“Great service, very basic rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

The staff in this hotel were excellent, whether reception, restaurant or housekeeping. All very friendly and professional. The hotel is in a good location in Uppsala, a short walk from the train station and main attractions. Also close to a variety of restaurants.
The room was clean but basic and lacking in personality but other than that this was a great stay and the room was comfortable.

The room was nice and cozy, it could get kinda cold, but it's comfortable. The bed was good, so were the sheets. The bathroom was clean and well lit, the shower was good. For the rather low price, the breakfast was actually great. The TV program was enjoyable and the staff were nice. The hotel itself isn't too far from the central station, and it's in the same street as several shops, fast food chains and banks.

Room Tip: The double rooms are nice.

We spent one relaxing night at the Scandic hotel. Check-in was
fast, the reception is friendly and professional. Even though
we had booked a double room, an email was enough to tell them
that we needed an extra bed.
Wi-fi worked well, room was spacious, breakfast was rich.
Only possible flaw: upon check-in, the reception told
us that our room had already been charged on the credit card
that I had given upon booking the room. Since we wanted to
pay separately, it was a bit of a nuisance.
Nothing else to complain about, as hotel is located close
to the train/bus station and is therefore handy for going to
Arlanda airport.
Overall, we're very satisfied and would return here.

Exceptionally nice and helpful staff and the free use of the hotel's 2 bicycles are the pluses here. The hotel is standard issue Scandic chain. We were disappointed that there were no drink making facilities in the rooms nor any drawers for our clothes. There were only a few loose hangers on a rail. The bedroom was clean but the bathroom had seen better days.The shower, as they always are in Sweden, was powerful.
The 'bar' was a drawer of drinks - no gin and no port! More disappointing though was the breakfast which was geared towards Swedes' preferences for cold meat, buns and breads. The bacon and sausage that were available tasted very strange and we found the few cereals on offer were of the "natural organic" variety and extremely bland in taste.
Saddest of all though, was the inability to get a cup of tea! Hot water is available 'on tap' all day but is only about 90° so the sugar doesn't dissolve but forms a kind of scum on the top and the tea-bags were those disgusting Liptons ones! We did find a bag of PG tips in the shop opposite but the water was never hot enough from the machine to make a proper cup. Coffee was not an alternative as the Swedes prefer much stronger coffee than we do and we found it undrinkable and spent a small fortune on lattes in Wayne's Cafe opposite.
I believe that the Scandic hotels are very popular with Swedes en route to their summer houses etc but a Brit who was thinking this would be a Holiday Inn style stay would be disappointed.

Room Tip: Don't expect to be able to get a good cup of tea in Sweden! (Or anything resembling an English b...

Scandic hotels are my first choice as I know what I get - clean hotel and rooms and good service and usually good value for money.
This was my first stay at Uplandia. Outside and inside looks are nothing special. Rooms are the usual light Scandinavian color scheme. Good room and bed. Attentive service.
I had a meal in the restaurant and was very satisfied with quality and service.

Very friendly staff. Nice and clean rooms - newly renovated it seems - a bit small but ok.. Centrally located, within walking distance of several good restaurants. Breakfast buffet was good, with a wide selection.

Arriving at Scandic Uplandia, I was greeted by a nice receptionist. She quickly had the check in done, and a parking permit issued.

The room had a small problem with a lose toilet seat cover, which I pointed out. She quickly switched us to a new room, which lead me to mixing up the key cards for the rest of the stay.

Anyway, the rooms - both of them - were nice and clean, though I must say that they were a bit small. The bathroom had few places to put my toiletries and I tended to splash the bathroom when showering. The same can be said for the room itself, though that was less of a problem.

In conclusion, I'd probably stay there again. The hotel is located right in the middle of town, which suited me. The staff was excellent, and while the rooms could have been a tad bigger, a friendly face makes up for that.
