Reviewed 31 July 2017

We have stayed at this hotell many times. It has a very nice location, close to Liseberg, the city, shopping, Paddan etc. The rooms are ok, we ordered very late, the day before we came, so we got very small rooms, because that were all they had left, but it was ok. The cleaning was not so good, hair in the shower, dust on the floor and missing towels. But the reception staff were nice. Their breakfast is also good, but the hotell was full, 900 guests they said, so the restaurant was full all morning. All the other times we have stayed here a couple of days in the summer, it has never been so full of children as it was now. It looked like the hotell now has a special childfriendly program and prices, so it was a little fussy and noisy stay for us, especially at breakfast, in the restaurant and in the reception. But, anyway, we like this hotell, and maybe we will come back.

Room Tip: Don't choose the smallest rooms.

Very glad to hear that you like our hotel.
If you stay with us during a busy period, with families and children, ask the reception for more quiet hours in the breakfast. We know how important the breakfast is and always do our best to give you a pleasant experience

Kind Regards
Jenny Bladh, Hotel Manager

Freddie Wadlings Kabinett at Göteborgs Stadsmuseum - just se it! Liseberg is a must and all the restaurants are worth visiting. Take a walk by "the forgotten harbour" and a trip with Paddan. Just sit and look at people having a soft icecream. Love it!
