Design & Boutique Feeling: An Exciting Mix of Times
There’s no denying that you feel at home the second you enter Åhus Gästis. I’m sure the place’s tradition of service has a lot to do with it. Long before it was considered one of the best boutique hotels in Skane, it was already a cosy guesthouse. As early as 1737, you could enjoy a meal for the price of 12 öre, the centesimal subdivision of the krona. Back then, renting a room for a night was just 4 öre. You can imagine that the prices are slightly higher now, yet the charm and soul remain!
This impressive yellow inn leaves a stately yet homey impression, with beautiful views everywhere. On one side, the lovely terrace overlooks the river; on the other side, the beautiful houses await. The architecture is well preserved, while the décor is full of little details from past and present. Sturdy tradition and modern splashes of colour get together here for a home-like experience away from home!
Room & Other Facilities – A Story on Every Room
The recently-renovated attic rooms are undoubtedly among the reasons Åhus Gästis makes the list of best boutique hotels in Skane. All attic 8 rooms were refurbished in 2019 under the eye of interior designer Lena Nyholm and local suppliers such as Ateljé Lyktan, who created a truly unique project. Each room has a unique concept, with exciting, and beautiful colour palettes.
I was honoured to stay in Room 17, the playful hipster gem of the bunch. The ceiling beams, the fun colour combination, and the cute desk overlooking the Helge river were the highlights!
I had the opportunity to see all the other rooms and I was overcome with happiness. My favourite was the Flower Room, a dream in pink and purple hues but I also loved the forest room with inspiration from the jungle mixed with animal prints. However, there’s enough variety for everyone to have their own pick. Just ask yourself, how do you want to sleep when staying in Åhus Gästis?
Staying at this lovely hotel in ahus Sweden feels a little like moving in with a friend. The entire building has a welcoming vibe, and there are many areas to explore.
