It's clean and the staff are politely helpful. The bed in my single room was one weak point - narrow and soft. As other reviewers say, it's no frills, but I found the breakfast good, and the location is brilliant. My room was quite spatious and light, at the back (much quieter). Another weaker point is the shower/bathroom, which was...

This property is a simple, very clean and well maintained small hotel in a great location near the university campus. The room I had was not very large and I felt like I was dodging the doors most of the time while in the room as there are two back to back near the bathroom entrance. Very tiny bathroom with...

This hotel is run by the university and provides a very friendly and welcoming home. It is next to the cathedral and very close to the Gustavianum and the university library. Downtown is just a quick stroll away. The rooms are functional, quiet and WLAN is free in the whole building. Coffee, tea, cookies and fruits are offered at all...

As other reviewers have noted, this is a no frills hotel but I would recommend it for anybody looking for a friendly, clean, functional hotel in a good location. I stayed there for a conference and found the multi-lingual staff very friendly and helpful, the room spacious (single bed but room also had a desk and a sofa), the bathroom...

The Akademihotellet is well situated in Uppsala. The room was basic, but that was all I wanted for this trip. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Wifi was very good (and free). Highlight of the stay was the breakfast which was the best I had in Sweden.

I would call it more a dormitory than a hotel. The price rather very high for the standard. My room was very cold, with a tiny bed. The stuff very polite, location very good. Breakfast was good. One has access to coffee and tea all the time, which is very nice. Great view (very close to the cathedral). Has eduroam...

Perfectly ok, warm and comfortable but I was at the front of the building and lots of traffic noise throughout the night and early morning. Lots of academic types obviously visiting the University and breakfast was again reminiscent of a catered hall of residence as opposed to a normal hotel. Slef service buffet, shared tables and clear away the crockery.

We had the privilege of staying at this wonderful location for a period of just under four weeks in May/June 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodation, which was a small apartment perfectly suited for a couple travelling. The bedroom to the left of the entrance contained a sofa bed and desk, a duchess for clothing, as well as a Scandinavian...
