Scandic Stortorget
Ranked #25 of 37 Hotels in Malmo
Reviewed September 21, 2012

In the middle of city centre, just a short stone throw from a lot of restaurants. With it's high ceilings it has a cozy old feeling though it seem very well maintained. The reception dis allways help with a smile. A good "scandinavian" breakfast buffet. But both as a business hotel and a starting point for exploring the area as tourist the location is superb.

What we did miss was training possibilites. A couples of spinning bikes were placed in the basement.

Wonderful place to stay in when in malmö. Friendly staff, nice rooms, beautiful breakfast, great location close to the central station and near stortorget and nice pubs and cafees.
The room gies the convenience and comfort you need, a real minibar, pillows, shampoo, etc.

We arrived after a 30+ hour journey via Sydney/Kuala Lumpur/Amsterdam/Copenhagen, and it was of little surprise our luggage didn't make it all the way with us.

After walking the two blocks from the Centralstation to Stortoget, we found the Rica placed ideally next to the main square, and the gorgeous Lilla Torg, a bustling smaller square full of restaurants and bars.

The receptionist informed us our room wasn't ready (it was only 9am so we weren't expecting it to be) but very kindly let us use the showers in the basement gym/sauna.

Throughout our albeit one night stay, the receptionist was incredibly welcoming, and gave us continual updates as to whether our bags had turned up, alas, they hadn't.

After a walk we came back to the hotel and picked up our keys, the room, while on the small side was very well presented, however the double bed was very snug.

The classic black and white tiled bathroom was sparking clean, and all the neccesary amenities were there.

Breakfast was an impressive buffet of hot and cold, however I was surprised the kitchen didn't know what a poached egg was.

While only there for one night, and despite spending most of our time enjoying what a glorious town Malmo is (in mid July, I can imagine it'd be somewhat different in the depths of winter) I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough.

I would say I'd definitely use this hotel again if we went back to Malmo, but if you've spent two days there, chances are, you've seen pretty much all you need to see.

Standardroom is quite small. Beds are comfortable. There are a lot of small things in the room that you may need as bath robe, slippers, shoehorn, umbrella etc. There is also a cooker if you want tea or coffee. The breakfast buffee was very good. The location is perfect. Just around the corner you will find plenty of restaurants. It's also very near the train station. Staff at reception desk very welcoming.

The room was nicely decorated, but very small/cramped and lacking several features expected in Swedish hotels, no complimentary showergel/shampoo and most importantly, no air condition!! The effect of a small room without air condition in the summer time, is that the air gets stale real quick.
There were spots on the bed linnen (looked like asphalt), the bathroom had cracked tiles, sloppy repairs, mildew in corners and rusted holders for hand soap. Aditionally, the shower was made for hobbits (almost got claustrophobia when I went inside).
The breakfast was huge (as it is in Rica hotels), but small details made it less than perfect. The meatballs shared the bowl with smoked sausages which made them taste smoked as well, the glasses for juice were hot instead of cold (how much is a cooling plate these days, really?) there were no crisp in the bacon what so ever....
All in all... You can do better for the same rate!

This was a one night travel stopover on a Saturday night and a first at the Rica Malmø. where we were received very warmly by a friendly and helpful Receptionist. The hotel has an excellent location in the heart of the city and on Saturday evening, parking is free in the square. The room was small with an equally small bathroom in the eves. An open window let in the the sounds of the late-night revellers but in the silence of a closed window the room became unbearably hot. The upside was a wonderful view.
The breakfast was great with a good selection of breads, hot and cold dishes and an appetizing selection of fresh fruit and juices. The pavement terrace was a plus on a hot sunny morning..

Spent a night at this hotel in Malmo before travelling on to Copenhagen. The room (a twin) was a good size and had excellent facilities. The breakfast spread was superb. My only trivial complaint was that the wifi could be a bit erratic but then it was free - a rarity I tend to find in hotels nowdays. Excellent value.
