“Very complete hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

I have been staying at this hotel multiple times now, and have seen how the renovation brought it back to the standards of nowadays business hotels. The rooms are classy, complete for both business as well as family stay.
The bar is nice but busy in the evenings: come in time if you are to sit a group.
The breakfast offer is very complete.
There is a gym, but I have not used it, so cannot comment.
The location of the hotel is very convenient: opposite to the Gothenburg Central Station and walking distance from shopping and restaurant area.
Do not forget to walk to the glasshouse in the park behind the hotel: an unexpected number of roses are kept there, as well as palm trees...!!

Always a pleasure to visit friendly Sweden. And even better to be in such a friendly hotel, great staff, good breakfast, always clean fresh pleasant rooms.
Location is in centre, great restaurants a short walk away. A hotel recommended by Volvo Welcome centre.

Room Tip: NA, all rooms are fine....

The hotel is central, well connected to transport and clean. The bed was comfortable but the furnishiings are looking dated and slightly worn. Free wifi is a bonus, but there a few issues which detract from the overall experience.

1) The breakfast buffet was ok, but the fresh fruit was not up to the standard of other Radissons.
2) there was poor water pressure in the shower (5th floor) and the grouting between the tiles was grimy and falling out. As a whole the bathroom looked worn and patched up.
3)If you are paying upwards of 200€ a night, why should you pay extra for use of the pool/sauna?
4)I booked online using Carlson points and cash. I arrived, gave my name, and was promptly told "Are you sure you are in the right hotel?" followed by a lecture about there being another Radisson hotel in Gothenburg even before I had given my booking number.When I did, I had to insist that she checked it. Booking found. No apology, and the receptionist then walked off to speak to a colleague. Overall, the receptionist was rude, patronising and unprofessional.

I would think twice about staying here again, not until it is refurbished.

Perfect downtown location. Across the street from trains and great shopping.
Stayed for a couple of weeks and truly enjoyed the staff and hotel. Food was excellent. The rooms were had several themes and all were very nice. Looking over the street and watching the people was fun. Though right downtown, it was quiet.

I just got back from another perfect stay at this really nice hotel! Spacious room and although the room overlooked the street there was no distubance during the night and it was nice to be able to open the windows! The breakfast was wonderful and so much to taste and cahoose from! I really liked the the small teakettles available to make tea! Service was very fast and effective! The staff is overall very efficient and helpful ! I will stay there again!

We stayed there for 2 nights and were very happy with our choice of hotel. Its location couldn't be more central. We got off airport coach and the hotel is only 5 min away on foot. It's surrounded by shops, bars, and restaurants and the room is really quiet at the same time. Room is quite spacious and bathroom is nice.

Check in wasn't until 3pm which is quite late. They did offer to store our luggage so we can kill 3 hours in the shops.

Breakfast choices are excellent. Service is ok but could be a bit more attentive.

The only thing I need and they don't have is a shower cap. For me, every hotel should have shower caps!

Room Tip: 5th floor don't have the tiny balcony that faces the inner court yard, other floors have them. R...
