“Very nice little hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2009

This is a really nice hotel with very nice rooms. We had a room on the inside of the hotel overlooking their courtyard. The room had a very nice wooden floor, comfy bed, flat screen TV and a very nicely fitted en-suite bathroom.

However, the things that raised this up above the average 'nice' hotel room were six free movie channels, kitchen area for the guests use, free drinks (including juice, tea and fresh filter coffee) available 24 hours/day and two really nice lounge areas.

It's a little to the edge of the city centre, but we happily walked to Liseberg park and back - Gothenberg isn't a massive place!

There is also a very nice (and cheap!) Pizza restaurant right next door - very convenient.

If you're looking for a well priced hotel in Gothenburg that should exceed your expectations, then I would certainly recommend this one!

Great value hotel in a really good central location, Rooms were lovely and clean, breakfast was great, and it was amazing to get as much juice and hot drinks (and pastries) as we wanted 24 h/day. Perfect!

Being a 3 star hotel I wasn't expecting great things but the rooms were better than some of the 4 star hotels in London. It was roomy and very clean. The sound proofing from the outside noise was excellent.

Though there was no tea and coffee facility in the room we were able to help ourselves to unlimited complimentary refreshments of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and delicious pastries throughout the day from the downstairs breakfast area.

The only complaint I had was with the size of the breakfast area. It was always a struggle in the morning to find somewhere to sit. Not great fun when you have an over eager 2 year old. Luckily the generosity of other hotel guest ensured we always found somewhere to perch.

Found this to be an excelleny hotel in it's location, cost and amenities available. It is practically on the waterfront and is approx 10 minute walk from the city centre and the large shopping centre, Nordstan. It is also a short walk to the Jarm Torget tram stop which is at the very edge of the Hagga (old town) which contains a lot of unique shops and some wonderful bars/cafes/restaurants. Breakfast is included in the price with a choice of the usual Scandinavian cold dishes and hot ones which included scrambled egg, bacon and sausage. A eally nice touch is that they have a communal kitchen area where you are free to help yourself to hot drinks (coffee, tea, chocolate, etc) and cold juices along with cakes and biscuits throughout the day at no extra charge...they even provide a waffle maker and batter at night! The staff were very friendly and helpful (including the housekeeping staff).Travel around Gothenburg was very easy as we bought a travel pass (from one of the sweet shops next to the main Tourist Info Office) which costs from 65 kr for a 24 hour period. It can be used on the ferry service and we travelled to Eriksberg on the other side of the water where we witnessed the well developed warefront apartments and boardwalk and had lunch in the sun outside Nellie's Cafe. We also managed to take in the Liseberg Park which had some very different rides and the nearby Universeum which features underwater wildlife (including sharks) and replicates the Rainforest. Everyone we met spoke perfect English (which puts us Brits to shame) and could not have been more helpful. WE will certainly be returning to the city and this hotel.

We were visiting Goteborg for 2 nights early Jan. We were travelling to Goteborg as foot passengers on the ferry from Frederikshavn, Denmark, so needed somewhere close to the ferry terminal. Fantastic location and very nice style to the hotel. Very clean and really nice room, with very comfy bed and a great buffet breakfast - as much as you can eat. There's complementary snacks available during the day, even a DIY waffle maker and plenty of warm drinks to help yourself to. Would definately recommend this place if you want to be central to Goteborg, but out of the busy part of the town.

  • Liked — Very tidy hotel with great bedroom style
  • Disliked — N/A

The Comfort Hotel is well situated for the city centre , with good restaurants just round the corner. The room was standard size , clean with very comfy, warm beds. The staff were helpful and they served a very good hot/cold breakfast and excellent free coffee and DIY waffles after 4pm. Happy to stay there again.

Again, this was a hotel I stayed at while on a work trip with one other colleague who lucky enough was also my friend.

Only stayed here for 3 nights but it was nice & central.
Also, the room i stayed in was a nice size with a little corridor to the bathroom which was nice & there was a huge wardrobe. I had a terrible view out the window to a yard area!
My colleague's room was smaller in height as she was staying on the top floor but she had a great view over the city.

We did not have dinner there but we did have the buffet breakfasts each morning which was great. Plenty of choice & tasty food.

The lift here was also very small & reminded me of the lift in a block of apartments I stayed had stayed at while working in Sundsvall in Apr 2004.

Overall though a nice hotel.

  • Liked — The location & the breakfast
  • Disliked — The lift & the view in my room.
