The Clarion is a charming old hotel in Malmö's old town. The location is perfect for sightseeing but makes the hotel very tricky to access by car. The hotel also has limited parking capacity. A useful tip is to buy the Malmö card which gives free on street parking anywhere in town as well as access to museums and public transit (althougn not to Lund).
There seems to be an old and new wing. I stayed in the old wing facing the street. The ceilings were very tall and the window enormous. Hardwood flooring and quality wood furniture made the room feel elegant and cosy. The hallways feature alcoves housing African statuettes - a very unusual and lovely touch.
Common areas include a breakfast / dinner area which is a bit sterile but a series of lounges which look amazingly comfortable. They must be warm and welcoming in the winter.
Some room rates (all?) include a dinner buffet. The atmosphere is somewhat institutional, with bright lighting and long tables. Also, the buffet contains mainly salads. Main dishes are provided erratically. Day 1, some chicken thighs were available but ran out while we were having salad. 30 minutes later, staff returned with pork skewers. Day 2, the main course was soup with meat chunks that did not quite seem homemade. Alternatively, turn right from the main entrance and the cross streets as well as Lilla Torget contain many enticing restaurants. Bloom is a restaurant in the hotel building but it was closed in the summer.
One feature common to all Clarion hotels I have stayed at in Sweden is their strange internet policy. The hotel generously provides internet but only for for up to 8 CONSECUTIVE hours per day. It means that you must choose between accessing the internet in the morning or at night!
