First Hotel Mortensen
Ranked #29 of 36 Hotels in Malmo
Reviewed 30 August 2011

The building itself is very interesting with style.
All the rooms are nicely decorated with tapestries and antique like furniture.
All the windows are double shilded from the street noise.
Our room (triple room) was very spacy.
Breakfast was excellent in plenty and with very tasty salmon sandwiches.
It is located 10 minutes from Malmo Central railway station and near the Lila Torg lovely square.
There is an elevator in the hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quite.

We stayed two nights here on a business trip and found this hotel has a good price/value rate.
Hotel Baltzar's main advantage is it's central location since it is in the middle of the pedestrian area of Malmö, everything is within walking distance. Lobby area is nice, the breakfast is ok and the bed is comfortable enough but on the other hand my room's only window looked to an internal utility shaft and my colleague room was full of dustballs until he mentioned it to the staff.
But overall, I recommend Hotel Baltzar to stay.

You cannot live more in the centre of Malmö.
We arrived on a friday evening and they had a jazz trio playing soft music. Super nice!
We ate a light meal and drank cava, spanish "champagne", for very reasonable prices, in the restaurant.
Had a perfect saturday morning breakfast and then just stepped out of the door and we were in the middle of beautiful Malmö.
A four star hotel at the top of the scale.
I would recommend hotel Baltzar anytime.

We stayed at the Baltzar Hotel one night in Dec 2010; on transit to Germany. Public parking garage close by; the hotel is clean, breakfast choice was excellent. We got a very large room on the top floor, almost a suite. Beds were a bit soft, but OK. Bathroom somewhat small, compared to the room size, but good and clean. Very friendly staff! Location couldn't be better, you step out of the door and you're in the heart of Malmö. Would certainly go back to this hotel.

Cozy and centrally located. We just stayed for one night and the only negative part was that the room was a bit hot at night. Besides that i would really recommend this charming hotel. It was really wort the 850 SEK we payed!

In my opinion, it is a hotel's primary responsibility to give you a good night's sleep. It does not matter if they have friendly staff, a good breakfast, a workout club or a pool. If a hotel fails to give you a good night's sleep, they've failed altogether, no matter how many other positives they can offer.

The hotel does have a lot of positives. First, the hotel is indeed very nice looking. Reception lobby is beautiful and the rooms are quite nice with high windows and good decoration. Second, the staff were nice and helpful (although they did lose our passports for a bit). Third, the breakfast is outstanding. The selection cannot be beat and it's of top quality. Fourth, the location is just a quick walk from central station. You go a few blocks straight out from the stating, make a right and you've only walked 5 minutes before you easily spot it.

Despite all these positives, they hotel deserves the POOR rating I'm giving them because sleeping in a room here is simply impossible in the summer. The reception lobby is air-conditioned, but as soon as you leave it to go up to your room, the hallways are stiflingly hot and stuffy. You're sweating by the time you get to your room even if you've taken the lift. Though you've been silently hoping that your room will be otherwise, more hot stuffy air hits you when you open the door. Basically, the air is hot everywhere in the building except the lobby. And to make matters worse, there is absolutely no breeze whatsoever in that entire building, not even from a fan.

And forget about opening the windows. Yes, it will cool down your room, but the second you open the windows you feel as if the entire street below is standing in your room with you - it is SO LOUD! The sound echoes up the side of the building and amplifies absolutely EVERYTHING. Even if you are on the fourth floor, you can hear every word of a street-level conversation spoken in normal tones. In the beginning of the night, you'll have drunken tourists laughing and screaming. In the morning you'll wonder why you ever liked the sound of seagulls at the shore.

In short, your room will either be stiflingly hot or, if you open the windows, really REALLY noisy - a no win situation. We spent our three nights getting up periodically to open and shut the windows, alternating between the two hells. A simple fan would really solve the whole problem. The air just needs to MOVE for God's sake. But, alas, the hotel does not offer this. When we asked them what we should do, they just shrugged and said, "Get earplugs?" I suggest finding another hotel.
