We booked this hotel on a bum steer from Frommer's, which called it the best choice in Uppsala. If that is the case,the door is wide open for a competitor to come in. This soulless establishment uses a hectoring, self-righteous green aesthetic to justify its habit of nickel-and-diming its customers for everything. Log onto the hotel's wireless network and you'll be greeted by messages instructing you on why the hotel does not provide toiletries in the bathroom and the importance of using your towels more than one day. It might be more believable if the hotel did not charge for fruit in the basket at the front desk (5 kroners per piece) or tell you that you can get any toiletries you might have forgotten from the front desk....for a fee. As if this weren't irritating enough, the bathrooms are cramped (while sitting on the toilet, you can almost wash your hands in the sink in front of you and water from the shower seeps onto the floor of the bath) and the rooms are small and furnished with cheap furniture that looks like it was purchased 20 years ago at Ikea. The only real redeeming features are its good location in the commercial area and a bountiful breakfast. This was the only place in Sweden which offers foods geared to dietary problems such as lactose-intolerance in addition to the regular fare. Maybe Frommer is right and it's the best in Uppsala. Just don't expect to like it.
