Recent guest reviews

We stayed in a superior room on the 12th floor. Great view, fine beds. Bathroom are great. Bar is old and need some renovation breakfast has been improved with more food stations. Friendly service from all the staff.

We har a great stay at Scandic Opalen! The hotell is nice and the dinner We ate at the hotel was perfect! It is situated near Ullevi, Scandinavium and Liseberg, We walked there and it was ok, even for the kids!

noisy (slamming doors in corridor), very small room for 220 E / night, unfriendly reception, no warm water in evening etc OVERPRICED (even for Sweden). Even in week of big Exposition, one would expect better bang for the buck..

Nice hotel close to Nya Ullevi/Liseberg. They were renovating while I was there, but that was not any inconvenience for me. Room was newly renovated and looked nice. Breakfast is always varied and good in Scandic, but the bacon could have been fried more, to my taste.

My second home where I have always enjoyed great hopitalty and friendly faces! The food is excellent, the rooms are comfortable and clean and everybody pitches in to make your stay a positive one. Been staying since 1987.

Had to move to 8th floor due to construction. Don't take elevators and had to walk up and down for 4 days. Was promised a 1st floor room...and then I got there. "It will be a bit noisy". Concrete drills and I could not hear myself think. Very, very bad experience.

Nice hotel close to Nya Ullevi/Liseberg with a great view (if you get a room in the highest floors). They were renovating while I was there, but that was not any inconvenience for me. I had a Superior room on the 11th floor, room was new, fresh and clean with a great view. Breakfast is always varied and good in Scandic.

The locations is great nice rooms and view , ok breakfast but the wifi didnt work and and too smal gym missed the soap in the shower. Stayed there for one night for bussiness so that all I can say now

We stayed in Gothenburg over night only. We are a family of four. We are very pleased with everyting! Location, service, parking, breakfast and so on. it was nice to use the spa, very cosy. We strongly recomend this hotel!!

The hotel forgot to tell about reparation works. During the day it was impossible not only to sleep, but even stay there. The location of the hotel is good. Breakfast is exellent. But on my opinion value for money is low.
