First off, the only thing I found difficult was planning in advance our route from the airport to the hotel. What I recommend is what we figured out upon arrival. Take the "Flygbussarna" from Landvetter Airport to the city center. Get off at the last stop--Nils Ericson bus terminal. At the terminal, go to the "Vasttrafik" booth, draw a number to get your place in line, and when it's your turn at the window, purchase a pass for 1-3 days all-you-can-ride use of the local public transportation (including the ferries to the islands!). We purchased the type of pass that's just for transportation, although there's another type that gets you free entry into some of the local tourist attractions. From there, catch tram #9 heading toward "Kungssten." You'll get off at the stop "Chapmans Torg," from which it's a 1-minute walk to the Spar Hotel.
The hotel was GREAT! We stayed 4 nights for a combined business/pleasure trip. Staff were so helpful advising us on transportation to our conference, recommending places to see and things to do, answering every annoying touristy question we had with grace and cheer. The room was small but immaculately clean. No air conditioning, but the night air coming in through the windows made it cool enough to sleep. Breakfast was a fantastic, hearty spread of breads and toppings, those delicious waffles (go early to avoid a line for the waffle iron!), cereals, yogurt, fruit, eggs, etc. Yum! I had such a wonderful time in Gothenburg, and if I could go there again, I'd stay at Spar Hotel again!
