That it was close to Scandinavium arena The staff wasn't always friendly. There was a worlds championships figure skating taking place at the same period of time, and we - the guests - were treated as annoying yet inevitable add on. We couldn't use elevators on certain days in the lobby, we had to eat in a different restaurant (while hotel information didn't mention it), we were asked 'where is your pass?' , 'where are you going?' t
very poor service at breakfast room, tables were not cleaned so it was hard to find clean, ready to use table
Close to town / Park. The hotel is modern. Can be overcrowded - breakfast on weekends / lifts
The Restaurant and Bar, Heaven 23 was exactly that Heaven
The nice view from the fourteenth floor and the very nice breakfast. The very bad shape of the room. The bathroom was falling into pieces. The sink wasn't working and the shower was broken also.
Everything was OK.
I stayed in the Sky Executive Room with my daughter. The view was fantastic. N/A
Nice hotel, with a very nice view if you take the sky rooms. People should smile more :-)
I found the staff for the most part friendly. Price was good. Location is ok. Housekeeping did a poor job cleaning the room. Breakfast was just okay compared to other hotels in the city
Location was great, just off the highway. The room was clean and comfortable. Very helpful and friendly staff.
One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in by a mile. Really superb service, location and value for money. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Very good food in the restaurant Car park was full even though it says on the internet it is not necessary to reserve
Nicely located in the centre of the city. Also near the highway, good starting point for visits in the area. Free internet stopped working after 1.5 days (booked 3). The lobby could not have this fixed. Only valet parking available, but no major issue because the service was quick.
It was right across from the train station, which in Goteborg is in a very nice part of town. Also, they have a very nice buffet breakfast. They are affiliated with a very nice gym next door. I would have preferred that admission to the gym be included in the price of the room. Instead, there was a nominal fee.
Clean,friendly staff, great breakfast, good location
Very comfortable hotel... Excellent location and friendly staff
Centrally located, comfortable, quiet. Great water pressure in the shower ! The breakfast was a bit cold.
Comfort of room
Excellent service, no hidden fees. Everything we asked was arranged. Rooms are pretty large, Atrium area offers restaurant and bar and location is in the middle of the city. We strongly recommend this hotel to everyone.
Perfect location for those who are coming from the train station (just in front of it). Gorgeous breakfast, helpful staff. The extra bed in the family room.... uncomfortable and really noisy!!!
The hotel location. The bekfast staff were nice and simpathetic. Good breakfast Reception staff were grumpy. Upon my arrival to the hotel I had to request everything I had previously write upon my reservation. We got a room with twin beds despite having specificaly request a double bed. Most of the hotel rooms have windows to the interior of the hotel, you will not really see the sun.
The staffs are very nice and served very well. The buffet breakfast is good and lots of variety of food.
Very good quality hotel and with an excellent location.
Friendly staff made a big difference Television options very poor.
The room was nice and spacious. The breakfast was not good - plain and too many people.
Stayed at this hotel in Aug 2009 As many people have said before me this hotel although is above a Train Station it is extremly quiet. Breakfast was ample with lots of choice. Room service for only 500 SEK is well worth it for a lovely breakfast in bed treat. Lots to see and do here.
Good service, quiet room, cfortable bed.
Nice rooms, good brakfast The location, a hotell inside a shopping sentre, with the smell of fastfood all over the reseption is not ideal for me.
Very quiet room despite the hotel's location. Nice design of the building
Nice people. central There was no window to the outside of the hotel. it would have been more nice to see the beautiful view of Gothenburg, and get some nice fresh air. but this is such a great hotel anyway, so it is not big deal. we might have gotten a "better" room if we waited till 3 pm. but we got there at 1 pm, and we were asked to get another room instead if we did not want to wait until 3 pm. that is polite :)
I had to catch an early morning bus. A to go breakfast bag was ready for me at 4 a.m. in the morning and I was really impressed.
excellent hotel breakfast wasw superb choice bar prices very pricey
The location was good as was the breakfast buffet. The rooms were small, cheaply furnished, no air conditioning, noisy, no facilities and overpriced.
I enjoyed the location of the hotel and the friendly staff. Also, the shower was amazing! I would have liked more variety at the breakfast bar: more fruit, for example
Hotel location Rooms are very-very small, advertised freeb Wi-Fi not so ease to receive, after two days of use, hotel asks money for use.
The breakfast was "so and so"
Location was great. Breakfast wa included. In triple seated room the the third bed was not comfortable.
Good location. Choice of food at breakfast. Free passes to Liseberg Park. Appearance of large green Liseberg rabbit entertained my daughter every morning. Dining room is chaotic. Needs floor management. Rooms are quite very warm at night.
Good location. Friendly staff. Good breakfast buffet.
The location was good and the restaurant was excellent. The fitness room was very small. It would have also been nice if breakfast were available at 6:00 rather than 6:30.
Location was very convenient to seeing the city. no
Relax and clean and central of the city
The location was close for us to walk everywhere. There was construction going on right outside our window. Our room was on the train side of the hotel which was noisy during the night.
It was very comfortable and close to Göteborg station. The breakfast was very good. The cleaning staff were kind of 'in your face'. Would recommend eating breakfast as early as possible. The eating area is limitted. The rooms on the railway side are a bit noisy.
location, size of room , quality , friendly staff, excellent bfast
Nice rooms, Good breakfast. Hard to find on foot.
The staff was nice and welcoming. I loved the breakfast buffét. Mold in the shower...
Very close to rail station and city sights Not enough staff at reception at check out time
I liked the pleasant staff who were very helpful and the very comfortable beds. I didn't like the location which seemed dodgy initially as it looked like an alley, although the hotel was generally right in the middle of the city. A heated hangar in the bathroom would have been nice to have.
Free tea and coffee to all guests at all times of the day and good wifi connection. The radiator in my room was partially functioning so it was a little cold.
Very very nice staff, huge and delicius breakfast
Breakfast is amazing The location is busy and parking is a bit far from the hotel.
Lots to like - charming historic building with hip modern addition. Kind staff. Great food. Easy train access- could not have been closer to train station. Clean and modern room. There was nothing not to like- this hotel met our needs perfectly.
close to town overpriced and basic
It is in the hart of Göteborg. It is quiet and homey. The staff is pleasant and the rooms are good and clean.
Very clean and great location A bit expensive
I really didn't like this hoitel at all. The receptionist was very unfriendly. We payd a lot for one night and yet reseived rooms that were not renovated (old, very samll rooms at the loft of the building, you couldn't even lock the rooms inside!!) I am definetely very disappointed, I wonder how booking.com has this hotel in their web site! I didn't like anything in this hotel and I will never-ever recommend it to anyone!
Atmosphere is very business-like and the staff are courteous and nice. The hotel in itself is a very nice experience. However, what i did not like most is my stay is that i was asked by the reception why i have such a big luggage when i was only staying for one night. I took offense in that coz Göteborg was the first leg of my five city trip around Western and Southern Sweden to promote the company i worked in.
the room was very nice, bathroom slightly less nice but ok a bump on the floor in the corridor leading to our room that if you don´t know it could cause a fall!
Quiet, central, good wifi, great lounge area. The room itself was inhumanly cold and stuffy
Central in the city Parking facilities OK, but not easy to find
Excellent location, helpful staff and a first-class breakfast. The room, however, was rather small and dark with furniture from the eighties ...
It's very central to any where in the city No
Everything, Staff helpful and kind, is the best option in Gothenburg.
cleanliness, well organised, large rooms and helpfull staff.
My friend and I spent a weekend at Gothenburg for sightseeing purposes. We shared a twin room at the Clarion and was very impressed by the room as well as the hospitality offerred by the hotel. Room was big and clean (it has a small lounge and a kitchen) and the breakfast was great. The hotel also serves coffee/tea and cakes during the afternoon without additional charges.
it does what it says on the tin
Excellent for our family - the dinner buffet was better than in some other Clarion Hotels! Clean, nice, good location. Even a small play area for kids would be very useful..
the staff members are all very nice and approachable
breakfast and evening meal no temperature regulation and noice from the freezer
Everything ran smoothly throughout the course of my stay and the staff were very friendly and welcoming at all times. My room was bright, modern and comfortable - I really appreciated having an iron too!
very clean close to the center of the city and its convention center very narrow small rooms
Nothing. The room was barely bigger then a closet. Was dirty and appeared to be not suitable for a stay. Everything. It had a double bed that barely got in the room.
i thought the staff were welcoming and the breakfast was excellent. not at all.
Very friendly and helpful staff Bar and restaurant closed on sundays
Friendly and helpful hotel staff. Free internet. Good breakfast. Located near Liseberg and city area. Not very easy to locate public transport from the central station if this is your first trip to Gothenburg. We received very vague instructions from the central station staff on the location of the tram stop (they couldn't even tell us it was situated along Ostra Hamingatan) which is not very near the central station. It took us quite some time to locate the tram stop where we took tram no. 6 which takes us directly to the hotel (stop at Scandinavium).
Very deceiving hotel, the prices is high regarding the hotel itself and its amenities
Absolutely blown away, best hotel of our trip, apartment size room on the 11th floor, seemed brand new, beautiful furniture and decor with giant walk bathroom and Huge glass wall window.. amazing. ITA Incredibile, megliore albergo del nostro vacanze, come un apartamento su 11th piano, tutto nuovo, bellisima furnitura e decor con grandissimi bagno and 3 grande panelli di vetri a vedere la citta.. bellisimo
The breakfast buffé was really nice and we had a lovely view from the room.
The hotel is central to the city, has a good restaurant and breakfast area and was very comfotable. Arriving late at night, there was no facility to have a meal, a local nearby hotel did have a late meal service, it would have been nice to had even a sandwich or roll.
Check in staff were very helpful with directions and other information needed for my short stay
The reception was first class. Breakfast was good. Disappointing that the bar was closed for the summer, apparently! Just that the bar was shut - we (my colleagues and I) had hoped to use it as a rendezvous
The beds in this hotel were horrible. I wount come back until you have invested in new ones.
Old comfortable hotel as close the central as it gets. Clean comfortable rooms. Nice breakfast. Asked for help to get a Rental car. The answer was ,,Unpossible" Have never got that answer at any hotel!!
Location was perfect--across from Central Station (train). The hotel is historic and the decor was in keeping with the period. The details in public areas were magnificent and the furniture in the rooms was also in keeping with the period, even for basic rooms. Having an elevator was also very nice.
i thought the hotel was a bit shabby and dated ,location is fine and staff very helpful breakfast also poor
the room was very comfortable and the breakfast was very good the floor was dusty
We did like the location of the hotell, were we werw near the city center and. Did also like the personal wich we met for theire curtesy and theire willing to help. But there was some angles in staying at Gårda too. The room we got was a smal one, but the design of the interior did not fit to the sise. It was almost impossible to look at the TV unless laying in bed. But a little moove of furniture and mooving the TV above the bed head, or at least some pillows too make it easier too look at TV from the bed.
The hotel included a breakfast buffet, which was good as it meant we didn't have to hunt for a place to have breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location of the hotel was very close to the city centre. The room was a reasonable size to move around and, it was clean and tidy. Even though it was near a main road, it was very quiet and you can get a good night's sleep.
Nous sommes restés 5 nuits dans cet hôtel. Les chambres sont agréables et propres. Hôtel situé à côté de l'autoroute mais bien insonorisé. 15 min en marchant du centre ville. Matelas du lit un peu mou.
Complimentary breakfast was great! Very,very clean hotel and great location. Only challenge is parking, garage is so small can't accommodate 3rd of guests. Front desk is very friendly and efficient.
very helpful stuff, excellent breakfast, good cooking and cleanness
Friendly and helpful staff, efficient room cleaning service, good breakfast and good timing of breakfast, close to tram route. A little noisy with window open, from the traffic on the road.
Very helpful staff. Happy to help. Comfortable, stylish room. Excellent breakfast with long breakfast time period. I would have liked a hot drink late in the evening on a couple of occasions after the bar closed. Perhaps a vending machine?? Otherwise most enjoyable and I felt well looked after- thanks!
Near from the tram station. Good breakfast. Clean room.
It's a nice hotel if you wanna stay in Gothenburg for a weekend and for a reasonable price! If you see only the building it's not a really beautiful hotel. It looks a bit lonely and not very inviting. Nevertheless, inside it's really OK!
The friendly staff
Central location, clean, helpful staff who all spoke superb english. Good breakfast choice. Ensure you eat breakfast before 0800 as then the whole world arrives to eat and it becomes a total crush.
Very dirty room. Carpet everywhere in the hotel not clean. Very nozy! Smells very bad. Really disappointed.
The breakfast The view from the room, the room design was not modern
Good location. Nice breakfast. Some rooms have windows to atrium. Good choice as for buisnes as for leisure.
Doesn't qualify for a 4-star hotel. Furniture old.
Great bathroom, nice rooms.
The room was ok. The breakfast. Too crowded!!! Thought about finding somewhere else to eat.
Location, value for money. Internet and breakfast included in room rate.
The bathroom need to be updated.
Lovely clean rooms and very friendly staff
Lovely atmosphere, beautiful building/interior design, good location, wonderful staff Quite small room, quite basic
The hotel staff were charming, courteous and helpful. The hotel itself is a little jewel of eccentric architecture. We were delighted to have discovered it, and would certainly stay there again. The coffee! But coffee is a problem in Nordic countries generally.
Excellent location; friendly and helpful staff; nice room/
We left a bag on the airport bus and the hotel staff not only contacted them for us but went to collect the bag. They couldn't have been more helpful. Asside from this the hotel is beautiful, the rooms comfortable and the breakfast excellent.
Friendly staff. Free tea and cake in the lobby!
Nice and big room, friendly staff. An overall nice hotel
A lovely hotel looking very grand and rich. Classy. Great breakfastbuffet. Right in de centre of the city. Lovely staff with good service.It felt like a treat to be there.
staying in a lovely old hotel with so much history
Added value from the fact that the hotel is Gothenburg's oldest. "Attacking" front doors!
Hotel staff very friendly. Ideally situated beside a shopping centre with accesss to plenty of restaurants. Extremely handy for bus, tram and train connections a few minutes away.
Clean basic room, good location, ok breakfast, nothing out of the ordinary. Good for a business trip.
swimming pool, the staff, free wi-fi breakfast too nordic, no jam for example...
We were placed in a room for smokers without no indikation when we booked at internet
recent new modern design - very good breakfast -central no tea coffee making facilities not proper twin beds
The location and the comfort of the hotel. I found that the staff was not very friendly. Particurlarly at the bar.
-The employees were very friendly, - the internet was free, - the location of the hotel was very convinient -you have to pay for a coffee, - the room was a little but small
I was surprised at the simplicity of the room and missed it after I got home. Loved the hardwood floors. the breakfast was great..very good food and very clean. Service was excellant, too. everyone most helpful.
Staff in reception on arrival were very welcoming and friendly. Staff in the bar were also very friendly and efficient. 1. Staff were very brusque when we asked for 3 extra hours to stay in the room after checkout time. Answer was a very definite no. 2. The room was too small for 2 people.
The location is superb - adjacent to large shopping mall, close to many trams, and across the street from the central train station. Huge breakfast buffet and free wi-fi are both greatly appreciated. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
good breakfast the internet connection in room is very poor and unstable; there is no aircon in the room--leaving the window opened throughout the day can be very noisy sometimes. During my two nights it were very noisy outside until midnight.
Beautiful hotel, rooms small but functional and comfortable. Love the buffet breakfast, breakfast eating area, and sitting / relaxation area. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. An excellent experience and I would highly recommend this hotel. Proximity to trams, buses, restaurants, etc., is terrific!
In general when staying in Swedish hotel I find that they are old style and "tired" - whilst I am not looking for an ultra modern facility somewhere in between would be better for me. I also thought that the breakfast was basic and not so extensive.
The small sitting room / study and the breakfast
Nice spot at seaside, nice beds, superb breakfast.
The ship is sltii lfoating nicely on the water even it if it only the water taht is floating by!! The resturant was closed in the evening - still it was off season.
Close to the city centre. Special admosphere on the boot
Location in water close to city centre. Commercial 1908 sailing vessel with steel hull and 4 masts tastefully converted into comfortable boutique hotel and moored next to opera, maritime museum and large shopping mall. Very stilish, very practical, cozy and nice change from anonymous business hotels (no comparison to the other floating hotel nearby). Free WiFi. No coffee/tea facility, restaurant/bar closed on Monday night, 24h parking in public garage of shopping mall some few 100m away.
The "nautical" ambiance
A really unique hotel in an excellent location. Staff and facilities were great. Fantastic breakfast!!!!
The quietness and calm atmosphere Pretty slim dinner menu at the restaurant. We left and went to a nearby fish restaurant..
The staff were very helpful to move me from the top floor where my room was subjected to the noise from cleaning of the top deck(bar/restaurant) nightly between 01.00-03.00. However, I would recommend that if you book the hotel insist on the bottom floor(by telephone reservation only not via the internet!). All rooms on the top floor, 2 of 2, (in other words half of the hotel) should be avoided as they all are subjected to the cleaning/dragging noises each night between 01.00-03.00(after the bar/restaurant closes). I am not an "oldie" but couldnt believe that this could occur in a 4 star rated hotel...The rooms on the first floor(our second night we moved) were definately 4 star quality, but the second floor rooms(first night) had no climate control and was not more than a motel standard, which was not what I was expecting for 1250 SEK per night. The breakfast was note of 4 star quality either. I have stayed in many business hotels in Göteborg and this was the worst of the them. We decided to stay there because the lounge on the deck over looking the water was the romantic "hook", unfortunately it was packed by 3pm and most everyone ended up standing around, rather than sitting and enjoying the sun overlooking the water.
A beautiful boat and a real adventure on board lovely fixtures and fittings and excellent breakfast The restaurant didnt serve hot food and a real shame as the sun in the evening would have beenn so nice to eat out on the deck side
I liked to be in the middle of the forest, to open my window and to hear the trees. In the morning, a deer came and ate his breakfast while I ate mine. The breakfast buffet was a really unique and enjoyable experience - especially on day 2 when I was not nervous for my competition, and I really appreciated that Patrick made us delicious and fresh croissants in the morning.
quiet, slept well, fresh clean air Breakfast a little limited and cramped but acceptable. Once the proposed dining room is ready this should make a big difference.
Very comfortable and big beds. Nice staff. The hens on the yard in the morning was nice as well. When we arrived back from a long day out they had lit a fire in the tile so it was nice and warm. Excellent breakfast. Very cheap parking nearby. The shower was a bit weak but it was supposed to be ecological all over in the hotel so I guess that is acceptabel. There were only one toilett/shower to share for three rooms wich could be a problem if you`re in a hurry in the morning.
I loved that this hotel is in the middle of a forest. It was so quiet and tranquil. The breakfast was great, good choice. The hotel was also renovated to a very high standard. Very good stay.
