Hotel Villan, BW Premier Collection, Gothenburg

4.5/5  - basé sur 130 notations.
Sjoportsgatan 2, 417 64, Gothenburg, Sweden - See map

The Hotel Villan, BW Premier Collection®, which translated means The Villa, is a fashionable and cultural building that was once management headquarters for Eriksberg’s shipyard during the ship building era. Decisions made here came to affect the entire ship building industry in Sweden. We have transformed this residence with its fine old traditions into a little hotel with a personal and exclusive atmosphere. The hotel opened in the spring of 2008 with 26 rooms. On the waterfront near downtown, our unique location in Goteborg’s exclusive and peaceful waterfront, just 10 minutes travel distance from downtown Goteborg offers a range of possibilities. This means you as our guest can easily choose between peaceful quiet relaxation and a more upbeat city pace. Just step outside the hotel for a lovely stroll along the docks followed by a mean in our restaurant on the second floor, with the river and city lights twinkling in the background. Or for a change of pace, why not take the ferry or the bus into the city center?

"Excellent hotel for a short buisness trip"


Visited the hotel on a short buisness trip to Gothenburg. The hotel is small, with a cozy atmosphere. Very friendly personnel and comfortable rooms with all necessary utilities. Small resturant upstairs from the reception with beautiful view over the river and the full-rigger Götheborg. We had both dinner and (complementary) breakfast in the restaurant, and the food was delicious. Quiet neighbourhood and easy to find parking in the area. Ferry to the city centre just outside the hotel.

"Great Boutique Hotel"


I normally stay in one of the big chains out of a sometimes blind / misguided loyality - however during this brief trip to Gothenburg I decided to opt for this small independent Best Western hotel, following a very good experience with the brand in Stockholm. I wasn't disappointed. Hotel itself was very nice - impeccably clean & well kept - but this was superseded by the service. Fantastic welcome at check in - coupled with a room upgrade and complimentary drinks voucher. I had only just requested a status match from HHonors top level to the BW equivalent that week - a painless process in itself - and was glad I did as I immediately reaped the benefits. Hotel itself is quite small - only 26 rooms I believe - but it made the stay all the more special. The attention to detail from the hotel team was consistently very good. I wandered into the bar 20 minutes before opening - but the guy there didn't hesitate in offering me a beer even though he was closed & busy preparing for the evening ahead. Same level of service at breakfast the next day - it was pretty quite - but again, the attention to detail was fantastic. The server was friendly / chatty & couldn't have done more for me. Quality & layout of the buffet was really good also. Overall - the stay made me re-think my decade long approach to staying in big / sometimes soulless hotels. I really liked the one on one service at The Villan - it made me feel like a proper guest ! Only small downside is location - while it's in a lovely neighbourhood with some great walks along & interesting bars & restaurants the waterfront, it's a little out of the city (approx. 3 km). Once I figured out the public transport however, this wasn't an issue - 20 minutes & 25SEK on the bus - wich stops 3 minutes walk from the hotel.

"Excellent hotel"


I have eaten in the restaurant at Hotel Villan a few times over the years and finally stayed at the hotel this weekend. The restaurant has always been amazing and the hotel did not disappoint either. Great and helpful staff, lovely rooms and a general chilled out and cozy atmosphere. Eriksberg is a lovely district of Gothenburg and a short ferry journey from the centre and the pier for the ferry is right outside the hotel. We will be staying here again and can't recommend this hotel highly enough

"Very Swedish "


Clean, simple, cosy, with style. Had a very pleasant stay in the hotel, it has all the amenities needed if you are on a business trip, breakfast could have a little bit more variety but overall is very good. If the weather helps it is a very nice area for an evening walk.

"Perfect location and cosy hotel"


Modern and cosy hotel. Polite personell. They were helpfull. Easy to park close to hotel. They let us have the room longer on our check out day. Close to water. Close to restaurants. Clean and tidy room. Confortable beds.

"Almost like at home"


I guess the hotel has one of the best city view. It is small and therefore I felt myself much better then other bigger hotels nearby. Room was not at that big but well furnisched. I only missed the minibar. They have a good internal restaurant and serve good breakfast. No sauna/fittness centre but having so wonderful place in front to have jogging why ask for it. Also parking is ok and not so expensive (50kr all night long)

"Gem "


What a lovely place and location. The proprietor greeted us and gave great advice for a lovely afternoon and evening out at the Gothenburg archipelagos. We had stayed downtown but much preferred Hotel Villian. It is a quick ferry to downtown.

"A good hotel that's on a pier"


The hotel was good with friendly staff. Cookies were very good and loved by my children. The rooms were very clean and welcoming. The bathrooms were of good size. The breakfast was sumptuous and had a good variety. Even for vegetarians. The smoothie was awesome. The view of water front from the deck of the breakfast area is calming. Just near the hotel was a restaurant which served some great vegetarian food. It also had a small play area in the shape of a ship which was a hit with my kids who were playing pirates.

"Very good and clean hotel"


I stayed there while on business travel and my experience was very good. The hotel is in good shape and has a great view into the harbor. It is around 15-20 minutes by car from Gothenburg city center. Room was basic but had no air condition. When I stayed there the temperature was high (which is rare case in Sweden) and the room was very warm and I had troubles in sleeping but in general it is good. Breakfast is delicious and has a very wide range of varieties

"Isolated gem"


If you are interested in staying away from the bustle, opt for Hotel Villan. The rooms are decorated with a modern touch and spacious. The breakfast is absolutely fantastic, and little touches, like homemade cookies in the lobby and umbrellas outside everyone's door make this hotel memorable. The only downside-- be sure to have everything you need when you come or go-- the location is 15 minutes by bus or ferry from everything.
