Best luxury hotels in Gothenburg 2021


Located on the west coast of Sweden, this friendly town is easily explored on foot. Founded in 1621, it was the birthplace of Volvo vehicles and is still an important fishing port. There are plenty of alternative activities for city breaks in Gothenburg, such as wild mushroom picking, street art walking tours, the Nordic Watercolor Museum, and tasting sessions at central taprooms. Visitors find it extremely welcoming to children and dogs, and its commitment to sustainability attracts many eco-tourists.

Dorsia Hotel & Restaurant

Regal and theatrical, Dorsia is a sumptuous five-star property decorated in a Belle Époque style. The stunning decor resembles something from a movie or a fairy tale and each of the 37 rooms is completely individual. However, it’s an adults-only place, a central retreat suitable for romantic getaways and solo travelers (single rooms are available). Bright colors, rich fabrics, thick curtains, velvet sofas, shimmering mosaics, oil paintings, and large potted plants are found at the boutique property member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Guests can dine on tasting menus in the glamorous restaurant and soak up on its rooftop terrace, choosing from a wide choice of vintage wines kept in the Dorsia’s cellar.

Gothenburg upper house

Perched between the 18th and 25th floors of one of the impressive Gothia towers, this hotel overlooks the Liseberg theme park. Admire the view from the base of the outdoor swimming pool – it has transparent floors offering a most unique vantage point. The awe-inspiring views don’t end there, though they’re otherwise in the more traditional form of floor-to-ceiling windows. There are two other indoor pools, as well as a spa with a steam room and gym. The Michelin-starred restaurant is a real highlight – allow several hours and an empty stomach to work through the expansive and creative tasting menus. Or you have the option of ordering individual dishes at the bar, as well as room service.
