Celebrate LGBT Pride at the Malmo Pride Parade and stay in one of the gay friendly hotels Malmo, Sweden.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights in Sweden are regarded as some of the most progressive in Europe and in the world. Same-sex sexual activity was legalized in 1944 and the age of consent was equalized to that of heterosexual activity in 1972. Sweden also became the first country in the world to allow transgender persons to change their legal gender post-sex reassignment surgery in 1972 whilst transvestism was declassified as an illness.
After allowing same-sex couples to register for partnership benefits in 1995, Sweden became the seventh country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage countrywide in 2009.
Malmö is a coastal city in southern Sweden. It lies at the eastern end of the striking Öresund Bridge, a long road and railway bridge–tunnel running to Copenhagen, Denmark. In the city center, Lilla Torg is a cobblestone square with cafes, half-timbered houses and shops selling local handicrafts. Malmö Castle, a 16th-century fortress built by King Christian III of Denmark, houses nature, history and art exhibits.

n Malmo we decided to stay in hotel OH-Boy which is close to town center and Malmo castle and of course Turning Torso. We booked rooms by booking.com and there was no problem at all, what more you do not need keys to get into your room instead you use personal pin code. Rooms are rather small but this is nothing new in Sweden, but there are fully equipped even with fully equipped kitchen. Each room has bike available which is nice because in Malmo bikes are fastest way of communication and there are plenty of bike roads.
Malmo its architecture is beautiful also location close to Oresund straits and Oresund bridge, which connects Sweden with Denmark make this location perfect.
Split level rooms with tiny kitchen/dining/living upstairs and sleeping downstairs. LB loved her little sleeping nook tucked under the stairs. It’s an aparthotel so cleaning is once a week. The location is about 20 minute walk into the city center. A bike rental is included in the room cost.
The hotel provides free foldable bicycle for each room. There were bigger cargo bikes are also available for hire. The hotel bed was super comfortable and bathroom was exceptionally clean. The nearest departmental store is about 300 meters away from the hotel.
There are many good restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. My only concern was they clean the rooms weekly once. All the rooms were equipped with smart locks. The person at the reception was very friendly and he provided a Map of the City and also guided me about the routes of the various attractions. Overall it was good peaceful stay.
he hotel offers accommodation for the modern, urban traveller, making it easier to live green with solutions to enable the sharing of resources, reducing emissions all the while living a comfortable life in the city. The loft hotel rooms’ interiors are locally sourced – design, production and materials for the furniture are all from the south of Sweden.

2. Hotel Radisson Blu Hotel Malmö 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Malmo
Only 5 minutes’ walk from Malmö Central Station and a few blocks from the main shopping streets, Radisson Blu Hotel Malmö offers free WiFi, gym and sauna access.
The modern, spacious rooms feature a seating area, cable TV and air conditioning.
Radisson Blu Malmö’s restaurant and bar, Thott’s, is located in one of Malmö’s oldest timber-framed buildings. It serves a popular breakfast buffet as well as a variety of Swedish lunch and dinner dishes.
Set in the old town, this modern upscale hotel is an 8-minute walk from Malmö Central train station and 3 km from the landmark Turning Torso skyscraper.
Streamlined rooms come with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, minibars, and tea and coffee making equipment. Upgraded rooms add Nespresso machines, and suites have separate living areas. Room service is available 24/7.
There’s a rustic-chic restaurant and a wine bar. Additional amenities include an exercise room and a sauna. Massage services, bike rentals and meeting rooms are available.
Great hotel located in city center, 10 minutes walking from central train station. Room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and big. In room you can find Nespresso machine. Bathroom was clean and big. Minus was weak water pressure in shower and it was little cold in room. Breakfast was excellent, you can choose from a la carte menu plenty of food. Staff was friendly and helpful! Definitely recommend, we will come back.
The hotel is nice and is close to the train station away and away from the train station. The rooms are big. The layout is a little odd. The bed is close to the floor and then there is a bar area and then a sitting area and desk. The bathroom is nice and the toiletries are above average. The breakfast is fair and has a good variety although it gets old fast. If breakfast isn’t in the rate included its pricey. There are lots of places to eat for breakfast in the area.
A very good four-star city hotel, especially compared to the competition around Stortorget.
My room was surprisingly large and came with a separate sitting area as well as a good desk with sockets etc. The bed, while a bit narrow, was comfortable. There were two beds next to each other that could be moved. There were several sockets by the bed for charging your devices.
WiFi didn’t require a password and was fast enough. There was a safe, a minibar and ample closet space.
The white tiles on the bathroom walls made it feel a little hospital like, but there was a deep bathtub, a handheld shower with adequate water pressure and all the usual amenities needed.
All staff members were friendly both at reception and in the breakfast room. I checked in at 11:30 and got my room right away. A late check out at 2:30 was granted without problems, although the check-out itself took far too long as there was only one single receptionist working and there were five guests in line.
Breakfast cost 159 SEK when paid at check-in, and it was well worth it. The spread was not outstanding but included all the usual essentials, both hot and cold. The bread basket was extensive. The fruit left a bit to be desired and there could have been a more variable juice selection. Breakfast is served 6:30-10 on weekdays and 7-11 on weekends.
The hotel is located in the city centre. The walk from the airport train and main railway station takes ten minutes, and Stortorget, the heart of Old Malmö, is also a ten minute walk away. The hotel building also houses a sad shopping centre with mostly empty store space, but it has two supermarkets, which is convenient.
I will definitely stay at the Radisson again, as I consider it the best option in central Malmö, yet very reasonably priced.
This is in central Malmo, it is within easy walking distance of the central railway station, and the main square and shopping area. I stayed in a larger double room which was very spacious. The breakfast is a buffet style but you can eat as much as you like.
There is also a mini menu where you can order other breakfast options. Staff are friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. There is a shopping mall right next to the hotel with ICA and Lidl supermarkets.

The hotel has a warm atmosphere. Rooms are not very big but good enough with all features that you need in a room. Breakfast is very complete and well served by the staff. No lack of anything. I recommend this hotel to everybody that is on the way up north or wants to visit Malmö. Very nice hotel and a very nice city.
Great hotel. Our room had separate sleeping quarters, a main room and a living room with a sofa bed. It’s very close to all attractions, including Old Town (5 min walk). If you want to take the short trip to Copenhagen. The best and economical way in my opinion take the 999 bus that stops behind the hotel, just walk thru the lobby and the double glass doors and you are 25 steps away from it. The bus terminal is right in the center of Copenhagen within walking distance to the old port and the little mermaid.
This hotel is conveniently located in the old town and about a 10 minute walk (with luggage) from the central train station. Check-in was super quick and smooth; service friendly and efficient and the breakfast selection was sufficient. Our room (standard room) was not too small and had all the necessary amenities. Coffee/tea making facilities are not available in the rooms, but coffee/tea and pastries are available to hotel guests in the lobby throughout the day.
As Sweden is an expensive country to visit, this certainly helps to keep the food costs down! Malmo is a lovely city to visit; most attractions and activities are within walking distance from the hotel. A hop-on-hop-off bus service is not available, but the city has a circle-line bus route (bus no 3 – at the central station) which allows you to get an overview of the city for about 22 SEK per person. This takes about an hour.
Room was silent when windows inside the block side. Others the room surfaces would need some maintenance. Breakfast was excellent and nicely served and hotel staff really friendly. Location if needed to visit evening at restaurants is also brilliant because everything is nearby.
The location is excellent a couple of minutes walk from the little square, 10 minutes from the station and with an abundance of restaurants in close proximity. Staff are very friendly and helpful, restaurant and large bar area, nice to sit here for a nightcap after a big day out.
Breakfast was good and the room whilst not “flash” met our needs with a comfortable bed and plenty of hot water. Paid parking is available in a secure garage adjacent to the hotel.
