Great location (close to train station, but not in a shabby street). Great service from the staff (made a point of introducing themselves, etc).

We arrive in Gothenburgh by train from Stockholm.The Hotel location could not be better if you arrive by train ,because it is only few steps away from train station.Easy walk even with lugagge.
The lady at the reception was lovely and gave us a warm welcome!She could not be more helpful giving restaurant recommendations,maps,etc,during our stay. The same friendliness on departure.
Beautiful "tower room" ( one double and one single room connected) , spacious and clean.
The only downside was the street noise during our two nights stay.It was some kind of summer festival in the city,so it was impossible to sleep in any of the two nights we spent there!The problem was not the music because we didn`t hear it,but the people voices in the street screaming all night were terrible ( we were on top floor!).Other than this the hotel was perfect.Tea and biscuits available for guests in the lobby,free internet and good breakfast.
Reasonable rates for Sweden!

Room Tip: on summer ask for a room at the back!

The oldest hotel in Gothenburg is 3 minutes from Central Station and Airport Bus terminal, 5 minutes from theatre,landing stages, 10 minutes from Concert Hall, Theatre, Art Gallery and Park. In other words absolutely prime position. I had single room overlooking courtyard, so quiet that I could have window open - pristine room, only rather small bed was something one could complain about. Superb breakfast, helpful friendly staff, free wi-fi, internet, free coffee, tea and cake all day, two small but pleasant lounges. Reasonable rates for Sweden.

Room Tip: Overlooking courtyard best

Stayed for 4 nights in a standard double room which was smallish, but well laid out and spotless. The reception staff were friendly and exceptionally helpful and the hotel itself is a two minute walk from the centre of things and a 5 min walk from the bus and railway stations. The buffet breakfast was great with plenty of choice and a healthy supply of fresh fruit.
Tips...If coming by bus from the airport, buy your tickets on-line or on the bus. You are charged more if you buy them in the airport....and get yourself a 'GO' city pass which gives entry to most attractions as well as allowing you ticketless bus, tram and ferry travel.
Recommendations: Paddan boat tour of the canal and waterfront...but watch your head!!
Central park...near to the Botanics (also recommended)...the one with the moose!!...and use your pass to visit the Liseberg funfair...if only to soak-up the Atmosphere (it's a ride!) and to appreciate that not all funfairs have to be like the British ones!!
Restaurants...Hello Monkey (Asian fusion) (5 mins from hotel) and sit outside even if it's chilly...the locals do and the restaurants supply blankets!..... and
A must for pizza-lovers...Cyrano on Princegaten....and
For veggies...the Solrosen in Haga (5 min on tram)...very reasonable even with a beer!

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in a deluxe suite. Room was very spacious with separate sitting area. Large modern bathroom with robes supplied. Hotel is located in quite side street only a few minutes from centre. Staff are very friendly. We picked this hotel because it appeared to have an individual charm about it - kind of an old fashioned traditional hotel but with modern feel to it if that makes sense. It is sometimes the little things that you remember most like a pleasant smile when you go in and out. There are no in room tea making facilities but hot drinks are always available from reception area - along with homemade cake that sits all too easy on the hips. Breakfast was typical fare but was still pleasant and relaxing - no pushy people here - you know the ones! Very relaxed feel to this hotel which definitely sets it apart from some of the more commercial chains. If you want box modern this hotel is not for you but if you want to try something a little bit more homely give it a try. The hotel asks you to leave your room key at reception when you go out which might not suit some but it is part of its traditional charm as well.
