Gothenburg, located at the mouth of the Gota River on the south-west coast, may be known as Sweden’s 'second city' but its good-time reputation is enough to rival hip Stockholm. With a wooden rollercoaster, plenty of bars and clubs and boutique shops showcasing up-and-coming designers, it’s a city that buzzes all year round.
At the Elite Park Avenue, you’ll be at the absolute centre of the action. Located on Avenyn, the most famous boulevard in Gothenburg, the hotel is within walking distance of Central Station and is just a hop, skip, jump away from the cultural quarter, Götaplatsen square, where you’ll find the city’s main theatre and independent art galleries.
If museums and galleries don’t float your boat, then head up to the city’s port, which is the largest in Scandinavia, to see many of Sweden’s historic vessels, including a Viking ship. Spend an afternoon pottering around the network of canals and the cobbled squares lined with pastel-coloured buildings. No visit to Gothenburg is complete without sampling a few regional specialities such as lingonberry jam or herring and new potatoes washed down with beer and schnapps.
Superior rooms are modern and stylish with neutral décor. The air-conditioned rooms have satellite TV and comfy armchairs.
The varied buffet breakfasts cater for all diets. The hotel has three restaurants. Park Avenue Café serves modern reworkings of classic Scandinavian dishes, while the English-style pub, The Bishops Arms, serves the usual pub fare. If neither take your fancy, there’s also the crowd-pleasing Restaurant Locatelli offering continental cuisine and a late-night bar.
No Swedish hotel would be complete with a wellness centre and at the Elite, you’ll have use of its gym, saunas and relaxation area. Massages and treatments can be booked.
This is an ideal location for those wanting to be in the heart of the city. The Elite Park Avenue is on the city’s main road, which is packed with bars, restaurants and clubs. Trams also run nearby, but with its compact size, most of Gothenburg's sights are easily reachable on foot or bike. The Liseberg amusement park, with its famous wooden roller coaster is not far and Gothenburg City Airport is only six miles away.
