Opposite the Opera House

Hotell Barken Viking is a restored sailing ship moored on Gothenburg’s waterfront. The hotel is opposite the Opera House, while Central Station and Nordstan, the city’s largest mall, are within a 5-minute walk. Guests who fancy a flutter can walk 10 minutes along the river to Gothenburg Casino.

All aboard for breakfast

Built in 1906, the ship provides guests with the experience of an early 20th-century ocean liner. Guests enjoy a free buffet breakfast, 2 bars/lounges, and the restaurant, Kapten Clausens Salong, serves traditional Swedish cuisine. The upper deck and restaurant are open during the summer months. Free WiFi is available in all public areas.

Nautical-themed cabins

Guests can enjoy views of the water through the portholes of the cozy, wood-paneled cabins. Maritime-themed rooms feature watercolors by a local artist and include modern comforts like flat-screen TVs with cable channels.
