We have spent a fairly pleasing week in this homely hotel near Uppsala domkyrka. Everything was simple, clean and functional. Substantial breakfast, coffee&cookies and smiling staff at any time! If we would go to Uppsala once again, we know exactly where to accommodate. Jarmila&Vladimir_Prague

We stayed for one night in Uppsala and this hotel's location was absolutely central , right behind the Cathedral with breath-taking scenery. Room was clean and cozy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was basic but lovely.

I spend 2 nights at the hotel visiting the university. My expectatuons were not high because of the very attractive offer I got. Location was very nearby the university, 10 min walk from the trainstation, , nice green area and I got a light and spacious single room. Bathroom is small but that is the only minor thing I can...

I spent almost a week in this small but cosy hotel near the University of Uppsala. The room, though a trifle congested, was clean and well-maintained. It afforded an excellent view of the cathedral in the vicinity. The breakfast (included in the tariff) was tasty and substantial. Coffee and cookies were available on the house throughout the day! Wifi, a...

The room was rather small (2 persons' room), the bathroom also, but everything was very functional. The view towards the cathedral was amazing, and the location was superb. Parking on the back yard (daily fee). Free WiFi, the breakfast was good, and the staff was helping us with several small questions. We were part of a larger group of 19...

This place has a great location for visitors of this ancient and beautiful city. Located near the church and university, it is walking distance from almost all attractions. The rooms are spacious and warm and the service is great. I highly recommend this place for any visitor.

I stayed here while visiting colleagues at Uppsala University. The location is great. It is close to downtown, 15 min from the train station and next to several of the major attractions in Uppsala. The rooms are a bit on the small side and I was underwhelmed by the size and quality of the bathroom. The bed was tiny and...

This hotel is located in the historic center of Uppsala, just a few hundred meters from the University library, the cathedral and Gustavianum. Rooms are quite OK, but nothing special. The toilet is quite small. The rooms are equipped with free wifi. Breakfast is a small buffet of what I would call a standard Swedish breakfast buffet. That means cereals,...

I loved the view from my room, I could see the church towers and it was really quiet. The room was pleasant, the shower a bit "sad" but clean. Staff was nice and everyting went smoothly. Breakfast was quite generous too. There were some people running around at night, slamming doors, reason unknown, but I cant blame the hotel for...
