This hotel was good for us, because we visit at Scandinavium hall and it was only 5 min.walk from/to there. We got a room at 10th floor and the view was nice to the "center" above the roofs.

This hotel is a nice hotel rather close to everything in the central Gothenburg.

This hotel has absolute nothing special to offer. The lobby was ok, the check in was ok, the elvator was ok, the room was ok (apart from the hairdryer that I burned my hand on as it got so warm after a few minutes), the bed was ok, and finally the breakfast was ok apart from that there was no...
