We stayed for three nights in early November. The room was cozy, and I really liked the corridors, the breakfast area and the bar. I would recommend this hotel and I would really like to stay there again.

A lovely place to stay, right in the centre of Uppsala, by the Fyris river. It occupies a lovely old building and the public areas have been meticulously maintained and decorated to reflect the elegance of a earlier era. Every detail of the breakfast room and the popular bar suggests loving attention and careful workmanship (though I have to say... More

This hotel is situated in the centre of Uppsala. In that sense a perfect hotell. Althogh the rooms are a bit small and the rooms could need a freshen up. On the other hand the staff is friendly and helpful which makes it worth a stay.

This is an old hotel and apparently very popular for weddings. We spent only one night there, in a rather Spartan, though clean and quiet twin room with a view of the charming river. A colorful picture on the wall and a couple of equally colorful mats on the floor would have livened up the room a little -- we... More

If one has the occasion to be in Uppsala the Grand Hotel Hornan is very pleasant place to stay. The hotel has great character and fabulous warm and accommodating staff who went out of their way to serve us a delicious plate of meats and cheeses and large glass of red wine to spirit us through our late arrival.

Neat and tidy hotel with good service. The bar is open until very late. Rooms comfortable and Windows that open. Breakfast included was sufficient and had variety. Location is excellent and provides a great central spot to explore Uppsala.

We spent one night here, travelling on holiday. We were given a warm and very courteous welcome on arrival and were able to negotiate a parking space in the small hotel car park. Our corner room was very spacious, with a small balcony overlooking the river and elegant, tasteful decor. Wifi access worked fairly well on the corridor side of... More

I used to stay here regularly when my company had its office on Bangaardsgatan but in recent years have been staying elsewhere. Not a great deal has changed in the years since I've been here but the horribly heavy keys have been replaced with key cards. Great!

This hotel is an old establishment with the elegance that comes with that. Its location is central, along the river. The parking is not very convenient however and the extreme heat and lack of air conditioning was a bit punishing. Breakfast was fine and the staff was great as has been our experience throughout Scandinavia. We would stay again...hopefully when... More
