“Enjoyable stay, great location”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

The location of this hotel, ABOVE the central train station, was perfect for us as we arrived in Gothenburg by train. Couldn't have been more convenient. You follow signs for Hotel, leave the station and re-enter another door which takes you up by escalator to the hotel reception and lounge/restaurant - nicely decorated and comfortable, with big windows overlooking the station concourse. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are arranged in 4 blocks, with windows that overlook internal courtyards - so there's a slightly gloomy feel to the rooms as there's no direct light and I don't think you could open the windows. But apart from that, the rooms were very clean, comfortable, nice bathrooms, nice toiletries, decent breakfast buffet. There seemed to be lots of international business clientele staying, but also families and couples. We felt it was a good choice, and it was a very comfortable and convenient base from which to explore this lovely city - with the brilliant trams stopping just outside the door.

Stayed for one night. The room was clean and tidy. Nothing special, unfotunately no view at all, only to an atrium inside the building.
Comfortable bed, very quiet room.The bathroom floor was wet allover after one of us had used the shower...
Nice breakfast, as expected at this type of hotel
The location is perfect: We travelled by train, and just around the corner :There it is!

Room Tip: Ask for room with a window for outside view!

I liked everything about this hotel. Location was perfect, tasty food in the restaurant, comfortable bed. The personnel was very helpful. I would recommend this hotel both for business meetings and shopping weekends.

This is in the same building of Gothenburg station. go up to the 1st floor and walk over the short bridge over the station shop area to checkin counter.
Airport bus, train across sweden is just a minute. nordostan shoppong mall and other tourist-loving aread are nearby, resutaurants are also walking distance.

I stayed here one night as part of a tour. It was a very nice hotel. Quiet & clean. Comfortable bed. Free wi-fi. Perfect location - above the train station, accross the street from major shopping and a block from the huge park. Tasty breakfast. No complaints.

Size of room good.
Beds were OK.
A small well feed fridge and a full baket of Swedish candy at reasonable cost.
The furniture and textiles were worn and dirty. The curtains had to cover the windows that were facing neighbors only.
Coffee brewer completely covered with dust.
The bathroom has only one shower door which means that the water covers the whole floor after a shower and the the floor does not have any slope to the drainage.
Breakfast not bad.
Somewhat far from the parking but location is just above the railway station. No disturbing sounds.
Would we come back? Probably not.

Firstly if you are coming or going by train, this is as good as it gets. Modern and clean, and slightly strange feeling that you are almost in the station when you check-in. Breakfast was OK, but not the best we had in Sweden. Room was a good size, but because of location on top of the station no view to speak of (just internal view). If I was not using the train, would probably have chosen something else.
