The food and service is amazing, great place to kick back and relax. We had a day at the spa, drinks in the hot tub and then went across to the restaurant for a very tasty dinner. The staff spoke English and recommended what was local and there house dishes.

Perfect stop on a roadtrip between Malmö and Stockholm. Immaculate and modern. Very nice room, pool, spa, lovely restaurant well stocked bar/lounge with many vignette sitting areas. Service was slow at times (we actually had to look for a server twice) but worth the wait. Prices were fair and the setting was lovely. My wife and I would come back... More

Skansen offers everything you could wish for when visiting Öland. Nice lounges for relaxing, comfortable rooms, great restaurant(s), both indoor and outdoor seating and small pool area for relaxing. Perfect location for going either north or south of the island.

No attention at all from two waiters. No questions to the food, no questions to as we wanted more wine, dessert etc. Really bad. But once we where about to leave the waiter were eager to get us to sign

Real nice hotel, but the lack of trained employees spoiled the event. Let me give you an example. The night that there was EM football final, the restaurant was full but there was only 3 tired waiters on job and no one to attend bar. It was nearly impossible to get a drink or even pay the bill.

If you want to explore the sights (I recommend to concentrate on the archaeological sites) of the southern and northern parts of Öland in a couple of days, it is best to have a lodging in the centre. Hotel Skansen is a good choice with beautiful, clean, modern rooms. In comparison with the high room rates, the breakfast was quite... More

Good standard in the rooms. AC/heating worked well. Clean, friendly. Lived up to expectations for the room and surroundings. Ample parking during our visit but crowded when hotel had "special nights". Lovely lounge and coffee all day was a very good differentiator. Very comprehensive breakfast but "fine dining" was a little pretentious and a little pricey.

Very nice hotel at Åland near Kalmar. We had a room at the "new side" and it was really modern and nice! The lobby bar was excellent, they made me (36 weeks pregnant at that time) two non-alcoholic drinks which were both super! There was live music and a really relaxed atmosphere.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The green embankments, surrounding our park are the remains of a fortress, Farjestadens Skans. You are indeed in "the middle of history", here at Hotel Skansen. The fortress is from the early 1600's and was then called "Krakeskars Skans". It probably played an important part at the time of the Danish invasion 1611. Around 1700 a district-courthouse was constructed inside the fortress. The buildings you see today were built 1811, and while they originally served as a courthouse, they have since 1901 been a hotel. We will do our very best to make your stay comfortable and joyful. Is anything missing or is it something you desire? Please let us know - We will do our best to fulfil your wishes. The Hotel Hotel Skansen have 79 rooms - 24 double rooms in "Tingshuset" including 6 suites with Jacuzzi, and 55 rooms in the main building, where 36 of them are brand new and ready to stay in from may 2015. All rooms with satellite TV and telephone. A modern hotel with a personal atmosphere and old charm. Family owned and managed. The Restaurant Dining rooms for up to 500 persons and a beautiful summer veranda. SPA In "Tingshuset" you find a relaxation area with indoor pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. We have 6 beautiful rooms for spa treatments and an exercise room in the basement. Location Centrally located in Farjestaden, close to the Oland bridge, with just 300 meters to the nearest beach, close to the shopping centre and in the middle of the island of Oland. ... more   less
