“Unnecessarily uncomfortable”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

Ok the hotel is 'budget' (although not that cheap in absolute terms) but once you have paid 50 kr to rent towels, paid 75 kr *per day* for internet access and you factor in the inconveniences of broken lights, toilets with no toilet paper, blocked drains, broken shower heads, the fact that the room card deactivates every day and you have to queue to reactivate it in reception, the paper-thin walls meaning that children running up and down the corridors cause you to physically bounce around in your bed (and you can hear them screaming as if they were in your room)... it begins to feel like bad value. Should be a lot cheaper given what is on offer.

By far the worst 'hotel' I've ever stayed in. When we arrived, it was almost like the hotel was an old peoples home with zombies walking around the corridors. The best surprise was when we got to our rooms.

My room had a carpet that was covered in stains and smelt ridiculously bad. When I pulled back the bed sheets I was met with an array of pubic hairs and further down the bed what I can only describe as discharge and human blood.

When I told the cleaners of this they said they would sort it but when I re-entered my room, I found that they had just remade the bed and hadn't dealt with the problem.

The toilet/shower areas were also covered in blood and God knows what else.

In the middle of the night, my group (even though we were probably not the quietest either...) were awoken to the sound of an old couple screaming the hotel down and having a full blown domestic.

For the good of your health, do not stay here.

Room Tip: There is no such thing as a good room in this hotel.

I stayed here in Dec 2010 and several times before that.
The rooms are all identical, sparse double bed with bunk and basic TV in one corner, washbasin in the other. Good soundproof/insulated window.
Showers and WCs are external to the rooms, in the corridors, made me think of facilities on board ship - but they all work OK with no frills.
When I stayed, the room doors opened with a code number given to you on arrival.
Breakfast (cereal, tea/coffee/juice/fruit) is an extra charge.

Next door to a petrol station and McDonalds, so some basic amenities are available.

It's a 5 minute walk to the bus station at Värnhem, and the Entre shopping mall is also there, so better facilities are within reach. Catch a bus to one of the stations (Triangeln, Central) if you need to. There is an ATM on the walk down to the bus station and in Entre, maybe also at the petrol station (can't recall exactly).

You would not stay here just for comfort, but if you really need a place to stay in town, or are on a tight budget then this is good value - for Sweden !

Room Tip: The passing railway trains on one side, can be a litle noisy during the night, choose the opposite s...

This was very basic, but suited our needs perfectly as an overnight stop. It was close enough to the centre, allowing us to do a quick tour of Malmo and recoup after our flight, before holidaying in another part of Sweden.
The room was surprisingly quiet for its location, with little overnight traffic noise
The garage next door sold basics we had left behind (toothbrush/shampoo) and snacks.

The showers were good and hot.

More trashcans on the toilets and bathrooms are needed, especially women need this.
The rooms was nice and fair.

Dirty, used condom found by the bed. The toilet (on the corridor) less hygienic and comfortable than an economy class airplane toilet. The light didn't work in the first room allocated. I will not stay there again.
