PM & Vänner

Award-winning PM & Vänner Hotel is a first class hotel with an international character based on the gastronomic profile and image that PM has regarding food, service and its wine cellar. The philosophy of the hotel is made up by the cornerstones of forest, lake and meadow, and the hotel's decor reflects this in terms of materials such as limestone from the island Öland and wooden floors from Småland.

Ekebacken Hotel

Ekebacken is sometimes called Sweden's most secret design hotel. The facility was originally built by Skogsindustrin. Only the best was good enough, and they ventured for design of good quality. The interior decorations at Villa Wegner are original from the 60's, and it is possible to get a guided tour there or hold meetings. All the furniture is signed Hans J Wegner. The whole hotel has a 60's design, both in terms of architecture and certain furniture. Website only in Swedish.

IKEA Hotell

At IKEA Hotell, you are not offered small interior details. The entire hotel is IKEA - both the well-known products and the homely feeling. Great and accessible design, simply put.
Ingvar Kamprad, the founder of IKEA, opened the hotel in the mid-60s. His idea was that after a day of shopping and inspiration, you need a place to eat and rest. Isn’t that true?
IKEA Hotell has 254 rooms and 1 kitchen - not the world's largest hotel, but the only IKEA hotel in the world. The restaurant offers classic dishes with flavours of Småland, created from local ingredients from the province’s pantry.
Do you want to see more designs and more classics? Across the street, the IKEA Museum offers both history and nostalgia in what was the first IKEA store.

Hotell Hulingen

Music put Hultsfred on the map, and at Hotell Hulingen, music is in the walls. The rooms are decorated in a music-theme, and the photos on the walls are taken at gigs in Hultfred. The ambition is to create a warm and welcoming environment - with focus on music. In the bar, you can listen to live music all year round.
