Stylish and convenient, and the fact that its not a purpose built hotel makes for an interesting layout. Small room, but thats what I paid for, and although one of the two nights was very expensive it was because Robbie Williams was in town. One annoyance - we wanted to eat at the hotel, but bizarrely in the middle of tourist season, the main restaurant was close on Sunday evening. There was a lot of demand because guests were standing in line for the terrace restaurant which does not take bookings. I would change that rule, at least for staying guests. Recommendations on breakfast timings to avoid the crowds was spot on and very helpful. Would definately stay there again.
- 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
