Recent guest reviews

1 adult and 3 kids for 3 nights, overall very well. The hotal is clean and very nice service. Very close by foot to Liseberg, several usual Food shops just around the corner. Good breakfirst buffet, good Food buffet for kids in their own restaurant. We can recommend this Hotel for family trip to Liseberg!

Very good rooms, breakfast, service and dinner. Appreciated by all members in the company. We vill all come back! As Gothenburg is the birth town of my husband and me, wi will present i to all our five grandchildren. This was the first visit ond it will be more!

Large and impersonal hotel, without any distinctive feature apart from seeming too much family-orientated, if judged by the legions of children (all very well-mannered: this is a fact, not a criticism!) present at breakfast time. The standard room is correct but very small and without interesting views, and the staff is not especially friendly. I can't recommend this place to couples, but neither to the curious traveler who wants to explore Gothemburg (a lovely town that deserves to be more valued by foreigners) because there are lots of hotels closer to the points of interest.

We were satisfied. Good place with kids. 10 minutes tog go to centrum to Liseberg, universum and kulturmuseet. Parking was okej. There are food station nearby and a cinema. The breakfast was very Good!!

We arrived several hours early and no room were ready yet. The very helpful staff showed us the room where we could store our luggage over the day, we recieved a cardkey to that room and the staff prepared everything so that when we returned in the afternoon we could just recieve our roomkey and needed info. We headed of to Liseberg and got all important info regarding wich train or bus to take, how often it went and where. The hotel has a distance of 750 meter to get to liseberg, however the transportation with train was really appriciated both of the nights when we were completely exhausted after all of the fun stuff in liseberg, it`s a really big tivoli with lot`s of walking uphills and then down again:) Our hotelroom was well cleaned and if there was anything missing or that we needed, we just contacted the reception or the helpful and nice cleainglady, all that we wanted we could have. The hotel is super and classy, the buffè for breakfast, free for hotelguests, was the biggest hit ever! Name your likings for breakfast and I garantee that they have it, I was completely impressed! The lobby was relaxing and big and the spa-area, also free for hotelguests, where you can take a sauna, relax in the jacuzzi, get a massage and more were excellent and clean! The familyroom were perfect for me and my two boys, totally priceworthy. Right ouside the hotel we had restaurants, different stores for shopping, movieteather across the street and the trainstation within 30 meters distance from the hotellobby. What we liked the best was the breakfastbuffè, free wifi and actually everything. If I have to like something less then it has to be that only one of four icemachines was available, but my oh my how I loved that machine, I am totally addicted to ice in whatever i drink so I loved that too!!! Looking forward to our next visit in a few months:)

Excellent location, nice rooms, very good breakfast. Resonable price. It's a Scandic hotel basically, meaning you know what you get.. I really don't know what more to write here but since i have to write 200 charactars i just keep going..:-)..

We have stayed at this hotell many times. It has a very nice location, close to Liseberg, the city, shopping, Paddan etc. The rooms are ok, we ordered very late, the day before we came, so we got very small rooms, because that were all they had left, but it was ok. The cleaning was not so good, hair in the shower, dust on the floor and missing towels. But the reception staff were nice. Their breakfast is also good, but the hotell was full, 900 guests they said, so the restaurant was full all morning. All the other times we have stayed here a couple of days in the summer, it has never been so full of children as it was now. It looked like the hotell now has a special childfriendly program and prices, so it was a little fussy and noisy stay for us, especially at breakfast, in the restaurant and in the reception. But, anyway, we like this hotell, and maybe we will come back.

Scandic Hotel is a perfect hotel centrally located in Gothenburg, very good rooms, good governance, great breakfast and many offers at the hotel. I received good service all the time, attention from staff, smiling and nice cleaners. The hotel had many offerings of day and night, restaurant and bar, great areas to relax also in the reception area. Will use the hotel also on next visit to the city, central to most of the city.

Freddie Wadlings Kabinett at Göteborgs Stadsmuseum - just se it! Liseberg is a must and all the restaurants are worth visiting. Take a walk by "the forgotten harbour" and a trip with Paddan. Just sit and look at people having a soft icecream. Love it!

The room have space to work in if you have travel a lot. It is also a block away from the the Gothenburg fair. Privately I like the hotel since it is close to the city center and the movies are across the street. If you want to go to the amusement park it is just a few blocks away. The staff are first class and very friendly.
