As a hotel guest you have free access to sauna and gym and we also have a very popular restaurant Ester Kök & Bar. The names John Bauer and Ester is in memory of the famous artist John Bauer (1882-1918) and his wife Ester Ellqvist (1880-1918). They had a fondness for the nature, which we share with them and are aiming for our guests to experience through the food and beverage. We are offering a seasonal menu with a huge focus on locally produced and organic commodities. If you visit John Bauer Hotel during Christmas we can offer our delicious and traditional Swedish Christmas table.

Apart from a wonderful and tasty restaurant, we also offer great accommodation. The rooms are newly renovated with fresh, tasteful designs and super comfortable beds. Depending on what you prefer, we offer a lot of different room categories. We have our very popular Japan and Africa themed rooms, and if you want to spoil yourself a bit more we can recommend our luxurious suites. It is a fantastic room with an interesting interior from the designers Elisabeth and Judith from Levande Lejon design. Most of the rooms are designed inspired by John Bauers art. We have some of his art on the walls and lush textiles from Missoni. All of the linens are 100% cotton and all the rooms have TV, desk, free Wi-Fi and kettle with tea and coffee.

If you arrive by car, we have a convenient secure car park for a small cost (we recommend to pre-book). Jönköping is located right in between Sweden’s bigger cities Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö and that makes us a great city to host your conference.
