Stayed in their priciest room, and while it offered an absolutely breath taking view of the city from a nice room, it could be even better. The nice things first: the staff were friendly and helpful, the beds were great and the room was clean and tidy. It was very spacious and we enjoyed the overall comfort of the room....

Stayed here with my family, 4 persons, two adults and two kids 10 and 7. Got a small room at first but after complaining about hearing handy men at 7 in the morning they bumped us up to the 9th floor where they rooms with nice views start. Small room was a bit to small for us 4 so we...

Perfect location for central Gothenburg sport events/cinema or museums and Liseberg. Good standard hotel with stunning views of the city from the Standard rooms on the higher floors. Big breakfast with wide range. Could do with better organization though, gets very busy at weekends. Good spa section with jaccuzzi but not dimensioned for the size of the hotel. A tip...

Stayed at the hotel for one night with my family. At check-in I probably met the most unfriendly receptionist I've ever had met: not a smile or a "welcome". The room was OK but to hot - even when we tried to adjust the airconditioning. We arrived for breakfast about 30 minutts before closure, and the buffet was partly empty....

Very good location. Typical Scandic quality. A renovation is ongoing and can cause inconvenience. The price from the airport is around 420 SEK. The hotel is perfect for business and site seeing trips. The Internet speed is good.

From here you can easily walk to Avenyn and also Liseberg and Svenska Mässan etc.. the rooms are pretty much standard for the pricerange with one exception.. the view that you get from rooms located further up! It's really nice!!...

This hotel was good for us, because we visit at Scandinavium hall and it was only 5 min.walk from/to there. We got a room at 10th floor and the view was nice to the "center" above the roofs. Beds was good, bathroom was ok and in room price you get free wifi. The stuff spoke good english and was very...

This hotel is a nice hotel rather close to everything in the central Gothenburg. The rooms (at least the panorama) is very quiet and below the windows you have the traffic floating slowly and also a magnificent view over large part of Gothenburg. The reception is rather fast but could probably be better but you don't expect more from a...
