Ask a dozen people about their favourite hotel, and you’ll likely get a dozen different responses. A favourite hotel is as much of a personal preference as your favourite movie, book or singer. But in our opinion, the best hotels have a few things in common: they feel intimate and personal (regardless of size or number of rooms), they have a distinctive vibe, the staff offers superb service and the architecture and interior design are unique and full of character. We love them even more when they are deeply ingrained in the local neighbourhood and culture. Here’s our list of five carefully crafted Malmö boutique and luxury hotels that tell a strong story.

Young, hip and fun, MJ’s is located on a happing pedestrian street that leads up to Lilla Torg, the epicentre for Malmö’s nightlife. The kitsch, over-the-top interior is effective in covering up MJ’s former life as Mäster Johan, a stale hotel that desperately needed a new lease on life. We love the central glass roof atrium, decorated with (faux) ivy and flowers, where both the breakfast buffet and dinner menu always manages to make our tastebuds zing. Get a room at MJ’s if you’re looking to enjoy a hoppin’ weekend away.
