The hotel is located way outside Goteborg, and it will cost you about 30 euro one way to go downtown. There is absolutely nothing to do around, except if you are there on business. The area is industrial, and all you see are huge trade ships, trains with various wagons and stuff like that. You cannot even get close to the port since it's all locked around.
Rooms are extremely small, it's impossible to move around for 2 people with 2 luggages. We were lucky though since the reception upgraded us to the suite. The suite is twice as large as a standard room, but still does not fall under a definition of a "suite". Breakfast was good, but other food options are very poor, there is nothing to eat after 9-10 pm except for some cold sandwiches from the reception shop. There are flies all over the food, which is unacceptable.
Everything in the hotel is for extra charge. They call is a SPA hotel but offer no discounts or offers for those who actually pay for the room to stay in the hotel. They do not offer the option of showing you around the spa since it is disturbing to other people. How can you decide then if you wanna try the spa or not??
The hotel is marked as 3 stars on websites, but the actual hotel considers itself as 4 stars. Hard to believe!!! They don't even offer shampoo/shower gel/body lotion, all they offer is an all-body shower gel. The bed is very comfortable though.
The lobby is large and nicely decorated, but overall the place is quite depressing. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone, there are much more options in downtown Goteborg.
