The airport coach takes 30 minutes to travel from the airport to Gothenburg city center, where you can disembark at the Nils Ericson bus terminal, which is closest to the hotel. You will find the buses directly outside the check-in hall at the airport. Buy bus tickets (approx. SEK 100 one way) either online, via text message or through ticket machines at the airport. You cannot pay with cash on board the coaches.

Taxis are located directly outside the international arrivals hall at Landvetter Airport. You can pay with credit cards in Swedish taxis. However, you should always inquire about and settle on a price before traveling because taxi prices are not regulated in Sweden and may vary greatly.

Getting to Radisson Blu Riverside Hotel
If you’re arriving at the hotel 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 line 16 toward Eketrägatan from the bus stop Nordstan, which is located between the Nils Ericson bus terminal / Central Station and Nordstan Shopping Mall. The stop on bus line 16 is Lindholmen; the trip will take about 10 minutes. Keep in mind that bus line 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.

If arriving by car from the city center, drive over the Götaälv Bridge and keep left toward Hjalmar Brantingsgatan. At the junction, keep left toward Öckerö / N Älvstranden / Hamnar / Säve / Biskopsgården. Turn left onto Brantingsmotet, and continue left onto the exit. Continue south onto Route 155 (Lundbyleden). Keep left onto Karlavagnsgatan, and then turn left onto Regnbågsgatan. At the roundabout, take the 1st exit and continue onto Lindholmsallén. Drive straight ahead toward the hotel, which will be on the left.
