“A Nice Little Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This is a 1920's ship turned into a hotel just minutes walk from the Goteborg Central Train/Bus Station and Nordstan. We were the only guest for our one night stay. Room is clean, well appointed, small (as expected) with a porthole window. Breakfast was served. This is a refreshing change if you are tired of same-old, same-old hotels.

Took my family with me on a business trip to Gothenburg. Thought the kids would like sleeping on a ship. Kids loved it, and so did I. Good service, nice rooms. Okay breakfast. And great location. I have stayed here several times before, and I like it because it is a little different (yet same good service) from other regular hotels.

I traveled to Sweden with a good friend of mine, and because of the uniqueness and history of the Barken Viking, we decided to splurge and stay on the ship for our last night in Sweden. It was one of the best decisions I made on this trip and was a great way to end a great vacation. The staff was very helpful and courteous, the room was very clean and comfortable, the food was delicious, and the service was exemplary. I felt the cost of the room was well worth it, and very reasonable for the accommodations. If I am lucky enough to make it back to Sweden, I am definitely staying on the Barken Viking again— it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
