I had to check out at 5:30 am for going to the airport. So i gave up breakfast at the restaurant of the Poseidon hotel. But they already prepared sandwich and hot coffee at the lobby for free of those visitors like me. I was simply impressed with their service and hospitality.

What a pleasant residence for a vacation weekend! This was my favorite hotel out of 5 I stayed in Scandinavia. From the moment I arrived they were very helpful on tourism, transit, and local amenities. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a view of the open backyard patio. The breakfast was broad and attractive downstairs. I was able... More

Location is great, very close to the centre of Gothenburg, and very reasonable room rate considering this. Also, the breakfast was really delicious (extensive buffet, nice coffee, hot and cold etc) The rooms however were small and dated, the beds comfortable enough but the decor felt dated (also the hotel smelt a little musty). It was also quite loud in... More

Fantastic hotel, great rooms. Very well situated for discovering Gothenburg. The staff were very helpful in helping us sort out our trips; discovering the trams, ferries and very good restaurants. The rooms are quiet, comfortable and a good size. The buffet breakfast is excellent. Would recommend this to anyone.

This is a very good value for money! The rooms are clean, quite big and quiet. Good bathroom (shower) and comfortable beds. Perfectly located within walking distance of pretty much everything and good connections to the whole city with tram. Helpful personal and friendly atmosphere. It's nothing luxurious but for the price you're paying it will be hard to find... More
