I know the Story Hotels from Stockholm. Last year a Story Hotel also opened in Malmö. In terms of rooms with a view the Story Hotel is a great competitor of Clarion Hotel Malmö Live where I stayed 2 summers ago. I chose the most expensive room, the large ocean, with a view of the Öresund Bridge (from the bed!) and the sea.
Room with a view
It does not happen often that I leave the curtains of my hotel room open. This was the case for the second time in Malmö. I chose this hotel (and especially this room) because of the view. The Large Ocean offers a 180 ° view of the sea, Västra Hamnen with the Turning Torso and another piece of Malmö. Awesome! I moved the big TV on the first day so that I also had a view of the Öresund Bridge from the bed. I stayed at Studio Malmö in December, and the pillars of the Öresund Bridge served as candles on the Advent calendar for the first time. What a great idea (although not that easy to photograph with a smartphone, from my room)!
There are different types of rooms in Story Hotel Studio Malmö so you can choose a room that suits you best: budget-friendly options, rooms with luxurious rain showers, rooms with a view of the city and rooms with a view of the water. The hotel rooms are located on the upper floors of an office building and in Malmö there aren’t a lot of tall buildings, so you actually look above the city anyway.
Facilities at Story Hotel Studio Malmö
Story Hotel thinks of everything. The rooms are conveniently furnished and equipped with nice extras. There are many power outlets so you always have a socket near your laptop or to charge your cell phone. USB chargers are also provided on the bedside tables. There is a mini-bar, filled with (free) products from Vitamin Well. Zlatan is the link here. This football hero is from Malmö and he is ambassador for these fresh vitamin drinks.
In the bathroom you will find bath products of the house brand. There were robes and slippers. In my bathroom there was a bath and a rain shower. You can not lose your key at Story Hotels. They work with codes. Handy!
The hotel is just a 5-minute walk from Malmö Central Station. If you come outside the main exit, you will see a small lighthouse on your right. Walk in that direction and you will soon see the hotel!
Lucia, a story
At twenty past eight I was putting my make-up on. My mascara was already on my one eye. My hair had already been brushed but I was still in my pajama short. Suddenly I heard the fire alarm. Now you should know that I had some problems with my Achilles tendon during the last few days. I hesitated for a moment. Would there be a real fire? It did not seem like a good timing to hold a fire exercise in a hotel.
I decided not to take any risks, quickly put on my winter coat and started walking down 12 floors. In the stairwell I came across a few other hotel guests who looked at my hotel slippers, short shorts and half-make-uped face. In retrospect, it must have been hilarious.
When I was on the second floor, the office workers from the floors below the hotel came up again. It turned out, fortunately, that it was a false alarm. It was December the 13th and some colleagues were too enthusiastic about lighting the candles for the feast of light. But I can confirm that the fire alarm is working properly!
Breakfast on the 14nd floor
Do you want to opt for a cheaper room with less spectacular views? No worries! Breakfast is served in the sky bar on the 14th floor. In the summer you can also take a seat on the terrace. Breakfast is buffet style and with Lucia they also served lussekatter, the famous saffron rolls.
