Scandic Europa is situated in the very central part in Göteborg, only 3-4 minutes by foot from Göteborg Central station and the Airport Coaches. Only 30 seconds from the hotel entrance you find the entrance to “Nordstan”,the most large-sized shopping mall in Göteborg. So this hotel can perhaps be an alternative for you, above all if you find an affordable price.

However, there are some disadvantages also. Not far from the hotel entrance you can see some young people you don’t appreciate to see. It can be difficult to understand, but Sweden is a country which has a huge immigration from countries in Middle East and North Africa and they are assigning apartments in suburbs to Göteborg. However, a lot of youngsters who don’t study or have any job, take in the evening the tram to the central part of Göteborg and they gather around Nordstan and sometime they disturb people who are passing. Unfortunately, as a consequence, the crime rate has risen a lot during the last decade with pickpockets, assaults and robberies etc. So please be aware of this and avoid going out alone in the late evening in this area. And if you haven’t seen any woman in a burqa before, it’s more probably you will see this here during daytime than in other towns in western Europe.

The room was OK, but unfortunately, I could find a lot of dust in the wooden furniture. Also the windows have to be cleaned if you would like to see out from the room when the sun is shining. But, on the other hand, it’s nothing to see from the window as there are not so good looking buildings in the surroundings.

The television set looked very old-fashioned. I surfed internet about the model number and found this information: bit.ly/REndQH Unfortunately I couldn’t find out when it was manufactured, but I suppose it was from the 1990’s or perhaps earlier than that, above all as the picture quality was coarse-grained.

The Internet is free at all Scandic Hotels and here it was extremely fast from the room. 20,5 Mbit/sec! At the restaurant they serve a “summer menu” for less than 300 SEK. Unfortunately, that dinner is not worth the price as the food seemed to be prepared without any cooking hapiness. So I really recommend you to go to another restaurant in Göteborg, as the town has a lot of high-quality restaurants.

The breakfast was good as it normally is in Swedish hotels. And: The staff were very, very, very kind and service minded!

To recommend? Yes, if you get a price around 125 € and prefer to stay at the hotel in the evening. It’s a "three plus" (3+) star hotel, not more than that.

This Scandic is one of two within eyesight of Gothenburg Central Station. It's the one practically in the shopping mall. The good news is that it's small, so the (delicious) free breakfast room isn't overcrowded like the Scandic Europa in Copenhagen.

There's also a pool and a sauna (no hot tub), but they close at 10pm which is a slight bummer.

The WiFi is incredible. Easily the fastest free hotel WiFi I've ever tried. For the business traveler, this is the single most important thing to get right. And this hotel gets it right. In fact, I tried a Scandic in Copenhagen and it too had amazingly quick (and free) internet.

The bed was very comfortable, and the room was immensely clean. But, per usual in Europe, we had two tiny beds shoved together to create "one." Typical American complaint, but a single queen size bed is really preferred. The staff was super, super friendly and made me wish that hotels in America could find people this happy to work for them. What a difference a genuine person behind the counter makes.

Stayed there for weekend. Room was not too big. Quite fresh.
Didn't like those big containers with soup and shower gel. I know, I know, it's environment friendly. Still I find more convinient toiletries in small containers.
Hotel is conveniently located in Nordstan and near the Central station. (There plenty of them actually in that area)
Breakfast was good, common scandinavian. Was crowded Sunday morning around 9am.
It's quite decent hotel. It probably wouldn't give you wow experience, but in the same it wouldn't disappoint you.

Good location, right next to the Central railway station and the main bus terminal for coaches to and from both Gothenburg airports. Within walking distance of most city sights and parks, including the Ullevi stadiums.

Smart, clean rooms. Good choice at the breakfast buffet. Expensive prices at the bar!

Long queues for checking out. It didn't bother us as we had prepaid so if you are in a rush I would suggest paying the bill the evening before.

Marked down for value - you can't expect good value for money ratings when prices shoot up for 'special events' in the city!

Room Tip: Settle your bill the night before to avoid long checkout queues.

Situated in the heart of Nordstan.
Large rather impersonal hotel but very good standard. Pool, sauna and gym available.
Very comfortable bed and duvet!
The breakfast buffet was slightly messy, perhaps due to many people.
