    « Wonderful staff »

    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.

    « Expensive but with great service »

    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.

    « Work turning food occasion... »

    I was there last summer and am going back this to work on my emails. As it turned and as I am not frequenlty back in my old country, you can't help but notice the great smell of food when dishes are brought in from the kitchen, or found in the open buffet and seeing all the people coming ot lunch, coffee or after a day on vacation at nearby beaches - and they maintain order. I go for a traditional Swedish meal of pork filet in Bearnaise sauce, oregano covered fried tomato or a Loevbiff - a thin, fried beef filet with fried potatoes and a beer. Coffee added as a Cappuccino rounds it up. Now I am coming back for seconds!! And a good work out with my wireless internet needs taking in the harbour view...I can't but feel lucky!

    « Fantastic view »

    The hotel was built in the middle of the 18 century and is located at the harbour. The view is very nice but some rooms have a view to a backyard. The breakfast is ordinary. The hotel is about 800 m from the city centre and the railway station. Wifi free
