“Clean modern hotel, let down by poor bedroom design”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

This hotel has a nice clean modern feel to it. It was mostly pretty good.

However, the bedroom was rather poorly designed. There was a dreadful lack of storage space. I was only staying for a single night, and I still didn't have room to unpack my kit. If you are staying for a few days, then be prepared to live out of your suitcase rather than unpack.

There was a small amount of hanging space (adequate for an overnight stay, but would probably be too small if you're staying for a few days and plan to change your clothes every now and again), but no drawer space.

Apart from that, the hotel was fine. There was free wifi, which seemed reasonably fast. It logged me out and made me log back in at one stage, but apart from that, was reliable. The bed was nice and comfortable. The staff were helpful. Breakfast was good.

If you're arriving in Uppsala by train, the location really couldn't be better: directly opposite the train station. Uppsala is not a big place, so walking to the centre takes only a few minutes.

New and very good hotel in the center of Uppsala close to the railway station. Really good service and great staff. Unfortunately we did not have time to use the fitness center. The room was good in size and absolutely quiet despite the railway passing close to the hotel. Breakfast was good even though the coffee machine turned out to be a bottle neck during this weekend morning.

Clean trendy rooms. Relativly quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast and close to all amenities. This was my fith or so stay and not my last for sure! Really pleased with the closeness to trains and busses.

Radisson Blue in Uppsala is one of the best hotels in town from my experiences. The hotel is conveniently located, it is very close to the Uppsala train station. The service at this hotel is really good and all the people there were courteous.

Very nice hotel, next to the central train station. Rooms pretty large for Europe, nice, and very clean. Breakfast good but not spectacular. Fitness center nice with very good view but only three machines.

This hotel had its good points (pretty good breakfast buffet, and a new hotel), but it needs to work on a few things. The staff in the restaurant should never elbow out patrons at the buffet, and they need more staff to clear tables and replenish food: the restaurant was definitely understaffed. One day housekeeping forgot to clean our room. There is no air-conditioning, just a kind of air-circulation system that cannot cope with unusually hot summer temperatures; the windows don't open, so the room was uncomfortably warm in August. Standard rooms have no fridge, which would have been nice to have. The hotel is out the back of the train station, on the next block to the Park Inn. Next time, we'll stay at the Park, as the rooms are cheaper and everything else about the hotel is comparable. The Radisson Blu is not bad, but they could do better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from elevators, as music plays outside the elevators. A room with a view of the...

This hotel was recommended to us by our son who lives and works in Uppsala. It was the newest hotel we have ever stayed in and it showed. The beds were so comfortable, covers and pillows great. Wet area shower was a bit scary as I felt that I might slip. Used the bathmat to soak up excess water. Breakfasts were amazing, such choice and catering for my Gluten free needs well. Wifi available in the hotel but not outside in the courtyard. Room absolutely quiet; we didn't hear any outside noise. Very handy to railway station and a 5 minute walk to the shopping centre, restaurant and tourist sights. Good hot coffee available in computer room, free access to computer and internet. Supermarket in basement of hotel next door. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Think all the rooms would be good. Must be triple glazed.
