Dockyard Hotel –right where Gothenburg meets the sea

Dockyard Hotel is the perfect symbiosis of fresh sea air and the pulse of the city. Thanks to its location between the sea and the city, the hotel is equally well suited to conferences and meetings and to overnight business travellers and tourists in Gothenburg. Here you’ll find 148 hotel rooms of varying sizes and styles – and a generous breakfast buffet and our personal hospitality are, of course, included for all of our guests. In addition, we have six conference rooms which can optimally accommodate groups both small and large, and a restaurant where we put our heart and soul into spoiling our guests.
Dockyard Hotel at Nya Varvet, opposite the Port of Gothenburg, boasts a history that we humbly nurture today. After all, it is right here that Axel and Emilia met many years ago. Their love of the sea and this place was as strong as their love for each other. Read their fascinating story here.


Nice beds and a good night’s sleep for a reasonable price are one thing. However, experiencing unique hotel rooms in buildings with a history that is as emotionally charged as it is fascinating is something else altogether. At Dockyard Hotel you can relax in one of the distinctive split-level rooms in the guardhouse Vakthuset’s yellow barrack wings, which were built back in 1820 and are steeped in tradition.

Savour the tranquillity in the modern main building’s classically furnished hotel rooms and suites, or find out what it’s like to stay in the grand old Cellfängelset cell house, whose stone foundations have withstood time and storm alike.


We call our restaurant and bar Bistro. At Dockyard Hotel we feel this describes the special atmosphere that is created when taste meets emotion in the absence of pretentiousness. Our kitchen is highly ambitious and focuses on raw produce and skill.

Our hotel breakfast is hearty enough to get our guests’ day off to the right start. Emilia’s mussel soup is Dockyard Hotel’s signature dish. It not only tastes delicious, it also has a long history which you can read all about in the story of Axel and Emilia.

We also offer an exquisite à la carte menu of seasonal dishes composed by our chef.


The views, surroundings, sea breeze, the water and the beautiful venues. Five elements that make a meeting at Dockyard Hotel so different. Our venues range from charming rooms for small groups to airy settings for groups of up to 200.

The light let in by the generous skylight in Signes salong adds that something extra and the Ebbes lounge corner room is dual aspect with unbeatable views of the port entrance.


Get together in a relaxed atmosphere here at Dockyard Hotel.

The sound of lapping waves, walks along the water’s edge and relaxation by the jetty create the ideal backdrop for an unforgettable event with us.

Taking the rebuilt and newly renovated Reveljen as a starting point, we can offer a venue with all the opportunities you could wish for a meal, event or kick-off.
