“Not my kind of hotel....”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Travelled eith my family and needed a 4-bed room, we got a triple room with an extra bed. The extra bed was extremely uncomfortable and the room was rather small. Also, the hallways had a really bad smell. From outside, tje hotel looks rundown but the rooms are clean enough. Included in the price was breakfast and also a small dinner buffet, not great but good enough. The hotel lies outside Gothenburg but the tram is close by and drops you right in the center of Gothenburg. Would I stay again? Well, I would probably tryother options.

Thank you for taking the time and write your feedback from your stay at Apple Hotel!
I am sorry for your negative experiences, however we hope that you give us the oportunity to show you a better side if you choose to stay here again! For example, we have family rooms, which are larger and more comfortable if you are four people.
We are working on increasing the comfortability in the hotel and are also about to paint and freshen up the outside of the hotel, which was needed. We look forward to a more fresh-looking hotel and wish you welcome back!

Kind regards,
Anna, front desk

I found this budget place to be very clean.Staff were helpful at showing me how easy it was to get in to the tourist centre of Gothenburg. Two trams will stop three -four mins.walk away from hotel.the only thing that I recommend is that everything looks different at night.I had trouble remembering the way in dark.Easy to find hotel if you draw a diagram before you set out for a night refreshment !! Good value for money !!

Room Tip: Look at this place first on map before you decide if you want to be so far away from city centre....

Clean and tidy budget hotel on the outskirts of Gothenburg. Easy to get to city centre using public transport. Booked very reasonable B&B and offered free evening buffet. Staff very friendly and helpful.

In a city where the cost of hotel rooms are a premium for UK customers, this hotel provided a value for money alternative. It is a little out of the city, but easily reached by tram (I can't understand why those who moan about it being out of the city don't check where they are staying first!!). The hotel's decor isn't that modern, but it's generally upkept well and the rooms, whilst a little small, are sufficient and clean. The buffet dinner was ok in terms of food, but poor in terms of selection (we were staying in mid February, so perhaps the hotel was very quiet), the breakfast buffet had a much wider choice. We'd stay again, for the right price.

When approaching the Apple Hotel, I can't say my expectations were high. From the outside it appears to be in significant need of maintenance. Once inside though, I was quite happy. The reception area and bar were clean and pleasant, overlooking a secluded swimming pool, and the service was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and with a buffet style evening meal and breakfast there was no danger of us going hungry, and turned out to be very good value.

Thank you for your positive feedback! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Apple Hotel!
As you are saying, there is some need of maintenance and we are continuously working on making the hotel and your experience better. During early fall we have painted the whole outside of the hotel, which makes it look a bit better and fresher! We are also rebuilding the heat and ventilation system, all for increasing guests comfort!

We hope to welcome you again for your next stay in Göteborg and also hope to surprise you again with an even better experience!

I've selected this hotel cause it was located on my everyday route to the partner's factory, so I didn't expect much.

The room was small and not that cozy, but clean. Apple is very similar to americal motels.

However, I surprisingly found several benefits.

First, the breakfast was good. No sweets and complex meals, but there were multiple kinds of bread, fruits, yogurts and nuts -- very nice.

Second, hotel is located close to a tram stop. I've rented a car for driving to the factory, but parking in the city center is a disaster, so trams look like the best way to get there.

Room Tip: The closer to the lobby - the better Wi-Fi Internet connection.
