Uppsala's landmark hotel is a very comfortable spot. Friendly staff, good rooms, great breakfast. Restaurant has had a cool makeover. Bar nice too. As a regular visitor, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Me and my husband stayed here for an anniversary. The spa was small but clean and relaxing. The restaurant "Kitchen and Table" was very price worthy. A great meal!

A good quality hotel close to the center of Uppsala. Bit of a walk from the train station though. Rooms were good and breakfast was great. Quite pricey. My stay was paid by employer, if paying myself I would probably stay in a much cheaper place, but that's just my preference.

Really good hotel and we slept ok although beds were a bit hard, but the real treat is the weekend brunches. I tell you - there is nothing missing on that buffet table! Be sure to book in advance or to be there ahead of opening if you have not booked. Well worth the money.

The hotel is conveniently located in the center of the city within walking distance of many restaurants, stores and sites (e.g. you can get to the cathedral in under ten minutes by foot).

Great hotel on excellent location. I have stayed in many of the top 10 hotels in Uppsala and the Clarion is definitely in the top 3. The only minus is the size of the rooms. In that respect, the newer Raddison Blue near the train station is ahead, and in pricing about the same.
