From its granite entrance to its English mosaic floor, this neo-classical palatial hotel is so popular, it has twice been awarded Best Business hotel. Built in 1889 and set in the heart of downtown Gothenburg, its ornate decor, wood carving, marble, mosaics, gold leaf paint, and enormous cut-glass chandeliers can't help but impress while the atrium-styled restaurant, Svea Hof, has a three cutlery rating from Michelin. Nearby, there is a range of small shops as well as pubs and restaurants while there is a tram line right in front of the hotel. The Opera House, Liseberg Amusement Park, and Scandinavium Arena are all within one kilometer while the Svenska Massan Congress Center, Ullevi Stadium, Rohsska Museum of Arts and Crafts, and Tradgardsforeningens Park are just two kilometers away. Guests should make a point of sampling the hotel's English-styled pub complete with a fireplace and over 60 beers and whiskies.
