Could not get enough of this hotel.
The service from check in to check out is excellent. The atmosphere all over the hotel is fantastic.
The rooms, the restaurant, the bar, everything is special. If you are interested in interior design you will love this place!

Room Tip: Every room is the same. The beds are the best!

Having stayed in many hotels in Gothenburg I was mistaken into believing that ' Swedish Luxury' was measured by how much laminate you can build into a single room. In fact one hotel I stayed in when asked what made them 5 star responded 'we put bathrobes on the bed' another simply pointed to a dishevelled looking certificate on the wall sating its award in 1903.

The Dorsia has been ' created' from a mind verging on insanity. I have seem him, the owner, sitting quietly in the corner of this quite extraordinary hotel, smiling with an assumed confidence that knows your mind is going to be challenged by everything you see and experience. He is not flamboyant nor does he exude confidence or find the need to boast about his achievements. Instead he sits and watches taking in your every reaction.

The Dorsia defies conventionality - it is one of the most unusual hotels I have ever experienced not just in Sweden but anywhere - every detail of every single item of decor and furniture comes with a story of quality and design. It's a range of comforting colours, each room designed with thought , each with it's own story to tell.

The food and service of course matches the decor and is delivered by discerning but discreet staff who forever hover in the back ground anticipating you every move and needs.

If you never stay in another hotel again ..... Do visit and stay in his one.

Great staff, great location, and looks amazing! But no bar - just a restaurant - if that doesn't concern you then the Dorsia is an excellent choice. Plenty of nice bars nearby, and the lively "Avenue" is a 5 minute walk away.

I was so relieved to find this hotel after researching lodging in Gothenburg. The pictures on the website are an exact representation of the hotel... It's gorgeous! Very comfortable and inviting with a delicious breakfast. The hotel just opened a few months ago, so it seems they might still be perfecting the operations (which I anticipated). Only a few very minor recommendations for improvement. First, there was no tea kettle in the room. The bathroom amenities were great, but the lighting could have been better. Also, there is no shelf or ledge in the shower for your soap and/or shampoo. It would have been nice to have a room service menu and telephone directory in the room, but I would anticipate they will be adding those. One other thing worth mentioning... Someone walked in my room and immediately closed the door upon realizing the room was occupied. I know this happens in hotels from time to time, but it was a bit unsettling. I could not identify if it was hotel employee or another guest, but there no knocking prior to entry.

The lava TV was great and had Internet, music channels, YouTube, and Facebook. Robe and slippers were very comfy. If you're traveling alone, a standard room should be spacious enough. However, if you're traveling with someone else, I would recommend upgrading to a "medium" or "large" room category.

Overall, service was good, but I think there is room for improvement. The breakfast staff was wonderful, but the reception staff was not very warm or sincere... This might just be a training issue with being a new hotel.

If I return to Gothenburg, I will definitely return to Dorsia.

Trying out the brand new restaurant sleeping in the wonderful decorated rooms
Thanks to the management for a perfect organized evening

This boutique hotel has to be seen - great bar - food was excellent - wine perfect.
Rooms are decorated in wallpaper and curtains from the Designers Guild company.
Shampoo and soaps are the Hermès. All top notch
