If you want somewhere that's value for money, well situated, clean and comfortable this is the place! Very ice, would stay again. The room we had was by the road and we did hear revellers returning but it wasn't too bad. Gothenburg was a great city.

If you're after value for money (and in Scandinavia that's not always easy!) and a central location then you can't go far wrong with the Vanilla. As others have said, probably the worst aspect is climbing up the spiral staircase for 2 or 3 flights with your luggage but after that it gets a lot better. We checked in after...

Arrived here via motorbike ( parking bays on street, very handy!) booked the last available room, small double. What a pleasant surprise, receptionist was friendly, welcome boxes of branded 'Vanilla' raisins is a nice healthy touch! Rooms are up winding concrete stairs in a lovely old building. Elemis toiletries in the room was very unexpected! Lovely courtyard for a bite...

A reallly lovely hotel in an excellent location for access to all of Gothenburg. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beds wonderfully comfortable. I wished I could bring the bed home with me. This was the best breakfast we had in all of our 10 days (5 hotels) in Sweden. The little cafe is also excellent, and as...

We very recently spent two nights at the Hotel Vanilla, and our overall experience was excellent. Had the 'snafu' not occurred, it would have been easy to give this hotel a 5 star rating. The location is excellent, and comfort and cleanliness are superior to most hotels in this category. However, all was not perfect, and based on prior reviews,...

Great location - close to shops and sights but still quiet. Good breakfast. Nice courtyard to sit in. Helpful reception - nothing was too much for them. All in all - good value. Would definitely be happy to stay there again.

I stayed here for three nights when visiting friends in Gothenburg. I have stayed in Gothenburg before and wanted somewhere less ‘clinical’ more ‘homely’, I found it. It is central (15 minutes’ walk to anywhere in the city). Located I the older part of the city everything is on your door step (10 minutes’ walk from Central Train Station). The...

First, the hotel can be a little hard to find, especially when arriving by car, since Gothenburg has a lot of one way streets and generally is a confusing city to drive around. The hotel has a few parking spots on property, these can be reserved in advance. We had not, as we though it was first come, first served,...

A lovely small hotel in the center of town. We were able to walk and explore the city and come back to clean and comfortable rooms. Immaculate bathrooms. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The breakfasts in the cafe were generous with a wide array food that was freshly prepared and delicious. Only drawback was nighttime noise from the...
