  • Rooms are free and beautiful ballad, showing the names of each of the plants. Together both vegetal and mineral, it's lovely. Beware, some parts are steep with rocks, but frankly I liked.

  • Love this place, beautiful flowers, playground and special rose cafe. Too bad for me it is not open to dogs because now my husband and I couldn't go together because one had to stay with the dog  more »
  • Cosy garden with wooded area where you can take a shorter or longer walk. Simpler playground for children. Perfect for eating a little picnic on a blanket! To buy something in the Café is unfortunately very expensive.

Where to stay in Gothenburg

Gothenburg has much to offer in the way of accommodations, all relatively close to the city center. You'll find a number of upscale hotels in the city center and on the outskirts of the city as well, that offer a luxurious, private retreat. There are a few mid-range options here in the form of hotels and bed and breakfasts. Budget-conscious travelers can seek out a number of hostels and guesthouses, or rent an apartment and save money on food by cooking at home. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, opt to stay at one of the many campsites. No matter what your price point, be sure to book in advance.
