Ask a dozen people about their favourite hotel, and you’ll likely get a dozen different responses. A favourite hotel is as much of a personal preference as your favourite movie, book or singer. But in our opinion, the best hotels have a few things in common: they feel intimate and personal (regardless of size or number of rooms), they have a distinctive vibe, the staff offers superb service and the architecture and interior design are unique and full of character. We love them even more when they are deeply ingrained in the local neighbourhood and culture. Here’s our list of five carefully crafted Gothenburg boutique and luxury hotels that tell a strong story.

Hotel Bellora is bright, pleasant, and hip. The décor has a Sixties Italian theme, with black and white Dolce Vita-style images of headscarved models riding Vespas and huge Italian families eating al fresco. Its comfortable ground-floor bar and restaurant open into the street (in summer) and are popular with both residents and visitors, while a regular stream of gorgeous people flows through reception to the rooftop bar, which is one of the locations to be seen in town during the summer. At Hotel Bellora, the city’s social life comes to you.
