“Staff and location is incredible, but rooms very worn”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

If you just need a bed for sleeping in, it is a okay hotel.
The staff is superb and location for experience Gothenburg is excellent, as it is located in the middle of the city, close to Nordstan, Skandinavium and Liseberg. It is also possible to get a cup of coffee with cake every afternoon. Wireless internet is for free.
BUT the rooms are very worn out, especially the bathroom is poor. The toiletseat was broken, the bath was not strapped and rocking around when we used it. There was burning marks on the sink. The floor in the room was very cold, as there is no carpet. The beds was worn and needed to be changed. The breakfast was borring with very dry bread.
If you dont have high standard for staying the hotel is okay, but if yoiu stay in the city for several days and need a place to rest between sightseeing, we would not recommend this hotel

Perfectly situated in downtown Gothenbourg you find this affordable hotel. Friendly staff. On the down side are the curtains that do not cover the full window. Might be OK during winter but with the bright summer nights in Sweden you will not be able to sleep.

A hotel we stayed in becaus we got a very good deal. The hotel is near Avenyen ,the main street , with a lot of restaurants and shops.The rooms are newly refurbished but you can't hide that this is like a dormitory-building . You can park outside for 100 skr., which is Ok for a whole day , but If you only stay the night on the way to somewhere else , you have a parking area 30 meters away for half the price. The internet was weak outside the lobby/breakfast area,and din not work in our room. Very good breakfast.

we arrived at the photo at 10pm, wasted a bit time to locate the building due to darkness and rain. but once arrived, found the location is reasonable and walkable to the central station and spots. staff are helpful and nice. variety of breakfast is more than I expect.
improvement: can consider extending the curtain, can't cover the whole room...lack of privacy...

Vastly overpriced. Rooms small and basic. Breakfast okay but not enough room for all guests, had to take my food back to room. One positive was the reception staff, all very friendly and very helpful.

At 1250 SEK a night this place is a no go. Seems like some people paid less, but I would give maximum 800 SEK for a double room there. Breakfast area is too small and got overcrowded. Not that it's a really bad hotel, but if you're looking right now, try another place ...
