We spent a couple of nighs here in Sept 2011, having looked for a cheap hotel for a longweekend.
Firstly the location - a 10 min walk to the middle of the City it's ideal - very handy for the football ground and also v close to a bus station.
The young lady in reception was bubbly and friendly - happy to help out with various tourist questions too. Reception had a computer with free internet and free coffee / biscuits. A secure cupboard for left luggage a big plus.
No escaping the room is very basic - no wardrobe or drawers or ironing board or kettle or coffee or anything like that. But it was clen and the bed very soft and comfy. We had corner room which had big windows on 2 sides which semed odd ! The wifi was excellent - great to get free wifi as was the wall mounted lcd tv.
Breakfast was nice - hot bacon / meetballs and scrambled egg and all the usual cerials / bead / cheeses and cold meats.
Downsides ? Well on both nights there were periods of music coming from somewhere (Across a road ?), Also at breakfast there were more tables than dinners on Sunday morning - we waited 15 mins and went back - possinly just bad timing (Although some seasoned guests appeared to be getting their food on a tray and heading back to their rooms). As mentioned the rooms are basic (But comfortable and clean)
All these are small criticisms - concidering the costs of accomodation in Gothenberg the Allen is something of a godsend and for what we paid we were very happy.
