Top Hotels in Växjö
PM & Vänner Hotel – best hotel in Växjö
This hotel is situated in the middle of center of Växjö. Finished in 2014, (everything still smells fresh and newly built) it is the most modern hotel in Växjö. Part of the restaurant is a wine cellar with one of the widest selection of quality wines in Scandinavia. If you don’t know which wine to choose from the list, the current Swedish sommelier champion will help you find the best fit for your dinner. Further highlights: the roof bar ‘TAK’, inviting a great view over the rooftops over Växjö, and the rooftop outdoor swimming pool.
PM & Vänner – prices and booking
This castle will make you feel like a prince or princess. It is just about 100 years old (looks older, doesn’t it?!) and situated in proximity to the lake Trummen and the idyllic campus of Linnaeus university. A beautiful surrounding for walks. Within 45 Minutes you reach the city of Växjö, on foot.
Hotels in the city center of Växjö
Apart from PM & Vänner and the further below mentioned Hotel Esplanad, you find the following hotels in the center of Växjö.
Clarion Collection Hotel Cardinal
Just a few meters distance to the main shopping street Storgatan. A classic high quality hotel (belongs to the Nordic Choice hotel group). While not as shiny as PM & Vänner it yet offers a warmer style. If you want to spend some nights in the center of Växjö but don’t fancy the glamour and prices of PM & Vänner, then Hotel Cardinal is the right choice for you. The interior is probably appreciated mostly by people age 55+. (Apart from the painting you can see in the image above, the one on the wall behind the bed.) ;)
Hotel Cardinal – prices and booking
Modern design. This hotel is situated directly next to the concert hall Konserthus. On the other side of the street you find the city library Stadsbiblioteket and just next to it you can enjoy contemporary art in the art exhibition Konsthall. So, it’s the perfect hotel for musicians, intellectuals and artists who are a bit lazy on their feet.
Elite Park Hotel – prices and booking
Located at the market place in Växjö. Its restaurant Lagerlunden is placed in a beautifully sculputred glas cube connected directly to the old building. A pleasant contrast to look at. The ideal hotel in Växjö for those who want to spend a wild party night in the hotel’s own night club Grace, and try to avoid a long distance walk while drunk.
Elite Stadshotellet Växjö – prices and booking
This hotel is the ideal choice if you want to hold a conference in Växjö. Nothing is exceptional with this hotel, and nothing is bad. It’s pretty much like the Volkswagen Passat among the hotels in Växjö.
Best Western Royal Corner – prices and booking
Hotel close to shopping center Grand Samarkand
A few kilometers outside of Växjö, directly next to the shopping center Grand Samarkand. This hotel doesn’t look that great from the outside. But it’s the inner values that count, right? Once you are inside, an extraordinarily nice team behind the reception desk will welcome you. This hotel is a great choice for your business trip to Växjö.
Scandic Växjö – prices and booking
Idyllic hotels close to a lake in Växjö
The hostel in Växjö. You can get typical hostel rooms and normal, hotel-like rooms. This house is located in beautiful surrounding, directly at the lake where families from all over Växjö go to have a swim during summer. It also is a great starting point for hiking and a boat trip. Close by you can play mini-golf or on a large playground.
Cute and idyllic. From the veranda you have a great view over the near by lake while having some pastry from the house-own pastry shop. They also offer small cabins close to the lake. It’s the optimal place if you actually would have liked to stay at Evedal Hostel but would rather read your book while not being disturbed by screaming children and the sound of kids jumping into water.
Toftastrand – prices and booking
They have great cakes.
