We stayed here in a deluxe room for a weekend trip to Gothenburg. Our room was on the first (ground) floor and I agree with what the others have said, that the room could be a bit noisy. It sounded like it was due to the bar underneath the hotel (bar has a street entrance down a few stairs, but it's more "undergrond" under the hotel). The noisy - mostly just bass from music - didn't really bother us much as we tend to get quite decent sleep after some nice dinners with wine. But if you're a light sleeper, you might want to re-consider. Other than this, the hotel was absolutely wonderful! The turn-down service includes free Cognac which is a great touch. The automatic late check-out until 6pm on Sunday was very sweet too with breakfast served until noon on Sundays. The selection of breakfast items was very good especially compared to what you usually get elsewhere in Europe. The front desk people were very friendly and we had no problem at all during our stay. We'll return here, but probably ask for a higher floor. The location is within walking distance to the main shopping area and there's also a tram stop directly outside of the hotel. It can't be any better.

Room Tip: try to avoid first/ground floor

Beautifully located in the center of Gothenburg. A small room, yet with a nice spa and nearby a few good gyms.
We stayed here for 3 nights and although great area we didn't enjoy fully- due to poor sleep with above neighbors and noisy nearby lift. Our friend, also on teh 1th floor, above the bar woke up late at night with life music.
When asking for a different room we got one- which was slightly bigger as well.
The service and breakfast were absolutely great, just be prepared to use the provided earplugs.
Take a prepaid taxi to/ from the airport; saved us 50%.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not on the 1th floor and best not nearby the lifts

This is a great hotel for visiting Gothenburg for business or leisure. The facilities are great and the city center is in walking distance. Hotel has been booked by our business partner which has the office within 5 min walking distance. Rooms are very well equipped, free internet and a good breakfast. The staff is very friendly. This will be my choice for my next visit to Gothenburg for sure

We stayed at the Plaza Elite Hotel for two nights on a first visit to Gothenburg.

We arrived by train late evening and to get to the hotel by taxi it cost us about 100 SEK (when we left mid- afternoon it cost us 150 SEK).

We booked and received and Executive Deluxe room on a top floor.

The room was very spacious, separated in two by a low wall that delineated the seating and bed area. The tv was mounted on a pole so that it could be turned to face either the bed or seating area. The bathroom was very small but wonderfully equipped - great amenities (I.e., wonderful soaps, toothbrush, vanity kits, shoe polish sponge, face cloth, etc). It was very clean. The ceilings were at a slight angle as it was on the top floor, but nothing that you'd hit your head on. The view over the roof tops was very relaxing. There is construction on the street but we absolutely didn't hear anything. The only slight drawback about the room was the light beige carpet - its very clean but you worry about being the one who will dirty it! :)

The breakfast was excellent - loads of choice - great coffee.

We ate at the Bishops Arms (Swedish ? chain), a pub that is attached to the hotel and found the food quality to be good and the choice of beers to be excellent.

All the staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome. Good customer service.

The location was good, i.e., we walked at night and felt very comfortable, but as this was our first visit and such a short stay I can't comment on whether this was the best place to sightsee from. We liked it as it suited the low key factor of this part of our trip. (It is a good place if you are looking to do some shopping.)

I can easily recommend this hotel and would absolutely return - I can't say that we had any complaints or found anything lacking - they deserve the great reviews.

Room Tip: There are two sides you can face from a room - either the street or courtyard - the courtyard actual...

This was my second stay at this property and it's an excellent choice for those visiting Gothenburg - centrally-located, good value and extremely comfortable with friendly, efficient and helpful staff. I was in a standard (single) room and it was absolutely fine; cozy without being cramped, very comfortable bed and a small-ish but perfectly adequate shower room. I'm not sure how much of the building is original but the hotel has a lovely, inviting character - and the bar is a really relaxing spot in which to enjoy pre- or post-dinner drinks. My only criticism would be of the dining room/breakfast experience. On my first morning, it all seemed a little bit sloppy (tables not cleared and reset; no one checking what you might need etc), however, the choice and quality of the food on offer was excellent. And on the second morning, when I had an early start, breakfast didn't begun until 0730 which, for a Saturday, does seem a bit late.

The hotel has a wonderful central location, close to the cathedral and the Hamn Canal. It's also close to the Domkyrkan tram stop, but within easy walking distance of pretty well everything we wanted to visit. We found the staff very pleasant and friendly. The room was adequate but perhaps a bit disappointing for the price, and the breakfasts were excellent.

Some tips. We were relieved of 170 SEK for the privilege of taking a taxi from the bus terminus. Buy a Gothenburg Pass on-line before you leave home and take the number 6 tram from Nordstan, (direction Kortedala.) No one asks to see your pass on the tram, the approaching stops are announced and displayed, and you get off at Domkyrkan.

The breakfasts are wonderful. As others have observed, the breakfast room can get quite busy but you can take your breakfast into the bar. It's best not to put everything on your plate at once. You can go back a second time. Going three times avoids the need for lunch.

You might take a drink before dinner in The Bishop's Arms, the hotel's English-themed (!) cellar bar. It's convenient, pleasant enough, but during our stay it had only one Swedish beer on draught. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant. There are some wonderful fish restaurants nearby.

And if you fancy a night cap, check the prices before you order. Otherwise you could end up paying 638 SEK for a brandy, a rum and two small espressos.
