If you don't require atmosphere the Scandic Ruby might be a practical alternative. Be sure to reserve a room facing the street; the ones facing inside can bring on any latent claustrophobia you may have. The neighborhood is interesting, and major cultural institutions -- art museum, theaters, concert hall, are a ten-minute walk way. The staff is helpful when asked,...

We arrived in the midst of a massive IT failure during which it was hard for the staff to check people in. The queue was long and not very happy. I guess as a result of the IT failure, the TV was out as well. In addition, the restaurant and bar surprised both the guests and the staff by closing...

Stayed one night for a business trip. The hotel is located next to Gothenburg's main street with lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. The rooms are quite small but well thought through and comfy. Smart things here and there such as a plug to connect your computer to the TV. Average breakfast, the big "thing" is their rooftop lounge style...

Scandic Rubinen has a great location right on the No 1 Esplanade "Avenyn" in Gothenburg. When we visited the hotel it was still under renovation, which meant that some parts of the hotel were closed off, e.g. the sauna area and the sky bar were not yet open. Probably it will be very nice when everything is ready (check if...

Our room (family) was newly renovated, fresh and clean. Breakfast was good as always in Scandic hotels. This hotel is smokefree, and thats ok, but what I do not understand is why the streetbar terrace is smokefree??? Very disappointing! So all smokers: Go and buy your drink at another bar where you are allowed to have a cigarette as well!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Scandic Rubinen is located on Avenyn in central Gothenburg, a stone's throw from the famous bronze sculpture of Poseidon at Gotaplatsen and Kungsportsplatsen. Scandic Rubinen's central location in Gothenburg makes the hotel an ideal place for those who want to be close to Gothenburg's culture, shopping and city life. From our hotel you're also within a walking distance from many of Gothenburg's most popular attractions such as Liseberg amusement park, Universeum Science Centre and the Rohsska Museum. After expansion and renovation in spring 2014, Rubinen has a new design by DOOS architects. The interior has an urban feel and a homely elegance with a mix of colours, shape and details. Facility Our hotel is a natural meeting place in Gothenburg and we offer something to suit all tastes. Ruby Bar is Scandic Rubinen's very own living room and is open day and night. Both hotel guests and Gothenburg locals dine here, and our bar terrace is a great place to sit and watch the city entertainment. Our very own Roof Top bar is located on the 7th floor, with views over the rooftops of Gothenburg and fashionable Avenyn. When you stay with us, you can keep up your workouts in our gym or unwind in our relaxation suite with sauna. Our completely new conference and events floor offers facilities for 2-180 people, and events can be customised for up to 300 people all on one floor.
