Getting to the hotel by bus

If you are arriving by bus from one of the airports, disembark at the Nils Ericson bus terminal. From there, the most efficient way to the hotel is to use bus number 16 toward Eketrägatan from the Nordstan bus stop which is located between the Nils Ericson bus terminal/Central Station and Nordstan Shopping Mall. Your stop is Lindholmen and the trip will take about 10 minutes. Keep in mind that bus 16 is operated by Västtrafik, a public transportation system, and not the airport, so you’ll have to purchase separate tickets for each bus trip. For your convenience, the hotel reception desk sells transportation tickets.
