Svenska Hotels is amongst the fastest growing chain of luxury hotels in the world. Focused on small-format with the emphasis being on highly personalized and exclusive services for top-end business travellers, Svenska has carved out a unique positioning in the market.
While none of the major global hotel chains have shown inclination or expertise in the economics and viability of designing, developing, managing and marketing high-end luxury hotels with less than 100 rooms, Svenska has focused on mastering this niche space.

With this laser-sharp focus on small-format properties, Svenska has been able to establish unparalleled expertise in this segment.
Whether it’s the staffing or the financial management or sales or marketing or public relations, Svenska understands the small-format space and its unique requirements for success. We have also established partnerships with amongst the strongest network of service providers and consultants in the hospitality space (see our Partners), thereby bringing in expertise, knowledge and distribution capabilities that independent boutique hotels can only dream of.
