Fabulous 8.6 From 1,071 reviews

Hotel Poseidon, Gothenburg
Fabulous hotel in central Gothenburg
I was here for one night, and it was so nice to be in the city center and walking distance from everything. My room was facing the main street, and yet it was very quiet which was nice, and often difficult to find when having a front facing room. The staff was great, and as I arrived before check-in time they stored my luggage for me for the day. The bed was nice, and the room was spacious, especially compared to other hotels in Europe. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic! Wonderful selection of cold and hot food. They also have non-dairy options of milk and yogurt which I haven't seen in many other hotels. Highly suggest Hotel Poseidon!

All You Could Ask For
Hotel Poseidon has all you could ask for. It is centrally located with access to tram and bus service. It is in walking distance of area attractions. In addition to all this, the staff is very helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet is ample with selections for all. The hotel has a cozy feel to it and made us feel most comfortable.

Very Good8.0
Simple but nice clean rooms- definitely stay there
Nice family place, my room was a basic room with no fridge, but quiet clean and typical large Scandinavian breakfast. Saw several people in the hotel were business travelers, but some families with kids. Nice location, and definitely will stay there if I am in Gothenburg again. Friendly staff too.

Great staff, so many little nice touches -- fan in the room, blackout curtains, 24-hour fresh coffee available, nice little garden with comfortable lawn furniture to sit in, ... I highly recommend it.
