Room was basic but clean and good size.
Breakfast was very varied and plentiful. Hot selection plus fruit and cereals.

Main problem was room overlooked a busy road, taxi rank and McDonalds which was open until 4am. The window was single glazed and had no sound proofing. The road was very noisy until 4 am and this prevented a good nights sleep.

Good price, tiny rooms, nothing special.

While they were very friendly to our family with young kids, this hotel seems to cater more to a younger crowd. The lobby has a bit of a nightclub feel and our room barely had enough space for us to move around in. Our older kid got a cot, but the younger had to share a twin bed with a parent.

No A/C, which would be fine most of the year but not so much during July's heat wave. It was HOT and the window did not fully open (only about 10cm). Street outside was noisy and filled with traffic. For those of you familiar with NYC this location is sort of like a mix between Times Square and St. Marks. Lots of trendy stuff nearby, but the immediate area of the hotel is crap.

The plus: staff was very nice. We requested extra pillows and they were delivered quickly. Breakfast was pretty good (though I've certainly had better Scandic breakfasts elsewhere). Hotel allowed us to store some luggage free of charge for several days which was very convenient.

Overall, this place is just fine for a short stay and likely better for younger couples or friends rather than families.

The staff at Scandic Malmen were friendly and helpful and in a close location to SoFo. A large variety of foods for the buffet breakfast but all very low quality. The entire breakfast dining area stinks and the carpet is so thick with stains and dirt. The location is very dangerous, high crime rate. There was a stabbing and multiple arrest out front of the hotel while we were staying there. There is always security staff in the lobby. The rooms are so small that there was not enough space to put our suitcase on the floor. I’ve never seen a smaller bathroom. I would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a big enough room to at least open a suitcase

Dear fairtravellers2014
Thank you for your feedback!
We are sorry to read that our breakfast did not meet your expectations, we are planning a light refurbishment in our restaurant where our carpet will be removed and changed as well.

I hope you give us a second chance and visit us again soon.

Best regards,

Nikolas Garcia
Hotel Manager
Scandic Malmen

If you like architecture, this would be really appealing for you.

Our room was really good, with big comfortable bads and interesting decor.
The only cons are no air conditioning and small bathroom.

The breakfast was really good, also options for vegans.

The staff is polite and professional.

The hotel location is great, the bus and metro station are less than 5mins walk.

Also lots of supermarkets are near the hotel, many restaurants and shops.
