What a hotel and what a service in a place not on the "hot-spot" for the main stream travellers - but that is WHY you MUST go here. This small south-swedish town is a joy to visit. And if you drop off other tourist-traps the place to stay is with the good people of Hotel Svea. The rooms is not five stars but this one place I couldn't care less because of the nice people (which IS five stars people!!!!) at Hotel Svea. I booked through at booking site on a fixed price but got the date wrong with no refund - but the nice people of Hotel Svea fixed with no discussion...woahh! The hotel has a really nice back yard with full bar service and the breakfast was much better than many other hotels! This is one of my best stay at a hotel - ever!

Booked a table for a party of three to see football,arrived paid and for the food and drinks,so far so good. Ordered hamburgers all round after a short wait arrived meal, to say what we ordered was a disappointment cold dry burger no dressing to speak of,fries cold totally the whole meal a disappointment being honest this was the worst burger I’ve ever tasted. Shame as the hotel restaurant has got such good reviews.

Very well received and guided by the reception, friendly and helpfull people all we meet. Place is well located in Simrishamn with a beautiful view of the sea/marina. Hotels was nice and clean all over and the beds amongst the better encountered. Breakfast was nice and just above average. Closes at 09:00 and not much to do if you want a beer or drink after that - keep in mind.

The Svea is a famous hotel, legendary even, for well read Swedes, and has reached almost cult status in older literature from Southern Sweden. That kind of thing is usually not a good thing for the guests; legend tends to turn into expensive tourist traps (such as the Raffles or the Negresco). Not so the Svea. It surely could do with a thorough refurbishing; the finish has a dated feeling to it with plastic carpet in the bathrooms and structural wallpaper á lá 1987. There is absolutey nowhere to put down your things in the bathroom, either. The interior decorator (from 1987) obviously never heard of shelves. Having said that, this places still earns a 4-star review. It has pride of place in pretty, cobbled Simrishamn, with a lovely harbour view, it has free parking, an OK breakfast restaurant, outdoor seating and a good restaurant. Above all: Svea has the kindest, sweetest, most welcoming staff we have ever met! All of them were just fabulous. And not in a fawning way - they all seem genuinley nice. Extra points for being dog-friendly.

We only stayed here one night and we did not have an ocean view which might have brought the grade up to four stars, but we had a very nice stay!
The rooms are clean and cosy, but the bathroom could definitely be updated! Some tiles on the floor and a new shower head would do wonders.
The staff is super friendly though, and the breakfast buffé was great (especially with that ocean view!). Good location too.
