“Central with a nice bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

I visited Post with my wife and some friends for a city break. The hotel is central, they offer parking in a nearby shopping mall. The rooms are nice. I was looking forward to visiting the relax area, witch was only a roof top pool, no sauna. Not to tempting in +3 degrees(it was cold). Sauna and jacuzzi was available for a fee(250 sek pr person in the spa.) The bar was great, 2 floors,with a dj on the 1 st floor and a bit more quiet in the 2 nd. Rich breakfast.

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

Tore,
Great reading your review posted at tripadvisor. Happy to hear about your room and breakfast experience. You should have tried our top floor pool though. The water is 35 degrees so should not be any problems taking a dip even though it is +3 degrees in the air.

Hoping to welcome you back in the near future . And please contact me then .
Best regards,

Great ambiance for such a big hotel. Rooms were nicely decorated, comfortable and very practical location, only 1 min to walk to the central stadion. Breakfast buffet had a good selection, but very crowd. The room service was 24/7 and the servings were enourmous! Very good food. Guest service was quick too. Overall a comfortable and nice stay!

Dear Victoria,
Thank you for posting a great review on Tripadvisor. Happy to read that you like our breakfast buffet and apreciatde our food. A bit unfortunate though that you experienced a bit of a crowded restaurant. My advice is to visit the restaurant a little earlier when our hotel is fully booked. Might be at bit more roomy until 09:30 . Or rest in bed and then pay a visit to our delicious Norda Brunch starting at 12:00 Saturday and Sunday.

Hoping to welcome you back in the near future,
Best regards,
Lars.olemyr@choice.se

Great location, central in Göteorg, 1 min from the train (where I usually arrive). The upper bar area has been the place for good informal meetings and drinks. I love the whole lobby and restaurant area and its decoration. The pool on top of the roof is OK though I only tried it when the weather hasn't been the best (which is not all that unusual in this region..) My first visit to the main restaurant was fantastic but the last time was a bit of a disappointment, whit serving staff not up to class. Rooms are spacious. I like the rooms in the old part best, preferably with windows facing Trädgårn, "the garden". If you like a view, opt for the new building. Best breakfast buffé.

Our room was Ok, the location was Ok, the service was Ok, the value for money was Ok and the breakfast was more than Ok (in fact the food was great, but the restaurant was overcrowded and noisy!). Of course it is a big hotel, but nevertheless.... - there are better hotels in Gothenburg.

Det var ett tag sedan vi var där sa det kanske har blivit battra.
We stayed there months ago so perhaps it's better now. There was no place for the dresses and the floor was cold (it was winter).
The first night I couldn't sleep because of the noise; some party was going on. They promised to make us a discount but we never saw it !

I want to enjoy this hotel and give a glowing review, I really do. The hotel is welcoming, fresh and clean, has a great location, the rooms are comfortable, the staff is friendly and the breakfast tastes great. However, the hotel is way too crowded, it just seems as the hotel not is adjusted to the vast number of guests. The bar is crowded, the breakfast restaurant is crowded and stressfull, the elevators are crowded, and there are long waiting lines in the reception to check in and out.

The last time I stayed at this hotel, in 2012, I encountered the same problems. However, as the hotel was new, I guessed this was because of start up problems. It was also in the middle of the summer with lot of tourists. However, 1,5 years on, in the middle of February, nothing had changed. It just seems as the hotel has more rooms and guests than it is build to handle.
