“Nice hotel in a central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

Even though the Hotel is not near the Central Station it's still very central located. Our rooms was very clean and roomy, I have nothing to complain about.

We stayed here in the middle of December and the Breakfast buffe with a "Christmas touch" were excellent. so many good tasting dishes to choose between and it made me
feel at "home" after living many years abroad.

This hotel was not any special but there was not a single thing I minded about it - it was clean and comfortable, located in the centre, the stuff at the front desk was very helpful and the breakfasts were very very nice.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2008

Our superior room was located on the 4th floor with an excellent view of the Botanic Gardens.

Contrary to what the other reviewers have said, our bathroom was big and there was a bathtub with a shower curtain and a washbasin with a table top that runs along the entire length of one side of the bathroom.

The room was reasonably big. We had an extra rollaway bed in addition to the double bed, and there was still ample room for 2 suitcases and for walking. The wardrobe had 4 or 5 doors, more than enough space for hanging clothes. There was also an ironing board and iron, which we didn't use.

Maybe it was because we had booked a superior room, as opposed to a standard one.

Check-in was hassle-free and I found the staff at reception friendly. We encountered 3 of them during our stay.

The hotel is not near the Uppsala central station. It is a 15-min walk away, or 2 bus-stops from the central station. The bus stop for Bus # 110 and # 115 to Gamla Uppsala is a 1-minute walk away from the hotel entrance/ exit, which I found very convenient, so being away from the central station didn't matter because there was no need to take the bus from its terminal.

Internet access is not free of charge.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2007

The hotel is big, clean, within walking distance to nearly everything in Uppsala, with excellent breakfast and good size bedrooms. But the service is impersonal, the long corridors and room 'decoration' remind a university hall of residence rather than a 4 star rated hotel. Bathrooms are ridiculously small, with a 36 cms wash-basin and no shower cabin: you simply douse yourself where you would stand for the basin or use the toilet, with a glass half-door to prevent flooding ...and a 'squidgy' to wipe the floor afterwards!
The room was a bit draughty and the heater under the windows disappear when you draw the heavy curtains at night.
OK for a very short business stay but perhaps not for a longer leisurely one.

The hotel is well located within easy walking distance of the city centre and attractions.

It was clean and the room was very spacious. It was reasonably basic, to be expected of a mainly business hotel. reception were helpful and friendly and the bar has a lovely ambience.

The hotel room was very boring. Clean, but small and average.

What was special was the excellent breakfast provided. It made up for everything else.
THANKS.
