“A wonderful find and a great place to stay”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

I was searching for places to stay in and around the Gothenburg area when I chanced upon the Koster Islands. And what a find.

I booked a single room with WC / Shower. The room was a suitable size for me with enough cupboard space. The hotel is a very short walk from the Harbour where there are regular ferry services to the mainland.

Within the hotel there is a bar and restaurant, and outside bar and restaurant if the weather is nice enough to sit outside. At my time of travelling, there was a heat wave which was unusual I was told.

Down by the Harbour there is a a very good restaurant, a grill bar for snacks during the day and a fish shop if you are renting a suite with a kitchen.

The beech is a short 5 min walk from the hotel, with shallow water areas for kids. If you enjoy walk, there are walking trains on both Sud Koster and Nord Koster. The islands are beautiful with stunning views.

I'm glad I found Hotel Koster. The staff were helpful and friendly, even with my poor Swedish. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

....you need to see Koster Island In Sweden, The Ekenes Hotel is well placed only 30m from The Sea, with a 180 degree amazing view. I have travelled the world a few times, but allwaysmake sure to return to Koster Island. The island is In The Center Of shrimp, lobsters, and seafood fishing, something you realize by visiting the numerous seafood resturants on both the Islands (Nord and Syd Koster)
The beutiful nature, the sea combined with breath taking sourendings is A-most-see experience.
I highly recommend a stay at Ekenes as your startingpoint for an unforgetteble vacation.
I will be back, as I have been for past 25 years:))

Koster Island is one of The most beautiful destinations in Scandinavian, with låta of narrow roads and NO cars. Didn't stay at The Hotel itseøf, but there is A lot of fun at the bar with guitar-player ripping Young, Stones and CCR. The harbour area is excellent for sailors like us and The Washrooms are excellent.

The location is perfect, 30 meters from the sea, with a stunning 180 degree view. Only 200 meters walk from the pier.
Beautiful (new?) apartment with two interconnecting bedrooms made this an apartment with 3 bedrooms.
Will be returning here many times in the years to come.

I had the privilege to enjoy a couple of days in these amazing tranquil surroundings, that Hotel Koster has to offer. After the stay I felt reenergized and calm. The nature is breathtaking with a variety of landscapes to look at, feeling the sea breeze is refreshing, truly the best of both worlds.
Staff was polite and accommodating, rooms where comfortable, food was exquisite. I whole heatedly would recommend a stay there. I surly will be returning to enjoy it even more.

We arrived at the island and hotel in the evening, and it just felt so good to be there. The apartment was perfect ... Brand new furniture, clean, very comfortable, and most of all ... An amazing view. Waking up for sunrise was definitely worth it. I would return anytime.

The hotel was not bad but was very pricey for what it was. It's a great location on a beautiful island. The staff were helpful and polite. The thing is the hotel does not really have many facilities - which is fine given where it is but a bit frustrating when you note how much you are paying for it. The outside bits of the hotel are fantastic with beautiful views.
