It can't be'på Sverige', but can be 'på hotell'. Does all thé countries go with 'I', and all gatan, hotell,hus med 'på'?

It's "i" for countries but "på" for islands, e.g. "i Sverige" and "på Öland". You normally say "i ett hus" but "på" about shops (which are in a house), like "på HM" and "på IKEA" :). And yes, it's "på hotell" and for example "på Storgatan".
