The Novotel Hotel Goteborg (Gothenburg) is actually quite not far from where we live, yet one day we decided to stay one night here for a weekend getaway. We booked a Standard Room without considering any views from inside. What we would like to do was to dine at the hotel’s restaurant and to walk around for some early autumn fresh air. Knowing that the Novotel Hotel Goteborg is the only Novotel hotel in Sweden it would be interesting for us to distinguish the different Novotel Hotels we have stayed in, particularly in other countries.
Housing the Novotel Hotel Goteborg is Carnegie’s former porter brewery. The distinctive colour is common among old structures you will see in Sweden. The Porter brewery is located at the entrance to the port of Gothenburg. The brewing came to an end in 1975 when the Danish-inspired lager beers became popular.
The lobby is artistically decorated and the lighting fixtures give warmth which is appropriate in the winter. The hallway is quite a long walk from the elevator but not bad at all. Close to the elevator is a little display of impressive photographs and those miniature historical artefacts.
The room we got was more than acceptable. It’s simply furnished and the parquet floor is better than a carpet that sometimes can be unhealthy.
If you fancy a drive around the city you can rent one of these Volvo vintage cars for an affordable fee. But if you prefer cykling you can use the Novotel bicycles for free.
Outside the hotel you will see this old sugar mill among other structures in the area.
I can’t seem to tell what this structure is but it’s so beautiful. It looks like a castle to me.
The harbour makes a lovely view from the hotel’s bar and restaurant. The Novotel Hotel Goteborg is situated in an area called Klippan and it’s quite a distant away from the city centre but it’s a perfect place to relax and unwind. If you’re visiting Gothenburg we recommend you stay at the Novotel Hotel Goteborg and you’ll definitely like what you will see around.
