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! Collapse

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.

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. Collapse

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! Collapse

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.
