Scandic Opalen

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Recieved a cool welcoming when arriving. The room had been nicely renovated and was cozy, but was poorly sound insulated. Bed was comfortable but the quilt was too narrow. Bathroom was fresh with good light. Crowded at breakfast, but a lot of great food to choose from.

A well positioned hotel for exploring Liseberg and other attractions in Göteborg. We got a room on the 10:th floor with a nice view of the surrounding area and the room seemed to be recently refurbished and was in perfect shape when it comes to cleanliness and general maintenance. No room service and apparently the hotel lacks permissions to serve a drink/ glass of wine to guests in rooms decreases the overall impression, especially as staff was rather unfriendly when asked about it.

Visited the hotel on a business trip for one night. Nice reception and restaurant/bar. Unfortunatly, I forgot my sweather in the hotelroom and called the hotel the day after checkout. For for some strange reason the cleaning staff was not able to find it which I doubt.

I stayed at Scandic Opalen one night (business trip). My experience with the receptionist was pretty poor, obviously she doesn't like her job and she wanted to get rid of me asap. The hotel garage was full and I asked her where to park, she wasn't very eager to help or give advice so I ended up parking behind the hotel and in the morning found a parking ticket for 600Kr. I am sure I am not staying here again.

well hotel, central in town close to entertaiments, personal was stressed and we didn't get welcome experience, Food ended for breakfast, so no herring, no bacon meatball or scrambled egg, but we was stiff after breakfast. its minus for that guest computers are away from lobby.

Just a perfect location when you will be near to Liseberg og Ullevi.Or just wanna take a walk in the shopping street.Many resturants near by and you can also go to Scandinavium across the street to see a show or a game.

A nice a clean hotel close to city center an the fare. The veiw was grate. Gym was ok a little bit small bit had the necesary equipment. Unfortunately the pool was closed due to renovation but this will be good in the future.

To high room price for an everage hotel. Central location and good standard over all but to expensive during weekdays. Nice and clean and good breakfast. Friendly staff behind the reception desk. Missing one thing, a bottel of water on the bedside table.

It's, easy to stay at Scandic Hotels with kids. The Scandic thoroughly prepared policy when it comes to kids triumphs in small things and bigger. Typical examples is the children's menu at dinner and a little gift at arrival.

I enjoyed the stay at Opalen. The food at the company dinner in the evening was excellent. The breakfast is also very good and quiet if you are an early bird. For shopping in city you need to take a walk, but it's not very far.
