Where to stay in Gothenburg: Hotel Flora

Posted on 15. Nov, 2012 by in Destinations, Europe Travel, Reviews, Sweden

My recent stay in Gothenburg was very, very lovely - in large part due to the amazing hotel I was at: Hotel Flora. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at!

Hotel Flora Gothenburg: The Location

View Larger Map

The hotel is located just off the main shopping streets, tucked away from the hustle, but close enough that all attractions are only within a few minutes walk.

I was there on a Monday, so not the best night to experience Sweden’s legendary nightlife, but I had a nice time hopping from coffeeshop to coffeeshop, observing people and planning my time in the city.

Not away from the bustle though - that might be my only complain. The nearby tram is very noisy, and while I’m dead to the world when I sleep, I reckon it could be an issue for light sleepers. But that really wasn’t a problem for me!

Hotel Flora Gothenburg: The Hotel

The hotel itself is nicely decorated, a mix of both modern lines and cozy, homey touches, in true Swedish style. Despite having over 60 rooms, the hotel doesn’t feel crowded, nor does it feel anonymous.

The common areas are a bit on the small side, which is really for the best - all the more welcoming!

The dining area is great in the mornings, where a complete and varied buffet breakfast is served, and where I can enjoy free WiFi while sipping my elixir of life morning java.

I have to be honest and say that my entire opinion of the hotel may be biased by the single fact that they have bacon in the morning buffet, and as an all-too-long-now-expat-in-France, I cherish these moments when I can get grasp on these delicious slices of heaven.

Hotel Flora Gothenburg: The Rooms

I was assigned what is probably the girliest rooms of all hotels rooms in the entire world - and I LOVED IT. While my husband would have felt slightly emasculated had he been traveling with me, I thoroughly enjoyed the pinks, the airy drapes, the flowers and the beautiful bathroom.

The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in, and the only part that sucked is when my alarm clock rang, reminding me that I wasn’t on a lavish vacation. The room was spacious, spotless, and had all the amenities I could use, including free WiFi.


I really loved my stay at Hotel Flora in Gothenburg, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anybody, and even go back myself, just to see what the other rooms are like. One thing I don’t doubt, though, is that my appreciation would not falter.

Disclaimer: I was a guest of Visit Gothenburg on this trip. As always, all opinions and girly room photos are my own.
