I strongly recommend to stay @ Millas Villa. Great, clean & modern design rooms. Quiet & a great breakfast. Just book👍 We have tried different hotels in Lund - this is absolutely the best. We stayed in a double room for 1 night.
It was our second stay at Millas Villa. We arrived early from an overnight flight and needed to get some rest. The staff was very accommodating and let us get into our room early. We will definitely be back.
Just stayed at Millas Villa – an affordable alternative to most typical hotels in Lund – if you don’t mind staying a couple of clicks from Lund's cozy historic district. It’s like a hotel, but housed in a huge villa and therefore also ostensibly more homely. There's no reception or other facilities more traditional hotels provide. Personally, I missed nothing. I stayed in room 301, a large, apartment-like "suite" with a kitchenette, a big bathroom, and a generously sized bedroom. Being able to spread out my stuff is always nice, considering how small hotel rooms usually are. Being able to roll out my yoga mat was sweet, too. The double bed was comfy and the overall country styled interior decor pleasant. Not my style, but not disturbing, either. Wall sockets on both sides of the bed was great and the whole place felt clean and fresh. I stayed for two nights and between them, I noticed that the cleaning staff had forgotten to lock my door after finishing up in there. I realize there was a minimal risk of any consequences, but it was nonetheless a little unnerving. Millas breakfast staff were friendly and the buffet offered a relatively wide selection. You can even have scrambled or fried eggs if you want – without it costing anything extra. What will cost you, however, is staying beyond the 10 am checkout time. For each additional hour you choose to stay, Milla charges you SEK100/$10. I think the 10 o’clcok checkout is rather early to begin with. And considering that you can’t check in until 3:00pm, the rate you pay allows for a 19 hour stay – as compared with most hotels I frequent (25-30/year) that offer both an earlier checkin and a later checkout time. The location is residential and there’s no convenience store in the immediate neighborhood. Nearest would be Lund’s central station. Staying in a residential area means you get to enjoy a peaceful environment. On the other hand, you will have to walk/ride back and forth if you want to explore Lund’s historic district. It’s not a long walk, but still. A friend recommended the nearby pizzeria, La Cosina and so I gave it a try. The restaurant itself was fine and the staff genuinely friendly. But the pizza chef that evening was absolutely clueless to what making a tasty pizza is all about. Swedes tend to define a good pizza by how fluffy the dough is. While the texture of a properly baked pizza certainly plays a role, how the tomato sauce is made and the blend of herbs and spices are significantly more important factors. The pizza at La Cosina was bland at best. Tasteless, really. And definitely unworthy its exorbitant price tag. The Italian beer was good, though. Making food should never be a mechanical process. There has to be a level of passion and genuine interest in creating pie that smells great, tastes wonderful and leaves you wanting more. Much more. Back to Millas Villa. I totally get that by letting guests self-checkin and self-checkout, the owners are cutting costs. That’s fine and makes perfect business sense. I do miss the social interaction at a front desk, but can live without it. Considering the current pandemic and how the virus could allegedly spread via hard surfaces, I think there should definitely be a hand sanitizer immediately after entering the front door (which, incidentally is located at the back of the property) and being forced to both press the keypad and the door's handle. Hopefully this is just an oversight and that if any of the owners read this, they will see my point and immediately address this appropriately. So, if you want a little more space (at least in room 301) and a lower price, and, you’re cool living a bit outside of the center of Lund – and don’t mind the somewhat early checkout time, Millas Villa is probably a good option for you. I enjoyed my stay and have no regrets. But I will opt to stay closer to town next time around. Like a later checkout time, I think it’s worth paying a little extra for.

I am dependent on the reviews I read here on TripAdviosr when choosing where to sleep and where to dine. My ambition for reviewing hotels and restaurants is to provide fellow travelers – and indirectly, hotel management and restauranteurs – with my experiences and insightful critique. On several occasions, hotel and restaurant owners, General Managers and F & B Directors at hotels I’ve stayed at and reviewed here have gotten in touch to thank me personally for my contributions, opinions, and suggestions.…
The place is located conveniently close to the train station in a quiet neighborhood. We ordered an early arrival and the room was ready when we arrived. The room – the deluxe room on the ground floor – was cozy and clean. The breakfast was very good and the staff was friendly. Highly recommended!
The rooms are in a renovated house/villa, which makes it so cozy to stay at! Adorable big kitchen to enjoy your breakfast or a cup of coffee during the day. The city center is only a 10 min walk by foot.
