The Hotel has an enviable position in the city centre; infact it is near the “Avenyn” (about 3-5 minute on foot), the main shopping street in Goteborg, and the Haga area (very picturesque with its coloured houses and nice café). Nearby the Hotel there are many restaurants, a supermarket (Hemkop, in Vasagatan) and the tram stop. The area is very safe, even if the night club in front of the hotel is noisy until 2 am (so if you are in a room with the window in the street you should stand the noise!). I and my husband stayed here for 2 night in August 2010 and we booked a double the room by the hotel website, but when we arrived at the hotel they gave us a twin room, so we complained and demanded a double room (as we order); the girl at the reception didn’t want to change us the room, but when we showed her the e-mail print she had to change us the room! The second day, when we came back to the hotel in the evening we found the same towel of the day before (they didn’t change us them!), so we asked for clean towels, and the girl at the reception sent them in the elevator (but directly on the floor!...very dirty…). In that Hotel you must have breakfast in the price of the night, so we had breakfast for 2 morning: the food was of low quality and with limited choice and forks, knifes and glasses were dirty! Moreover the room hasn’t an air conditioner, so it’s very hot! The room furniture was essential. However the hotel has a computer for guest in the small hall, so you can use free internet and print documents if you need.
Finally I suggest this hotel to stay in Goteborg for 1 or 2 nights (because of its position), but the price is too expensive for the service they provide (but I think that it’s because you’re in Sweden!).
