I really can’t get enough of Sweden, and in Malmö, Hotel Duxiana has to be one of the most charming places to stay. A boutique hotel, located on the edge of Gamla Staden (Old Town) and just 5 minutes from Malmö Central Station, it’s not just slick and comfortable, but super convenient too. Linked to DUX, a high-quality Swedish bed and furniture company, Hotel Duxiana puts comfort first and guarantees you a good night’s sleep. Beds are big and bouncy, with premium linens and upholstered headboards, and our room, a Premium Double, had the most wonderful, whimsical XXL lampshade, which elegantly hovered above the bed, adding serious Scandi design flair. Rooms themselves are bright and light, with a classic feel, muted colour palettes, and large windows looking out across the city. Bathrooms are spacious, well stocked with MALIN+GOETZ toiletries.
Breakfast is included in most room rates, and you can expect a solid spread with fresh bread, eggs, waffles, and all your Scandi favourites. Outside, everywhere is pretty walkable and relatively close, so you can make the most of lazy mornings and easily pop back for a shower after you’ve been skinny-dipping at Ribersborgs Kallbadhus! Malmö is just great and Duxiana is a really comfortable, convenient base.
