Reviewed June 30, 2012

We were very dissapointed.
The good thing about the hotel is that it is really near the Central Railstation. (And yes, you can see and hear the trains through the windows).
The sleeping quality is quite good...
And now comes all the negative things. You can take a look at the pictures.
*Noisy: you can hear the trains and the neighbours (you don´t want to know what the do or how...)
*Dirty: dust at the furniture and in the bathroom, dirt at the furniture (t.ex. bed)
*Breakfast: no "healthy" alternatives with less fat. Coffee is not drincable at all. I had to sat to get some new articles when they were out of something.
*Newly renovated? The renovation is very bad and I am not sure that the whole hotel got renovated.
*9.a.m. The cleaner knocks at the door and asks if we are ready (check out is at 11 a.m.)... 9 a.m.? I thought they had some lists to check off, which rooms are ready to be cleaned. Not tht good to get up earlier than planned....
* We couldn´t lock the door, so we had to contact the reception staff that told us that the doors are "wronlgy installed", so you can´t lock them from inside. It locks automatically whithin 45 sec. Why couldn´t we get the information before???
*The rooms are very small, thera is no place for the bags....

I cannot recommend the hotel to anybody. I didn´t get a feellng of staying at 4-stars hotel.

This hotel was a nice surprise.
You look and hear that it is right near train tracks and you think noise, but not so. The double glazing of the windows do its job very well.
Unfortunately the rooms got quite warm at night time and the aircon was not that good.
Very central to central train station and only short walk to shopping district.
The only gripe I have (and really not the hotels fault) was the kids using the stairs and elevator as a playground at 11pm. The hotel staff should have been the ones to say something to the parents as other people should not have to put up with the little darlings when you pay good money to stay somewhere.

This is a Hotel mostly for couples I think (there´was no children around),
located just five minutes walk from Gothenburg City Center with many, very nice
restaurants and great shopping.
The Hotel doesn´t look much on the outside but inside it´s very nice and cosy.
And, The Breakfast, so big, so tasty and so nice presented. Wow!
We stayed there two nights, two persons for only 110 euros, (maybe a little bit
to small room, but clean, nice and quiet).
And finally: The Staff where so nice to us (and all the other guests).

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noice. (We stayed at the 5th floor, there was no noice from cars a...

Great newly renovated rooms, comfy beds, may not be huge but perfectly ok for a night or two.
Really cosy, hip lobby and restaurant, well presented, tasty breakfast with lots of choice. Very friendly, helpful staff. And a tip, if u are a member (or become one, it's free) you get a complimentary to toblerone bar, yum!

I stayed there one night in August, at the end of my holiday. The hotel was close to the railway station (walking distance), and offers very good value for money. The room (single) was small, but clean and well equipped with towels and toiletries, and an excellent bed. It was quiet, and the breakfast was super.The people who worked there, were all VERY helpful and friendly, and it was very good value for money. I`ll be back.

Rica are just completing a full refurbishment of this hotel and it has been finished to a good standard, although they should have invested in a second lift. The room was way too small for two people and the air-conditioning did not work very well. We were told that this was an issue that they were resolving.

The triple glazing keeps the sound of the trains outside to a minimal level, but if you have to open the windows beacuse the air-conditioning does not work....

The hotel is conveniently located close to city centre amenities. Breakfast was good quality and a wide variety of items were available.
