Recent guest reviews

Pretty luxurious hotel with nice rooms and comfortable beds, also the showers are very nice and nice touch with luxury shampoo. The breakfast was really nice as well no complaints there. The relaxing area was very nice and clean, you have steaming room in each changing rooms and one quiet big jacuzzi. The negative sides are the rooms are none smoking but we smelled cigarets when we came in ... don't know if it came from the ventilation or someone had smoked in the hall way. There are a few instructions going on with the elevators some other guests has pointed that out. The room we stayed in was very cold and only AC worked and we had to turn it off. Anyway the check in and out went well the only negative there was the guy left us a piece of paper and said read it you have all information there instead of explaining for us quick info about the hotel.

We stayed here over New Years eve for 3 nights and would highly recommend. The hotel is well positioned (especially for New years to watch the fireworks) The wonderful area of Haga is a short stroll away and plenty of wonderful bars and restaurants very close by, Brew Dog and Boules bar to name a few. The sky bar was a wonderful place to sit and drink cocktails before heading out for the evening. Our room was of a very high standard and cleaned daily to a high standard, the staff were all very friendly and welcoming and great communication prior to our arrival via email etc. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi facilities while here and also enjoyed breakfast in a very lovely breakfast room overlooking the marina. Overall would highly recommend a visit to this hotel. Thanks

Good sleep in a nice hotel room. Late arrival in mid night without chance to try the hotel restaurant. But I will definite do that during the next visit. The hotel locates in the central of the city with excellent view.

Pro's: Location - situated on riverside and city center Cleaning - Clean room, clean sanitary Housekeeping - not disturbing, does the job Room amenities - Complimentary Water, Ironing Eq. in the room, properly equipped Con's: Room Temperature - Room was not warm enough (may be only for Nordic people), 24 degrees should be more than ok but AC was probably having a thermostat fault Doors - Doors are not equipped with a rubber band, closing the doors make noise when other rooms use the doors harshly, it felt the door was closed in my room. Noise - I woke up around 7 a.m with a repeated noise like someone is jogging on the upper floor. I was staying at 5th floor, fitness is at 2nd. Called the Recep. and somehow it stopped. dont know if it was just a coincedence. But they were kind enough to change my room if noise persists. Lights - main lights cannot be controlled when in bed

Stay there while i was in Gothenburg. Very good stay. The service was good too. The location is great. Near to train station and city, so it's easy to explore the city. The view is also good. There is water view outside. They have nice breakfast buffet.

This is my first stay in this hotel and I am totally amazed at the service which this hotel has to offer. What makes the place even better is the absolutely warm and friendly staff here. My special thanks to Richard and Samira at the Front Desk. The Sky view lounge and restaurant is superb. The view from Level 12 is breathtaking and so is the food, My full marks to Chef Richard who made the best risotto I have ever had. Coupled with the Dil and Celery Soup, it was one of the best meals I had ever had. Thanks to Ella and Carl Gunnar as much who served with their heart and soul. Thank You !

Comfortable spotless room. Excellent bed. Staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant was good. Varied menu food good quality. Breakfast typical of region. Satisfactory selection, buffet style. Limited hot food.

The location of the hotel is cental and we did not use any means of transport to explore the city. The room was really nice and comfortable providing all the convenience that a 4 star hotel may give. The room was of course very clean. The breakfast was very good providing a big variety from cereal to scrambled eggs and many more. The staff was friendly but we did not have to interact with them a lot. The price is normal. Hotel Riverton provides all the comforts and I definitely propose it if you visit Gotheburg. p.s. the skybar at the top is amazing, providing an amazing view of the port. We had a cocktail one of the nights stayed there and we really enjoyed it.

Very clean and comfortable and what you would expect from a Swedish establishment. Stayed here before and never had any problems. Location was great for me. Breakfast is typical of the region and not to everyone's taste but it is ample and tasty. Staff very professional.

It was some time ago since I stayed here last time. At that time I was not so convinced about my stay at the Riverton. This time it was better. My room (410) was still small, but the bed is comfortable and the room very silent. Bathroom was better and no problems with the shower this time. Fast wifi. I also have to mention that I enjoyed a nice dinner on the 12th floor....much better than the average hotel food!
