Memorable stay in Gothenburg

The hotel was well located with some nice restaurants around. The hotel staff was very accommodating, warm, and helpful. The room was cozy with comfy beds. Love the stay!

A special visit!

I do not often write reviews, but my stay at Hotel Riverton was special. Three things really stood out. The friendly reception, the spa , and the top-floor restaurant with a sunset and view over the harbor that is difficult to do justice. I’ll be back!

Sea and harbour, Gothenburg

@hotelriverton you feel the personal touch in all interiors. No wonder, since it’s family owned all all attention is in the details. Plus location is just wonderful if you feel like seeing the sea, harbour and iconic ”lyftkranar” loved by all locals. Having dinner in restaurant View is both a gourmet experience and also adds to the navy feel of Gothenburg. 360° guaranteed.
