The hotel is a 550m walk from the central train station, which offers frequent trains to / from Copenhagen – the trains also stop directly under the check- in area of Copenhagen Airport, more convenience can’t be asked for. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants, bars and other hotels in the heart of the old town in Malmoe, a perfect location, Lilla torg only 20m from the hotel’s door. The hotel seems to have been made by combining a number of adjacent old restored buildings. Even though the “look and feel” of Renaissance is there, the hallways feature some inclines which transition the floor from one building to the other which had slightly different heights, and some odd toos and fros, giving the place a nice character under the modern veneer. I’ve stayed there a number of times, and none of the rooms has ever been just like the other – again, this lends character.
Staff are very good, very helpful, very professional - the Marriott training shows.
Rooms are generous, modern, well- appointed and have windows which open wide. I like a cool room with fresh air, not A/C, so this is a welcome feature which far too few hotels offer. There are inner rooms which are quieter, but I prefer the outer rooms and hearing the late night footfalls on the cobbled streets below. The bedding is very comfortable. The bathrooms are bright and functional, and have a heated floor which is more common in Scandanavia and should be adopted everywhere else, too! I don't know if there are some rooms with bathtubs but all the rooms I have stayed in had only a shower, so check if having a bath is important to you. Fit and finish are all top- quality and sparkling clean.
There is a small but adequate fitness centre. Breakfast is good, all the basics plus some very nice hand- carved smoked salmon and herrings in three different sauces. One odd thing was that there are no spoons in the place settings nor in the bins – maybe no one takes sugar in their coffee in Southern Sweden? Anyway, stirring with a knife worked well enough. For business or tourist visits, it’s hard to beat this hotel.
