The Renaissance Malmo Hotel
Why we like it
- Stylish and contemporary hotel, a stone's throw from Stortorget and Lilla Torg
- Some of the most comfortable beds we've encountered
- Home to one of Malmö's finest restaurants
- An ideal base from which to explore the modern and historic centres and attractions Excellent shops and bars nearby
The hotel hosts a revolving art installation in the lobby, with works by renowned local and international artists. Our favourite is the giant pink elephant sculpture by William Sweetlove, whose additional works are displayed nearby at Galleri GKM.
I run out of superlatives when I consider how to describe our experience. It was, simply, the best holiday we have ever had.

The Renaissance Malmö is the first Marriot hotel to open in Sweden, located in the heart of the historic city centre just off Lilla Torg, one of the city's main attractions. Moments from Stortorget, Malmö Central Station and the excellent restaurants of the old quarter, the hotel affords excellent views over the rooftops of Malmö's pretty buildings and is the ideal base for exploring Malmö and its attractions, such as the HSB Turning Torso, St Peter's Church, Malmöhus Castle and Västra hamnen, a former industrial district now known as the City of Tomorrow - one of the first carbon-neutral urban areas in Europe.
Built around an attractive central courtyard, the hotel is modern and contemporary whilst still incorporating original features of the older building. All 128 spacious and air-conditioned rooms have flat screen televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi. The décor is bright and fresh, with sumptuous fabrics, smart bathrooms and beautiful carved furniture with a twist on Scandinavian design. The Renaissance offers three room types: Deluxe rooms are cosy but perfect for shorter breaks, Prestige rooms are spacious and full of natural light, while the Rosen Suite spreads across 60m² with a private living area.
The hotel is also home to one of Malmö's finest restaurant and bars, Rosen, which serves Scandinavian-influenced dishes for lunch and dinner, with a stylish selection of Afternoon Tea and a breakfast brunch that's popular with locals thanks to its wide selection of buffet options and eggs made to order. Also on site is an American restaurant and a fitness studio, with golf courses, swimming pools and a spa located a short distance away. Because of its location the hotel is the ideal base to begin a trip around Sweden, and is a mere thirty minute train ride from Copenhagen, ideal for a day trip or a longer break.
Best time to be there
Best visited during the long summer days from May to September when the midnight sun brings 24 hours of daylight, ideal if you are planning to spend much of your time outdoors.
Despite the very cold winters, there is still a great deal to do and see, from husky sledding to ice hotel stays and, between November and March, the chance to witness the Northern Lights.
