Final Stay of our European Getaway

Reception staff, specifically Carl, were great, very friendly and accommodating. When we first arrived in our room we saw that it was very small and we had quite a bit of luggage. We had not been in the room but a minute when Carl called on the phone, mentioned that he had noticed all our luggage and upgraded us to a larger room at no extra charge. Not only was the room larger but the view was fantastic. A very comfortable room and let's not forget the shower. Excellent!. Carl also noted that we were leaving the next morning before breakfast would be served and arranged for some sandwiches and snacks that we could take to the airport. Great final night in Sweden!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Be prepared to have a credit/debit card with a PIN. Most credit cards could not be used in our travel to Sweden and Denmark. Fortunately, we did have a debit card that was accepted. We were also surprised that Sweden and more so Denmark did not take Euros.

schmutzige Zimmer

Die Lage vom Hotel war gut. Das Zimmer war in einem schmutzigen Zustand, vorallem das Bad. Am Boden hatte es noch Haare und das WC wurde auch nicht gespühlt und gereinigt. Uns hat man der Reception sofort ein neues Zimmer zugeteilt, aber auch dies war noch schmutzig. Im dritten Anlauf erhielten wir ein sauberes Zimmer. Das Morgenessen war sehr gut und es hatte eine grosse Auswahl an warmen sowie kalten Speisen. Der Spa Bereich war sauber.

Elendige greier

Helt elendig opplegg. Vi hadde forhåndsbetalt for et rom for 3 netter. Da vi kom fikk vi nøkkel til et rom hvor det lå saker og ting overalt. Rommet var ikke utsjekket. Vi fikk bytte rom. Heller ikke dette var istandgjort. Da det skjedde en 3 gang ble jeg mildt sagt forbannet. Hadde vi ikke forhåndsbetalt ville jeg aldri sjekket inn der. Vi fikk en liten hilsen opp på rommet, altså det 4 rommet vi fikk tildelt. 3 miniposer med potetgull og en flaske vin på 1,8 DESILITER, som skulle være til 2 voksne personer.

Hotelli hyvällä paikalla

Hyvä sijainti, siisti ja rauhallinen. Erityisesti aamiainen oli tämän tason hotelliin lähes loistelias. Huonoa oli huoneen todella tunkkainen ilma. Ilmastointi ei toiminut toivotulla tavalla. Siksi lämpötila nousi lähelle 30 astettta. Nukkumisesta ei tahtonut tulla mitään.

Bra läge - sämre skick

Bra läge på hotellet, nära gångavstånd till Liseberg, Avenyn och Ullevi samt Trädgårdsföreningen som var vår destination på trippen. Hotellkorridorerna såg slitna ut, smutsig textilmatta på golven. Rummet var helt okej, badrummet kändes också slitet men fullt funktionellt förutom ett löjligt svagt vattentryck i duschen. Sköna sängar. Frukosten är som vanligt på Scandic - av varierande kvalitet. Frukosten på Opalen tillhör tyvärr inte den bättre med tråkigt bröd, sladdrigt bacon och prinskorv med underlig bismak. Juicen som erbjöds behöver en skylt om att den kräver spädning för att smaka bra - det som kom ur automaten var tjockflytande koncentrat. Personalen var trevlig men långsam. Barpersonalen var mycket trevliga och glada. Scandic Opalen var ett billigt alternativ med riktigt bra läge för oss som skulle sova en natt. Trots ovanstående kan jag rekommendera Opalen till den som inte har alltför höga krav på bekvämlighet och fräschör.

Texas Longhorn längs Södra Vägen en bit från Scandic Opalen serverade den bästa ryggbiff jag ätit på flera år, och personalen var mycket trevlig.
