The room: Hotel Flora has a selection of room sizes to choose from to suit different needs. We stayed in the aptly-titled ‘large’ room (to the point) on the second floor overlooking a quiet street. Ours was simple and classic, with crisp white walls and contemporary black furniture – other rooms include the pastel pink ‘Lady Flora’ and lumberjack fave ‘The Wood Room’. Super quiet and super relaxing, this was the perfect retreat for 3 days in Gothenburg.

Experience: This is a family run boutique hotel, and service exceeds all expectations. The hotel gives you 150 SEK to spend in their bar, on a room upgrade or to donate to Realstars if you book directly through their website. There’s a co-working space on the ground floor and a peaceful, secluded terrace upstairs. Breakfast was everything you expect from a Swedish hotel – tasty, hearty, and way too much to choose from. OK, so there was a minor mishap with a step in the hotel. There may have been a broken toe. There were definitely tears. Many thanks to the staff for keeping the ice packs coming. (Sorry guys).

What is there to do nearby?: The New Orleans inspired Bourbon St [Västra Hamngatan 24] is just around the corner for great food Cajun food, or head to The Barn [Kyrkogatan 11] for Gothenburg’s best burgers. Walk over to Cafe Husaren [Haga Nygata 24] in Haga for their famous Hagabullen – yes, it’s giant cinnamon bun. Follow this up with a walk to Skansen Kronan [Skansberget], a 17th century fortress on Risåsberget above Haga.
