Tripadvisor’s ‘Traveler’s Choice Awards’, the best awards from the Massachussets company, which are based on the opinions of millions of travelers from around the world, have once again chosen the best hotel in Sweden and the award didn’t go to a luxury hotel in Stockholm* but in Gothenburg.
Upper House in Gothenburg
The 5-star Upper House hotel located in the Gothia Towers has been awarded the prize as the best hotel for the year 2019 in Sweden. The Upper House is, as the name suggests, ‘the upper and more exclusive house’ of the Gothia Towers Hotel. Its rooms and suites occupy floors 20 to 24 of the central tower. While breakfast is held every morning on the 25th floor with spectacular views of Gothenburg.
In one of my trips I had the opportunity to visit the exclusive Upper House, its suites and restaurants as well as the upper terrace where in season they have their own organic cultivation of aromatic herbs and honey collection from more than 30,000 bees. 100% local production
The rooms are divided into:
- Superior: 31 sqm, two 105 cm beds, 2 TVs
- Deluxe: 48 sqm, one king size bed 205 cm wide by 210 cm long, 2 televisions, panoramic windows with excellent views, espresso machine
- Deluxe suite: 72 sqm like the previous one but larger
- Grand executive suite: 158 sqm on two floors, dining room for private meals, double bathroom, 3 TVs
An unquestionably proof of how good this hotel is that Upper House has been awarded Sweden’s Best Hotel for the fourth time. And that is also shown in the satisfaction figures of the customers visiting.
Bookings at the Upper House include entrance to the spa, gym and yoga sessions, and core and other functional training sessions.
The Gothia Towers Hotel
The 4-star Gothia Towers hotel has 1200 international luxury rooms and suites. There are several bars and restaurants such as the popular Heaven 23 and a spa and heated outdoor hanging pool.
The Gothia Towers are located in front of the Liseberg amusement park and next to the Gothenburg trade fair at the famous Korsvägen crossroads. The central Avenyn, full of shops and restaurants, is just a few minutes walk away.
