We reached Malmo station at about 8pm from Copenhagen, Denmark after about 45 minutes of journey on Oresundstag Train, only to be made aware by the local people that the city buses do not accept cash after 8pm. Since we had crossed the 8pm deadline, we were trying to figure out as to how to reach Hotel Ibis Malmo at Stadiongatan. Well, what we discovered was lovely. In case someone arrives after 8pm and produces Train tickets to the bus driver, the person can travel free to the destination by the city bus. What a novel way and thats why i would rate Scandinavia so high on the index of quality of life. We arrived at the Hotel by bus in the next 15 minutes of journey, to be greeted by a very hospitable reception staff. The room , on the 5th floor, was excellent and very well done-up. we were impressed by the cleanliness. by the time we could come out of the room, it was about 10pm. We were advised that most of the shops / restaurants nearby would be closed and since we had our 4 year old son with us, we settled for the restaurant in the hotel. At SEK99, which by swedish standards was a low budget meal deal, we had spicy chicken salad club plate and it was a perfect meal for an Indian taste. spicy, saucy and hot. Food was tasty....However, I still cant forget this hotel as i was informed that my booking was confirmed but my credit card company had not released the money to the hotel, whereas i was billed for it. Nevertheless, they did not charge me again and since we had to leave early morning next day, they did not say a word. a week down the line, i received a mail from them intimating me that the credit card company had still not released the money. I told them to wait till i reach india and sort this out. I reached India after 20 odd days and then asked them to bill me again on my credit card. they charged me and the issue was settled without a hitch. Not only did i realise that the Swedes value the worth of human life and dignity but are also very patient. As for Indians travelling to Scandinavia, the advise is that, please inform your credit card company that you would be undertaking a trip to scandinavian countries and your card should be listed on scandinavian credit card database , which is separate from the rest of the world, otherwise it would be difficult for you to make payments by credit cards issued in India. I am all for this Hotel and whenever i undertake a visit to Malmo, Sweden next time, i would love staying in this hotel. The service, mannerisms, vibes, care and comfort that one needs especially when travelling with a 4 year old naughty toddler son, this hotel was beyond my expectations on all counts. in short, we were simply imressed by the Swedish hospitality.
