This is a relatively small hotel along the river in Uppsala. The room is spacious. There was a lack of counter space in the bathroom. There was no refrigerator in the room. The hotel was secure. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was typical for Europe with a wide selection. I did not eat lunch or dinner here....

This hotell has character and charm. The interiors are classy, a kind of environment where I personally feel relaxed. I booked a superior room. The view over the river was very nice, the feeling being enhanced by vivid sunlight (unfortunately not a guarantee in Sweden). The bathroom was perhaps a bit small but missed nothing at all, of course very...

Dating originally from the early 1900s, this small boutique-style hotel is really quite exceptional and ranks very highly among my favourites anywhere. My room was overlooking the river, and was warm and comfortable. The room was not large, but was decorated appealingly and the bathroom was modern. The lounge and breakfast rooms are very pleasant and the breakfast selection impressive....

A grate place to stay in Uppsala. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Situated close to main attractions of the city and bus, train stations (just 10 min walking distance). Very good breakfast, where you can find also Scandinavian options (herring or vaasa bread). Would strongly recommend!

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...

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...

If one has the occasion to be in Uppsala the Grand Hotel Hornan is very pleasant place to stay.

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.
