Best Western Plus Waterfront Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Friendly staff, clean and good size room, great location, beautiful waterfront, perfect with car parking is cheap and easy. I can highly recommend this hotel. Breakfast was ok, view in the restaurant was fantastic.

Hotel Waterfront has changed from being in the Novotel chain to the Best Western chain, but the hotel looks exactly the same. The rooms are large and very nice, however somewhat hot during the night. The included breakfast buffet is also great and the view over the harbour is stunning at sunset. The hotel is perfect if you don't want to hassle with the traffic in the centre of Gothenburg and try to find a parking lot, and the tram station is only a few hundred meters from the hotel.

Nice hotel right at the harbor. Very friendly staff and great breakfast buffet. Beautiful harbor views and access to restaurants. Family friendly. Hotel is right o a bike path and offers free bikes for you to bike all the way to the end along the water's edge.

This hotel offers a great waterfront view, from the restaurant or if you booked a superior room. We are traveling as party of four (family) and booked a room with a kings and a sofa bed. The kids use the sofa bed, all sleeping facilities are comfortable. The room‘s size are good for a family. There is a small fridge and water boiler. The breakfast is great. There is a gym and a sauna (haben‘t tried, because of lacking time).

Excellent hotel, no complaints at all. Good service, great view when you have a room facing the water. Good buffet breakfast offers. We are returning to this hotel in November for the Porter-festival. Great hotel for families, couples, friends.

Located at the waterfront with easy access to the center. Nice and big rooms with great facilities. Sauna, steam room and whirlpool available for free. Hotel used to be a brewery and still has the looks.

I have no complaints whatsoever about this hotel (or any of the three Best Western Plus hotels I've stayed at). The building is very nice and the room (Superior) was nicely furnished with an excellent bathroom. Unfortunately we were in a hurry in the morning and only had about 10-15 minutes to spend at breakfast, but what we saw and had time for was really good. Also, we were served a quite nice "early breakfast" in the lobby. Staff was friendly and the view was nice. For us, who had a ferry to Denmark to catch it was a perfect stay. If you're visiting Gothenburg for other reasons you may find it a bit far away from downtown. Also, I think parking ought to be free, especially if it's not in a garage.

An overall very good impression, clean, firendly staff, good service and one of the better buffet breakfast offers. We had a choice of room with a bathtub or shower, we chose the shower option. This resulted in a room with a view onto the courtyard and not the view we have expected from the photos on the website. I keep thinking that I should've taken the bathtub after all.. although there is no rule to this , I believe.. ;) Anyway, after a long car trip we were too tired to care about the view too much, so we left it at that. This and the fact that the hotel is quite far away from the main city centre, is the reason for not giving the full 5-star score.

The hotel is located a little out of the city centre literally at the Waterfront in a very nice part of the city. You can reach downtown Gothenburg in a few minutes by a tram service (or by boat). Ample parking facilities with low cost. I was very well received by front desk staff. My room was large and very clean. Excellent wifi free or charge. Excellent breakfast as well. The room rates were very high, but this was probably a special situation as Coldplay were in Gothenburg and demand for hotel rooms was extraordinarily high,

We just stayed at the Best Western Plus Hotel Waterfront for one night with our children. We have been coming to Goteborg for years and have stayed all over the city, however this was our first time staying outside of the city center. What a gem of a hotel. We loved the location, right next to the water, and our room had a water view. This location was a lot more relaxed than downtown locations and we thought it was perfect place to stay with our children. We loved walking along the water and the neighborhood was very charming with beautiful, old brick buildings. We took the water taxi into the center of town and we really enjoyed the boat ride and thought that we were seeing Goteborg in a whole new light. The room itself was typical of most hotel rooms, certainly big enough and providing all of the amenities one would expect. The floors and furniture was starting to show a little wear, but with two young children, we were okay with that. I did appreciate the complimentary bottle water that was provided and also a nice little package for kids upon arrival. We took advantage of the spa area and that was very nice, with a hot tub, sauna and steam room. Breakfast was also a cut above what we normally find in hotels in Goteborg and definitely better than some of the more posh hotels in the area. The water view at breakfast was also special. Staff was friendly and helped us with restaurant recommendations in the area and also the water taxi. Overall a very enjoyable visit! We rarely stay at the same hotel twice, but perhaps we might change our minds after our stay here.
