IKEA fans will be surprised to know that there’s NO guarantee of Ikea Meatballs on the Ikea Hotel menu. 

You may find IKEA meatballs with potato puree, cream sauce, pickled cucumber and lingon on the menu. 

Or, you may not. 

The menu changes from season to season. 

But the IKEA menu does feature all the best seasonal foods, organic where possible, and modern Scandinavian influences.

You won’t be disappointed. 

(If eating Swedish Meatballs from Ikea is on your ‘ Best Things to do in Sweden ‘ bucketlist, visit the IKEA Museum restaurant, or the IKEA Almhult restaurant. Meatballs are ALWAYS on the menu at these places.)

Hot tip: Stop in the IKEA Museum Shop to find unique Ikea souvenirs & gifts too!

About IKEA Hotell restaurant

The restaurant is situated to the right of the entrance to the IKEA hotel. 

It’s open plan, with a stone fireplace the centrepiece. 

The tables and chairs, the tableware, AND the decorations are all from IKEA too, of course.

And the curtains separating the dining areas are IKEA style too. 

This restaurant is favoured by conference visitors, business travellers, and visitors to Almhult.

But, tellingly, locals love it for both the customer service and menu options too.

How to get to the Ikea Hotel in Almhult 

How to get from Copenhagen to Almhult

Älmhult in Sweden is easily reached by train or car from Copenhagen and Copenhagen Airport. 

The journey is approximately two hours.

By Train: 

Catch the Øresundtåg train. All trains stop at Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup), Malmö and Lund. (The train continues to Växjö and/or Kalmar.)

Tickets can be purchased at Copenhagen train station from the ticket counter, vending machines or online here or via Swedish railways. Tickets cost approximately SEK250 /€50 one-way. Our trip was included in our Eurail tickets. 

Once you arrive at the Almhult train station, walk up the stairs, then cross the airbridge in the direction AWAY from the town.

If you arrive after dark, it feels a little lonely and desolate, but don’t despair.

The hotel is not far at all.
