“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Good hotel. Lovely food, very we'll cooked. Good conference facilities. Bathroom interesting with nothing quite fitting and the bath water just flowing from the bath onto the floor! (Does have a drain on the floor). Very comfortable stay. Would book again.

Great hotel on excellent location. I have stayed in many of the top 10 hotels in Uppsala and the Clarion is definitely in the top 3. The only minus is the size of the rooms. In that respect, the newer Raddison Blue near the train station is ahead, and in pricing about the same.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Stayed for one night, which was a Sunday. Colleague chose this hotel as told they did have a bar and we were keen to meet to discuss work. Turned up to very friendly staff and a cool looking lobby. The local area is dead on a Sunday evening and so the funky music from the Bose speakers was the life we needed. Sadly however the bar doesn't open on a Sunday. The staff did accommodate us though with drinks from reception but we all attacked our minibars as couldn't get any food.

Rooms are nicer than most other hotels I've stayed at in Sweden, however I seriously fell out with the telly and when I did win the battle with it the channels were minimal and not worth the effort. Breakfast was nice and wide ranging.

All in all it was ok and the staff are very attentive.

Room Tip: I was by the lift which I normally hate but surprisingly it wasn't noisy.

I had a decent room on the top floor. The room has a comfortable bed, modern furniture, good curtains. However, the bathroom appliances desperately need a renewal. They are shabby and a bit disgusting. The TV remote control could not start the TV. So, dear hotel manager, pay a bit more attention to the rooms. The lobby and breakfast area is lovely, good design, good choice of food-very comfortable!

A nice hotel. Comfortable room with nice decor. The bathroom felt a bit dated though.
Very friendly staff, both in reception and in breakfast area.
Breakfast lounge was really nicely decorated and everything looked tasted good. Could definitely stay here again.
Booking via the hotel's own website was expensive though so I booked through a hotel website and payed almost half the original price.

Hotel is for sleeping, right? The beds were bit soot soft for me, but rest of family was to bothered.
Restaurant was being renovated so no dinner this summer (we're offered discount to eat in restaurant access the street). Breakfast was fine with lots of choice.
Fitness room also under reconstruction: again discount offered to go to gym down the road.
Staff very friendly.
Pool was good for kids to play in, not for swimming: too small. Good facilities with seating and sauna close by.

This hotel is right downtown, close to the river, making it easy to walk to most of Uppsala's attractions. Additionally, the hotel offers one of the best breakfasts we have had during our European travels. And we found staff to be friendly and cooperative.

Room Tip: Some rooms are close to busy bars that are open until 3 a.m. or so. Ask for a room on a quieter sid...
