Clarion Collection Hotel Temperance
Ranked #9 of 37 Hotels in Malmo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2006

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!

We stayed in this hotel in Apr 2006. Malmo as a town is extremely quiet and relaxing. Included in our deal with hotel was a magnificent breakfast and also an evening meal so do pay the extra for the meals. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and even though the sauna was not working at the time of our stay, we had a really relaxing well fed few days. Central to everywhere, Malmo is tiny!!
Do Stay!!

I have stayed in this hotel afew times now. Last time i booked a mini suite and I must say all was perfect. The roomsize was above avarage (mini suite) and the colorscheme was very nice. Perfect location and hotel often offers very good deals. Breakfast is avarage. The hotel dont have a gym atm but offers a sauna for people who wants. If they could add some health club facilities this would be top notch.

I can warmly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling, and especially the mini suite, well worth the extra costs if your spending more than 1 or 2 nights.

We've just returned from malmo and stayed in the Clarion. The location was great, just a few minutes walk from the central square "Lilla Torg", the beds were fantastically comfortable, good rooms and the hotel offered a free evening buffet meal, which proved very handy considering the price of eating an evening meal in the local restaurants. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the Clarion Hotel Malmo (formerly Hotel Temperence) on both our visits to Malmo. It is a fairly old building which has been renovated in the last 5 years in a very modern style - it's almost boutique. It is located on a fairly quiet street in the city centre close to the two main city squares. Opposite the hotel is a supermarket which is open late (9pm).

The rooms we stayed in were very comfortable and decorated in the modern scandivian style - picture high wooden headboards, (fake hopefully) animal rugs, lots of glass and metal. The bed itself was very comfortable. The room had all modern amenities. Being on a quiet street, noise wasn't a problem however the windows were double-glazed and there was no noticeable sound from ajoining rooms.

Staff were friendly and courteous. I made a point of asking for a modern room and the receptionist spoke good English and was happy to oblige. I think there were older rooms in another wing during our visits but could not be sure.

Breakfast was included in our rate and served in an elegant restaurant in which the decor was like a 'posh' restaurant - it doubled up as this in the evening. The food was hot and well-cooked and they did not run out significantly - bear in mind this is not a large hotel so individual items did run out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Malmo and, whilst we would not normally return to a hotel, we liked this one so much we did.
