Not the best rooms in the world. Not the most polished fittings in the building. Hardware? Maybe 4-5 out of 10, with breakfast an exceptional 8. But the staff...probably the best I've ever experienced. Professional, helpful and genuine people out of this world. Would definitely stay with them again!

Fantastic location between Malmo Central Station and the old town's picturesque streets and lively Lilla Tord square. Very clean and comfortable rooms, exhaustive breakfast options and unfailingly excellent standards of service from young, keen staff, make this the sensible option for business or leisure travellers.

I got a very good price for the nights we stayed, and the breakfast was excelent, nothing to complain about.
The room I got was not very big, but sufficient, and the location of the hotel is in the center of town right next to the other hotels.

A great hotel if you are travelling by train because you can wheel your suitcase easily the short distance from the station and save on taxi fares and hassle. It's also very close to the centre of Malmö.
The bed was comfortable and the room a decent size and the breakfast basic but fine, so it is good value for money, by Swedish price levels.
The hotel has original decor from the 1940s which is charmingly retro. It was amazing to feel the weight and soundproofiing effect of the solid wooden door into the bathroom, for instance. Makes one realize what quality we have lost over the decades. However many rooms are still carpeted and this is not nice. There is good retro (architectural details) and bad retro, which is a carpet that has been waiting for Godot for the past 60 years and looks like it has memories of of the feet of thousands of travelling salesmen. Please, remove all the carpets from the rooms!! I would stay again but would insist on a non-carpeted room. The first room I was shown was carpeted and smelt musty and unfresh, even after 4 hours with the window open, so I changed rooms and the second, uncarpeted room was okay. Another tip to management: make sure the teabags etc. are replenished every day! Not to do so just looks pennypinching.

Room Tip: boycott carpets in rooms!

Brilliant location, very short walk from train station, and to the big square. Good map provided with main sightseeing areas, I would recommend going out past the small square, to the park, then beyond this to the sea with good views of the Torso building. Can be done in an afternoon and was very pleasant. Staff were welcoming and helpful, rooms fine, clean and with a kettle, and an excellent breakfast spread including meatballs, cereals, bacon (HP sauce!), cold meats, seeds, fruit etc. However the best part was that we stayed a Saturday night and check out on Sunday was 6pm, with breakfast til 12. Absolutely brilliant and very welcome as we had to get the train to Copenhagen airport at about 5pm. We did a weekend break with Friday night in Copenhagen and Saturday in Malmo, we paid less here for this 4 star than for a basic, shared bathroom place in Copenhagen. Great value and very highly recommended on a Saturday night. That said that town itself seemed a little lacking in vibe of an evening...

Price of beer in Malmo was extreme (even compared to Copenhagen) - not the hotels fault though!

I really liked this hotel. It had just about everything right:
- wooden floor in the bedrooms
- plenty of electrical outlets in the bedrooms
- kettle for boiling water in the bedrooms, along with proper milk
- proper hangers in the wardrobe

Not only that, the staff were very helpful.

The one thing I thought was odd was the weight of the bedroom door. It was hefty. I am not sure if a frail person could open it themselves but I am sure the hotel staff would help if requested.

I spent there 4 nights last December. The price was 1300 SEK for 1 night in a junior suite size room(company rate).
The staff was attentive and willing to help even when I was trying to plan a short sightseeing trip. There is a gym, that is maybe not breathtaking but spacey.
The location is in the center of Malmo, there are many hotels in the vicinity however, so a vast choice.
Food was on a high Scandinavian level. I appreciated it a lot
