Faktum Hotels

Faktum Hotels is not a real hotel where you can book real hotel accommodation. It’s a smart way to support Gothenburg’s street newspaper, Faktum.

We work to arouse debate and opinion about homelessness and isolation, but above all we provide those most in need with an occupation.

This helps them to take a step towards a more structured life, as the work of a salesperson involves responsibility, routine and the opportunity for a positive social exchange. Things that are vitally important when trying to find somewhere to live. Or build a life, for that matter.

Many thanks to Håkan Ludwigson for the photographs and to Forsman & Bodenfors for the creativity and to
Thomson Interactive Media for producing the website.

Faktum Hotels

Gothenburg has about 3,400 homeless people.
Most of them find a roof over their heads
with a friend or at a refuge, but some
sleep in the open air.

We have chosen ten of the places where they
might spend the night – and made it pos-
sible for you to book them. Just like any hotel.

You can book one for yourself, or as a gift
for somebody else. Either way the money
goes to our work for homeless and
socially vulnerable people.
