“best hotel ever”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

this is a wonderful hotel. the room was huge and bathroom was really nicel. The room was also really quiet and the black out curtains were a treat for a light sleeper.
The staff were really friendly and helped my boyfriend arrange flowers in our room for our anniversary (a nice surpise).
If I visit Malmo again I will without doubt stay here again.

This hotel is rightly No.1 in Malmo - it was (virtually) faultless. The welcome we received from the receptionist on arriving well before check-in time was possibly the warmest we have ever received anywhere in the world! And that level of customer service was to continue throughout our stay.

Just a five minute walk from the central station (itself just 20 minutes from Copenhagen airport) the hotel is ideally situated in the heart of the old part of the city, but just far enough away from the busier parts. We were not surprised to discover that the hotel is family-owned and run by a woman CEO - the evidence of a 'woman's touch' is everywhere, meaning the hotel is a better place for it!

Our standard double room was large, in fact almost a suite, with a generously-sized bathroom. Both rooms were very well equipped and the large bed exceedingly comfortable. There were too many good things about the rooms to list them all but we particularly liked the candle and little duck in the bathroom :)

The breakfast buffet provided a good choice of cereals, breads, pastries etc as well as fresh cooked eggs, sausages, bacon etc.

I mentioned the hotel was virtually faultless: I was a little alarmed when the shower control fell off in my hand and my feet were briefly scalded. But no great drama - I enjoyed a bath instead! Also, despite the hotel's best efforts to protect guests from internal noise (i.e. double entrance doors), we were nevertheless disturbed in the early hours by revellers out on the street.

But we wouldn't want to allow these two minor negatives to downplay the wonderful experience that we enjoyed in this establishment. We would return to Malmo just to stay at this hotel!

Had an amazing experience. Very clean, great staff, And good decor! Feel welcome from the start. ;) The location is perfect, close to restaurants, and the cute shops. It's a bit high on the price, quality hotel. I would defiantly stay here again. :)

Stayed here for three days and thought it was a super hotel. The location is good and central without being noisy. The room was very large and well furnished with comfy bed and luxurious bathroom. Quite traditional in style, but very comfortable and relaxing. Everything spotless and breakfast was good too. Staff friendly and genuine. Overall a beautiful place to stay in Malmo with no faults.

An attractive building in the centre of old Malmö, the Master Johan certainly came up to expectations. Although the bustling Lilla Torg square is close by, I was never aware of noise from it - evidently the windows are effectively glazed. My room was much larger than I had expected and was most attractively furnished in a traditional yet unstuffy style. The large bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom, although small, was well equipped.
Breakfast was excellent and served in attractive surroundings.
Staff throughout the hotel were helpful and friendly.
For visitors like me who had to use public transport, the railway station was but a short walk away, an added bonus.

Classy hotel ten minutes' walk from Central Station and just two minutes from Lilla Torg. Welcoming and helpful front-desk staff. Bright and airy atrium with complimentary hot drinks. Spacious rooms with triple-glazed windows which effectively keep street noise out - even during the hellish racket of the Malmo Festival in late August. However, rooms can be hot and stuffy in summer and there's no air-conditioning. Rooms have safes. Good breakfast buffet served in a 'Swedish kitchen' setting with good choice of hot items. Nightly rate of SEK 1,990 (~ £ 200 / €250) is on the high side but not for Sweden, apparently. Recommend The Steakhouse in Lilla Torg, neighbouring La Roche for tapas and, on a sunny day, the garden cafe near the windmill in Malmohus Park.

Room Tip: Fourth floor rooms are quiet.
