My favorite hotel in Gothenburg is hands down Hotel Pigalle – a true decadent luxury oasis in the heart of the city. Hotel Pigalle has been awarded multiple prizes and its Bar Amuse and Restaurant Atelier are one of the best in town.
I live in Gothenburg and decided to book a night at Pigalle Hotel for a mini stay-cation and as a Valentine’s Day surprise for my boyfriend. I booked the room Royale and decided to send in a request for room 335. This post is a review of our stay in Hotel Pigalle in general, as well as our beautiful room.
About Hotel Pigalle
Hotel Pigalle is located about a 2 minute walk from the central station and right in the center of the main shopping district of Gothenburg. The hotel is part of a hotel chain ESS Group and one of the best hotels in Sweden. Parisian-style decor, bar, restaurant and meticulously decorated rooms, mean you can easily spend a long weekend here without even leaving the place.
While Hotel Pigalle is not famous for it’s SPA or gym – in fact, it doesn’t have either – it is the perfect place for those who want to eat good, sleep well and be in the center of the action. There’s nothing wrong with showing up early for your check-in either – they have the coziest waiting area with free coffee in Bar Amuse.
Room 335 is probably the hotel’s most famous room – and for a good reason! The bedroom/bathroom combination is unique and with lots of personality. From the moment you walk in, you forget you are in Gothenburg and emerge yourself in another era altogether. The decor is well-thought through and the bed so soft you could easily spend the day in it.
This is also the first hotel which, besides a hair dryer, offered a hair straightener! Ladies – how awesome is that?!
No matter if you live in the city or are visiting, everyone should experience an evening at Pigalle. After check in we just drank some wine in the room until it was time for dinner. The dinner is served in the same place as breakfast, Atelier – which is on the top floor of the building.
TIP: if you book directly through the hotel. This way you’ll get a better deal than if you book through other hotel websites. They even have a 25% discount on early birds – cool, right?
