Hotel Vasa

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The university had booked this room for me. I was shocked when I saw it - shabby, bordering on grubby (cracked sink, cracked tiles on the floor of the shower, cheap toilet paper, grey, thin towels - basically nothing that conveyed any care for the guest). When I arrived, I would have liked to have had a shower but there was no hot water from the sink tap and I didn't want to take the chance of having a shower. Although disappointed I thought that it would do for two nights. But on the first night before I was due to give an early morning lecture, I was woken by loud singing from the pub at 1am that carried on for more than an hour. Needless to say, I didn't feel great the next day. The staff although friendly, can't seem to be bothered to do anything to make things better. I was told by the receptionist that if it happens again to come down and tell them (clearly getting dressed in the middle of the night and going down to reception will further disrupt your sleep). Having read other reviews, I can now see that the noise is a regular complaint, so the staff are aware of it but the receptionist acted as if she was surprised when I told her. So again, a don't care attitude. I have heard that you should book a refurbished room, so maybe this will lead to a better experience, but it might not make a difference to the noise. So I leave for home, more tired and more disappointed. I often visit Sweden and this is the first time I have had an experience like this. I have told the university in the hope that future visitors will be spared this experience.

It's downtown, it's clean and not too expensive. Had a good night's sleep and my own bedroom. Reception staff was welcoming and helpful but breakfast was nothing to write home about. Looked very 80s but well enough kept. Quiet.

This is a price worthy hotel with friendly staff and a cozy interior that makes you feel at home. The staff is very helpful and they go out of their way to help you. A big thumbs up for that. Everything is well kept and tidy and the rooms are cozy and spacious. The breakfast was good, and you can have pancakes in the lobby at any time, if you're hungry. The location is great - close to the center and within walking distance to most places where a regular visitor would want to go. I recommend staying here.

Minus for : - no elevator from the ground floor. ( It goes from the first floor.) - Carpet (heltäckningsmatta ) - Noises from the pub and tramcar (I couldn't sleep before around 3 a.m.) - Over boiled eggs - old furniture - uncomfortable bed Plus for : - biscuits, coffee machine and waffles. (all day ) - Salmon on the breakfast. - bread This hotel is more like a Bed & Breakfast. Absolutely not an 3 stairs hotel.

vintage, minimalist and modern at the same time...great location and service...the girls are the reception are so helpful and kind.. Breakfast is nice and healthy...good for the price. totally quiet an clean

The location was walking distance to most areas. The staff were really friendly. The breakfast was tasty. The room was a little dated run down but adequate... the double bed consisted of two singles not attached to each other which was 'interesting' though!

The selling point of Hotel Vasa for me was the great location in proportion to the price. I feel I made a good decision in regards of this as everything is close by and it's much cheaper then anything else I found in the city centre. The staff are very friendly, fairly informative about the city. One of the best points about the hotel is that they have snacks, juice, tea and coffee available 24/7 in the breakfast area (picture attatched) , where you can also make your own waffles in the evening. This is really a great thing as I have never seen this in a hotel before, apart from executive lounges. The rooms are adequate, the bed is comfortable, the bathrooms are a little on the small side, however this did not cause any inconvenience for me. The room also has a nice sized flat screen Samsung TV, which is a nice touch. The WiFi is good and reliable on all of the floors. Breakfast is also tasty, with a nice range of options. The only thing that bothered me a little bit was when we returned to our rooms each day, around 2/3 o clock in the afternoon, the housekeeping had still not been and when they came, we passed the opportunity because we wanted to relax in the room. Overall though a good stay and I would recommend it to people visiting the city.

I stayed at Hotel Vasa on a business trip for two nights. The hotel did in my view not live up to three stars. The room was so small that I had difficulties to open the entrance door after having opened my suitcase on the floor. The interior was quite old and felt shabby. The worst was that I found quite a few hairs from previous guests in the bathroom. Overall, I felt quite uncomfortable at the hotel. However, the staff was really lovely.

3 nights in Gothenburg at this hotel that was chosen by my hosts. A small friendly hotel - no tea and coffee in rooms but available with cakes and snacks 24/7 in the hotel breakfast room. Plus make your own waffles available in the afternoon and evenings - a very nice addition.

We stayed in this family owned hotel, which is perfectly located between Avenyn and Haga, well deserved with two trams just around the corner. As some reviews have pointed out before, some rooms are for sure in need of a bit of refurbishment, this was the case with the family room we stayed in which seemed a bit over priced for what it was. However, the general feel and nice breakfast and lounge area compensates for the not yet re-furbished rooms, and the possibility to have a coffee, cinnamon bun or waffles when you come home after a busy day is absolutely lovely! I can recommend this hotel if you are travelling with children, if you need a playground there is one just close to the Haga Church (I think it was), about 200 m away from the hotel.
