4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very nice, clean, well appointed hotel. Breakfast is fantastic. Dinner menu is limited, yet food and drinks are really well done. Nice and helpful staff. Very close to tram, and next to grocery store.

Comfortable and spacious room. Heating was unfortunately not working well during my stay, but staff offered to provide a portable heater. Although I didn't use it, the room also had a fully-equipped kitchen, which is handy if you're looking to stay for a few nights. Overall, a relatively comfortable stay, but not great value for money.

The hotel room was really spacious and equipped with kitchen accessories (incl. microwave and refrigerator). The bathroom was also spacious, clean and warm. There were lot of space to put your hygiene supplies. Breakfast was fairly typical. Nothing special to mention. There weren't gym in the hotel, but you could use the external gym in the same building at a discount. Basic ok hotel to stay. Probably at its best for families for longer stays.

Best hotel to stay in Goteborg. Coming here for 2 years now and havent found anything which can be complained about. The rooms are spacious. Breakfast is good. Most importantly, you feel at home when u interact with staff from reception and hotel. I have been regular visitor to Gothia Towers which is near by... that is good, but somehow it misses the connect to visitors. Its great with amazing bars and restaurant, but if u need to bring some needed solitude and still feel homely... this would be hotel i recommend. I had been here with my family as well, and my kids liked it.

This hotel is very recent and rooms are simply great. Very spacious, well equipped kitchen, large clean and modern bathroom (which is not often the case in Sweden), quiet. Clean and free laundry room. Good buffet breakfast. Nice and friendly staff. Location is good, few tram stops from downtown and close to Lisberg park. Unfortunately we chose the public parking lot next to hotel, recommended by the hotel staff for better cost over several days (parking is available in hotel but much more expensive). We had a vandalism act overnight on our rental car (one tire knife destroyed) which cost us money and half day to repair on a lovely day. So we do not recommend do use this parking, despite in general Sweden is a safe place. All together a very good experience and warmly recommended.

Good clean hotel, near the tram. So easy to get around. Breakfast was not that good, I expected it to be better at a 4 star hotel. Rented a suite with sauna and was very pleased with it. Clean hotel and friendly personal.

After staying in numerous so-so hotels across Sweden this looked like a 5 star hotel. Delicious breakfast with a wide array of food. Super friendly staff. Parking garage with a 1 time fee. Grocery on the same steps! Free washing machines (even though they were tiny). We had a patio with open doors and furniture. A kitchenette. A roomy bathroom. Even the couch sleeper was comfy! Only downside had to pay for a cheap tram ticket to get into town (but worth it because you can use it for site seeing) and there's a lot of construction going on. Highly recommend

Mektagonen is located between Gothenburg and Mölndal with direct access to Tram 2 and 4 which brings you to the city in a couple of minutes. The rooms as such are more apartments rather than "rooms". You have fully equipped kitchenette, eating table and additional sleeping couch. Restaurant experience was very good, breakfast is Swedish and European standard

This hotel may not be the best hotel, it has an average breakfast, and was at times quite noisy due to a group of other guests, but it perfectly suited our needs as travelers driving around Scandinavia. The best part of the hotel was the free use of their guest washers and dryers on the fourth and sixth floors. There is a sign-up sheet for the dates and times you want to use the machines. We found they were often simply used on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need to use your own laundry soap, but you can easily find some very inexpensive laundry supplies at the Willy's supermarket on the ground level of the hotel complex, amongst other businesses. You could also buy the soap from the hotel. The room was fairly spacious and had a small kitchenette with a stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, cooking & eating utensils, pots & pans, dishes, and cups. (Keep in mind that you have to do your own dishes, or pay about US$25 for the hotel to do them, but they provide dish soap and other cleaning supplies.) We found Willy's to be a very nice grocery store with reasonable prices and shopped there for a few meals in the room. The hotel has an on-site secured (at night) parking garage at a cost of SEK 145 per day. (Note that the city of Gothenburg charges variable prices for street and parking-lot parking, so bring a credit card and/or coins if you drive. The Parkopedia app was very useful to compare pricing.) The fitness center is a separate business at the site, for which the hotel will sell you discounted passes. We did not use the fitness center. I can't remember the price, but we thought it was a little expensive. We got fresh towels and toiletries refilled every day. Our sheets were only changed once during our four-night stay. The breakfast was very basic, but they did have a non-dairy section and an orange- and grapefruit-juicing station. This is also a cashless hotel.

Hotel Mektagonen is a very well managed hotel. The rooms are extraordinarily big — they are small apartments with kitchen, living room and everything you need for an extended stay. Highly recommended.
