“Good hotel, spacious rooms and friendly staff”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

This is a great business hotel, ideally situated next to the Central Station and in walking distance of the main restaurants and bars in Gothenburg. The hotel is good although you could say basic, however it is clean, comfortable and offers a good morning breakfast. This is an ideal hotel for the business traveler or for a weekend beak.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor, from level 4 and upwards to avoid any noise from the station.

Stayed at First G for two nights on trip to Gothenburg with friends. Very central location arriving Gothenburg with train or bus as the hotel is built above the Central Station. Very nice Champagne bar at the hotel. The rooms was clean and okay. Nothing extra but we really enjoyed our stay. Could recommend for business or friends, but would probably not go there for a romantic week-end or with children.

This hotel is built above the the central train station. Very convenient location for someone arriving to Gothenburg by train. The hotel is big, maybe too big to be cosy. My room had a nice size, was clean and had a view. The breakfast buffet was ok but nothing extra. The restaurant was surprisingly good and the gym a pleasant and interesting experience. You sit on your treadmill while looking down on the platforms and departing trains. One of the more interesting gym experiences I have had!

Room Tip: Opt for a room with a view, preferably overlooking the station.

central and modern. technical troubles with electronic keys which lowers my rating, I hope that is fixed now. Nice central bar, just over the reilway station makes you feel you are in the miodst of "the flow".

Stayed at the hotel for one night, came late from the airport and left the following morning by train.

What I liked was the walkways with the overlook over the streets and the trainstation. The room and bathroom was spacious compared to other hotells I stayed in to that price, and I liked the contemporary scandinavian style. It was quiet. I got a rom with window inwards to the closed atrium, and that´s a minus, the lack of fresh air. I want to be able to open a window, especially after a shower and when I first enter a hotelroom. A plus for a wide range of choices for breakfast (though nothing extraodrinary), and a plus for the warning of crowded breakfast in weekends - but thins turned out to be a minus. Maybe everybody followed the warning to come before 9.00 on saturday, because it was too crowded to be enjoyable at 8.00. The guests was a good blend of familys, couples, singles etc (and it was also a large event that weekend that probably accounted for many people), and people travelling together of course talk. Quite different from having breakfast in a hotel a weekday with mostly businesstravelers, perhaps? But by 9.00 it was nice and quiet and I enjoyed reading the paper.

The location is great regarding travelling further.
