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?
