Each room and the common areas (hallways, restaurant, etc.) are decorated with Kost-Boda glass art. It truly is like staying in a glass art museum. The restaurant was excellent, but probably a bit too formal for us. Nevertheless, the dinner food was excellent. The breakfast (included in the price) was topnotch. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The spa was... More

I wouldn't expect such a nice spa-hotel in the middle of now where. The hotel is thoroughly decorated with Kosta Boda glass art pieces, most of them available for purchase. The rooms are really nice, particularly the bathrooms. The restaurant is nice and the food is good, by Swedish standards. The midsommar lunch was really nice. The spa is also... More

The room was great and decorated with glass-art. We stayed in the Valleian-section and the room had some great pieces on display by him. Comfortable and nice. The SPA however was very average and gave more the impression of a swedish "simhall". The glass art is everywhere and gives the hotel and SPA a great feeling and vibe.

We had a modern twinbed room with an extra bed for our 11 year old daughter. We were all impressed by the glass art in the hotel. Every hotel room corridor is like a gallery where different designers and their work is presented. All public areas, as the resataurant, the reception and the spectacilar glass bar, is furnished with designed... More

The Kosta Boda Art hotel is located in the middle of the glassblowing district, steps away from the namesake glassblowing factory and various glass outlet shops. Its unique styling approach, with individually decorated rooms representing a single artist's glass pieces, adds to the experience of a stay in Glasriket. The hotel has glass art pieces in all public spaces, up... More

Stayed two nights at this hotel. Being married to a Swede I love Kosta Boda glass, so was really excited to visit this hotel. I wasn't disappointed at all. The whole place is just littered with works of art and all the bedrooms are themed by the various glass artists. The swimming pool and blue bar are visual feasts. The... More

What a fascination - to see glass Art taken to this level was pure inspiration with a sense of joy and amazement. Everything from the rooms, to the bar to the food took on an artistic twist that made the stay amongst the most memorable I have experienced.

My husband, adult daughter and I spent one night in this beautiful hotel. Glass art is exhibited everywhere in this hotel from the lobby to the individual rooms, the dining rooms, the bar, the pool and hallways. We came to blow glass in the Kosta Boda school and everyone was very accommodating and friendly to us. The outlet stores for... More

My daughters and I had a lovely time in this spa hotel! Very nice and interestingly designed rooms. Great spa. One pool has an interesting glass exhibition. Very comfortable ! Lovely bar and good restaurant. The only problem is that we didn't find the staff very service-minded or even smiling at us. We had the fish spa treatment. The spa... More
