The location is quite good and the staff is really nice. The breakfast is OK and it's a nice idea that you can make your own waffles during the afternoon, even if I was not at the hotel at that time any of the days I stayed. The bed was horrible. Far from comfortable and made sounds as soon as you moved any part just slightly. Not a good nights sleep. If you are not as sensitive as I am with how the bed is, this hotel is worth its price.
I recently traveled to Gothenburg for a holiday, and I was impressed at this hotel. Checking in and checking out was both prompt and efficient, and they were kind enough to grant me a late check-out on my final day, which was much appreciated. The location of the hotel is also good. It's located near the central train station, so you can easily walk there when you arrive and leave Gothenburg by train. The hotel was also located across the road from a park which had the Palmhuset attraction which was very nice. For people who like to cycle, there were also two bike sharing stations in convenient locations near the hotel. If you don't want to cycle though, the hotel's location is more than adequate to allow you to walk to any attractions in the city center, or to other attractions like Haga or Skansen Kronan. Overall, this hotel was very nice, and I can recommend it to anyone traveling to Gothenburg on a solo trip at least. The only disadvantage was the early closure of the complimentary breakfast buffet on weekdays, since it closed at 9:30am.
I have a mixed reaction to this hotel. The first impressions are not great - the hotel looks a bit bleak on the outside and the entrance area is very strange. However we got a friendly welcome. We never saw the same person on reception twice, but all the staff seemed friendly and well trained. The room was basic and reasonably clean (although perhaps not up to normal very high Swedish standards). The breakfast was OK. Other good points - good location (near Avenyn), free coffee, tea, biscuits and cake at all times in the lounge and freshly made waffles late afternoon (very good), good wifi. I can't comment on the value as this was paid on account by the company, but at the right price this would be a OK place to stay.
I just took two nights on hotel and its so amazing it cost 800 kr per night and you have your own jacuzzy in the room and amazing views i really recommend this hotel in gothenburg. Its very cheap and breakfast included
My husband and I recently stopped at the Hotel Allen for a long weekend in Gothenburg. At the time of booking, the hotel was reasonably priced which is why we booked it. The hotel is not large and it is not luxurious but it is comfortable and had everything we needed. The bedroom was not large, but it was big enough for what we needed as we were out most of the time anyway. The bathroom was nice, with underfloor heating. In fact, despite the fact we visited in December, the whole hotel was pleasantly warm. The location of the hotel is good as we were within easy walking distance of the city centre and also Liseberg, and the Ullevi stadium is just around the corner. Our bedroom was on the ground floor and close to reception so we could hear the bell and we could hear the traffic from the road outside, but to be honest we slept very well every night we were there so this wasn't a problem. Our room had a hairdryer in the bathroom, TV in the room and free wifi. There weren't any tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms, but the lounge near reception does have these facilities. Our room was so close we could easily nip out when we wanted a drink. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful, and there is a facility to store your luggage on the day you check out. Overall I would recommend this hotel for a city break. We had friends who were staying at the bigger, more luxurious hotels in the city centre and this hotel is not in that league. However, it does represent good value for money and if you just want somewhere clean and tidy to sleep and have breakfast, then you can't go wrong.
We arrived on a Sunday evening in December. We had to ring the bell for the door to be unlocked in order to enter what looked like the back staircase - in fact, it was the main staircase. Racks left in corridor ready to service rooms. Room adequate size but very minimalist - no pictures etc. The two beds had no headboards, only one small pillow and a duvet. Overall it was a bleak welcome although the girl at reception was pleasant and helpful. The shower room was reasonable but looked tired. The only toiletries were wall-mounted dispensers. Although tea/coffee etc are available in what is called the lounge are available 24 hours, there is no facility in the room. Biscuits and some cakes were available but we never saw any waffles. Breakfast is just about acceptable although the room is a bit small. The location is fine although it always felt as though we were entering via the back door. Overall this does not feel like a hotel - it has the feel of a hostel for workers. On a positive note, the staff were very pleasant and friendly.
Had a great experience during three nights stay in this hotel. Ms. Hannah at the reception was very friendly, professional, going extra miles and always cooperative to assist and help in exploring the city option with map guidance
The family wanted to go to an amusement park and Liseberg was the choice. Spontaneous trip and also a spontaneous hotel booking were done, joust considering was were available close to the park. Yes is within walking distance to the park and the city center. That’s more or less everything positive that can be said about Hotel Allen in Gothenburg. Everything else conceding the price level were not much to write about. See the traveler photos, those says it all.
This is no top-class hotel, but it is a very nice place to stay visiting Gothenburg. Ok pricing, ok location and ok breakfast. Wifi included as well. Got what I payed for. Stayed for a business trip and I was satisfied with everything.
My regular hotel in Göteborg was fully booked so this hotel come up as a result of that and I'm not sorry it did. Rooms was okay sized and the bed really comfy. The windows did open and that was a most since the room did not have air condition. But when almost one of the walls was divided up into four Windows it was okay. This hotel is not one of the biggest hotel I have been to, but at breakfast that did really pay of. Because they did only cook up the warm stuff like bacon in small batches so it was always warm. The bread to was only broth out in small portions at a time. It's was just so worth it. At breakfast you could get cafe, tea and hot cocoa, and Appel or orange juice to drink. They had complimentary cafe and tea all day long, but since this was not in the breakfast room I don't know what they did offer there since I never just it. All inn all I had a wonderful time, and will think of this hotel again when I come back to Göteborg!
