Spent 4 nights here. Location really excellent, very easy to walk from train/bus station. Close to city, transport and shopping. Beds comfortable, good breakfast. We couldn't open the window in our room so was sometimes a bit stuffy, but other members of the party had no trouble with their rooms. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Really provided everything we needed.

Had originally booked a different, more expensive hotel, but then found the Barken Viking on TA and thought it would fun to try. So glad I did - what an out-of-the-ordinary experience. I walked with my luggage from the train station. It was easy to find. I enjoyed my little room for the one night I was there -- small... More

Stayed there for a night and the front personnel was very helpful regarding my questions as to how to move around the city. The bed was comfortable and I slept very well, the temperature in the room was however strange, sometimes it felt too warm and stifling but at the same time there was a very cold draft. Breakfast has... More

My trip was only for staying one night there and I found this place near railway station that is reasonable and most of all interested. The idea to keep a old vessel in harbor for tourist is not only elegant but also affordable, you can see all around from the upper deck and feel like old pirate in the middle... More

I needed a business hotel close to my customer, and this was 100m away, so I booked it. The taxi driver didn't know where it was, or more accurately, he didn't know this heritage ship was a hotel, so he took me to a different ship - not the hotel's fault, but challenging! The staff were lovely; the ship is... More

Dear pjg247, I have to thank you twice. First of all for you really kind comments on the hotel but also for bringing to my attention that not all sites have updated information about the restaurant closure for refurbish. I will, of course ,investigate further and take all necessary actions so that this information is properly displayed. We look forward... More

The Barken Viking, a four-masted steel windjammer, was a stunning hotel which I was fortunate to call home while in Göteborg. My room was at the bow, which made for an interesting configuration and a slightly sloping deck. My pristine sleeping “quarters” held a single bed and cushy lounge chair which were decorated in a robust nautical red. The wooden... More

From the receptionist through to the chamber maids the staff were professional, friendly and great. Coffee, fruit and biscuits available complementary at all times. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was extensive and an abundance of protein to fuel the day. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again. Peter and... More

We stayed here for one night and came by car. It was easy to find the way to Nordstans parkinghouse. From the parking it was a five minutes walk over a brigde. We payed the parking in the hotel, only 140 sek for 24h. Its a really charming and nice boat, well maintained. The room is at good size and... More

Very pleasant stay dedspite no restaurant. Each room have different lay-out , very cosy . Break fast is tastefull with great sweedish flavour. Walking on curved bended corridor provides feeling of the steamer from last century.
