I just looked for a hotel to spend one night at during a cross-country trip. when I pulled up I doubt my choice, as the neighborhood did not look so great (though someone familiar with the area might disagree). But the hotel was great: renovated, modern, clean. The room and bathroom were good and comfortable. Breakfast was great! There is free parking available, unfortunately the garage was full when I checked in. all-in-all: good choice for a one night stop.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. It was half a business and half a lesure trip. Everything was precisely as we expected. We booked a small double. The room was small, but clean. The bed was comfortable and its size 140 was enough for us. The bathroon was tidy. As for budget hotel the breakfast was perfect. There were plenty of cold dishes and hot was enough, bread was good too. Location was convinient to reach many areas of the city by tram. The garage was a big advantage for us too. As a result, everything was perfect for this price (95 EUR per night) in such a country as Sweden :)
Disadvantage: We couldn't sleep with open window because of the traffic noise outside. But we had known about that before staying here, therefore we didn't have any complaints about that.

Room Tip: I guess maybe rooms not on the main street side but on the yard side would be beter because of the t...

Hotel ok for one night or 2, not more.
I went there with 2 friends and I was grateful they had triple rooms. However one bed looked more like a guest/spare bed than a proper bed and it was as comfortable as a guest/spare bed!
The breakfast buffet was excellent, the staff at the reception desk was helpful is explaining us what to see/do in Gothenburg.
My only big problem was the cleanliness of the bathroom. There were some red stains (blood? ketchup?) on the shower curtain and on the door. Moreover beware, there is no fridge/mini bar in the room.

A quick and easy check in, clean and warm rooms, brilliant breakfast buffet, helpful and efficient staff. Only about 15 minutes to the city centre on the tram which stops almost outside the front door. Good value and the free wi-fi is an essential nowadays.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear have less tram noise.
