About Scandic Opalen, Gothenburg

Contemporary hotel with free breakfast, close to Götaplatsen

Short walk to Liseberg

Scandic Opalen is just south of Gothenburg's city center, 5 minutes' walk from the massive sports and events stadium Scandinavium. It's a 10-minute stroll to the Liseberg amusement park, featuring roller coasters, a log flume ride, colorful gardens, and live entertainment.

Picasso and Poseidon

It's a 10-minute walk to Gothenburg Museum of Art, where the collection includes works by Picasso, Monet, and Rembrandt. The museum is on Götaplatsen square, where you'll also find the Concert Hall, the City Theater, and a statue of Poseidon that's a symbol of Gothenburg.

Free buffet breakfast

The hotel offers a free buffet breakfast, and the restaurant also serves lunch and dinner most days, with a children's menu created by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. There's a children's play area too, and grown-ups have a fitness room, sauna, hot tub, and solarium.

Bright rooms, free WiFi

Bright, airy, and smoke-free, the 354 guestrooms come with free WiFi, flat-screen TVs with movie channels, and convenient tea/coffee-making facilities. If you opt for a Superior Room, you'll get upper-floor accommodations with panoramic city views from big windows.
