The best part of Hotel Poseidon is the wonderful and caring staff. They were there to assist me in any way possible, including a rough 4am checkout and taxi for the airport; making sure I had a sandwich to take, and answering my question about appropriate tipping for taxis. The hardest part about room 505 for me was that it...

... Stay here! This hotel is family owned and you can feel it. Taking hospitality serious, the welcome is warm and very friendly. This impression occurs already upon entering the building and continued throughout our stay. Everyone friendly and helpful. The building is in the new part of Gothenburg, built around 1900, carefully renovated, blending old and new (where particularly...

Our room at the 6th floor were very quiet, pretty spacious and had comfortable beds. The service is good and you get free coffe in the lobby. The free WiFi is working well. There is only one elevator and it is not fast, so if you have trouble with the stairs you will have to spend some time waiting. Breakfast...

I had to check out at 5:30 am for going to the airport. So i gave up breakfast at the restaurant of the Poseidon hotel. But they already prepared sandwich and hot coffee at the lobby for free of those visitors like me. I was simply impressed with their service and hospitality.

What a pleasant residence for a vacation weekend! This was my favorite hotel out of 5 I stayed in Scandinavia. From the moment I arrived they were very helpful on tourism, transit, and local amenities. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a view of the open backyard patio. The breakfast was broad and attractive downstairs. I was able...

Location is great, very close to the centre of Gothenburg, and very reasonable room rate considering this. Also, the breakfast was really delicious (extensive buffet, nice coffee, hot and cold etc) The rooms however were small and dated, the beds comfortable enough but the decor felt dated (also the hotel smelt a little musty). It was also quite loud in...
