                        Excellent location. Great breakfast buffet.

                        We were not impressed by the complete lack of smoking rooms in the hotel, but it was a very busy weekend for Gothenburg and we needed to book something pretty quick. The room was very small, especially with the 2nd bed folded out and there were no towels for a 2nd person. The small garbage bin was not emptied throughout our stay.

                        Close to Liseberg, that was our destination.

                        Very deceiving hotel, the prices is high regarding the hotel itself and its amenities

                        i thought the staff were welcoming and the breakfast was excellent.

                        not at all.

                        The breakfast buffé was really nice and we had a lovely view from the room.

                        Very dis-satisfied with the overall stay. Quality of room was bad, there was no space and service of staff was poor.

                        the towels were a little stinky ( not that they were not clean).

                        I liked the kids playroom. The food was great and the location was very good.

                        The cleaning of the room. It was a dirty at the floor when we got there, and the Same dirt was there when we left 4 days later.

                        The location is next to a cinema and close to the liseberg attraction park

                        We spent two nights here did not like the quality of the breakfast. The scambled eggs where not good (both days) the fruit was served straight from the deepfreeze, still frosted and had never been fresh it seemed. The elevators are only three, and around breakfast time waiting time was long for the elevators. Rooms are outdated.

                        The staff were without exception, helpful and very friendly in all areas, reception, restaurant and room cleaners.

                        The room was rather depressingly decorated. Dark and old fashioned.

                        Modern, good views (if one likes city views), silent

                        No restaurant on Sunday evening, some snacks for sale but no beer, no minibar, had to go out for evening meal, though originally I planned to have that at the hotel. At breakfast, while I was looking for more food, everything from my table had been taken away. This happens in many hotels these days, staff is too eager to clean the tables, they do not follow whether the guest is still there.

                        The breakfast,

                        Dirty dirty windows, tiny room, old bathroom, dingy shower fixtures. The art.
