Malmö is a quite unexpected destination for me. I’ve been in Stockholm quite often but Malmö, it was my first time.
Actually, I came here on my own, without my lover, for a watch collector annual gathering.
There are no Starwood hotels so I had to pick up another brand hotel this time. I checked Trip Advisor, as usual, and made a decision to go for Marriott’s Renaissance.
Prior to book, I called the hotel to make sure I could have a balcony that would allow me to smoke as the hotel is 100% non smoking.
Dates of stays:
From July 27th to July 29th, 2012
At zero minutes walking from a very busy and trendy square, you will find all you need from bars, restaurants and shops.
It’s looking very “intimate” and I must say that the first impression is that it is a “small” hotel. And, in fact it is.
As usual, I called the hotel prior booking to confirm I could have a balcony because I’m a smoker. There are only 4 bedrooms with a balcony and I was lucky because one was assigned to me.
Checking in was fast but I must say I was the only guest to do so and only one person/position was available.
My primal request was fulfilled.
I would call the room an average superior room in terms of space and features. But with the tiny balcony it made the trick: I was able to enjoy a smoke from time to time and still didn’t feel oppressed when staying at my desk in the room.
The Air Conditioning/Heating in the room:
A nice space, large enough, with a single sink, a bath with hand shower
Amenities are not the best one I got but it was OK.
I would rate the bed 3/5.
Fast and easy because I used in room check out.
If not, there was a line and still only one person on duty on the Sunday so it might be a pain sometimes.
I really liked:
The area and the hotel in general.
It is rated Trip Advisor best hotel of Malmö but I think it is a good, even really good hotel, but nothing special that deserves such a badge.
I don’t think I would pick this one again if I ever go to Malmö again.
I really disliked:
Nothing…just average in general.
All the best,
