Located in Kosta Boda with its almost 300-year-old history of glass blowing, it comes as no surprise that the town’s
hotel also has something to do with glass. The glassworks was founded back in 1742 by Anders Koskull and Georg
Bogislaus Staël von Holstein, two officers in Karl XII’s army. Today, Orrefors-Kosta Boda glassworks is one of Sweden’s most internationally known brands and the area is often referred to as the Kingdom of Crystal. Kosta Boda Art Hotel opened in 2009, with New Wave Group as a stable long-term owner. The hotel can be described as a
showroom for glass, and has proved to be a successful and highly praised concept.
