Stayed on floor 17 with a great view over Gothenburg. Service was great and the facilities were of a very high standard, with free baggage holding and several restaurants. Close proximity to Liseberg was an added bonus and access via tram to the city center was easy with Korsvagen just outside!
The Clarion Post is within 5 minutes of bus and train stations. It is a most impressive building, and beautiful inside. Reception gave us clear instructions about how things work. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the WiFi easy to access. Unfortunately it was the midsummer bank holiday, so very little was open. The Saluhallen market was closed, and the Haga old town so deserted that it looked like a Hollywood film set. However the botanical gardens were open, and they were lovely, including the most amazing collection of succulents I've ever seen - better even than Kew, I reckon. Sadly the hotel's sumptuous main restaurant was also closed, but we had a very nice meal in the outside restaurant (thankfully it was warm). This would be a great place to stay on any other day.

We went to Gothenburg for four days and booked the Radisson Blu Riverside hotel mainly because of the reviews that we had read on Expedia. Having now stayed there, I can confirm that those reviews are accurate.
We thoroughly enjoyed the City and the hotel was very nice. It is clean, modern, the staff are ultra-helpful and the buffet breakfast is excellent and extensive.
The hotel is located on the other side of the river from the main city (which is where tourists would want to visit) and is located in a science (business) park BUT we actually liked where it was located. By far the best way to get to the hotel is by the ferry that runs from down near the Stenna line - which is free to use when the green flag is flying on the boat (which is during the daytime, I think). You need to get the ferry to Linholmspiren. Alternatively, you can get a No.16 bus from near Nils Ericsson bus terminal (at the bus stops across the road) which drops you about 100m from the hotel.
We loved getting the ferry.
The standard rooms in the hotel are quite compact but this wasn't a problem to us, as they are modern, clean, well soundproofed and have great showers.

"Very clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff"
Although this is a very large hotel, each guest was treated very well by the reception staff and others. The corridors looked sterile, but hid a very well set out room with adequate room for sleeping, and a fantastic shower! The hotel had a large group of school children as well as a conference, but still managed to keep the breakfast buffet well stocked with food for every taste and catered well for those with lactose and gluten allergies. Well located near the railway station, we enjoyed this hotel very much.
