Its pretty far and the Trafic and trafic system building in Göteborg is one of the worst I have seen in Scandinavia. I thought Stockholm was Hell but this is worse... Back to Hotel 3 star as restaurant is 2 star as its kind of mix of Bistro and fancy restaurant but is neither. It falls in no category as prices and high as served restaurant but you have to order by counter and pick up your food like in Cheaper places. So? Also Minute Steak was one of worst I ever had. So their statement saying they serve best Ribassa here comes with lots of doubts...Should never say we have best...if you are not ready to follow it. Words are cheap... Young swedish Waitress was nice though points for him! Also staff at reception pretty nice. They holding this Scandic creed on place...I mean Sauna and Pool was not such great. Heater was some unknown brand not from Finland (I am from Finland and we know Heaters (Kiaus) and this one was lousy) and it did not warm the Sauna over 60 maybe 50 degree. It was warm room not Sauna. Ask finnish what is real Sauna they know... Also pool was overbooked and not really cozy to swim in small pool in heavy growd. I mean I was asked to book everything Pool, Breakfast etc. But I did not see any control about it??? So ..Improvement needed...then stars more... Answer to hotel reply : I can try your hotel again on my next trip as price is ok and its not your fault that Göteborg trafic is mess. Just fix your Sauna and also booking to pool and restaurant food quality then ok...

Excellent location with the city centre easy reachable by public transport. Friendly staff. Easy parking. Breakfast good with a lot of choice. One minor complaint is that our room was very warm and ventilation didn't seem to help.
