Located right near the bust/train station and tram lines so it's a great spot for exploring. The rooms were clean, comfortable and in modern Swedish style.

Food and wine in the hotel is very expensive, as it is in all Swedish hotels. Definitely eat out and do you research to find a good place. Our Swedish friend took us to Pinchos, a restaurant that does tapas with a twist. You download the menu app, order. Is your phone and collect your drinks and food from the bar when you get a notification. Swift service and much cheaper because they only need a few staff to work.

We also went to liseberg the Christmas market that transforms the theme park that's there ther est of the year. Definitely worth a visit one evening. Wrap up, the windchill if you walk near the port edge is biting.

This hotel is very nice, quite large rooms and a nice breakfast buffet. I had breakfast at around 9 am on one of the days, and it was very empty even though they serve breakfast until 10. Otherwise, nice place with clean rooms and good location right above the central station.

Three things makes First Hotel G my preferred destination in Gothenburg: perfect location (just above the train station and facing Nordstan shopping mall), comfortable and practical rooms, excellent breakfast.
The central location of this hotel brings everything to a walking distance.
Very efficient front desk with always 2+ attendants, making check-in and check-out a simple formality.
The only drawback was the cleanliness in the room: during my latest stay I left with the impression that the floor was not hoovered during the 3 days I spent there.

Quick stop in Gothenburg for one night - First Hotel G is an excellent choice ! In the middle of everything in the city, good price and parking close by (Nordstan). Built around and above the railway station, but very quiet ! Good breakfast and can be highly recommended for a short stay !

The hotel has a great scandinavian design. The location is superb, located on top of the central (strain) station.
Nordstan shopping center is just across the road.
The beds were very good.
The room service menu is not the best - you only have a choice of hamburger, shrimp-sandwich or a vegetarian dish + som deserts

But all in all a very good place to stay

Situated right on top of the central station in the dead center of Gothenburg, close to the Nordstan shopping mall. Nice rooms, good breakfast, friendly staff. Good value for money. Free wifi is a plus.
