We spent a wonderful week-end at Hotel Jarvsobaden. This is a lovely unique hotel with a lot of history and character and with a very scenic location in Jarvso. The service is excellent and the traditional food served with mainly local produce is the very best, an excellent buffet. The hotel's 9 hole golf course and SPA added to the...

I don't give 5 stars very often but this place deserves it IF you are looking for a comfortable, old style spa/hotel in the Swedish tradition. The traditional food is buffet style and excellent both in terms of quantity, quality and price. The rooms are simple and comfortable and the ambience is charming. The staff are also friendly and warm....

We stayed here as a late aniversary trip for two nights, as part of an organized tour of the World Heritage-awarded Hälsingegårdar. We were given a beautiful mini-suite (room 23) with it's own balcony in a wing adjoining the main building. Järvsöbaden is filled with period furniture and details, just how we like it! The staff were friendly, helpful and...

This hotel has a very intimate and friendly charm. It is set in beautiful surroundings in Järvsö. The place has an interesting history. The building is traditional Swedish, the rooms plain but comfortable. The food is excellent och the owner-staff very welcoming.

Dear Guest, Thank you for posting such a nice review! Yes, the hotel is quite old, over 110 years and still run by the same family who take great pride in offering genuine Swedish hospitality and tradition.

Excellent traditional swedish food. Nice and welcoming staff. Great relaxing spa. We spent Christmas here and enjoyed every minute. If you want to discover a traditional swedish guesthouse - this must be one of the best. It is like coming home to the family who has owned it for four generations. Not much action - just relaxing and good.

There has been an inn on this spot since the 16th century - history always appeals to me enormously. The current family-run building has undergone many renovations, and is in excellent condition, whilst still retaining its quaint, Swedish Old Worlde charm. Each room is individually decorated, and warm and cosy, with deliciously soft linen and comfortable beds, and a modern,...

I have stayed and dined at Järvsöbaden many times from the 1960's and onwards, and it is amazing to see how the hotel has been able to maintain its remarkably high standards oven the years. Coming here is quite like going 50 or 80 years back in time. This is "touring in style", yet less expensive than could be expected....

My husband & I were in Jarvso, so that my husband could mountain bike. This hotel was a stone's throw away from the bike park. We stayed only for a night. Walking into the hotel, my first impression was that it was museum-like. Not sterile, but stepping back into time. For a standard European-sized hotel room, it was clean. The...

This place has preserved the old Swedish 'pensionat', a hotel with boarding that was verk popular in the fifties (when I was a kid). Staff in the reception make you feel really at home and give you a personal welcome. Rooms probably differ a bit, ours was rather small but quite ok. What is most impressive are the common areas...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Hotel Jarvsobaden, originally founded in 1905 as a spa hotel by the forefather of the 3rd and 4th generation Pehrson, who are now running the hotel. In 1935, the old health facilities turned into a more cultivated family hotel. For more than 100 years this flagship hotel has been run with great joy and pride by the same family. Renovations have been gradually made and today Jarvsobaden is a fully modern conference hotel, with high standards of tradition and genuine hospitality. It has become a favorite place for many guests to return to year after year, both summer and winter. Hotel Jarvsobaden is situated in Halsingland, one of Sweden's most beautiful areas of forests and lakes with opportunities for many different activities. ... more   less
