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.
