I stayed here 2 nights and am not sure if I would stay again. The room was very clean and new, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was very good, with a wide selection of items to choose from. I really liked the location, as it was easy to find and close enough to everything to easily walk. I had a car with me, and found parking in the main central garage across the street was quite easy (get a pass from the front desk at check in).
The downsides are that the room was just tiny and a strange design. The closet was about 4 inches deep—enough to hang a shirt and pants but that’s it. There was absolutely no space in the room to put my suitcase, so it was in the middle of the little bit of floor space there was, waiting for me to step over. No luggage rack to set it on, probably because there was no space for one. The “desk” was a flip down wall unit – which was also in the way covering the only bit of floor space. Basically, you could sit on the bed but don’t expect to have another other space to move around. I like to do some stretches in the morning; I couldn’t do them without hitting my hands and arms on things.
Really, the oddest and most frustrating part of the design was the bathroom. First, it is not separate from the rest of the room, so if there’s more than 1 person you will have zero privacy. Second, there is just a sliding glass door that either slides in front of the shower or the toilet. Again, no privacy if sharing a room. Third, the sliding door didn’t come close to meeting the floor and/or the tile floor wasn’t sloped properly, so taking a shower meant your toilet area and the entire bathroom area was soaking wet.
Given these limitations, I think I will look at other Uppsala options and do a much more careful comparison.
