The pictures of the rooms are not what you get. The hotel blamed it on Bookings.com. They would not give us the room promised unless we paid an additional 200SEK. The superior rooms are the size of a closet. Also most rooms have windows that do not open or open onto interior space. Not good with no Air-conditioning.
to warm, no airco. as window was open noicy outside early morning
Received a warm welcome at check-in. Bedrooms were spotlessly clean and the entire hotel had an old-fashioned charm. Some of the bedrooms are internal, without any outside view. Reserve one with street frontage.
I was very disappointed to find the restaurant closed and that the bar was to close early. We travelled with a baby and at no point on the booking.com website or hotel website were we told that as it was midsummer the hotel facilities would be curtailed. The staff just shrugged their shoulders and offered no apology.
Very good location just at the city center and close to the shopping area. Breakfast is very good and has the swedish hint to it. Room was nice and had a great feeling.
Nice bed, clean room. Noise from the street made sleeping with an open window impossible. The position and size of the TV made it impractical to watch TV in bed.
clean and calm
Staff friendly and responsive Size of the room
The hotel had great interior. Proffessional staff and great breakfast.
The hotel is well mantaind but bathrooms are quite dated. Rooms clean and reasonably big. It is good but can be imporved (it is quite sad). Good breakfast No shower not renewed bathroom
WE liked everything about the hotel Dont Think so
Very clean and breakfast was very nice. Great location of hotel. The beds where to soft.
Rooms are very clean and nicely designed. Location is very good, in the city center and close to the trade center.
Central location in the town and nice surroundings + good breakfasts and very comfortable room
Deluxe room was very quiet and facilities were clean and in good working order Had to go outside to get to a resteraunt or bar that was not very expensive
the bed we slept in was fantastic, big and not too soft... wish there was bath salt or sth more interesting to have a bobble bath in
Position; breakfasts, and most staff are very friendly. Bedroom was comfortable. Restaurant fully booked on Friday night and, even as a resident, I could not get a table. Also, wireless internet code changes every 3 hours and cable connection seemed slow, so that was not convenient.
close to everything There was building/construction work being carried out on the Saturday morning from about 10.30am when we were still in our room
Location, comfortable room, good breakfast buffet no coffeemaker in the room
great location friendly staff Internet very slow - cost me prob one hour. They are aware of the problem. Beds very soft-needed a board inserted. Room air stale - I mean it´s a 4 star hotel. Should not have probs.
WLAN ist free but you have to go to the reception every 8 hours to get a new access code narrow parking space in the garage
The beds are excellent quality, clean room The room was very small and almost no possibilty to put my suitcase somewhere. And the room had a pretty noisy vent system.
Design! room too small and too dark. Breakfast too much running. Coffee???
The best is location and decoration of hotel rooms which is original. The rooms are very small, even those like a suite. bed is very short and I mesure 1.60....so can`t even imagine somebody taller! Tv is placed on the wall, 50 cm from your face so if u sit at the table or on the small sofa it is impossible to watch it! You have to stay in the bed! The main corridors at the hotel are quite dirty and look like nobody cleand them since years.....so for a hotel of 4 stars and with such price such be very importat!!! What surprised me directly from the entrance that reception = bar...! It is definately not a hotel to stay for a business!
central location, low weekend rate, clean room expensive parking (ca. ~200 SEK), somewhat 'vintage' interiour, breakfast is in a ( rather dark) bar
location, parking garage Dark color room, so it is dark inside. Old key system, Little dated, bad smel in shower
Excellent location, nice clean room, free wifi, very pleasant and helpful staff, very good rate.
Nice breakfast, convenient location
Great location. Helpful staff. Comfortable There was no room for me on the day I arrived. The hotel made other accommodations for me and took care of transportation and offered other extras. So they managed the situation well. Would have been better had it not happened.
The hotel`s design. The staff can be slow at the reception sometimes.
Too far from town
The staff and the breakfast were wonderful. The breakfast was the best I have had in any hotel. I speak from experience being both a chef and a traveler. Was very dissappointed with the "relax" room. It was not at all what is seemed to be in the ads. The room was ugly with one hot tub which was not very warm and packed with guests. It was a joke really. The room was very small with no view, too expensive for the size.
The location of the hotel, the rooms bathroom, and the friendly staff at their bar. The hotel in general seems a bit old fashioned
Breakfast and location. In very expensive gothenburg, a decent deal for 3 nights. Room was very small, restaurant was too expensive, construction outside was awful for walking. No air conditioning. Very inflexible check in time. Very busy breakfast.
Great location Tiny bathroom. Uncomfortable bed. And loud. Lots of construction so very loud because of it.
Hotel conveniently located, very good and tasty breakfast, nice staff.
The friendliness adn support of the personnel; at the reception was excellent. Furthermore many chambers enloy a beautiful view over the harbor of Gothenburg. Thirdly, the hotel is well reachable, has an own free parking lot and is at walking distance of the city center with its attractions. We enjoyed a nice weekend in Riverton. The breakfast was ok, nice bread, yet ..... why not adding some fish dishes for which Sweden is famous.
Centrally located and bar upstairs has a great view. Bathrooms were all glass. No walls so no privacy!!
Great view from the bar in the upper floor. As expected, professional staff and organisation. Huge and good breakfast buffet. Design is a fantastic experience(big LCD screen, really nice furniture). In particular the bathroom looks really fancy. checkout time is also not bad , 12.00! For the price (think was a special offer, but I think this occur quite often), was really great. I can absolutely recommend it!
Very friendly reception and hot Glogg offered. View over Gotheburg from the bar on the 15th floor stunning and romantic with all the lights.
Vvery courteous and helpful staff
Surprised on the breakfast, good! Had to change room. Got a room without windows at first...
Very comfortable, good breakfast, good position, clean and well maintained and staff very helpful. Changed the room to one which was brighter and better outlook without any hastle. Would have been good to have tea/coffee facilities in room.
Clean and functional Hotel with excelent breakfast First floor rooms on the outside can be a bit noisy especialy if you like fresh air.
I liked the atmosphere, the design, the very friendly staff. The room was nice, but had a feel of an office more than a room.
Stayed there for two nights. The room was very comfortable and quiet (facing an inner terrace). Even though the room was small (which was exactly as advertised), it has been recently renovated and includes lots of functionality (they've done a great job with the design of the space). The bathroom was big, very clean, and comfortable. Great free breakfast. Very professional and genuinely helpful staff. Overall, I would definitely recommend it.
Good room, friendly staff, good location. The heater was turned on very high when we arrived late at night. This was not very nice to sleep in.
Great location, friendly staff, an iron in the room and free sparkling water.
Very nice rooms although not as big as I thought they would be and no view, the breakfast is fantastic though, and the staff were very helpful. For this standard of hotel you expect everything to be 100% however there were a few minor things that were a dissapointment such as the back of the tv remote control being missing, a plug for the sink missing, and a couple of things that appeared to be broken from the wall in the bathroom.Worst thing is getting to the hotel, there are too many one way streets in Gothenburg!
expensive but it worth paying for that. The location was great, just among all bars, shops and restaurants and just 30sec from the bus stop to the airport. The pool was closed.
Really frendly and nice staff who know how to take care of their guests!
I loved my superior room, and I found the staff outstandingly helpful. The breakfast was superb, and I really enjoyed the plunge pool, even though the hours of availability were restricted.This was a most enjoyable stay, and I plan to return to the hotel on another occasion.
Restaurant, location sanitary enginiring does not work properly in all rooms where I lived, uncomfortable planning of the rooms ( In the room N 6 angle of the wall very dangerous)
every thing was good the car barking cost toomuch and no businus cinter
location in town centre
Excellent location great breakfast and friendly steff A/C was not effecient noisy at nights
The staff and facilities were excellent For the price we paid I expected an even better hotel, but I suppose the excellent location added something to the price
Everything was ok. - 100% professional and comfortable hotel with a superb location and nice staff.
good place and price rapport to quality and service.
Staff at the reception was very nice (at the bar they were not!).The theme of the hotel "ruby" gave it a nice touch, every room having a differente name around the topic red, ruby, scralet, etc. The top floor might be nice if it wasn't raining and cold.Breakfast was very nice. There was no rpivacy for the guests, as the lobby-bar-restaurant of the hotel was a bar-rstaurant open to the public in general and always very busy and noisy. The bar staff was badly trained and not frindly at all. In spite of staff at the reception desk being very friendly, we complained about our room frigo-bar not bein working and the temperature of the room (which we could not set at all!) was too cold, nothing happened until the end of our 6 nigth staying! We both came home with a big cold! Rooms were too small for a 4* hotel.
The location is great! I did not like that the hotel charged my room before my stay as booking.com clearly has a policy of not charging the room before you actually saty there!
Friendlyness of the staff.
Very helpful staff. Location was right on one of the main streets in town. Absolutely fabulous buffet breakfast. Would stay again.
Outstanding breakfast! Nice modern hotel in the center of Gothenberg entertainment/shopping district. Hotel staff professional, helpful and freindly. Highly recommend! Although comfortable (economy queen), room was very small.
good taste of interior decor, location, helpful staff, excellent breakfast the room was small
great breakfast . great with laktos and glute free food!
The location is excellent, the breakfast great, and the staff very friendly Construction going on right next to my room. I was promised they would not begin untill after 9 - but in fact they started at 7:30.
Staff in general was friendly. Nice breakfast. Very small room, On the second day of my stay they woke me up at 07:15 hrs with maintenance work (banging). Rather noisy hotel due to its location and its bar especially on Friday night. No lobby area.
The staff were very helpful and the accommodation was good. The location for the city centre and my conference (University of Gothenburg) was excellent. n/a
The staff was incredibly helpful and replied to emails in no time The hotel would need renovation, it's very much old fashioned and the bathrooms are very basic. Breakfast was ok, but coffee was bad and no cappuccino was available.
The staff was very efficient, friendly, and I really felt they took care of me. The breakfast was really good. Perfect location, ironing facilities in the corridors and it felt like I was visiting some relatives Bathrooms a little outdated, but well functioning.
It was cery close to the city center and shopping mall. The bad was not comfortable and towels in the bathroom were not enough to use.
very nice location
Hotel Poseidon is a nice, family-owned hotel close to Gothenburg's center and close to other interesting areas of Gothenburg. Most of Gothenburg is in walking distance, otherwise tram stations are near the hotel. The breakfast buffet has a good selection of items and a marvelous variety of breads. For the other meals there are restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel.
The hotel has an excellent location. Near Haga and only about 10 minutes walk to the central coach/railway station station. The breakfast buffet was also excellent! Decor is a bit dated.
I liked the fact that it is in the heart of the city very close to the tourist attractions and in a very nice area. No, there's nothing that I disliked about the hotel.
attentive personel, informal atmosphere, quiet room, excellent location: easy to find on arrival and near to the center
The family feel of the hotel was excellent. The staff very nice and the location superb.
Very friendly, cute hotel near by the centre. Nice small restaurant. Breakfast only from 7 to 9. No parking without costs (but maybe normal for the city).
Very helpful, cheery staff. Colors of the linen as well as the table cloths, etc of the breakfast room. The plumbing in our room (specifically, the wash basin) did not work properly
The personal and quiet atmosphere!
Staff members were extremely helpful. The complimentary breakfast offered a variety of items and was superb. The hotel was clean and tidy, and is in a good part of town. Restaurants were reasonably close by.
The helpfulness of the front desk staff No
Close to the location of the conference I was attending. The SPA My reservation was not in their computers. So it took a while to get the room in the first place.
beautiful hotel with very accomodating staff and great, enthusiastic guests. just a short walk from the hotel to the heart of the city.
The friendliness and courtesy of the staff was an example to all hotels in Göteborg. Room could not be faulted and breakfast first class. I would highly recommend a stay . Nothing
Close proximity to Scandinavium and the friendly and helpful staff. The room furnishing was not very functional and certain pieces should not have been placed in the room as it was quite small. The hotel was still good value for money and the personel were very helpful. A revamp of the breakfast area might improve the congestion.
location, quiet room long check-out line in morning - why can't this be done online? or through the tv?
Elevator is slow and overcrowded
Friendly staff and atmosphere.10 minute walk to Avenyn. Rooms and beds are very small,but at this price range you cannot get anything bigger in Sweden
Very good location, the hotel is clean and well run. Breakfast buffet wasn't bad. There is a free wireless internet connection and a computer if you don't have your own laptop. Next door to a good pub, you are also in the old part of town.
Good location, pleasant staff.
I was very impressed by their serving freshly baked gluten-free bread for breakfast. I mentioned my gluten intolerance when booking, but this was a far superior kind of bread compared to what I'm used to being served. Also, the bed was very comfortable. I'm a light sleeper, so it's very muchappreciated. I was worried when I saw the room was placed just by the elevator, but it turned out to be very quiet. There was quite a lot of noice in the corridor in the early morning though.
Bright, cheerful, pleasant room. Excellent breakfast buffet Bed mattress too soft.
The location is excellent and stuff really helpful. Coffee including Cappuccino and tea downstairs are available 24 hour, thats really good. There is a very-very nice, cheap and delicious, fast...Italian Cafe "Mio" on the same street on the the direction away from the bridges. I strongly recommend you to go there if you search for good like home food and very romantic and in the same time cosy atmosphere. The hotel is a little bit oriental, with the strange very male perfume used while cleaning. But this can be my personal thing. Would be better to write the way to the hotel on their page.Although it was quite easy to find.
The location was perfect for me, and it was good value for the price. The shower cabin was very small, but it could not have been bigger, because the whole bathroom was very small.
The staff was very friendly. They gave us great tips for dinning and hotspots.
central location in city; family setting
Staff, Location and Rooms very good
wafels in the afternoon, tea and fruits during the whole day
Friendly helpful staff good location small room
Privacy!!! Not all the film channels were working on the TV and those that did the sound was too low to actually hear the film comfortably...even with the sound on full volume!!!
nice comfortable beds breakfast was not sign posted and a few people missed it on the Monday morning. Me inclusive.. :-(
it's accessible to everything
Free coffee, tea 24hrs day, free wafle during afternoon, very pleasant and friendly staff (reception, maids etc.), cleanliness of the room, free wifi available in room maybe room was little bit smaller than I expected but that's not real problem
Friendly & helpful staff. Free afternoon DIY waffles & 24hr tea & coffee was a quirky novelty. The location is excellent, free WiFi worked well and there is plentiful pay parking directly opposite. I thought my stay represented great value based on the late booking rate I paid.
Food was well thought out for every palette. Breads, cereals, fruits and vegetables and fish.
Convenient location, comfortable & spacious rooms
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and even managed to accommodate my multiple food allergies at breakfast. The standard of the hotel room was exceptional for the price. The huge pillow, but that is a problem at most hotels. Hopefully, they will one day realize that even people who don't sleep on their backs don't want to be reminded about their hotel night by a stiff, aching neck.
Staff were friendly, good breakfast, free wi-fi and free coffee cakes etc, a good place to stay
Great position, delightful owners but not a hotel - more a bed and breakfast (without the breakfast). Good position to attend meeting in a convention town short on hotel beds. Would have liked bathroom amenties (including hair dryer) and even cereal and coffee to start the day. No closet. Residential appartments upstairs seem to house elephants. All the signage refers to it being a "Pension" and that is what it is - Bookings.com should not refer to it as a "hotel".
Very good location. Room number 4 was great for 3 children.
Smelly bathroom , cleaning tools left in bath
They had turned the heat up to much... almost a sauna...
Central location and as I had a room at the back - very quiet. The price had been raised due to a big conference in town, so hence my comment about fair value for money. The room did not have a hair drier, maybe this could have been requested, but I had an early start and reception not open.
Location was excellent. Roomy room. nothing
good value for money. very good location considering the purpose of our visit to Gothenburg. quiet and nice neighborouhood.
