The hotel lication is very good, right next to tram stop 2 scandanavium. The room was rather old, a part of the mattress showed and you could see it's old. The bathroom had many holes drilled in the wall showing older appliances that don't exist anymore, but is clean and functional. The food was very good, i ordered a burger... More

Hotel with good location to the fair and the center of Gothenburg. In future I can stay in this hotel. I did it in 80 and so fare. Whats more? First of all the bed is okay. You have to upgrade the bathroom.

The reviews on here made me think this would be rather average - but actually quite liked it. The room was large. Two single beds pushed together and a long wondow seat which I much appreciated as I could enjoy my 11th floor view out over the City. Not personally a fan of wooden floored hotel rooms - create unwanted... More

This is a good hotel, you know what you can expect from Scandic. It's a good central location, close to almost everything. The rooms are a bit worn and so are the hotel as well. Great service, easy check-in, great view from the top rooms and as usual great breakfast

Checking was very efficient and friendly, my premium room on the 13th floor was on the small side but featured large windows with a great view. The bathroom has a roomy shower cabin, which means no clumsy tub to climb in and out of. There's a small office desk and a "sofa" to sit on. Drapes would let some light... More
