We stayed for two nights at the clarion odin in Gothenburg and were not satisfied with our choice (in fact, we were supposed to stay for 4 nights but left after 2).
A few good stuff first: wifi is fast and free and you do not need to log in multiple times, which comes handy. Location is convenient, near the station. An afternoon coffee with pastries and a dinner buffet are provided free of charge and beds were quite comfy. That’s about it for the pros.
For the cons: the hotel is huge and totally impersonal. The staff does not care much about you, which makes it worst. The reception is located right across the large breakfast area, so that you have the impression of checking in in a cafeteria rather than in a four star hotel. Breakfast and dinner buffet are ok, but no more, and in both cases you have to clear your table after the meal. Did someone say 4 star?
There is no air con in the rooms so opening the window comes as important. However, the way the hotel was designed, with at least half of the room overlooking the patio means that there can be noise late in the night (there is a small terrace on the patio). The curtains do not block daylight entirely and days can be long during summer time. Finally, our shower was missing a door and this made showering a painful experience. To add insult to injury, they forgot to clean our room one day and the lady at the reception did not offer a single word of apology.
As mentioned previously, the hotel is family friendly. So overall, if you are a family looking for a good bargain in Gothenburg, you might like this hotel. Otherwise, for the same price range, I would advise you to choose another (nicer) hotel.
