Great location, great atmosphere. A family run hotel with a bar, where you can sit and relax, having a drink or a beer. We stayed at the first floor in a room with space, hight to the cieling, and with a view over the small river. Very nice armosphere. Good ordinary breakfast, (did not have scrambled eggs, bacon). Very helpful staff. Good fenced parking on the backside (take care it´s a narrow entrence). Just go around the corner of the hotel and you are on the main walkingstreet of Uppsla with many shops. Good not to have to use the car. We certainly would stay there again

Nice location, great atmosphere. Hotel looks old but is well maintained. Very nice armosphere. I have stayed in almost all hotels in uppsala and this one is absolutely one of the top. Certainly in relation to the price which is reasonable.

This hotel is situated centrally and at the same time very nicely in a quiet street partly overlooking the river. We got upgraded to a spacious, beautiful and serene corner room with a lot of greenery and water outside our windows. We also had a little balcony overlooking the river with chairs and a little table. The sleep quality was excellent, the staff very forthcoming and nice. The breakfast room felt a bit old fashioned in a nice way and the breakfast buffé was tasty with homebaked bread. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for river view.

We have been in STockholm several times so we chose to take the short 40 minute drive to stay in this lovely small town. the hotel had big rooms reasonably priced and a very nice breakfast. Helen spoke perfect English and directed us to a great Greek Restaurant in walking distance and then to the church and castle. A beautiful location!

Stayed here on business for a night and didn't really know what to expect. Inside the hotel is quite grand and the room was very serviceable. It wasn't modern as such (and intended not to be), but had some lovely furniture to compliment it. The bathroom had old styling but again this wasn't in the 'tired' sense of the word. Wifi worked perfectly and had a good night sleep. Breakfast was great too - no complaints at all. Easy check in and check out. Would definitely stay here again at the right price.

The hotel is very elegant and the breakfast exceeded our expectations. Staff is really friendly and our view was great (looking at the river and seeing the upper side of the castle).

Room Tip: We had a nice room with view on the river (room 211)

My wife and I stayed there for almost a week, Oct 17-22, 2011 and had a delightful experience. The hotel is a piece of Uppsala past, a bit on the worn side but very charming. The staff was excellent, the service very fine. Our room, a corner room with a balcony was large and very appealing, though closet space was a bit limited and the bathroom small--rather typical of older European hotels. It had a nice bar area,the breakfast area was very appealing and the breakfast was ample and good--typical for northern. European countries--a large buffet with almost everything one would wish. It was a short walk to the train station, which has very good connections to Stockholm (40 minutes) and the Airport (20 minutes). There were many good and interesting restaurants near and even the state owned bottle shop was only three or four blocks away (it's the only one in town and is open from 10AM to 7PM, M-Sat--so be aware that if you want wine in your room at a relatively modest price buy it there). Warning--Sweden, at least for Americans is very expensive.

Room Tip: As said above, the double rooms with the small balconies--they have a great view of the river and th...
