“Perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

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.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

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.

We spent 2 nights (1st - 3rd May, 2012) at the Rica Hotel Malmö, and the reason for us visiting the city at this time was that my wife was celebrating her birthday. Lucky enough, the weather was the absolutely best during our visit (sunny weather and +23 C / 73,4 F during daytime).

We were very warmly and professionally welcomed by the front desk staff, and during our stay every one of the employees that we met was extraordinarily outgoing, friendly and positive.

Our room was large and very nice with a hardwood floor, a very comfortable and nice king size bed and with bathrobes & slippers. The bathroom, in the colors of white & black, had a shower as well as a bathtub. A minor negative thing was that the floor had no heating.

During many nights every year I stay at different hotels, especially in Sweden, due to my work.
The breakfast served by the Rica Hotel Malmö is one of the very best I’ve experienced at a hotel in Sweden!
And the staff present in the restaurant was so attentive and enjoyable!

The hotel itself is situated very centrally in Malmö, at the “Stortorget” (i.e. the large square), within walking distance to everything.

I have been staying at other hotels in Malmö before. However, after our stay this time, the Rica Hotel undoubtfully will be my/our first choice even during my/our next visit.
And I have no doubt in recommending the hotel to others as well.
