where to stay

With over 100 hotels and many hostels, Gothenburg offers a wide range of housing at multiple price levels. The large selection of readily available accommodation removes one obstacle when planning your trip.

We recommend booking your stay at one of the hotels closer to the conference hall. Gothenburg is a medium-sized city with good public transport, but it is a short walk from the light tram if you stay closer to the city center and commute to the conference. You can read more about how to get in and around the town under transportation.

The closest hotels to the conference are

  • Dockyard Hotel Closest to the conference hall, only a 50 meter walk. For booking, email: and use the code: 364830 as a reference to get a discount.
  • Quality hotel Waterfront 
  • Quality Hotel 11 ** note this is on the other side of the river and requires travel by ferry (every 10 minutes at peak travel times)
