Arken is a hotel in the harbour of Gothenburg around 20-30 minutes with car from central Gothenburg. The hotel located in an industrial area, however, this is almost invisible from the inside the hotel. The restaurant has a nice view of the sea with the inlet o the harbour. In the summer it possible to sit outside the restaurant close...

The hotel is confortable. But for me, I think that the rooms are very small. Also the check-out is not the faster. On the other side, the hotel is really next door to Volvo Torslanda, which is his main advantage.

Located 30 min by car from the airport, this place is fairly large and suits conference and business event...but this is done with style. The rooms are small but fill the purpose. Friendly reception. Had dinner in their restaurant twice. Medium/high price but good value. Even for our group of 30 pers, the food was good and the waiter could...

I was there for a business trip just for one night. I have to report two different views: one regarding the hotel and one for the restaurant. Hotel: it is located in the industrial area, so close to the various Volvo locations; the room for one was rather small without enough space to accomodate clothes and other items, TV channels...

Always a pleasure to stay @ Arken. Friendly price and friendly staff. Rooms are basic, don't wait for luxury. Spa I like a lot. Not too fancy but very relaxing. Many different type of relaxing rooms and saunas. Variety of pools from chilly to hot and several places for complete relaxation. Nature is close, outdoor area is naturally build. Beautiful...

To be honest, when you're approaching the hotel it is a tad disconcerting as it appears to be in an industrial estate. Don't be put off. The hotel is warm and welcoming and really stylish. We had connecting rooms which were a tad bejou but were very clean. One small note to the hotel, in both rooms the toilet roll...

This hotel has good facilities. The gym is the best I have seen in a hotel. I didn't try the Spa, but it looked pleasant from what I saw of it. The restaurant has a terrace with a view over the sea and we enjoyed a BBQ buffet for dinner. Breakfast was excellent, with a very large choice from the...

A really wonderful spa with lots of different saunas and warm/cold swimming pools. Children are not allowed which makes it possible for silence and peace. There are different teas and fruits at the both floors and couches to rest in. One thing I adore the most is the little beds with warm stones, that is a must-do. I definitely recommend...
