“Park Inn--home of very pleasant staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Uppsala is a walkable University town where life is laid-back compared to Stockholm, and so, it seems are the hotels. The Park Inn had very friendly service at the front desk by people who speak impeccable English. Small lobby with breakfast area greet the entrant. It looked as though it was very child friendly, as there were outdoor toys for the patio and a somewhat separate place for families w/children to eat which was equipped with play things. Our room was a "business" room so had some extras such as daily individual sized wine, peanuts, beer in the refrig for our benefit and many windows good for cross breezes (no A/C which I wouldn't have thought a problem but others in our group at different hotels complained, not so many windows). However, if someone was using the patio for a night cap and conversation, it was heard clearly in our room on the 6th floor, or any conversation on the street below---and traffic, which was very light as most people ride bicycles, also was noticeable. Sun really doesn't set end of June, but the curtains did a decent job of providing a level of darkness.

Room amenities were very sparse--simply a shower cap and Q-tip swabs--no body cream, no real shampoo and conditioner and actually no bar soap, only multipurpose liquid soap dispensers. There was a hair dryer mounted permanently outside the bathroom but the cord was long enough to stretch to a mirror with a little creativity.

Breakfast was a full offering including herring, Swedish pancakes, eggs, pastries, assorted veggies, sausages and on and on. It made it possible to skip lunch and maybe have a coffee later in the day.

Their bikes were not available for use at this time due to theft. Many place nearby rent them out for the day or series of days. I did lock mine outside and it was there the next morning.

We didn't have time for the Sauna, but I did look at the lower floor facilities and they seemed quite nice. What's Sweden w/o a sauna?

Location is quite good--right across from the central bus station and train station, so if you want to head out for the day, so convenient. Several good restaurants nearby, and a couple of blocks further expands the choice--grocery stores too, for picnicking supplies.

City and area Tourist Information office is just across the tracks as we found the front desk not as knowledgeable on bus and train schedules, local attractions. Very helpful.

Room Tip: You might ask for a room on the back side of the hotel where the setting sun at 10:30 at night is no...

Hotel very centrally located in Uppsala within ten minute walk to city center. Rooms very modern and well kept. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was wonderful with hot and cold foods, rolls and bread, juices and fruit. Had a dinner which was roast beef and very good. Pricey but so is all food in Sweden.

Quiet, convenient to the train station and town center. Excellent breakfast. Pleasant, helpful staff, though had to lug all the luggage myself. Good, free wifi. This is definitely one of the better run Park Inns that I have stayed in (not by choice, but for conferences). The rooms are just okay, but there still is a little tired feel to the whole experience--the linen is a little bedraggled, the mattress sags, the towels are cheap and not very crisp, no black out curtains so the summer sun peeps in at 4 in the morning, the lighting at night is on the dingy side. Adequate for a couple of nights.

Spending three nights in this hip college town, we discovered this very clean, well-managed hotel near the train station. Great location, helpful staff, boutique-style lobby that was quiet and restful. Rooms were small, Wi-Fi included, tiny bathroom and the complimentary breakfast was tasty, tastefully presented and substantial with many options of fruits, meats, eggs, pancakes for the guests. Simple European hotel, good prices, clean, great value in a nice town.

First time in a Park Inn and pleasantly suprised. Just opposite station, easy walk to town. Great food, and comfortable modern room. Stayed on eighth floor so quiet but with view of station shops and distant view across town. Small gym and a sauna.

Very good location for travellers by train to Uppsala and good prize compared to room standard and breakfast.
The diversity in the breakfast is nice. The rooms are big with good bathrooms. The staff is friendly, and supportive if one needs to store some luggage until it is time to take the train back home again. The location makes it easy to take a short walk to the rebuilded. old railway station, for very nice toast in the restaurant in the evening,

This hotel is just an average place to stay. The breakfast was good and the location was also great. But, it is an older hotel that is in the shadow of the much nicer radisson blu hotel that is right across the street.

All in all, you should problably save your money and choose the radisson park inn over the radisson blu.
