Dating back to 1852, this elegant hotel is a 5-minute walk from Gothenburg Central Train Station. It offers a peaceful inner courtyard, free Wi-Fi and free coffee/tea and homemade cake each afternoon....
Score from 1254 reviews Wonderful
Sorry restaurant was not open at night. I found the bed a bit narrow and could have used more hanging space for clothes.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent
It is like a boat, atmosphere...We felt being a boat and travel in the sea...
Despite central location, the quiet harbour area felt a little bit unsafe when walking alone back to the hotel at night.
Special atmosphere, nice staff, good breakfast. Good value for money.
It is a little out of the way, but still very easy to find from the train station (use the covered footbridge from the shopping centre over the road).
Warm, clean and comfortable. Excellent shower. Staff were efficient and attentive rather than friendly.
It's totally different!
On board restaurant closed (seasonal?). No wardrobe or cupboard clothe storage could be a problem for two.
Comfortable, excellent wifi. Breakfast ok. Near Nordstaat so easy access to good public transport (taxis are pricy inGotgenburg) and for quick food if you are in a hurry.
No further words! If I'll have the opportunity to visit again Goteborg I'll stya again at the Barken Viking. And I'll recommend it.
It was cold in my room. Climate Control didn't really help
The receptionists Thorbjörn is amazing and so well informed about the ship
Intresting hotel, breakfast very good...
Hotel on the ship, very interesting except the possible turbulence at night. The breakfast is good.
Really nice hotel on a boat with great interiors, excellent service, great breakfast! Will stay there every time we visit Gothenburg!
The wifi did not work.
We loved the ship, the atmosphere, the staff and the breakfast!
Not possible to pay cash.
No restaurant and a long walk to the expensive parking.
This was a very pleasant Hotel, with the room/cabin very luxurious, friendly helpful staff.
Bed is comfortable but noisy, every time you turn around is making a lot of noise.Front desk staff look very tired, we checked in around 17.30 so it was not very late.
Location is central, breakfast was good
perfect location, clean, great staff, perfect wi-fi; fully recomended
No bar or restaurant. Breakfast was pretty poor, limited range and all the 'hot' items were cold. More like a top-end hostel than a hotel.
Charming old ship with lots of character.
We stayed at the Barken for one night and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and comfort. The hotel is located conveniently to all shops etc. The price was very reasonable especially for Gothenburg and we will not stay anywhere else in future when we visit.
The final approach by foot
Great atmosphere in authentic surroundings.
Very good location, close to the centre, but very quite. Nice hotel, interesting feeling to sleep in the real ship, room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very good-a lot of things, warm and cold, fruits, jam, musli, yogurt. So we can recommend this place, definitely stay there again if come back.
Extremely slanted room
Boat, location, staff,
Got seasick when I got into my room but it went away after a few hours. There was a constant creaking/rumbling sound throughout the night due to strong wind. Quite a distance from centre There was no ship tour unlike SS Rotterdam
Exotic place to stay
sparkling water in the rooms (no still water)
Barken Viking is just amazing, centrally located (massive shopping complex 2 minutes walk away) and is clean, comfortable, friendly and everything you could ask for. We WILL be back!
