In the lobby you'll see a wall of Marshall amplifiers. Black beanbags are strewn over the lobby floor and Led Zeppelin, Black Keys and Metallica are playing from the loudspeakers.
The building may date from 1898, but it is now home to what may be the most modern hotel in Malmö. And with 293 rooms it is the largest.
We have counted the number of footsteps from the railway platform to the hotel – our tester took 128.
That makes us the city's most centrally located hotel. As well as immediate access to rail, road and bus links, the hotel is also close to all that Sweden's third largest city has to offer.
Malmö is the most cosmopolitan city in Sweden. The former Hanseatic port and industrial powerhouse now attracts visitors from all over the world. The city is currently experiencing a burst of economic and cultural activity, with a thriving artistic and cultural scene, restaurants offering dishes from all over the world and a growing IT sector.
Malmö is also one of the most eco-friendly cities on Earth. And the best way of exploring it is by bicycle. Grab a bike from the reception and feel the find in your hair.
Our rooms are compact and very cleverly designed – in our humble opinion. The beds are supplied by Hilding Anders and our designer easy chairs are Jetsons. All rooms have flatscreen TVs and fast Wifi that is both free and reliable.
Some of our rooms are designed for "compact living". Pull down the extra beds and these rooms can sleep up to four. Ideal for rock bands – and scout groups.
Or perhaps you like a deluxe room with a free-standing bath? These rooms are located in a wing of the hotel that has several rooms with unique features. Or how about one of the corner rooms? Imagine the view from the balcony.
Our automated self-service check-in system is easy to use and lets you avoid the check-in lines. But if you prefer people to technology, the bar-tending receptionists will be happy to help you.
Our lobby shop is stocked with sushi, salads, baguettes, Firefly Tonics, sparkling water and other sodas.
If your mornings aren’t too much of a rush, breakfast is served from 6.30 - 9.30 a.m. on weekdays. Weekends are more leisurely, with breakfast served from 7.30 - 10.30 a.m. on Saturdays and until 12 noon on Sundays.

Do like to keep your Sundays lazy? Keep your room until 6 p.m. – simply request a late check-out at reception.
