Location is excellent, as is refurbishment. Rubinen does everything that you would ask of it! Clean, tidy functional rooms, good wifi, excellent breakfasts and a splendid roof top bar, but what was remarkable was the level of service from the Front Office staff. It was exceptional. During my stay I had numerous questions and they were all fielded extremely well...

The hotel is located at the Kungsportavenue with a lot of nice restaurants around it. The recent renovations made it a very nice hotel. The rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The city centre is on walking distance from the hotel.

Had a stay here with another family in June. Hotel is central at Avenyn and close to Gothenburgs attractions. Hotel is good. Reception is new and fresh and staff is helpful (what you expect but nothing that surprises you). The room standard depends on where your room is. Our family friends got a new fresh room and we got one...

Loved this hotel. From the groovy foyer and downstairs bar to the rooftop sunset bar. The rooms were good and even had windows that open (what a treat). Wifi was strong and we had no complaints at all.. The staff as well were uber friendly and helpful.. Would definitely stay here again, and consider staying at other Scandic hotels.

If you don't require atmosphere the Scandic Ruby might be a practical alternative. Be sure to reserve a room facing the street; the ones facing inside can bring on any latent claustrophobia you may have. The neighborhood is interesting, and major cultural institutions -- art museum, theaters, concert hall, are a ten-minute walk way. The staff is helpful when asked,...

We arrived in the midst of a massive IT failure during which it was hard for the staff to check people in. The queue was long and not very happy. I guess as a result of the IT failure, the TV was out as well. In addition, the restaurant and bar surprised both the guests and the staff by closing...

Stayed one night for a business trip. The hotel is located next to Gothenburg's main street with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. The rooms are quite small but well thought through and comfy. Smart things here and there such as a plug to connect your computer to the TV. Average breakfast, the big "thing" is their rooftop lounge style...

Scandic Rubinen has a great location right on the No 1 Esplanade "Avenyn" in Gothenburg. When we visited the hotel it was still under renovation, which meant that some parts of the hotel were closed off, e.g. the sauna area and the sky bar were not yet open. Probably it will be very nice when everything is ready (check if...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Scandic Rubinen is located on Avenyn in central Gothenburg, a stone's throw from the famous bronze sculpture of Poseidon at Gotaplatsen and Kungsportsplatsen. Scandic Rubinen's central location in Gothenburg makes the hotel an ideal place for those who want to be close to Gothenburg's culture, shopping and city life. From our hotel you're also within a walking distance from many of Gothenburg's most popular attractions such as Liseberg amusement park, Universeum Science Centre and the Rohsska Museum. After expansion and renovation in spring 2014, Rubinen has a new design by DOOS architects. The interior has an urban feel and a homely elegance with a mix of colours, shape and details. Facility Our hotel is a natural meeting place in Gothenburg and we offer something to suit all tastes. Ruby Bar is Scandic Rubinen's very own living room and is open day and night. Both hotel guests and Gothenburg locals dine here, and our bar terrace is a great place to sit and watch the city entertainment. Our very own Roof Top bar is located on the 7th floor, with views over the rooftops of Gothenburg and fashionable Avenyn.
