Far away from the hustle of bustle of major cities and tourist destinations, lies a small rural town called Älmhult. This is where IKEA was born in 1943, founded by Ingvar Kamprad. Did you know about their hotel?
We’ve always driven by this hotel and wondered what it would be like to stay there. It’s easy to miss, not the most inviting hotel from the outside, and kind of shunned to the side.
