“Good value for good price”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This is a medium-priced hotel at the rim of central Gothenburg. The staff is very friendly and service-minded. Thanks to good public transportation possibilities everything feels quite nearby, even though the hotel itself is not at walking distance to most tourist spots. The rooms are good and very well isolated against noice. Breakfast is also good. In conclusion, this hotel offers good value at an affordable price.

Great location, nice hotel.helpful staff. We were easily able to park on side streets to avoid the high cost of parking at the hotel. Parking in Oslo is tricky. The area was good for parking and eating close to the hotel.

Dear guest,

I think you´ve posted this review on the wrong hotel.
Our hotel is located in Gothenburg, Sweden. Only a few hours drive from Oslo, Norway but still not correct. Our hotel offers free parking...

Hotel was in good location for conference but also for city centre. Great tram network. . Near a stop. .5 mins. Also right beside motorway. . Sadly. .. But fortunately I was on other side of hotel so completely unaffected. Just bit odd that you walk up to motorway and it's facing motorway down a quiet street. . No signs and not so welcoming from the outside. But step in and its a different story!

Friendly staff. . Room cosy but clean and everything I needed. Hotel clean and nice decking area. Bar area small but nice to have somewhere to go when first arrived as nothing round the corner.

Would recommend. Good price. Would like to relocate it but quiet and tram stop there so can't complain.

Thank you!

Dear guest,

thank you for your review, it means a lot to us.
The hotel is located in an area that is currently changing a lot; new apartments and offices are being built and the connection to the city center is getting closer.
We have just finished renovating the facade and windows, and this is the reason why there are no signs on the hotel, they´ll be up shortly!
Thank you for your positive comments regarding our staff.
Welcome back!
Kind regards

Based on what we paid (a reduced price off Expedia), we thought the hotel was great value. Our single room was spacious and clean. The furnishings were modern and the interior is well-designed. The heated towel racks and light wood floors are nice touches. It also seemed like we had the pool table, table tennis, and a sauna facilities to ourselves. The breakfast buffet was delicious and staff were friendly and helpful.

Parts of the hotel were still under renovation. Some of the rooms still need noise-reducing windows to be installed since the hotel is by a major highway. The construction did not affect our stay at all, and our room was very quiet - I believe we already had one of the new windows installed.

The location is a bit of a walk from central station. But everything is easily reachable via tram (though public transit is quite expensive).

Nice hotel,not far from The city centre. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Only Thing you need to have In your mind...it is next to motorway and if you have a room facing that motorway it is laud. As The hotel is under construction expect more noice than just cars.

Dear guest,

thank you for your positive comments regarding your stay with us.
We are changing windows on all rooms facing the motorway, hence the scaffolding outside the hotel. This work is scheduled to end by mid May 2014.
So for your next visit we hope to offer you a more quiet room.

Dear guest,

I am so sorry to learn that you did not appreciate your stay with us.

We are a 3star hotel, and we have refurbished all 170 rooms and bathrooms during 2012 and 2013, and we are currently exchanging all windows facing the busy road.
I will discuss your comments regarding heating and staff with the rest of my team to avoid repeting this in the future.
I sincerely hope you can give us another chance for your next visit in Gothenburg.
Kind regards
