I've been to Malmo many times on account of often visiting family in Copenhagen. It's a great little town to shop and have a coffee, but this was the first time I stayed overnight.

Master Johan is distinctly Swedish, from the understated yet tasteful interior to the gentle smile of the front desk staff to the traditional blue china used at breakfast.

We were upgraded to a business room, very kind of the reception desk. The room was on the 4th floor in the corner a large bright space with an equally Swedish feel to it: a large wooden sleigh bed with a luxurious down duvet and delicate cotton linens; a large sitting area with white couches; even an office corner with a wooden desk and comfortable chair.

The best part was probably the bathroom simple while tiles with small diamond-shaped blue glass accents along the top and sparkling brass faucets and accessories. The added bonus was that you could plug your iPod in through the TV and listen to it through the speaker in the bathroom while relaxing in the bath...it's all in the details!

But it gets better still when you go downstairs for breakfast. It's served in a delve-service kitchen where you can choose from a variety of breads, spreads, cheese, meat, fruit, anything you can think of. Ah, and do you prefer your eggs boiled 3 minutes or 6? The choice of hot items freshly made on the stove just in front of you was impressive too.

I don't think a place like this even exists across the bridge in Copenhagen and certainly not for the same price.

Dear Juli,

I was so happy when I read you review. It felt like you reely understood what Master Johan stands for. We are mabye not the most modern hotel but we hope to be the most cozy.

Just like everyone else said, staff was friendly, breakfast was good, room was huge. Not the most modern hotel but everything was good, not exceptional but not much to complain about. One super annoying thing - the Internet logs you out every single time. I had to log in about 50 times over the course of two days... Completely unnecessary.

Very well run, peacful hotel in an excellent location. We had a generous sized room for the 3 of us. Very reasonably priced (for Sweden). Good breakfasts, and staff could not have been more helpful. Recommended, especially for families.

Lovely hotel. Solid, quiet and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Easy walking around the city and close to restaurants and stores. the breakfast buffet was good - I don't like a lot of fuss so it suited me. I would go back in a second.

Great hotel with very helpful staff. Free coffee all day which helps with high cost of Sweden! Right in town near Lilla Torg so you can walk everywhere. I would definately stay here again. Breakfast is fabulous and was included in price.

Room Tip: Take what you get
