“Pleasant and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2010

We spent three days here in early August, having chosen the hotel over the Internet because of its centrality. It's a hotel with history, and the hotel owners are proud of it. Many prints and portraits hanging in the halls deal with its origins, development and famous owners, as it started as a grand town house with shops below. It was very hot while we were there, and as with most places in Scandinavia, there is no air conditioning, but we were provided with a fan which the staff had thoughtfully turned on well before we turned up, so the room was a pleasant temperature. The room was small-ish, but well appointed, with a good double bed, desk, chairs, TV, electric kettle and makings for coffee or tea. The en-suite bathroom was again small and typically Scandinavian (we have lived in Scandinavia and so are accustomed to the way bathrooms are typically laid out) but very adequate for purpose, clean and supplied with toiletries. Staff were always smiling and helpful. The lift was a wonderful survivor from the 1920s, all polished brass and fine woods, but if you have children with you, watch their fingers! For us, the highlight of travelling in Scandinavia are the breakfasts in hotels: smorgåsbord-style and with lots and lots to choose from. Every morning there were trays of breads and rolls, freshly sliced vegetables and fruits, pickles, yoghurt (plain and flavoured), filmjolk (a soured milk that's lovely with jam or honey -- try it!), boiled and scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, charcuterie, breakfast cereals (including porrige), tea, coffee and fruit juices, and a chaffing dish full of the most delicious pancakes. All this was served in the atmospheric medieval cellars under the hotel. In the afternoons, the hotel provided a pleasant public room with coffee, tea and biscuits, which we found a very nice way to refresh ourselves after a day of walking around the city. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

We recently got married in Malmö, Sweden and the Mayfair Hotel is where we suggested that our visitors stay. The hotel was just perfect. It has an old feel to it that you can't get in a chain hotel, but at the same time it was very well maintained. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helped out-of-town guests with everything from locating sightseeing destinations to finding a good place to run to tracking down article that we left behind after check-out. I heard no negative comments about the hotel from ANY of our guests. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and the hotel was very accommodating in terms of early check-ins and changes in travel plans. The budget single rooms were quite small, but the doubles were spacious (some even had a large jacuzzi tub), and the honeymoon suite was fantastic. Lastly, the location couldn't be better. It is in the heart of downtown Malmö but on a fairly quiet street so the noise wasn't too bad at night. Thank you Mayfair for a wonderful stay and good memories!

Good position close to the train station and car hire. Helpful staff, and superb breakfasts in the ancient cellar restaurant. My few criticisms are: the room bin was not emptied each day, and the room that we had was above the hotel nightclub, The Tunnel, which meant no sleep on Saturday night until it closed at 4 in the morning.

A hotel with history, a few creaking floorboards and the oldest working lift in Malmo! But that is all part of the character of a hotel that has obviously been regularly maintained and refurbished over the years. Its location is very convenient if you arrive by train - just five minutes walk across from the station. Equally the main restaurant area is only five minutes walk behind the hotel. We booked a de luxe room and couldn't fault it; a large double electric bed that could be adjusted to watch TV comfortably, well equipped bathroom and shower (nice and large), a mini bar (but no soft drinks except coke?) and tea and coffee-making facilities (although we never used them because free tea and coffee was available in the lounge 24 hours). No air con so a bit hot despite the fan provided in the room (it was the brief Skane summer when we visited).
Breakfast - served in the cellar - was not quite as good as some reviewers would have it but certainly adequate (they must have been impressed by the smoked salmon!). Staff on reception were very friendly with one young woman (Swedish) whose English is so good I thought she came from the UK. Oh, that lift: do remember to close the inside concertina door properly and save the staff having to run up the stairs to get the lift operating again!
Excursions: as Wallander fans we did a day trip to Ystad. Well worth it. Lovely little town with a nice shopping street and the town square that has featured in a few episodes of the TV drama series. Easily reached (40 minutes or so) by fast electric train. Tourist information centre (opposite station) has a good supply of free information leaflets including a Wallander trail through the town.
The boat trip around Malmo is also worthwhile on a nice day although it's not the most fascinating city in the world......again only five minutes walk away from the hotel to find it.

We stayed a night in one of the the rooms with a small bed (140cm). A very pleasant hotel to stay. Good location, 2-4 minutes walk from Malmö city center and 1-2 minute walk to station. It is located on a quiet street. The staff is not too formal but professional. Tasty breakfast including 'standard' breakfast selection and some Swedish specialties.
We are picky, but this hotel was absolutely satisfying.

We stayed in four different hotels in Sweden. They were all good, but the Mayfair was definitely the best. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable and had a lot of character with its beams. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, as were the breakfast staff, and the breakfast has something for everyone. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance and we were able to park our car in the street overnight. All in all, a great place to stay.

I needed a place to stay while looking at Malmö and sleep one night before catching the train and it was a good experience. Service is very friendly, location perfect (not at the noisy street where most hotels are, but one road behind, very quite).
Only thing to complain about is the room, singles are very small, shower tiny and TV antique and small. Would need an upgrade.
Nice breakfast in beautiful cellar
