Elite Hotel Stadshotellet, Luleå

Built in the 1890s, the Elite Hotel Stadshotellet’s 100-year-old air of elegance has been carefully maintained while the interior has been given a modern face-lift with simple, tasteful decor throughout. Get ready to be wowed as you enter the breakfast room for your morning cup of coffee, the French renaissance styled room is stunningly decorated with beautiful crystal chandeliers that have white and gold detail running throughout. If a more casual setting is more your thing, the Bishops Arms pub offers a variety of beers and whiskeys to keep you warm on those cold winter nights.


Overlooking the city park and north harbour this hotel is situated on Luleå’s main street, Storgatan. Set in the heart of the city it is ideal for exploring, and couldn’t be easier to get out to visit the many highlights around the archipelago. Including floating over ice on a hovercraft or visiting the picturesque UNESCO church town of Gammelstad

your room

It’s classic comfort at the Elite. A room you can rely on to provide you with all the comforts and luxuries with a dash of impeccable style; think soft hues of browns and creams that create a perfectly relaxing ambience. Our tip; ask for a sea view, it’s well worth it.

why we like it

We think that when it comes to location you couldn’t be better placed than at the Elite. It’s ideal for all the fabulous day trips in the surrounding area. Being in the heart of the city has access to all the best restaurants and bars, which can become fairly tricky to get to in the thick of winter if you aren’t in the centre of town.
