numerous Scandics and this is my favourite in Gothenburg. The rooms are small but clean and with good beds. The staff are very friendly, the breakfast offering is very good and the location is as central as you get in Gothenburg - smack down on the main avenue of Gothenburg.

Stayed at Rubinen a couple of years ago and decided to go back. Had booked the smaller Economy room (a smaller sized room with its own bathroom, wardrobes, desk, armchair but just a queen sized bed up against the wall to save space). The room was actually larger from what I had thought and very comfortable. Unfortunately the tv didn't work and after notifying the front desk we were moved to a large family room, no extra charge. The family room was great, very spacious (but with a rather small bath, considering that it was supposed to accommodate an entire family). The room had good sized bed, desk, wardrobes, armchair and fold out sofa (roomed two). Delicious breakfast buffet, and the restaurant connected to the hotel was excellent. Also superb location right in the middle of the Avenyn street in city center. Highly recommended!

If you want a hotel on the 'avenue' in Gothenburg, this will do. Apart from that it's a strictly average place and pretty shabby. The rooms are too small and the interior is tired - there are many better places to stay in Gothenburg.

Room Tip: You have two choices, facing the 'avenue' or not. So you can have a view over a main road or...

I stayed 2 times at the Scandic Rubinen for short business trips in December 2011. The hotel is convenient: free wi-fi, nice Spanish style food bar, breakfast is god with a large variety of food. Staff is friendly and always keen to help or find a solution. Meeting rooms are simple, nicely decorated. But the rooms are small and bed for one person is just Ok. In a sum up, not exceptional but practical for short business trip. Location is good in the city center.

We stayed in Scandic Rubinen for a week over New Year. The rooms are all themed and have their own unique name and picture on the wall. We had the Santa Claus room. Our room had a very comfortable bed and our 2 kids slept on the fold out leather sofa.
The hotel is very good with kids. In the lobby and the breakfast room there were small play areas for the kids, and the hotel restaurant/bar (Ruby) had a great kid's menu.
The location is unbeatable- on the Aveny, with a systembolaget (bottle shop) within 100 metres and all the shopping and eating possibilities you could wish for.
If you want to eat out and you are mindful of your budget- go out for lunch! Gothenburg restaurants all have wonderful deals at lunchtime- eating the same food for a fraction of the price.

We had room 415 and although it was very very small, it was sufficient for us for our city break. When we arrived the room was very warm so we had to turn the radiator down - not a big deal really. The bed is tiny - I would say smaller than a double bed, and you only get one pillow each which again are really small. On our first night we had to use the cushion from the chair in the room, but on the second night we asked for more pillows and the hotel staff brought them. The room was clean and comfortable apart from that! Being pregnant I had asked for a quiet room. We were given one at the front of the hotel and despite arriving at 1.30am on a Friday night, the noise levels were fine.

The hotel is really nice, and the buffet breakfasts are great. It's a bit chaotic, but there is a wide range of food (bacon, beans, eggs, porridge, cheeses and meats, breads, yoghurt and muesli etc) so there should be something to suit everyone. They even have gluten free cereals! The staff on reception were really helpful, and as we checked out early we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel until the evening and make the most of our time in the city. I'd go back, but perhaps upgrade to a slightly bigger room.
