Wonderful stay, as always
Excellent stay, as always. The hotel is in a great location, close to everything in Gothenburg. The Flybus from the airport stops nearby too. It’s an older building but very well maintained. The staff are wonderful and accommodating especially Alisher. The rooms are fine and great value for money. Breakfast offers ample choice too. I have stayed in fancier hotels in Gothenburg but this one is a true gem hence I keep returning.

exceptional staff
Easy to find and very centrally located hotel. My room was very good for the price I paid. What will make me return to this particular hotel is the staff though. I’ve stayed in other places before but Nina was exceptional regarding customer service! What an asset you have in her! Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.
