Reviewed 11 September 2011

Great location when you arrive by car, the city center really is just around the corner. Nice pool. Rooms and breakfast good as is service at reception. Although the personel at the breakfast was definitely friendly and helpful, they did not rush to clean. The buffet however was fully stacked till the end.

I arranged a coach tour to Gothenberg and we stayed at the Opalen. Rooms small and how can you let out a double room with only one single duvet on the bed ? The other duvet was in a cupboard on top of the wardrobe. Breakfast buffet was very good--- but the evening buffet was poor. The dining room was dark, cold and uninviting and the food wasn't much better. Evening waiters were invisible - good thing it was a buffet !!!

We had a one week stay and rooms quite comfortable and staff were terrific. They have a great breakfast buffet which was always busy. We felt the rooms needed more attention to their cleaning (marks left on the shower wall tiles, dust balls) and there were several items that were neglected such as broken lampshades, loose baseboards, so it needs some maintenance attention. Overall we enjoyed our stay and it was good value and comfortable.

Well located hotel in the beautiful city of Gotemburg. Definitly very poor for a 4 star hotel. Small rooms, needing a renovation. No fridge in the room and a reception that gave us wrong information more than once. We asked for a good fish restaurant and were advised to visit one in the center of the city. Eventhough I asked if it would be better to reserve a table, the reception said no. The only problem was that the restaurant that he sugggeted is closed for the last 3 months.....

We booked our soccer team and supporters into the Opalen from July 16th to the 23rd during the Gothia cup torunmanet and had a very enjoyable stay.

Overall the hotel is very well run with friendly and helpful staff. Starting with the initial registration of aproximately 20 rooms through to booking taxis and getting early monring meals before going to the airport, the staff was very patient and understanding.

We enjoyed the daily breakfast at the hotel. A wide selection of cold and hot choices was well recieved by all even though the same menu was served each day. In a city where the cost of eating out is very high it helped to start the day with a complimentary meal.

The hotel is very well situtated in the city with close proximity to the tram station and walking distacne to the downtown area and major attractions.Free internet, great room service and overall good tidness of the hotel also made this a great place for an extended stay.

Room Tip: The rooms on floors 9 and above are newer as it appears the hotel was added on to in the near past.
