THE BED: Hastens beds are hand-made in Sweden. The beds are spring-based and their comfort layer(s) can consist of horsehair, wool, cotton, flax – no foam or latex. Hastens was founded in 1852 and their beds are in the luxury to ultra-luxury mattress category.
The Hastens bed report below is based on at least 26 owner / consumer reviews of several models including Vividus, frame (Superia, Excel, Marquis), continental (2000T, Proferia, Auroria, Luxuria) and adjustable. The data was gathered using diverse, credible sources.
|Owner satisfaction||c||Hästens beds overall have 73% owner satisfaction ( ). Many far less expensive mattress brands have similar or better owner satisfaction than Hastens.
|Durability||b-||Durability is generally superior to that of most other innerspring-based mattresses. However, owners report that the top pad needs replacing about every 4-7 years.|
|Longevity||b+||Because the top pad can be replaced, the bed can conceivably have a longer lifespan than most beds.|
|Price||f||Hastens beds are typically priced $6,000-$30,000+. Owner experience data somewhat suggests that higher priced Hastens models have better owner satisfaction than lower priced models. Maintenance costs, such as replacing the top pad, can be pricey. Owners generally say that the benefits received from the bed do not seem to fully match the price, i.e., value is questionable.|
|Less pain||c+||Pain and pressure point relief is not a clear strength of the bed. See mattresses and pain relief for general analysis.)|
|Firmness variety||b||Firmness can vary by model. Consumers often report that their Hastens bed is more medium or soft than firm.|
|Motion isolation||b||Hastens appears to perform better than average in regard to localizing movement from one person so the other person is not disturbed.|
|No initial odor / off gassing||b+||There are no more than a few reports regarding a smell coming from the mattress when it is new.|
|No sleeping hot||a||There are no complaints of the Hastens bed acting as a trap for the sleeper's body heat.|
|No noise||a||There are no complaints of noise coming from the bed.|

|Lightweight||d-||Hastens is likely one of the heaviest beds available. Moving or transporting it is difficult.|
|Availability||d||Hastens has retailers around the world, but only about a dozen in the United States.|
|Warranty||b-||Hastens has a 25-year warranty that covers the mattress and springs, but not the topper. (See mattress warranties: what you should know.)|
|Return policy||c||Consumers report that return policies can vary by store. (See returning a mattress: what you should know.)|
|Customer service||c||Customer service, especially after the sale, can be a problem and not what one might expect from an expensive bed, several owners report.|
