This hotel has a proper quality feel, and good theme being based on the old post office building. There are some nice touches, with art and post boxes scattered about.
The room was on the small side, but high specification. There was space for everything and the wifi was fast.
The only real glitch was the shower - it was too good! - the power of the nozzle means that it falls of the wall! I soon learned though.
Also the restaurant is good and packed with locals so be sure to book a table - preferably when you book the room. I didn't manage to get in there in 4 nights on my last trip.
I am looking forward to my return visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The post office on Drottningtorget in Gothenburg is an impressive, much-appreciated public building. Designed by Ernst Torulf, it is a typical 1920s building in neo-classical style and has been designated an historical building by the Swedish State. The building is now to be developed into an efficient, modern hotel facility suited to contemporary requirements for logistics and functionality.A new building containing 500 hotel rooms with a rooftop sun terrace and pool overlooking Gothenburg is to be constructed next to the old post office, on the site of the old loading yard that faces Akareplatsen and Odinsgatan. Half of the facade will be covered with slate and the other half with copper - the same materials used in the original post office building.The facade and terrace facing Drottningtorget will feature an open design, thus forming a welcoming entrance for the new hotel. From the entrance, it will also be possible to walk through the hotel out onto Akareplatsen and then on to Odinsgatan. The remaining parts of the terrace will be retained and used as an outdoor service area during the summer months. ... more less
