This is a good if offbeat choice, recommended if you're seeking an off-the-record weekend. It's better for motorists because of its location, although it can also be reached by public transportation. Set 3km (1 3/4 miles) east of Gothenburg's center, in a residential neighborhood filled with other Victorian buildings, this hotel was built in 1897 as a dormitory for Scottish craftsmen imported to work at the nearby lumber mill. Despite its functional purpose, its builders graced it with a conical tower, fancy brickwork, and other architectural adornments that remain in place today. After stints as a warehouse, a delicatessen, and a low-rent hotel, the building was upgraded in 1987 into a cozy, charming, and well-accessorized hotel. Guest rooms have good, firm beds; ample bathrooms; and wooden floors -- and have more flair and character than you'll find at many larger, more anonymous hotels in Gothenburg's center.
