Hotell Barken Viking
Ranked #26 of 67 Hotels in Gothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 November 2011

Took my family with me on a business trip to Gothenburg. Thought the kids would like sleeping on a ship. Kids loved it, and so did I. Good service, nice rooms. Okay breakfast. And great location. I have stayed here several times before, and I like it because it is a little different (yet same good service) from other regular hotels.

I traveled to Sweden with a good friend of mine, and because of the uniqueness and history of the Barken Viking, we decided to splurge and stay on the ship for our last night in Sweden. It was one of the best decisions I made on this trip and was a great way to end a great vacation. The staff was very helpful and courteous, the room was very clean and comfortable, the food was delicious, and the service was exemplary. I felt the cost of the room was well worth it, and very reasonable for the accommodations. If I am lucky enough to make it back to Sweden, I am definitely staying on the Barken Viking again— it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

I was planning a trip for me and my four year old to Göteborg and my husband told me about an old ship that was converted into a hotel there. This type of thing is right up my alley and we weren't disappointed. From the moment we walked into the lobby, the charm of the place just made me giddy. Apparently the hotel was last renovated in 2008 and they really did a marvelous job. The rooms are small but very cosy, clean, well-appointed--wood paneled walls and nautical colors--just so adorable. The only complaint I would have is that the walls facing the hallway seem pretty thin so you can hear children running down the corridor at 8:30 in the morning. Other than that it was very quiet and peaceful sleeping at night. The breakfast is wonderful and the restaurant upstairs was very good--we ate dinner there our first night. The location is great, just a block away from Nordstan and a 10 minute tram ride from Liseberg/Universeum. If you appreciate kitsch with lots of charm, you will like this hotel. I would love to stay there again some day!
