Arken Hotel & Art Garden Spa
Ranked #41 of 67 Hotels in Gothenburg
Reviewed 17 August 2009

This is a clean, modern and stylish hotel in a good condition. The beds are comfortable and the breakfast is excellent. The only problem with the hotel is the location (if you want to visit Gothenburg without a car). Sure, the hotel is located in the harbour, which gives a nice view, but the surrounding industrial area is still very boring. To go to the city you need to take two different buses and it takes about 30 minutes. In late evenings there are no buses available, so the only way to get to the hotel is by taxi. The hotel has a special deal with one of the local taxi companies, so you can go to the hotel for 250 SEK (one way). This way the visit becomes rather expensive if you want to stay out late. In short - if you just want to stay in your hotel room - choose this hotel. Otherwise, choose one with a better location.
