Hotell Gästis

Top choice hotel in Varberg
Image by

This one-of-a-kind hotel is bursting with quirky details including an elevator shaft covered in pulp-fiction covers and the basement Lenin Baths (open to non-guests), featuring hot and cold pools, a massage area and an anachronistic giant candlelit Jacuzzi. Cosy rooms come with shelves full of books, and a dinner buffet is included.

The bathhouse is a replica of the 19th-century St Petersburg version inside a former girls' boarding school.
