Recent guest reviews

We loved this hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful in assisting us with information we needed to locate things. They went out of their way to do that. Room was neat and clean. Breakfast was very good. Hotel was built in 1899, so it's old, but that added to it's charm. We never could get WiFi to work, however. The street in front of the hotel closes to vehicle traffic at 11:00 AM, so we had to park about 1 1/2 blocks away in a parking garage. It would have been helpful to know that in advance. We later found out that you CAN drive up to the front of the hotel, even after 11:00, just long enough to check in and out. (Too bad we didn't know that before dragging our bags for 1 1/2 blocks the first day!) They gave us a paper to scan to pay for the parking when we left, which was nice.

The staff, specifically, Maria and Carl were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were endeavoring to do some family history research to find local parishes where ancestors lived. Both tried their best to help us. The continental breakfast was delicious. Very much enjoyed staying there in fact, we stayed a total of three nights.

We stayed several days at the Baltzar earlier this month, and were very happy with the hotel - the very nice staff, the extensive breakfast, the comfortable bed. One of the best things about the Baltzar is the location. It is a few blocks from Central Station, and you find yourself in the heart of Malmo's historic district. We were visiting our daughter who was studying in Malmo for a semester. We enjoyed exploring Malmo, and also got out into the beautiful Skane countryside and Lund. Copenhagen is just a short communiter train ride away too.
