We rather enjoyed our stay at the Continental. The location can't be beat if visiting the old town Center. Steps from the front door and you are on the walking streets into city center square. The room we had included a small sitting area. The beds are most comfortable and the hotel is quiet considering its age. It is updated... More

Like so many places, a disproportionate balance of the budget was spent on the reception area and dining room (all marble staircase and stained glass), leaving rather less than ideal for the rooms upstairs, which though moderately comfortable, are very dated, like the bathroom. It was a novelty to be handed an actual key to the door, and had to... More

We stayed here before in 2009 and this time paid a bit extra to get a larger room. Our room 221 had the privilege of having private access to the Hotel balcony and was very spacious indeed. Very friendly and efficient service. Internet was free and quite fast. The ambience of the hotel is superb, with classical decoration, yet modern... More

This is my first choise of Hotel, whenever I visit the Southern parts of Sweden. Friendly and wonderful staff. Comfortable and lovely rooms. Good continental breakfast. This Hotel is located in the heart of Ystad.

We really enjoyed our stay - friendly and helpful staff, good location near the city and just a few steps to the sea. Big, comfortable rooms. A continental and tasty breakfast. We all loved the big stairs with the beautiful windows.

Ystad is a charming mediaeval town in the South of Sweden that's becoming more popular as a tourist destination thanks to the Inspector Wallender books and TV series (Lassgard, Hendriksen and Branagh). There aren't a great number of hotels, so the Continental, the grandest, was the only one that had rooms when we booked. It looks great from outside and... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night during a quick stopover in Ystad to see Wallander settings and experience some of Kurt's town. There don't seem to be too many places in town to stay, as it is a very small town. This hotel is billed as the nicest, and almost certainly the most expensive. It is quite... More

We were on a Kurt Wallander tour, looking at places Kurt "lived" (he's a character in a series of detective novels), worked, found dead bodies, etc! In the books, Kurt has eaten at Continental, and the impressive interior is mentioned. We were not disappointed! The decor is overwhelming and stunning. Quite old fashioned, but with such warmth and beauty! We... More

We stayed here for two nights as we wanted to include a visit to Bornholm along with our tour around Sweden but had no great expectations based on other TA reviews. The hotel was very historic and traditional and elegant and though run by a small staff was better than we expected. We had supper at the hotel as there... More

I stayed 1 week in this wonderful traditional hotel which harks back to the luxury of former times. The staff were incredibly polite and exceedingly friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Close to the train station, well placed for several restaurants and bars, rooms were clean, light and airy, and I slept soundly in a nice double bed that... More
