Södra hamngatan 2, Gothenburg, 411 06, Sweden
This hotel is basic but cheap and just in downtown.Near Central Station and Nordan.
The breakfast (work days) is at Hotel Palace in the same building,an old palace.
It culd be something noisy because the trams are running every minute or less since half past five in the morning up to midnight.
The cheapest room has only bassin.

I stayed at Hotel Robinson for one night when going to a party, on a weekend where there were a lot of big events going on and they were the cheapest option at the time.
We liked the courteous communications we had via mail with the reception/reservation staff, while making sure that the price they offered us included what we needed.
Unique Quality: The location is very good: walking distance from the central station, the bus terminal where the airport coaches begin and end their journey and from Brunnsparken, where you can take trams and buses to pretty much everywhere in Gothenburg. Also very close to the mall Nordstan, in case you wanna do some shopping, and Avenyn for dining, bars and people watching.
We paid 895 SEK for a double room with ensuite toilet (but communal showers), with taxes and breakfast buffet included. Note tho that the rooms that have a window toward the street might have a traffic noise problem so bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper.
Directions: About 5 minutes from the Central Station and about 2 minutes from Brunnsparken.

Christmas buffet and what to do?
Hi there, I will be in Goteborg for Christmas and New year. I wonder where I can have those traditional Swedish Christmas buffet? Anywhere you can recommend? Not so expensive please...
And is there any short trips (1 or 2 days) outside town I should go for a visit? Or just can you give me some suggestions in what to do during my two weeks in Goteborg? People have suggested me to go to Copenhagen as it is very close, is it so?
Thanks very much for your suggestions.
Re: Christmas buffet and what to do?
If you're still surfing whilst there, I can recommend a daytrip to the island of Marstrand (bus from the Nils Ericson bus station by the Central station) or to the wooden town of Kungälv with its huge fortress (which I don't know the opening hours of in winter but it's impressive from the outside too). You can also go to the archipelago. Either Hönö in the north (bus from that same bus station) or take the tram to Saltholmen and catch a boat from there.
Copenhagen is a bit less than 3 hours away on the train. Longer by bus.
Travel Tips for Göteborg
I assume this wall mural was maybe in recognition of Goteburg playing host to the World Athletic Championships, I think it was in 1995 but could be wrong. I remember watching at home when Jonathon Edwards broke the triple jump world record & the 18 metre barrier!
Anyway there was a stadium just up the road from where I saw this so maybe that was where they were held.
I just have a thing for wall murals though!
In Göteborg it is possible to enjoy small town atmosphere, green woods and salty waters without having to travel far. The lively old working class quarters Haga a five minute walk from the city centre, takes the visitor right back to the old times, with its picturesque surroundings. The service is personal in the small antique shops and cafés.
There are many small, good restaurants with everything from good old home cooking to exotic food. Göteborg is also famous for its small cosy cafes.
The Art Of Fika 101
Pay attention young Grasshopper, it's really quite simple:
When the clock strikes 3:00, take the hand of your favorite coffee-companion and head out to your favorite café.
Quietly enter, stake your claim to a table then while standing in line, tease your soul by perusing the display case of tasty delights. When the young woman behind the counter asks what you two have selected, tell her in a calm voice and watch as she gently removes your treats from the shelf and places them on your tray, but don't touch them yet. Even though they sing the Siren's song to you, without a coffee (or Chai Tea) they're simply not ready to be devoured. Now, pay the young woman, lift your tray and take it to the table where your famished Fika-friend awaits your arrival.
Sit down and gently place each item in their appropriate spot, look into the eyes of your patient partner and begin your Fika!
"Fika" is simply the term for coffee-break but here in Göteborg it takes on a whole new, almost religious, meaning. It's an experience everyone should have and Brogyllens on Södra Hamngatan is a wonderful place to have it.
This is definately one of the sailing centres in Scandinavia and it shows. Stinking rich people have huge yachts in Långedrag along tram line 11 where the Royal Yacht Club is, and the not so stinking rich who just put everything they own into sailing have their boats just about anywhere else. There are often regattas going on and if you're more into big things, the Cutty Sark Tall Ships race has been in the city several times for one leg or other. A nice way to see yachting life is to make a trip to Marstrand in the archipelago.
Ramberget (the frame mountain)
Ramberget is a "mountain" on Hisingen in the northern part of Gothenburg. The mountain and the park around it is called Keillers Park (you can read about that in another tips from me). The mountain is 87 m high and you get a fantastic view over the entire inner city and achipelago! It is possible to drive all the way up.
If you want an overview of Gothenburg, take a trip to Ramberget and enjoy the scenery! If you come by car drive to the second parking place, there you have the highest point and a little monument pointing out different interesting places in Gothenburg.
