All the former glory has gone. The location is perfect, the hotel is not. The hotel is suffering from the lack of a proper make over. During this summer we have stayed in several Radisson blue hotels, all very chic, clean and well kept. Take the Rb Riverside hotel in Gothenburg as an example We received a business room, should...

Really nice location and breakfasts. Helpful staff on reception. Overall though hotel was dated and in need of a refit. Bathroom was last renovated fully in the 70s. Room was stuck in the 90s. A little lacklustre.

Excellent location for us for our journey, close to the ferry from Denmark. The staff were very helpful on check in. The room was clean and with a good view of the town from a business class room on the 10th floor. Lots of hot water and the toiletries good. Kettle and coffee and tea facilities in the room.

The room we got was in a very bad shape but at a very high price. They claim that some rooms are renovated, but that does not help visitors getting the old rooms! Very old fashion bathroom, dirty, the double bed squeezed against the wall on one side. A terrible noise in the roof in the hallway outside the room....
