Like so much else in Malmö, in recent years the boutique hotel scene is growing and the best ones take note of Malmö’s industrial past while embracing its colourful, artistic present. Malmö is well on its way to becoming Sweden’s coolest city so here’s our guide on where to stay when visiting.
Seconds from Lilla Torg, Renaissance offers stylishly decorated rooms, 24-hour room service, luxurious beds and bedding, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel bar is a gathering spot for both hotel guests and locals, and the on-site restaurant Johan P is a relaxed spot to enjoy the local seafood. Minibars and flat screen TVs with satellite are in every room.
Another excellent hotel that’s just a stone’s throw from Malmö‘s much-vaunted Lilla Torg, Hotel Mäster Johan is one of the city’s premier hotels; with tastefully decorated rooms featuring high-end touches such as Paloma Picasso-designed tiles in the bathrooms and artwork by Johan Gluck. Breakfast is served in the glass-roofed courtyard, Wi-Fi is free, Bang & Olufsen flat screen TVs are in every room, and of course there is a gym and sauna.
While this is another hotel clustered around Lilla Torg, it brings a subtleness and quietness to its environment, which can be quite welcoming after the hustle and bustle of the city. Free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and flat screen TVs are in every room, and the luxury bedding comes from Swedish brand Dux. The overall design marries historic features with modern Scandi design; and the breakfast buffet, which features local organic produce, is not to be missed. The bar is inviting and offers a light bar menu.
With a history dating back to the 14th century, the building housing Elite Hotel Savoy has been lovingly and respectfully restored – with beautiful rooms and suites that retain their sense of history while offering every modern amenity. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, along with a top-of-the-line restaurant, have been enjoyed by the multitude of well-known guests who have made the Savoy their home away from home. Just opposite Central Station, this hotel’s premium location puts Malmö – as well as Copenhagen – at your fingertips.
Close to Malmö’s main square Stortorget and just a short walk from Central Station, Hotel Garden has all the usual amenities such as free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast. What makes it stand out is the stunning rooftop garden, which is surrounded by fruit trees, as well as free entry to the Forum Fitness Centre, just opposite the hotel, and free sauna access. Intriguing contemporary art is scattered throughout the hotel and the charming rooms include cable TV and a work desk, with some also offering a seating area.
This historic hotel, located in a 14th-century building once frequented by royalty, retains much of its original charm while still delivering everything a modern traveler could want. The luxurious, spacious rooms are individually decorated in a way that allows the history to speak in a contemporary way. Many of the double deluxe rooms have original wooden ceiling beams, free W-Fi is of course included, and the popular breakfast buffet is served in a medieval cellar vault. Famed shopping street Södergatan is just moments away.
The waters of the Limhamn district are just moments away from Strand Hotell, while Strand Park is just across the street, with walking paths perfect for exploring this newly gentrified area. Free parking and Wi-Fi are included, as are coffee and tea in the lounge. Rooms include a fridge, a work desk and a seating area with overhead lamps. Restaurants and even a grocery store are located in the same building.
Located in the former Mazetti Chocolate Factory, which was built in 1888, this eco-friendly apartment hotel was completely refurbished in 2004. The apartments are modern and stylish, with a kitchen, seating area and cable TV. Just five minutes from the bustling Möllevången district, free Internet, gym and sauna access are also included. Breakfast is served daily in the bistro, which also offers lunch and dinner. The inner courtyard is the perfect place to take your meal in the summer months. You can also rent bicycles at reception, and laundry and dry cleaning services are also available.
Modern, compact rooms with free Wi-Fi and excellent beds are the hallmark of this hotel. Throw in free bicycle rentals and free coffee and things get even better. Then there’s the common room with comfortable sofas and chairs, where you can browse the collections of magazines and newspapers. If the weather is warm, take it all outside to the urban garden that is filled with fruits and vegetables. And the best part is this hotel is literally a one-minute walk from Central Station and all that Malmö has to offer.
