Hotel History: The house which today is the hotel was originally built in the middle of the sixties and homed the employees of Kockumsvarvet. All rooms had their own little kitchenettes, very luxurious for its time. When Kockums decided to leave the business in 1977 the house took the shape of a hotel and was made a part of the "Sara" corporation, still with the kitchenettes. In 1983 the hotel went through a massive renovation and the small kitchens were removed. After having been a part of Reso Hotels and then for a couple of years without belonging to a chain, we are since 1997 a part of First Hotels. In 2008 the hotel was again refurbished both interior and exterior. The name Jörgen Kock comes from the medeival mayor who is considered the man who made Malmö the great city it is today. Jörgen Kock who was German, be came the city´s coin master in 1617 and later mayor in 1623. He was a close friend of the danish king Christian II and had a big influence in the meetings with Gustav Wasa about Sweden and Denmarks collaboration The Area: Malmö is Swedens third largest city and shopping is awesome and there are several international acclaimed art halls for modern art. The west port and dock are today two of the nicest residential areas of Malmö. Many companies have recognized the location around the hotel as one of the best in Malmö and that will make the area even more attractive in the next few years to come. The city tunnels underground station is just by the hotel and in the west harbor area housing projects with the ocean as neighbor is planned.
