“Top notch hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I've had the pleasure of staying here twice in the past month for business. The hotel on both occasions delivered consistently excellent service. The staff throughout your stay are attentive and are very helpful.
The hotel property is in a great location, close to the Central rail station so you can walk, and close to a very cool square (Lilla Torgand) with many restaurants and bars for evening entertainment.
Rooms are very nice size and exceptionally clean. If possible, ask for a room facing the street, although the interior rooms face a inner 'courtyard' with a grassy area that appears to be the roof over part of the lower floor.
Although a bit expensive, the breakfast is good and has a fair (standard European) variety of choices. It would be nice if you could order omelets or fried eggs, but they have scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and of course, meatballs.
I highly recommend this hotel if you will be in Malmo.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street are nice

The hotel is nice and centrally located. Nice ambiance and walking distance from the main square.
Breakfast was poor and amenity rooms poor. Otherwise ok for the price paid. You have to carry you baggage !!!

Thanks for taking the time to rate us on Tripadvisor. Would it be possible for you to mail me and specify what you lacked on the breakfast buffet and hopefully we'll be able to adjust it for your next visit with us.

This hotel has a TA sticker in the elevator calling it 'The Best Hotel in Sweden' and I have to agree!!! In a great location steps from both Lilla Torgand (resteraunts) and Stor Targett (main square) this hotel is central and a 5 min walk from the train statio. The reception staff are efficient, friendly and multilingual and the hotel modern in an elegant way. Our room was large (same room both times we stayed) and faced the inner area of grassed roofs over the conference rooms. It was quiet and we had 2 sets of french doors.
Breakfast was excellent with many choices of breads, meats, cheese, bacon sausage potatoes etc and a chef cooking eggs to order. Good coffee as well. Very good value and a lot cheaper than Copenhagen. (90 krona each way on the train - frequent trains to the airport).
Good bathroom and there is a make-up mirror if you look for it.
I would certainly reccommend this hotel and plan to stay there whenever I am in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the inner area are quieter.

Thanks for posting your feed-back on Tripadvisor.
We are still thrilled that we got the award for being the best hotel in Sweden on TA earlier this year, now it is up to ourselves and our happy guests to ensure we stay on top!
So whenever in Copenhagen - stay in Malmö and at the Renaissance!

Once again, thank you!

Have stayed in Malmo a gazillion times and normally stay in the same area as the Renaissance.

We were in the area and we decided to go on a last minute 1 night getaway. We did not have a reservation, just dropped in and got a good offer (double checked the web site but receptionist gave us the same price).

Like others have said, truly a solid hotel in an excellent location. Nice bed, nice Scandinavian designs and really surprised by the decent room size (not often you get this in Europe).

I didn't feel that breakfast was great though and could be better. Other experiences in Scandinavia have treated me to large breakfast buffets, this felt a little limited. Again, not bad, just not impressive.

Overall a good stay and we will be back.

A great hotel with an almost tranquil, calm atmosphere. Nice design elements while preserving materials of the original, very old building as well. Excellent bed, spacious room with high quality wooden floor (admitted, you might hear the people above you walking every now and then), very good breakfast. Friendly staff all over. Perfect, quiet location, yet in the middle of the old town. Quickly becoming one of my favorites.

What can I say? I love this hotel.

Jens and his staff have a real gem.

If you are in the Malmo, Lund or the Copenhagen area, this really should be your only hotel option.

Thanks once again for a great stay.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are a little quieter.

Situated right in the heart of the restaurant district in down town Malmo. Great hotel with smart modern rooms, good friendly staff and a knowledgable barman. Had a great time on business here. Next time in Malmo I know I will stay here.

Room Tip: 4th floor away from the street noise
