Novotel & Volvo

by Rikki_T

considering booking Novotel in Gothenburg, is this wise? Is it far from city centre? How much would a taxi be likely to cost?

Also is the Volvo factory tour open to the general public? Any info on this would be great as my friend is a Volvo fanatic!


Re: Novotel & Volvo

Novotel is not on walking distance to downtown Göteborg but it is next to the river so you will have all the harbour life to watch with ferries coming and going. It is in the old Carnegie (Göteborg is full of Scottish history - Dickson and Chalmers were other famous men in town) porter brewery :-) There is a tram nearby that will take you downtown in 15 minutes or so. If I'm not mistaken, you can go by public transport boats least you could when I lived there.

Yes you can visit Volvo, although it's more a museum than a factory tour even though it's by the factory:

Re: Novotel & Volvo

As most of the sights are in walking distance from the entral part of GBG you should consider a better location of your hotel, that`s my advice. But there could be a problem as the travel-exhibition is in town.
(Wich could mean higer prices, limited availibility, etc.)
Otherwise Hotel allen is a good option at the price/location.
of course, as sjalen mentioned you could use public transport but personally i would put my time and money elsewere.

Bye for now......

Thanks for the advice.

Ive managed to find ok deals on Elite Plaza and Hotel Gothia or the Ditt Hotel, all roughly for same price... which is the best out of these?


Re: Novotel & Volvo

by Sjalen


Ditt Hotell is a hotel chain and I believe the one in Göteborg is Excelsior. Good location near "Smaka" :-) and several cafes and restaurants. You can easily walk to both Avenyn, the parade street, and Linnegatan with its bars. The hotel itself looks like a typical stone townhouse turned hotel - the kind you find everywhere in major cities.

Gothia is a high rise tower with lots of glass. Located near the trade fair and amusement park (which is closed until late April anyway) but still within walking distance to Avenyn. Further to other things though BUT has a sky bar on the top floor which is popular with locals too and has nice city views.

Finally, Elite Plaza - a fairly new hotel in an impressive town house formerly housing the university's classical departments. Marble pillars and the like. Location is also nice, close to both the Excelsior area I mentioned above and downtown with the canals and riverside. Near the cathedral with its pedestrian shopping street.

elite plaza would be my choice, most because the location, but also by the standard.
allthough all these hotel are good options.

good luck.

Travel Tips for Göteborg



The Haga district was established by Queen Kristina in the mid 16th century as Goteborg's first suburb. It soon became a sort of worker's area as it was mainly harbour workers who lived there.
As the city centre has grown a lot in the 20th century, the Haga district changed its appearance. Nowadays it is a charming area with old buildings, cobbled streets, many cafes and little shops.

GOTIA CUP (I apologize for the...

by Chus69

GOTIA CUP (I apologize for the name... I don't remember exactly). This event takes place every year in Göteborg and I was very surprised when we were walking by the streets and found lots of people going to the Football Field (Ullevi Stadium). It consists of a great competition where young people of all over the world play for a Cup similar to the FIFA World Championship.

International Export

by Todd64

I'm sure many of you know by now that Göteborg is famous for being the birthplace of so many Internationaly popular exports, such as Hasselblad cameras, Volvo passenger cars, SKF ballbearings and those ice-cream vendors turned pop stars; Ace of Base, but Does Your Mother Know, Fernando, that one of Sweden's most famous sons, Björn Ulvaeus of yes you guessed it; ABBA fame, was born here in 1945?

Well,'s true, Waterloo.

I can see it now when he heads for that giant Disco dance-floor in the sky; right in the center of Gustav Adolfs Torg, beside the majestic, classical bronze of the city's founder, will stand a 10 meter high, pink and cream spandex covered likeness of Björn depicting what he did best.

I think I should visit again before that happens, you know what I mean Dancing Queen? I do, I do, I do, I do, I do!

Gothenburg Half Marathon

by Sjalen

Göteborgsvarvet (a local pun since "varv" means both lap and wharf), is a half marathon taking place in May every year. There is also a youth event in the Slottsskogen park linked to it. The official site below will tell you everything you need to know to register, or just watch along the way. Amongst the funnier things with the race is that you get to run across the Älvsborgsbron bridge in the picture.


by hevbell

I got off the ferry at Styrso Bratten and had a nice wander round there. It was SO peaceful and some beautiful views.

I came across this lovely little church and just had to get a picture! :)
