Vintage glitz and contemporary glamour in central Gothenburg. At times Dorsia Hotel and Restaurant feels like a welcoming private members club. At others, would be forgiven for thinking you have stepped inside a small-scale palace. This boutique hotel has a longstanding reputation for treating guests like royalty - and for its flamboyant interior design. Black Regency-style furnishings, velvet drapes and richly patterned carpets contrast with glittering tile bathrooms and smart TVs, as classic style meets modern sensibility. Carpe Diem beds and mulberry silk pillows complete the picture, setting the scene for a blissful night of sleep. Before then, there are plenty of richly designed nooks to relax in - perhaps with a glass of wine from the impressive hotel cellar. It will serve as a delicious preamble to dinner. Inspired by the Europe-wide travels of the hotel owner and the hotel heritage, Dorsia Restaurant pairs culinary wizardry with timeless hospitality. The decor is as decadent as the food, as you take your seat among Belle Epoque art and vivid furnishings. When the weather is warm, ask to eat outside on the Dorsia terrace. Or top off a relaxed Sunday with a tower of delicate patisserie as afternoon tea. The next morning, a delicious breakfast buffet will be waiting for you. Dorsia Hotel and Restaurant is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
