Stayed at this hotel in April for Business. It was a very comfortable hotel with good amenities. Room was very spacious & quality inclusions. Hotel is located very central to Trains & Trams & a short walk to the main Gothenburg city area. Breakfasts were of a high standard & variety. Specialist chef was available each morning to cook eggs & omelets to your liking. Very friendly & helpful staff. A nice stay.

Brilliant place to stay in the very heart of Gothenburg. Stunning, absolutely gorgeously decorated. Fresh and beautiful rooms, charming and welcoming staff. On the rooftop you can enjoy a dip in the pool, overlooking the city. The restaurant is not to be missed, they serve world class food with a nice smile and all attention to you.

Classic and formal from outside (once it was a post office) fashion and modern inside! We had a nice stay for the new year night. Unfortunately the view from our window was on the inner court and we didn't dare to try the outdoor pool (it was raining and windy). However, we have had a pleasant say and the breakfast the morning after was simply fantastic! Using special offers it's possible to stay within the budget.

Antonio,
Thank you for the five star review. Realy happy to read that you liked the breakfast and interior desig. You should have tried our pool . It is around 32 degrees warm all year around so no problem taking a swim eventhoug it is raining and windy.

You have to contact med next time you are in Gothenburg . I will make sure that you get a room with a better view.

Location can hardly be better if you arrive by train or shuttle bus from Landvetter airport. Big room with high ceelings, fantastic roof top pool with a view almost to Denmark. Good gym with brand new equipment, didn't miss anything. Breakfast were chaos with a lot of standing in line and dishes that were not refilled.

Dear CarlSoeder,
Thank you for your tripadvisor review. We are happy to hear that you liked the room and gym. Likewise it is not good that we did not meet your expectations when visiting our breakfast area.

The breakfast is important and we are therefor sad that you experienced chaos and lots if dishes etc.

Your views and thoughts are vital to us, and will be presented to the management at Post in order to improve our services.

Hoping to welcome you soon in the near future.

this hotel used to be the central post sorting offices, so very interesting building, but has been excellently converted into a chic and convenient hotel - but not so chic it only has a restricted client base. It is a place for everyone to enjoy, old young, singles couples, family. Being the post offices it is also perfectly located for Central Station (next door - but no noise at all from here, not that I heard), centre of city, tram and bus lines, next to central bus station for long distance, across road from some main shopping areas, the stadiums (few minutes walk). But despite this it is in a clear sqaure, not noisy, not overrun with busy people
Inside the bars are very popular with local people, obviously the 'in' place to gather, and lots of music, but again, not disturbing to rest of hotel which is quiet. THe dining area is away from the bars. Excellent food and I doubt whether you get a better breakfast selection anywhere else in Goeteborg or many other places for that matter. Free internet on TV. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms (well the ones I and colleagues had) very spacious (but why no draws to put things?), well equipped. Definitely a place to stay in Goeteborg if you are looking this standard of hotel.

Room Tip: if you have a top floor room with round window - find out how to close the curtains so you have no l...

My friend and I spend a couple of nights in this hotel and had a fantastic stay. Majority of the reception staff were very friendly and helpful with a couple of exceptions but that is life. Breakfast was lovely (and there was butter!) and more than enough to please all. We ate in the restaurant, had a lovely meal which wasnt cheap but it is Sweden. The bar was a great place to have a drink and people watch and was very always buzzing with different people from business men to locals. The rooftop pool was beautiful with great views no need to climb any towers. The central station and shopping center was close by and the nightlife were also easily accessible. Would definitely recommend and would come back to this hotel if I was in Gothenburg again.

Room Tip: A hotel at the front of the hotel for a good view.

Warrbenn,
Lovely review 5 out of 5 stars. Rest assured that we will share your kind words with our entire Clarion Hotel Post team. Were also hapy that you liked the great variety of food on our breakfast buffé. Just to inform you we have improved our pool area and now equipped it with some more plants and flowers.

So you probably enjoy your visit even more next time you visit us.

Hoping to welcome you soon in the near future.

I spent a night here with my wife, to get away for a day. The lobby, the bar and the restaurant is very nice, but the room (superior) feels a little too standard for a getaway weekend to splurge. However, if you just want a central convenient hotel with great bathroom (shower and tub), and best breakfast buffet in town, then it's perfect.
However, there are some minor details that make it below the top mark. For instance (I realize I may sound like a snob, but the hotel is expensive and expectations are high), the bathroom has no floor heating, and is poorly planned. The bedroom has a boring standard hotel layout, and there are no slippers.
I think it's perfect for business travellers or families (assuming they have family rooms) who want to enjoy a great breakfast.

The post office on Drottningtorget in Gothenburg is an impressive, much-appreciated public building.

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
