Accommodation in Gothenburg
Travelling with the family
When it comes to Sweden, Stockholm may get all the recognition, but Gothenburg is well worth checking out, particularly if you're planning the next big family holiday. This friendly Scandinavian city is brimming with family fun as well as a host of hotels that cater to groups and budgets of all sizes.
A stay close to Liseberg – Gothenburg's preeminent amusement park – will keep parents and kids entertained. The Gothia Towers is located close by as is the Scandic Hotel Opalen. Both are also close by the Universeum Science Discovery Centre for animals, experiences and challenges for all ages.
Hitting the road alone
If you're hitting the road on your own, Gothenburg is a great city to explore. Not only will you find plenty to see and do on the cheap, you'll also find the list of available budget-friendly accommodation most helpful. Head to the Haga to stroll the historic city streets and enjoy the view from Skansen Kronan. The shopping district of Magasinkvarteret is also close by.
B&Bs and hostels are a great way to get a comfortable night's sleep at lower costs. The Slottsskogens Hostel provides single rooms with quality shared amenities within walking distance to the historic Haga district. Le Mat B&B is another fantastic choice close to Haga with reasonable rates.
Slightly south of the city lies the Archipelago of Southern Gothenburg, drawing travellers with such activities as seal spotting, lobster fishing or relaxation on one of the many lovely beaches found throughout this stunning set of islands. Along with the charm of its traditional villages and beautiful landscapes is a range of available accommodation.
The Pensionat Styrso Skaret is a 4-star stay on Styrso Island with a traditional feel, offering guests an on-site restaurant and the opportunity to rent kayaks and bicycles for further exploration. Kajkanten Vrango offers 11 cabins along the coast of Vrango island, or stay at the Hono Hotell on Hono Island.
