Naas Fabriker Hotel is a handsome example of adaptive reuse of an old brick building. It’s a modern hotel in what was once a cotton textile factory. It’s right off of an exit on E20, the highway from Gothenberg to Stockholm, on the shore of a small lake about 20 miles east of Gothenberg. The rooms are furnished sparingly and simply. The bathroom is well equipped, with solid-feeling modern chrome fittings and a large step-in tub & shower. The only downside to the rooms is that that artificial lights are dim. Many of the rooms have double height ceilings, with a large living room and a kitchen area below and a staircase up to the bedroom & bath. Those rooms have 8 or 10 foot high windows and excellent views out onto the lake. In the summer, light floods in from 3 AM to 10 PM, but there are curtains you can draw to block the light when you go to sleep. Rooms on the third floor have ceilings of normal height. The hotel has free wifi with good bandwidth in both the rooms and the public areas.
The lobby is open, with three or four seating areas, and it runs directly into the restaurant. There is a complete Scandinavian breakfast in the morning and excellent cuisine for lunch and dinner. Guests can use a bathhouse on the lake, and you can arrange for a small boat tour of the lake. The hotel will loan bathing suits for guests who come unprepared for the bathhouse. The guests were a mix of vacationers and people attending business meetings, which were in a separate building close to the hotel entrance. In an adjacent factory building between the highway and the hotel, there’s what’s supposed to be an outlet clothing store. It carries brands like Polo at prices you would find in London, and higher than US prices. But perhaps the prices are low for Sweden. You can walk under the E20 highway and up to the village of Tollered. Get a map at the front desk and follow the stream that powered the textile factory past a waterfall and up to another lake, Torskabotten. There’s a beach and picnic area on that lake, about a mile’s walk from the hotel.
