This former bank office, with its impressive marble stairs and high ceiling, is the favorite home away from home for celebrities like Bruce Springsteen when vising Gothenburg. Located opposite Gothenburg Cathedral, Elite Plaza has a central yet discreet location. Streets like Magasinsgatan and Vallgatan—major areas for dining, drinking, and shopping—are just around the corner, and the tram stop is two minutes away. The five-star hotel has 127 rooms, including 2000-square-foot suites, with complimentary wine, fruit, Nespresso coffee, and luxury toiletries. The rooms are decorated in a classical Scandinavian style—not too personal, but very comfortable and harmonious. Elite Plaza has its own gym and sauna, and also offers free gym and sports classes at the Friskis & Svettis gym next door. A breakfast buffet is included and the restaurant Swea Hof, in what used to be the backyard, serves modern local cuisine with an emphasis on fish and seafood. The leather armchairs in the bar are a comfortable and luxurious place to hang out for an hour or two.
