Reviewed 27 June 2011

I spent 7 nights at Scandic Opalen Hotel and I didn't like it at all.The room was very small, too small for two people, only one closet, no mini bar and safe, bathroom for one person and very cold in the room. Not very clean and too expensive. More 2 stars than 4 stars.

The hotel is situated near “Mässan” (The Göteborg’s Exposition Hall) and Ullevi, where you can watch football and other sport events. If you have luggage and don’t have a car, you have to take tram or taxi to reach the hotel.

The hotel belongs to the Scandic chain and all hotels in this chain offer more or less the same for the money. By my point of view, I think hotel Opalen it’s a little bit overpriced regarding to what you get. The rooms are absolutely “OK” but not more than that. So there are better hotels in Göteborg than this hotel. So I would like to rate it 3½ but it's not possible here. As it is more a four star than three star I rate it "4"

Very nice hotel in center of the town. Its near to the ice hockey stadium Scandanavium. The theme park of Gothenburg is also close to it. The main street, Avnenyn is three blocks away. As for hotel, the staff is very friendly with smiling face. Facilities are excellent. Rooms are clean. Rooms had coffee machines, iron board and table, wifi. Rates are decent. Breakfast was included in room rent. Breakfast was good but there was not much variety. Every day the same stuff. So u get bored after 3 or 4 th day. But its was not bad. Bus stop and tram stop are nearby. Overall Excellent hotel to stay. I will recommend to anyone travelling to Gotheburg as tourist or business.

We stayed for the weekend in Jan. Hotel is in a really good location for exploring the city. We had a family room and a double room. The double was tiny but we asked to change it and were given another family room without any problems. (For the small additional cost I would recommend booking the bigger room). Hotel was very nice, and clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great - probably the best hotel breakfast buffet we have had in any Swedish hotel.
