I stayed 1 night at the Astoria in Malmö, and it was not a very nice experience.
Although the hotel seemed empty (we checked in on a quiet Sunday evening), we were given a tiny room with an even smaller window in the 4th floor.
There was no air-conditioning or even ventilation, and it was not possible to open the extremely small window, so the room got really hot during the night.
Bed from Ikea (yes, I checked); very poor quality and felt worn.
The rooms have been renovated using the "quick and dirty"-method, and one can certainly tell.
The receptionist (a young man) was obviously not suited for jobs including customer service, as he was uninterested in telling us anything not directly asked. His reply to one question: "it's not like I own the hotel; I just work here."
The lady at the reception the morning after did hardly say a word, she just stared at the guests and seemed to have lost interest in her job.
The breakfast was poor, there was a shortage of more or less everything. It was so obviuos the hotel is not a success; there were 6 persons in the breakfast "room", and there were like 10 pieces of bread, 10 grapes etc.
Would never go there again, even if I was paid to.
