This hotel may not be the best hotel, it has an average breakfast, and was at times quite noisy due to a group of other guests, but it perfectly suited our needs as travelers driving around Scandinavia. The best part of the hotel was the free use of their guest washers and dryers on the fourth and sixth floors. There is a sign-up sheet for the dates and times you want to use the machines. We found they were often simply used on a first-come, first-served basis. You will need to use your own laundry soap, but you can easily find some very inexpensive laundry supplies at the Willy's supermarket on the ground level of the hotel complex, amongst other businesses. You could also buy the soap from the hotel. The room was fairly spacious and had a small kitchenette with a stovetop, microwave, refrigerator, cooking & eating utensils, pots & pans, dishes, and cups. (Keep in mind that you have to do your own dishes, or pay about US$25 for the hotel to do them, but they provide dish soap and other cleaning supplies.) We found Willy's to be a very nice grocery store with reasonable prices and shopped there for a few meals in the room. The hotel has an on-site secured (at night) parking garage at a cost of SEK 145 per day. (Note that the city of Gothenburg charges variable prices for street and parking-lot parking, so bring a credit card and/or coins if you drive. The Parkopedia app was very useful to compare pricing.) The fitness center is a separate business at the site, for which the hotel will sell you discounted passes. We did not use the fitness center. I can't remember the price, but we thought it was a little expensive. We got fresh towels and toiletries refilled every day. Our sheets were only changed once during our four-night stay. The breakfast was very basic, but they did have a non-dairy section and an orange- and grapefruit-juicing station. This is also a cashless hotel. less
