As part of our ambition to always exceed our guests' expectations, we at Hotel Riverton are currently undergoing an exciting transformation of our hotel. The project will involve our public areas, banquet restaurant and conference and event facilities. In addition, we will get 30 new hotel rooms, penthouse suites and a brand new spa & gym which will give our guests a fantastic experience.
The refurbishment project will be taking place in stages between January - December 2019, to minimize the impact of our guests during the project. Below you will see everything that will be transformed in 2019;
Refurbishment of our conference and event facilities
An additional 26 new hotel rooms and 4 Penthouse Suites
Expansion and renovation of hotel lobby
A brand new Spa & Gym on the ground floor
Renovation and expansion of breakfast restaurant & banquet dining room
This page will be updated continuously during the construction process so please check back to follow the transformation!
Our largest event space that can host up to 300 delegates and our conference lobby are now closed for a complete renovation. We have a new temporary entrance for our conference guests that are located in the building next to our main entrance on Stora Badhusgatan 28. The temporary entrance is staffed and open from 7 am on weekdays.

On February 18th, our Relaxation area with a whirlpool and saunas will be closed for renovation but the Gym located on the second floor will be open as usual. Our brand new Spa & Gym will be ready for all of our guests to enjoy in winter 2019!
We have now started with the renovation of our breakfast and banquet dining room on the 1st floor. In the meantime, breakfast will be served in our restaurant, View Skybar & Restaurant, on the 12th floor. As our breakfast is well-visited during weekends and holiday periods, we recommend an earlier breakfast between 07:00 - 08:30 AM for the best experience.
The restaurant is expected to open again in October this year and will be a fantastic function room with a capacity for up to 250 seated guests.
Our Conference department is now closed for a full renovation and we will spend the summer improving the experience in all our meeting rooms and will be ready to welcome our conference guests in September 2019. The largest conference/function room, the Congress, and the breakfast and event restaurant on the same floor are still undergoing a transformation and will be available for guests to enjoy towards the end of October this year.
During the summer months, the work with transforming our Reception and lobby will continue and guests for the hotel and restaurant will continue to use our temporary entrance on Stora Badhusgatan 26. The wellness area is still closed but the gym on the second floor will still be available for hotel guests to use.
We have now started the work on laying new flooring in the staircase and entrance of Stora Badhusgatan 28. This entrance is manily used by our apartment and conference guests and is expected to be completed in September 2019.
We will be renovating our main hotel entrance and reception from 21st of August until the end of the year. During this period, we will have a temporary Reception for check-in to our hotel rooms on the 1st floor which is reached via a staircase on the outside of the building from the street level. While the work is underway, our hotel entrance is unfortunately not adapted for wheelchair accessibility. We hope for your understanding and ask you to contact us if you have any questions regarding upcoming reservations.
The building is taking shape.
Our new conference rooms are now furnished and ready to welcome you back after renovating all the areas during the summer. We’ve added new floors, painted and wallpapered the walls, installed new technology and renovated all the toilets. We have changed the layout of one of our popular rooms so that it can be used for different types of events from meetings, seminars or mingles and even yoga. The room has large lovely windows and patio doors out to our mingle courtyard on warmer days.
Our new Congress Hall is just getting its new floors and wallpaper and will open up 21st of October. Then with new technology, furniture and that it is integrated with folding wall next to our new Restaurant ONE. Here you will be able to order great food for up to 250 people in a lovely restaurant environment with entertainment, dance and mingle on the same floor. Our newly built kitchen will also open at the same time as Restaurant ONE and the Congress Hall. Contact us and we will be happy to tell you more.
The windows of the new extension have been taking place and work on setting a beautiful stone façade is starting as well as the interior work to create the lovely 19 new rooms that we will be able to enjoy at the end of December/January.
When we found a completely untouched last part of the "Bastion" during our rebuilding process, where we are building a new spa and gym, and due to that the entrance and conference lobby have been a little delayed, but we will be able to welcome you in early December with a warming fire and a whole new lobby bar with lovely seating areas and a brand new reception. Existing gym is still running until the new one is ready.
Our temporary entrance and reception are located on the stone stairs next to our previous entrance, here you are welcomed by our lovely staff during check-in and check-out times to guide and assist you.
