Set in Gothenburg’s historic post office, and retaining many of its original period features, the Clarion Hotel Post combines traditional charm, modern convenience and a central location at the heart of the city. The exterior’s 1920s neoclassical façade gives way to a stylish, contemporary interior, featuring cool, monochrome palettes and sleek, modern lines. You’re just a few steps from the popular Trädgårdsföreningen park, Gothenburg’s central train station, and Avenyn (the city’s main boulevard).
A generous buffet breakfast is served daily in the dining room. The hotel’s Norda restaurant also offers an impressive Saturday brunch, as well as weekday lunches and dinners — its menu features local ingredients. There’s also a sushi bar and outdoor terrace for enjoying drinks during long Scandinavian summer evenings. During your stay, you can take advantage of the beauty and wellness options available at Skönhetsfabriken (literally: beauty factory), which includes a spa, sauna, gym and pool with panoramic views.
We love this hotel for its excellent location, a short walk from all of Gothenburg’s key highlights, as well as its attentive staff and historical exterior.
Rooms come in six categories, ranging from spaciously sized junior suites to snug moderate doubles. All rooms share the same sleek, modern feel, with minimalist lines, upholstered headboards and palettes that feature cool steel grey and soft taupe, accented by deep-jewel tones. Large windows flood the rooms with natural light in the newer sections, while older sections have historic features like deep window niches and high ceilings. You’ll also find standard modern amenities, like free Wi-Fi, LCD TVs, and coffee and tea facilities.
Located in the heart of the city on Drottningtorget Square, the hotel is just steps from Gothenburg Central Station, where you can catch trains, buses and trams. Across a canal, you can visit the Trädgårdsföreningen horticultural garden in mere moments, and the city’s main boulevard, Avenyn, is just a few minutes further away.
