Hotell Mårtenson: A hotel built on a love story

Halmstad is one of Sweden’s most visited summer destinations. It is located on the west coast, with close proximity to many beaches, golf, and nature, packed with history, and decorated with old Swedish charm. In the middle of it, you’ll find Hotell Mårtenson – a 160-year-old establishment that provides great food, a great atmosphere, and a great love story.
“Our hotel is built on a mid-20s century love story between Hotell Mårtenson’s then manager Franz, and one of the hotel’s cleaners, Greta. They lived at the premises from around 1950, and their love for food, service, and each other runs through everything we do,” says Moa Bävermo, marketing coordinator at Hotell Mårtenson.
It feels like home
Hotell Mårtensson consists of a variety of cosy hotel rooms, as well as Franz’s bistro, Franz’s bar, Greta’s café, and Greta’s roof terrace where guests can enjoy modern flavour combinations and exciting cocktails. Their menus feature the best from the ocean combined with local produce, with a mix of classic dishes and innovative new experiences. From September, you will be able to visit Greta’s café for Afternoon Tea.
“We want our guests to feel at home. You can enjoy a good night’s sleep, wake up and enjoy our bistro and café like it’s your living room, and catch the summer vibes on our rooftop or at the bar,” explains Bävermo. And before you leave, you can always pop by Greta’s Blommor, a flower and interior design shop which is open 24-7, and take a piece of the historic love story with you.
