Scandic Hotel Malmen
Lonely Planet review
An enormous, unbeautiful box, this functionalist building dating from 1951 is pretty on the inside. Its pleasant hotel rooms feature the clean lines and up-to-date design typical of the Scandic chain, with a major bonus being location - the hotel is smack in the middle of the vibrant Söder nightlife.
There are 327 rooms of varying sizes and eight suites. Computers in the lobby allow guests to surf the Internet, send email and print documents free of charge. There's a special play area set up for kids, with a cafe attached so parents can keep a watchful eye. The hotel has an à la carte restaurant as well as a coffee shop serving lighter fare. Still, most of the folks you'll see in the common areas are here for the piano bar. It comes with a tiny blackjack room (something of a special play area set up for adults, if you will). This section stays open late, so it can get obnoxiously crowded with drunken louts around 01:00 when the nearby bars close.
