What amazed us most?

The long and fascinating history behind this modern hotel. The hotel was first opened as an inn in the 1300s and, since then, has undergone many a transformation – it was even a nightclub at one point. The hotel received its current name, Savoy, in 1902 and one well-travelled guest at the time said that it was on a par with the Savoy Hotel in London! Many famous guests have graced the hotel’s doors, including Judy Garland, Sammy Davis Jr. and even Lenin! The hotel is also known as "The Riviera" due to the white facade being reminiscent of the Mediterranean.

Why should you come here?

To enjoy all that Malmö has to offer from a very central location. Hit the shops, stroll around the wonderfully historic old town or explore the new district on the Baltic Sea. The Elite Plaza Hotel Malmö is located at Gustav Adolfs torg, and is surrounded by so many restaurants and shops you’ll be spoilt for choice!

The most

special thing about the hotel

We loved the mix of old and new. Even though the hotel has a classical vibe, it is equipped with all of the mod cons one could hope for, including a gym, spa, air-conditioning in all rooms and six spacious conference rooms. However, upon entering the hotel, a huge antique clock greets you and you discover that the hotel even has its own water tower (which, of course, isn’t functioning today!). Some conference rooms have unique paintings of Malmo old town on the walls. They are under a preservation order and weren't allowed to be changed even during the renovation of the hotel.

How to make

the most of your stay

Make sure to take a time-out in the popular Bishop’s Arms gastropub, located next door to the hotel. Offering a wide selection of food and drinks, the Bishop’s Arms is known to have one of the country’s largest ranges of beers and whiskeys. The highly trained, knowledgeable staff at the Bishop's Arms will be only too pleased to guide you through the wide and exciting assortment and can even arrange beer and whiskey tastings. The library here is truly amazing and you can find all kind of books in any language. You can even borrow one - but you have to leave one of your own in return!

What else

is there to see and do?

Being right in the centre of Malmö, you certainly won’t get bored! Sweden’s third-largest city has a progressive, contemporary feel and is home to Scandinavia's tallest building, beautiful parks, edgy modern museums and some superb cuisine. The Öresund Bridge connects the city to Copenhagen, creating a dynamic urban feel.

Malmö is also Sweden’s most multicultural metropolis - browse Middle Eastern street stalls, Italian coffee culture and hipster skateboard parks, which all co-exist happily side-by-side.

Gamla Staden (Old Town) is Malmö’s heart, while the castle, Malmöhus Slott, stands proud in a leafy setting. Across the canal is the redeveloped harbour precinct, home to some excellent cafes and restaurants.
