... leg north as it is often very uncomfortable arriving into touristy towns, direct from the wilds with helmet hair, amidst all the smartly dressed, sweet smelling tourists! Instead we turned south and headed the 30km towards Fredikshavn-where we planned to take the ferry to Gothenburg in Sweden the next day.
We made our way to the wild campsite which we knew existed just outside of Fredrikshavn, but had no idea of the grand surrounds awaiting us! We arrived ...
Today we spent the morning in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is on the west coast of Sweden and is the 2nd largest city in the country. We decided to walk around the city and see what we found.
We started out the morning early — before shops or sites were open — at a rose garden. They had a variety of flowerbed and it is situated along one of the ...
... mechanical oddities which are the only form of motorised transport allowed, until we reached the end of the island after about 25 minutes. There we had our food, looked at the scenery, then went back to the ferry. The sun came out early on and we almost got close to pink (in a pale sort of way).Had it been the Australian sun we'd be hospitalised for a week.

Historical Traveler Reviews Gothia Towers Gothenburg
We stayed in a standard double room in the Gothia Towers Hotel. The views were great and the facilities and space in the room excellent. The buffet breakfast was busy on the Sunday morning- its completely self-service, but lovely and quiet on Monday. There were lots of families staying as the Liseberg Gardens are immediately opposite the hotel. The atmosphere was cool and calm in the hotel- the staff friendly and the surrounding area ideal for eating out or walking to town/the botanic gardens. We would go again and would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to both families and couples/singles.
What a Hotel, stayed here on the Easter Weekend 05, on great value for money rates. One thing - ask for a non smoking room ! better decor & views. Heaven 23 bar and restaurant are stunning, definitley the place to be on a Saturday night and the food in the restaurant is delicious !!!! One more thing to add, I have never seen so many plates of prawns beeing sold in one place in my life !! they tasted great too...
Sky Executive Room - recomended
Used to stay at the Elite Plaza [ a 5 star hotel ] - but on this trip could not get it booked so, stayed at the Gothia Towers for the first time. Found the staff very helpful, used the valet parking service and all was as it should be. Did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the restaurent. BUT, if you stay at this hotel, you must book the SKY EXECUTIVE ROOM. The view from the 22nd floor is terrific. Plus, rooms have free pay TV, free Mini Bar, free room service. 15 minute walk to the Avenue for restaurents - so no problem there. Down side - it is big and it is not a pretty hotel, but put that to one side and enjoy the views !!
Okay - but nothing special
We stayed the night the weekend before Christmas. It is quite a bland hotel with not alot to recommend it or not recommend it. There is nothing particularly special about it, the service is very impersonal, but there is nothing really to complain about either. Quite a cold experience.
This is pretty much a conference hotel, but we booked it because it was across the road from the big theme park that our kid wanted to visit. We stayed for two nights, and it was pretty good, although slightly cool and clinical as the Swedish interior design normally is. My 10 year old son loved the glass elevator that takes you up to the bar on the 23rd Floor, and the view from up there gives a panorama of the city. It's nice at night too, when it seems to be fairly busy with Swedish businessmen. The rooms were up to the standard of a Hilton or Hyatt type hotel, and there was good internet access at two points in the lobby. Apart from the theme park and nearby Science Museum, there wasn't a lot in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, but you could walk into the centre of town no problem. Or take a tram - there's a big terminus outside.

Three days in Gothenburg
Just got back from three days in Gothenburg. Had a fantastic time. Travelled with my 10 year son on City Airlines. Very good service and on time. Stayed at the Gothia Towers. The hotel was wonderful. Our room was lovely with terrific views of the city. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the central location was very handy. So much to see and do. We purchased the Gothenburg pass which included free transportation and entrance to many museums and attractions. We ran out of time and have decided we must go back again soon. A lovely city with lovely people. I haven't stopped raving about it since we got back.
Stylish swedish comfort
While in the process of relocating to Gothenburg, we were fortunate to spend 4 nights here. The location and veiw were both great. Our hotel room was very HiPP and stylish. From the porthole on the bathroom door, to the suede chairs, and the soft damask linens, we were living in comfort. Room service was also very good, since we have a small child.
Would highly recommend, especially if your intending to go to Liesberg Park, its across the street.
Excellent room and service
Stayed the weekend of february 8 to 10 in this hotel. Sky executive room, excellent service, lovely view, near the centre. Nice disco bar on 23th floor.
