“Overbooked and overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

Arrived after a long drive from Jonkoping only to be told that as the hotel was inundated with teenagers attending the Gothia Cup our room was not ready despite being booked well in advance. Unbelievably the staff at check in suggested we go shopping until our room was ready. To cut a long story short we finally got in to our room at 9PM after 4 attempts at check in only to find it had no outside windows and overlooked the very noisy atrium area. You could not open a window for air it was that noisy. After months of complaining the hotel finally gave us a voucher for a free night at any Clarion hotel, but in Scandinavia only. I would have preferred a refund for the night in question (we were there 3 nights). The hotel was totally overstretched from front desk to housekeeping because they had overbooked rooms for the Gothia Cup and woe betide anyone who was not there for that.

Room Tip: Make sure you do not overlook the interior atrium area, you will have no outside window.

This feels more like an apartment hotel than a regular hotel, with rooms accessed via a public/office stairwell. The rooms can be extremely large (mine had a bedroom, a large lounge, kitchen, bathroom, and a guest bedroom!).

The best things though are the extras. A nice free buffet in the evening, free breakfast in the morning, and free internet access.

Modern, neat & clean hotel. Location is great, .. right beside the train station. Big rooms with leather sofas, working table and wide screen TV. The decor was very scandinavian and modern. Great value for money in total.

This hotel is very close to the trainstation and only a few steps from "Nordstan", a big shoppingcentre in Gothenburg. You can easily walk, a few minutes, to the tram, which takes you, almost, all over Gothenburg. It´s a ticketboth, outside of the trainstation, at Drottningtorget, where you can buy ticket for busses, trams, boats.
We had a small flat with kitchen, but we didnt use it. But if you stay for a few days, it most be comfortably, to sometimes make your own lunch or dinner.
But when we stayed there we had free dinner in the evening, the first evening taco buffet and the second chicken buffet. Good to know if you book room in this hotel - you save dinnermoney!
The room was OK and clean. The staff was very helpful, when asking for different things. Good and nutrient breakfast, bacon, scrambled eggs, sausage, yoghurt, müsli etc.

I give this hotel a five points in the rankings, I rarely ranking this high but considering what you get for this price, the Clarion Collection Odin Hotell gives you the absolute best value for money and you get to stay at a very nice hotel.
Gothenburg might have better hotels, but then they you also have to pay a lot more money. Find yourself in a very nice hotel for a good price!

Located between the "Odinsplatsen" and and "Drottningtorget" are you at very center of Gothenburg. "Drottningtorget" (Queens Sqare in english) is the city's hub for trams and from here you can easily take you anywhere you want in Gothenburg.
"Drottningtorget" is right next to the city's railway station and major bus terminal. A few steps away is the city's most famous street "Kungsportsavenyn" (better known simply as the Avenue) and shopping in Scandinavia's largest Mall called "Nordstan"
Despite the fact that you live very centrally, this is a very quiet and safe neighborhood, perfect for families or if you want to sleep quietly at night but still be close to everything in town.

I have lived in many of Gothenburg hotels, and this is what I recommend to those visiting Gothenburg. Partly due to the location in the city and that its well signposted so you can easily find even if you are walking.

Of course playing quality of the hotel when I recommend this hotel. The rooms are surprisingly large (as an apartment) and very nice with high quality furnishings and beds where you're guaranteed good night's sleep.
We booked a double room and got his own kitchen with coffee maker and a stereo from Bang & Olufsen in the room! :)
Even the bathroom is large and very fresh.

The breakfast buffet is the best I have eaten in Sweden's second largest city and the dining room is very beautiful.

You'll find no better hotel in this price range in the city of Goteborg!
