"Good Hotel for work trip"

4
13/08/2018

Stayed for 5 nights in August. base for our team as we installed a job 20 mins away. up early and back late every night. Good that we had the option of preparing simple food in our own rooms (not that we did) - plumped for the hotel bar menu which did the job and was actually pretty reasonable. Bar is only open till 10pm. food after 9pm is just pizzas which they make you eat in your room which is a bit odd. Breakfast served from 0700 is well done, coffee is nice and they provide take away cups if you want to get going with a brew. Staff are all amazing, keen and helpful. rooms are large, clean and functional. The wifi is good and strong with none of the usual bullchit.

Thank you so much for your review and the kind words regarding both the hotel itself and our staff! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay here and that you found the room to be suitable for your stay. It's great to have your own little kitchen even though you are staying in a hotel right? I agree, it sounds a bit odd that you had to have your pizza in your room. I will take a look at this, thank you for pointing this out. I hope you enjoyed the pizza even though you had it in your room! Thank you for staying here and once again, thank you for the kind words. Hope to see you here back in the future! /Alexandra, Hotel Mektagonen

Our room was spacious with a separate bedroom, bathroom with sauna and a living room area with a kitchenette.The hotel is quiet even if there are a construction area in the property next door. Breakfast is above average and the air condition is a big plus when the temperature is close to 30 degrees outside.

Clean big rooms. Good breakfast. Very child friendly hotel, even a playroom for the kids, My 1 year old son loved it. Short distance to Liseberg, You can walk. Grocery store next door. Parking in the hotel is locked, which is good because of a lot of burglary inn Gøteborg. I would stay here again

We had a wonderful time staying at this hotel and the rooms were very clean. Our housekeepers name was Deegii and I highly recommend her work and thank her very much as walking into the room gave the first impression this would be a great hotel. The reception staff were fantastic as well as the bar and restaurant people. Breakfast was also great. Thanks for making our stay very enjoyable

"Excellent room and hotel"

17/06/2018

Our room was spacious with a good-size kitchenette (including a fridge and microwave), bathroom and living room area. The bed was large and VERY comfortable, and the shower was amazing. Although our window faced the construction area, we never heard any construction noise in the evening or at night. The breakfast was included, and although I wasn't particularly fond of the eggs, there were more than enough choices to compensate for it. The staff was very helpful; they gave us directions for public transportation, and they booked a taxi for us the night before we checked out. Also, the hotel is conveniently located; it's just a five-minute tram ride to downtown, and you can buy bus/tram passes right at reception. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay there again if we ever have the pleasure of returning to Gothenburg.

...unless you like living in an industrial area with lots of construction going on all around the hotel. Unless you like a faceless building with mixed uses (Hotel, businesses, small clinic, to name but a few). The room was functional, not welcoming, and the bed reallyreally small (1,40) for two people. The cot we ordered wasn't there, and the cooking place didn't work. The windows were dirty. The “view” was on a car park, and the other wing of the building 15 meters away. So why 2 stars? The breakfast was nice, and the staff helpful (cot came within minutes, the cooking place was replaced quickly). Cannot recommend, sorry.

Thank you for your review and thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding your stay. I'm really sorry that you didn't have a good experience here due to the construction and I hope that we will get the chance to welcome you here again when the construction is done so that you can see the result. We're sorry you were unhappy with your stay - we'll work hard to fix the issues you experienced and mentioned. Thanks for letting us know. /Alexandra, Hotel Mektagonen

Booked a family room and had to pay extra to bring my family! I have never been greeted as rudely and coldly by hotel staff. The manager will definitely not be working when you ask for them- I can guarantee you that. Greeted coldly and rudely in front of family- be warned and explore other options.

HotelMektagonen, Informationsansvarig at Best Western Plus Hotel Mektagonen, responded to this review
Hi, I'm really sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your stay here. When you book a room at our hotel you can choose different types of rooms. Maybe there was a mistake when the booking was made because the room that you had booked was a single room and unfortunately we can't have an entire family in a single room.. I'm also really sorry to hear that you perceived our staff as rude - we usually get really positive feedback regarding our staff. We would love yo have you back to give you a better experience next time. Take care. /Alexandra, Hotel Mektagonen

The rooms are a mixture between hotel rooms and apartments. Spacious and equipped with a kitchenette. Very clean and equipped with most of the things you would need. However, the services are nothing special and I would expect a bit more from a 4 starts hotel with that price. For in stance, breakfast is poor.

18/12/2017

We stayed for a weekend at this nice hotell. Its lookated a little bit outside of downtown guthenburg but its so easy to take the tram that stops 200m from the reception. The room is very spacious with nice beds, a small kitchen area and a kichen table sitting 4 and a big refigurater. We stayed on 8th floor where we hade a nice terass. The breakfast buffe is big and delighius. We hade a nice afernoon in the bar and enjoyed happy houre with a nice lokal beer and a little buffe that was included. We tryed the restaurant next day and the food was excellent The tricky part was to find the reception if you park on the parking garage on second floor of the building. You have to take the elevator down and go to the reception. The hotell is located in abig building that holds a lot of different companys. You can offcourse drive directly to the reception and then park your car We hade a lovely weekend and we will definatly come back Recomend gutherburg year around

"Not upto the expectations"

3
26/11/2017

I stayed in this hotel for four weeks and it was a mixed experience. Let me first go to the positives: 1. Stayed in the 8th floor room with balcony. Really spacious room. Some of my colleagues stayed in the 4th floor which was just half of what it is in the 8th floor. 2. The kitchen here is really good with an induction stove and enough utensils for cooking. 3. The balcony is a nice high place to view the city. 4. Located very near to the tram station. Now, the negatives. 1. The internet here was a pain throughout the stay. We came here for a business trip and we had to work from hotel. But internet kept getting disconnected and it send a bad message when we are in online meetings. They accepted that there was an issue and then confirmed that it was solved but it never got resolved as the frequent disconnections continued. The password they gave is valid for a week. At the end of the third week, they gave the password for the fourth week without even knowing that they are giving already expired passwords. I had to come back to reception at least three times to get new passwords. Finally, the receptionist connected me to a different network which was faster but the disconnection problem was still there. 2. The breakfast was strictly european. I requested for at least 2 or 3 Indian dishes. Almost 15 Indians were staying in that hotel for at least 2 weeks and they didn't even consider offering a small Indian menu. In the days of Youtube where every dish can be seen from youtube and cooked, this was really inhospitable from their part. In India, most of the big hotels serve european breakfast and also make the Indian dishes less spicy for the sake of European guests. When I requested for some Indian dishes, they gave a terse negative response and said we have to live with fruits and egg. If you respond in such a way, I don't know what to say. 3. There was smart TV in one of the rooms in 8th floor but none of the other rooms has the smart TV. When you pay almost 12700 rupees per day, you could expect at least a smart TV in the rooms. 4. No swimming pool in this hotel. Overall, the presence of a kitchen was a soothing point for me because that gave me a chance to cook and eat whenever I felt home sick. The rooms and bed was nice but they could do a lot better particularly when they are charging rates of four star accomodation.

Comfortable and spacious room. Heating was unfortunately not working well during my stay, but staff offered to provide a portable heater. Although I didn't use it, the room also had a fully-equipped kitchen, which is handy if you're looking to stay for a few nights. Overall, a relatively comfortable stay, but not great value for money.

The hotel room was really spacious and equipped with kitchen accessories (incl. microwave and refrigerator). The bathroom was also spacious, clean and warm. There were lot of space to put your hygiene supplies. Breakfast was fairly typical. Nothing special to mention. There weren't gym in the hotel, but you could use the external gym in the same building at a discount. Basic ok hotel to stay. Probably at its best for families for longer stays.

Best hotel to stay in Goteborg. Coming here for 2 years now and havent found anything which can be complained about. The rooms are spacious. Breakfast is good. Most importantly, you feel at home when u interact with staff from reception and hotel. I have been regular visitor to Gothia Towers which is near by... that is good, but somehow it misses the connect to visitors. Its great with amazing bars and restaurant, but if u need to bring some needed solitude and still feel homely... this would be hotel i recommend. I had been here with my family as well, and my kids liked it.

This hotel is very recent and rooms are simply great. Very spacious, well equipped kitchen, large clean and modern bathroom (which is not often the case in Sweden), quiet. Clean and free laundry room. Good buffet breakfast. Nice and friendly staff. Location is good, few tram stops from downtown and close to Lisberg park. Unfortunately we chose the public parking lot next to hotel, recommended by the hotel staff for better cost over several days (parking is available in hotel but much more expensive). We had a vandalism act overnight on our rental car (one tire knife destroyed) which cost us money and half day to repair on a lovely day. So we do not recommend do use this parking, despite in general Sweden is a safe place. All together a very good experience and warmly recommended.

After staying in numerous so-so hotels across Sweden this looked like a 5 star hotel. Delicious breakfast with a wide array of food. Super friendly staff. Parking garage with a 1 time fee. Grocery on the same steps! Free washing machines (even though they were tiny). We had a patio with open doors and furniture. A kitchenette. A roomy bathroom. Even the couch sleeper was comfy! Only downside had to pay for a cheap tram ticket to get into town (but worth it because you can use it for site seeing) and there's a lot of construction going on. Highly recommend

Mektagonen is located between Gothenburg and Mölndal with direct access to Tram 2 and 4 which brings you to the city in a couple of minutes. The rooms as such are more apartments rather than "rooms". You have fully equipped kitchenette, eating table and additional sleeping couch. Restaurant experience was very good, breakfast is Swedish and European standard

"Definitely stay here if you are driving"

3
11/06/2017

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.

"Brilliant Location Large Rooms"

02/03/2017

we stayed here August 2015 for a few days to watch the Sheffield Steelers play ice hockey in Gothernberg. What an amazing hotel this was, the location is fab only a 2 minute walk from the tram into town. Lovely supermarket just underneath the hotel which sells everything you might want and a large supermarket across the road. Only a few minutes tram ride into the centre of town. The breakfast really surprised me as there was a huge choice of food and all tasted lovely. The room as large and have a kitchen area cooker fridge etc so if you want to cook and eat in you can no pronlems. The price was great for what we got. Reception staff very helpful. All in all i would recommend this hotel for the price and location and lovely facilities inside. Great holiday but unfortunately the Sheffield Steelers were no match for the Swedish Ice Hockey team. :)

"Off-centre but very convenient"

26/11/2016

We stayed at the Hotel Mektagonen for 4 nights including over a weekend when it is very busy with local people and groups of young people. Despite it being busy the service was excellent, rooms were spacious and quiet and the staff very helpful. As it is away from the City centre it is very competitively priced. Its location is actually very convenient as the tram stop is virtually outside the door and it is only a 10 minute ride into the Centre. This can be made virtually cost free if you buy a Goteborg Card which includes free public transport. Compared to City Centre hotels this is a very cheap hotel which is far better than you would expect. We would use it agaion if we went back. At the time of our visit there was a building site outside the front door, which meant a walk around 3 sides of the site but I would expect that the normal pedestrian path will be in use by 2017.

This hotel is great for people who want to be a bit independent as it has kitchenettes in the rooms with fridge, microwave, 2 ring cooker, sink, crockery and cutlery. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Staff were helpful. Breakfast was wonderful! The only downside just now is that there is building work going on just outside which made access slightly less easy than it might have been. However this wasn't a real inconvenience and I wouldn't let it put you off going there. In fact we plan to go with our daughter who uses a wheelchair at Easter next year. The disabled rooms are the best I've ever seen!

"Surprisingly good"

4
28/09/2016

Soon after I booked a stay at the Best Western Plus Hotel Mektagonen, I began to worry. It was some distance from downtown Gothenburg, and the surroundings were far from picturesque--parking lots, a construction site, not much more. When we arrived, my fears seemed justified: the taxi driver didn't know where it was, and thought we were nuts not to have booked a hotel downtown. But Mektagonen is actually a good and convenient spot for a stay in Gothenburg. First the downside: A big construction site right outside the front door. The hotel's in a building shared with a number of businesses, and it's a hike from the front desk to the hotel rooms. The restaurant has a very limited dinner menu (hamburgers, chicken Caesars, pizza). And no other restaurants are available for blocks around. Even so, you get a spacious room with a kitchenette and a good bathroom. The view may be just a parking lot, but the room is quiet. Right next door to the hotel is a Willys supermarket, where you can build your own Caesar salad for very little and enjoy it in your room. The hotel's breakfast is far better than its dinner. It includes the usual Scandinavian cheeses and cold cuts and fish, plus waffles, cereals, fruit, squeeze-it-yourself orange juice, scrambled eggs, bacon, and so on. The coffee is good. While you eat, you can watch the construction crew building the huge apartment complex and the commuters passing by via bikes, cars, and trams. It's a bit of a walk around the construction site to reach the tram stop, but the front desk can sell you a one-day or three-day pass and you'll be downtown before you know it. Once there, it's easy to get around; we went out to the ferry terminal for the Gothenburg archipelago and spent a pleasant time on Styro, one of the islands where cars are forbidden. People get around by bike and golf cart, or just walking. We also used transit to get to the Gothenburg Botanical Garden, but beware: the Garden stop is across a busy highway from the Garden itself, and you should plan on a longish walk to the nearest overpass and then more walking to the entrance. It's a gorgeous garden and the cafe serves a good lunch, but if you have mobility issues you may not have the time or energy for a proper tour of the Garden. Getting back to the tram stop means another long walk. As we went in and out of downtown Gothenburg, the downtown hotels looked less and less attractive. Once back at Mektagonen, we could relax, enjoy our improvised Caesar salads, and relax. So while the hotel is clearly intended for a business clientele, even elderly tourists like my wife and me can enjoy it as a comfortable base from which to explore an interesting Swedish city.

"Nice Hotel, A Little Tricky to Reach with Construction"

5
11/09/2016

We'd have appreciated specific directions from the hotel about how to enter, considering that the usual entrance is blocked by a big construction project. They sent a pre-stay email, and could easily have added this information and saved us a lot of frustration. There is no extra signage outside, explaining that it is necessary to walk all the way around a huge block. It is not a big deal if you know, but it was not fun making wrong turns while hauling luggage. We arrived on the tram and could not figure it out. The hotel shares a big office complex with several companies and a big gym. Someone at the gym let us in the back door. Once checked in, we liked everything about the hotel. Our room was large and modern with everything we could want. Although the hotel was fully booked on the weekend, we never heard a sound from other guests. We were surprised to find a huge breakfast room full of people including lots of children. Breakfast buffet was excellent and efficient even with quite a large crowd. Staff were so pleasant and helpful. The tram was very convenient and frequent, only 3-4 short stops from Central Station. A very nice stay.

I read elsewhere a review that spoke of the breakfast at this hotel as not that great but we found it to be excellent. They had a wide variety of food. Our room was large with a VERY large shower and it was quiet. Right beside the Hotel is a small grocery store which is convenient for fixing a quick meal in your room which has a small kitchenette. They had a laundry down the hall that could be used and it was on the light rail line that takes you into the central city in only a few minutes. I would definitely stay there again!

Stayed for 3 nights with a friend. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Room was large with a mini kitchen, dining area and sofa. Bathroom was clean with a lovely shower. Hotel extremely close to 2 tram stops which get you to the center of Gothenburg within 10 minutes, however it is also a very doable walk. Breakfast is included with lots of choice of a full range of traditional Swedish food. A supermarket is next door which is handy if you plan to use the fully equipped kitchen in the room! Overall great stay and would definitely recommend to all.

"Functional Hotel and good value"

02/09/2016

I stayed here for a few nights while I was visiting a client and had a positive experience. There are a lot of roadworks going on near the hotel so getting there from the tram stop can be a little confusing. But the hotel is very close to the tram stop which is great for getting in to the city as it is a little out of town. My room was big and clean. It is an unusual set up as I think there are offices in the same building but the service was still excellent, and the breakfast was great. All in all it was a good stay. The location worked for me, but may not for everyone.

"Superb room and decent location"

4
29/08/2016

The hotel is nothing special to look at and has a big building site next door to it making the walk from the tram stop a bit of a trek however once inside the hotel is modern, large and welcoming. Our room was large and spacious, with a small kitchenette area and decent sized bathroom. The sofa turned into a bed for our 5 year old and we had a very good stay here for 2 nights. The room was quiet with no noise at night which is a must for me and we had two good nights sleep. We had a small problem with the alarm going off in the room safe however this was rectified by a helpful member of the hotel staff promptly. Breakfast was a bit of a canteen style affair, the usual breakfast pieces you would expect when staying in Sweden nothing spectacular but somewhere you can get some toast and cereal. Location was decent despite the building works, tram quickly takes you where you want to go and was conveniently situated for our trip to Liseberg and The Universeum (both must do's in Gothenburg if you have kids) Overall I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when visiting Gothenburg.

27/08/2016

An OK hotel, nice clean room and pleasant staff. Breakfast was classic Swedish but I'm not into eating fish heads or drinking yaks milk. Very close to the city centre and ample parking. Reasonable price which is pretty fair for a country as expensive as Sweden. Not far from the airport which was a bid plus.

"Probably the largest rooms among Goteborg hotels"

4
27/08/2016

Yes.. I am not joking, have seen quite a few hotels in Goteborg and I must say Best Western PLUS is actually a big PLUS in terms of room size. I had a very comfortable stay, didn't feel like I was staying in a cramped hotel room. Pros- 1. Kitchenette in the rooms, very convenient for a family, especially with a kid. 2. Super convenient location- Very close to the tourists attractions 3. Tram stop is right next door 4. A hypermart is right across the road and Willys is on the ground floor- makes it super convenient to buy your daily stuffs 5. Free laundry machines on two floors (OMG !!! can you believe it !!) Cons- Couldn't find any major negative. Only thing that is noticeable is the bland lobby. That's probably because its housed in an office building.

"Very Conveniant!"

20/08/2016

Travelling as a couple with a teenager our one bedroom suite was super convenient. Black out curtains kept the room dark at night. Room was quiet. Bathroom was spacious, clean and well equipped. There was a little kitchenette but we didn't get a chance to use it. Being allergy sufferers we appreciated the hard floors. The breakfast was excellent and catered to a large variety of tastes and needs from a more North American scrambled eggs and bacon to cold cuts, yogurt, breads... We had dietary issues (celiac and lactose intolerance as well as allergies) but we all ate well. There was a separate section of GF breads and cereal (with ingredients) as well as lactose free dairy products. The breakfast being included added a lot to the value of the stay. I found the staff very helpful with tips on getting around on the tram. While the hotel is not right downtown, it is right on a tram line. In minutes a person can be downtown. We went out to the Southern Archipelago right from the hotel on the tram and ferry. It was very easy. I would highly recommend this hotel and will be staying there the next time I am in Göteborg!

"Don't be fooled by the exterior!"

16/08/2016

This hotel is part of an office block with a supermarket on its lowest floor, however once inside we were greeted by very helpful, friendly receptionists who were able to provide advice regarding tourist sites (get a Gothenburg City Card if you're here any duration). The BBQ Steakhouse within has quite a limited range of dishes including pizzas, but reasonably priced and tasty, and served in a timely manner. Breakfast is a large Continental buffet with plenty of choice and clear indications as to what different products are in Swedish and English. Parking is available in a protected area beneath the hotel at 145 SEK per day but there are excellent bus and tram links so once parked it is unlikely to move until time to go home.

"Large rooms, pet friendly hotel"

15/08/2016

My husband and I and our dog, Harley stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The staff is very service oriented, the room was large (approx 30 square meters), quiet as we requested, very clean, and came with a spacious bathroom and well equipped mini kitchen. A supermarket is next to the hotel. Breakfast with large selection of cold cuts, scrambled eggs, fruit, fresh pressed orange juice etc.. is included in the price. Parking is 145 SEK/night and for those who travel with pets, there is an additional fee of 250 SEK/night and per pet, which is what most pet friendly hotels in Sweden charge. Overall, a very pleasant stay and we would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone who travels in business/leisure.

Visited as part of a trip to liseberg - hotel has good tram links despite liseberg being about a 15-20 mins walk. Hotel was clean and staff were friendly.

07/08/2016

Hotel is located near Liseberg, ca. 10 minutes by working. Room is spacious with mini kitchen and dining table for 4 prs. Car parking just next to the hotel, 145 kr per day. Goodbreakfast, this time they had fresh juice corner where guest can make their own juice, orange or grapefruit. Convenient for those who want to have option for making some food by themselves instead of dining outside. Always good to be back here. Ongoing construction of housing blocks just front of the hotell, however, did not notice any particular noise during our stay at this time. Housekeeping staffs seemed to be busy, they forgot to refill the necessities at the bathroom.

"A Jewel Located in an Office Building"

5
26/07/2016

What a fabulous hotel! Don't be fooled by its quite unattractive outside. The inside is amazing! We were visiting friends in Gothenburg and I found this jewel based of the reviews on TripAdvisor. When we arrived I was rather shocked by the outside. It looks very much like an office building from the 1970s. The picture on Best Western's website was obviously done by a professional and shows just a small portion of the building. However, don't let that stop you! When you walk in to the reception area, it's like you stepped in to another world. Very elegant and the staff was quite friendly and helpful. Our room (#519) was modern, spacious, quiet and just lovely. There is a kitchenette where you can prepare meals. It has a small cooktop, sink and utensils/cups/glasses are provided in the cabinets. There is a small refrigerator for food and drinks. The sitting area was also quite spacious. With a table and 4 chairs and a small sofa with coffee table. The bathroom was very big with a shelf for my “beauty box”. The lights dimmed in the bathroom which made those middle of the night runs less painful on the eye. The shower was quite large. The one complaint (and it's minor) was that the hand-held shower head did not fit properly in the holder and there was not a stable place to put shampoo, etc. Towels were big, white and fluffy and there was even a towel warmer in the bathroom. Black-out curtains kept out the perpetual Swedish summer sun. The hotel is in an area with office buildings on one side and a nice residential area on the other. It seemed quite safe. I saw people out walking to get to the streetcar which was just around the corner. It's quite convenient for going into the city. It's located a little way out from Gothenburg's old town and tourist area. The hotel is located IN a business building. I'm not quite sure how all that works but I think there are three connected towers. Parking was easy although they did charge extra (145 SEK per night, about $17.00). The lot is located in the building and is gated. The access entrance to the hotel (not the main entrance) was quite convenient to the parking lot. This seems to be more of a business hotel than tourist hotel, but it was a wonderful retreat at the end of a busy sightseeing day. It is air conditioned and it worked well and quietly. Our room and the hotel in general was very quiet (we were there on a weekend). Breakfast was truly amazing. It was more than anyone could ask for. They even had a station where you could squeeze your own fresh orange juice. In addition to cold cuts, cheeses, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, cooked eggs, vegetables, pastries, juices, breads, cereals, yogurt, and so much more, there was a waffle bar with berry toppings. Breakfast was a real treat! On the main entrance side of the building there is a big construction site. I believe they are building condos or apartments. We heard NO NOISE…but we were there on a weekend and our room faced the inside next to one of the towers of offices. We had a view of the offices next door, but I didn't care, we were out of the room during the day anyway. I'd be sure to check on the noise level if you plan to stay during the week and you are a late sleeper. Additionally, right next to the hotel entrance is a WILLY:S discount grocery store where you can stock up on snacks and drinks. We bought cold cuts and bread to enjoy a light dinner both nights. Overall, I was sad when we had to leave. I wanted to stay longer and explore the city more. I think this is a perfect place to stay when visiting Gothenburg and I truly look forward to returning. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

In the mean time it is not the greatest view, but there is no noise since the hotel rooms is on the other side from the constructions. I hope you will have a good summer!

Stay one night at Best Western Mektagonen and we are so satisfied with our choice to stay at this hotel. Our room came with sofa bed which makes our sleep is so comfortable. The kitchenette also help us to cook rice for our son. The location is a bit far from center but the tram stop is just 50m from the hotel. Willy supermarket is helpful for hotel guest to find anything for their stay. The location is perfect for family who want to enjoy Liseberg as it is only 3minutes by tram to Liseberg. The only downside is the breakfast choice is limited for us. Overall we are happy and laundry room help us to wash our clothes.

The breakfast spread is pretty good with cold cuts, various types of milk and cereals and even freshly squeezed orange juice. The front desk staff was very courteous and friendly. Good connectivity with the free WIFI. The hotel is located about 10 minutes drive from Gothenburg center so bear this in mind if you're not driving.

"Sauna in the room!"

31/03/2016

Had a family suit. The twin beds in master bedroom drifted apart. The bed sofa was a little too narrow for both children our son thought, perhaps 140 cms. Although the trafic noise was next to zero because of Easter holiday, the apartment noise was annoying, perhaps fridge or airconditioner? I had to sleep with ear plugs, but the rest of the family slept well. You can easily spend a week here. There is fridge with a freezer compartment, and even a dishwasher! The main reason we wanted this room though is the sauna. Wonderful! Hotel restaurant was noisy because of all the children families. I recommend the restaurant if you have children, but not as a nice dinner. Food was good, drinks were plenty to choose from. Breakfast was ok, nothing out of the ordinary, except you could make your own fresh orange juice! Dangerous if you are allergic to citrus... You could also make your own waffles, as you can in many Swedish hotels nowadays.

The service, especially Amanda, and the hotel itself was great. Breakfast was very nice with little extras like do-it-yourself fresh orange or grapefruit juice. The room was very roomy and comfortable and they have a nice sauna (that no one seems to know about). The room is set up for a long stay with a full kitchenette and they even have a laundry room for the use of guests (which came in handy because my stay was longer than expected and I was running out of clean clothes). The building houses several companies with the hotel rooms in one wing - you'll want to ask for a room with a city view on an upper floor - otherwise you'll be looking at the other part of the building. The location is actually a little bit outside of the city, but very close to a tram stop so it's easy to get around. If you're driving, it is closer to the airport but if you don't have a car you would have to take the tram into the city and transfer to the bus or train there.

The hotel was a way from the city centre. However as the tram was outside of the hotel very quick and easy to get to the centre in about 10 mins. The breakfast wasn't good. Very cold even though getting there when opened didn't make any difference. I did like the freshly squeezed orange juice that you did yourself. The staff were helpful. The room was very nice with the kitchenette added. There wasn't much showergel in the shower even though we did get the room cleaned. On the whole a pleasant stay

I stay at this hotel quite often in relation to work. I like this hotel, even if it is not in the city center of Gotheburg more in an office area, but it is easy to take public transport (10 minutes) or walk to the city center. Easy parking if you come by car. Nice rooms/apartments with cooking possibilities. Very nice and helpful staff in the reception. Nice small eating places nearby and a gosseryshop in the same building as the hotel. Also restaurant and a bar in the hotel.

The Hotel Mettagonen is not a luxury landmark hotel. It is actually better than that - it gets it right in all the key areas and means that it is my hotel of choice. Here are some examples;- Nice staff - I've been twice - equally good both times Wifi - Signal actually strong in your room and fast. Watched English TV over tablet - without buffering or stopping Cooking facilities - modern, clean and good Room & beds - clean and comfortable Breakfast - Good variety - tasty food Frankly I can't fault this Hotel - it's not in the centre but close to tram tracks - and good (chargeable) parking facilities. So next time I'm in Gothenburg, I will be back!

I have stayed here on my business trips to Gothenburg for over 2 years now averaging 9 -10 nights a month. The reception, bar and restaurant staff are incredibly friendly and a good laugh. Location is excellent for access to city center by tram, Liseberg amusement park is just next door and some great walks in the forest above Mölndal. Restaurant food could be improved as well as a bigger choice from a very restricted menu.

"Nice hotel with large rooms"

16/11/2015

The Mektagonen hotel is a good choice for families on a Budget, as each room comfortable sleeps a family of four. The hotel is located in a slightly drab part of town (industry, supermarkets, office Blocks, etc) - but it's nice and quiet. Parking is also good. The staff is very welcoming and friendly; the breakfast buffet is excellent. Rooms are big and spacious, with a small kitchenette where you can prepare your own meals. Perfect for families that do not want to - or cannot afford to - eat all their meals out. With a supermarket next door, organizing your own meals is easy. In addition, the hotel has laundry facilities for guest use. Thumbs up for that! One of the best features of this hotel is the tram stop right outside the hotel. The trams depart every 5-10 minutes, and will take you straight to the amusement park Liseberg and downtown in minutes. Very convenient. Tickets can be bought in the hotel reception. I've stayed at the Mektagonen several times, mostly because of the convenient parking and the large rooms. It's not for hip urbanites who want a buzzing streetlife right outside the hotel, but very suitable for families and other travellers who want a convenient place to stay i Gothenburg.

"boring location but easy acces to city center"

This hotel is located a bit outside the city center near to some industrial buildings and at walking distance from tramway. Within 10 minutes you are in the center of the city with the tramway. The bed was great ! the room was big with kitchen and table for 4. The breakfast was okay but a bit "sad" and "boring". The staff was great and helpfull. As this hotel is part of a buiolding with other facilities and companies it's a bit strange and misses a certain soul but in general it was fine.

If you want a spacious room, and a good view and kitchen , you can't beet this hotel in Gothenburg Sweden.. The staff are friendly , especially Erica, They work hard to make it happen for you . Stayed there for last 5 weeks in Sept/Oct 2015. Only challenge is , not much restaurants around the corner. But if you are going to cook yourselves , there is a good groceries stores ( Willis) next door. Great place indeed.

"Large rooms"

11/10/2015

New hotel with very large rooms. A small kitchen and refrigiator is a big plus. Large beds 105 cm pr bed and a large terasse, overlooking Liseberg and that area. But the hotel certainly lack charm. Its an office building in a very uncharming area, a bit outside of town. Yes its only 7 stop to the city center by tram, but there isnt any city life near the hotel. View is great and the room also, but the atmosphere around is a bit dull. If you need to cook food yourself, there is a gigantic Maxi on the other side of the road. Rooms are all quiet, no noise from roads or highway, although very close to the hote, and the hotel is easily accessed if you travel by car. So if you like city life next door this isnt the hotel for you, but if you like a quiet place to sleep, easy access by car and if you bring your kids (rooms have a sofabed), this is the place for you.

Simple but adequate and clean accommodation. Located out of town but serviced by a regular tram. Buffet breakfast has a good selection. Would recommend if you are looking for simple but good value accommodation in expensive Gothenburg.

"Spacious room and friendly staff"

The hotel is connected to an office building, so it is very quiet at night. Very convenient as it is next to a grocery store. Staff is very helpful as I accidentally broke a glass in the room and they helped to clean up properly. Breakfast is of good choice although you have to squeeze your own fresh orange juice. Room is spacious and shower is the best amongst all hotels and apartments that we stayed in Sweden and Norway. Overall, great place, reasonably priced for short stay.

Very nice hotel located not far away from Liseberg. I recommend this for families. The atmosphere is not like a hotel because it is located in an office building, but it is worth to give a try. Very good parking in the same building.

"Great Hotel"

One of the ugliest hotels I have stayed in but for a reasonably priced city hotel with huge and comfortable rooms who cares? The tram stop was just outside which gave us access to everything and we throughly enjoyed our stay. To warn travellers the pillows in Sweden are awful, small and very firm, this was the same in every place we stayed.

We stayed at this hotel 3 years ago and again last week. It is a great hotel, very clean, spacious rooms. It is conveniently located next to the train so easy to get around Gothenburg. It is reasonably priced and has great wifi and a great breakfast.
