Staying at the Kosta Boda Art Hotel was the experience of a lifetime. The hotel is a work of art, with each hallway, room, etc. filled with museum quality glass objects created by Kosta Boda's most famous artists. There is a wonderful spa and pool area, and the pool includes underwater displays of glass art. The Glass Bar is a... More

Different from the norm but not amazing, yes there are lots of pieces of glass around the place but most are for sale, and its piece you kond find in a shop. The glass bar is kind of funky but I would not say wow. It is like a cross between a motel and a gallery but not a lot... More

Beautiful HOtel in the Swedish countryside. Full of amazing glass sculptures, works of art from the Kosta Boda Glassworks. Fantastic dinner and breakfast with great choices. A little on the expensive side but well worth it.

Probably the only reason you'd go to Kosta if you're from overseas, is to visit the Kosta Boda glass making factory! They do have outlet shopping there as well but that's probably not why someone from overseas would visit! It's a very dull drive from Stockholm to Kosta so my advice is to take the flight as the drive is... More

We visited The Kosta Boda Art hotel with a group of friends, mostly to get away from town and have a relaxing time, eat some good food and do some shopping the day after.. We did not get any immediate help from the receptionist, they just were not interested in helping us to check in. it took a while, so... More

We visited The Kosta Boda Art hotel during the holidays (december 2013) and it does have a nice spa. Especially nice is the large pool which contains glass art underneath the surface - fun! The food is good but overpriced. A main course was 265 swedish kronor which is a lot and the quality of the food did not live... More

We spent one night in this amazing hotel with Swedish/Danish friends, their booking, while visiting the glassmaking area in Sweden. The hotel is different to anything that we have stayed in visiting many parts of the world- the glass bar with its many shades of blue glass is unique. The table, and we took the tasting menu, was superb with... More

I stayed at the Glass Hotel for ten nights. I was very disappointed by the poor quality of receptionists for the money I paid. They were not at all helpful. Maybe they are in (to) Swedish, but to a minority American, they were rather rude. Every time I asked them something in English, they appear tired or not happy. On... More

This hotel is really amazing. From ground to roof it is incredibly designed and packed with glass art. The pool areas (indoor and outdoor!) are also beautifully designed and very relaxing. The restaurant is excellent. But still there is room for improvement: Breakfast is not up to par.

We stayed only 1 night - which we regret - we would have liked staying longer ,-)) .... the hotel is an art exhibition of its own ,-)). the rooms are decorated depending on the glass artist of the hotel wing, they are maybe a bid small - but everything there, what you would expect (2 beds, 2 loung chairs,...
