“In decline”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Have been staying at this hotel on an irregular basis for several years and feel that the standard is declining in a general sort of way. The room furnishings are in need of an update and the old TV could be changed to a larger flat screen on one of the walls. The breakfast is still good - but could improve enormously if the chef could learn to make scrambled eggs. The flower beds outside and the stone terrace to the right of the entrance are covered in weeds and, thus, add to the general impression.of carelessness.
However - the service is still good and the hotel(motel?) is still situated in an excellent location with easy access from the new roundabout and with frequent buses to the city centre. The hotel chain name of 'Scandic' used to be a guarantee of good quality and something is beginning to go awry here.

Recently stayed here for 4 nights. Service is always great. Restaurant has a great menu and serves good quality meals.
Hotel is located not to far from the centrum so it's a good location.

Just very basic Scandic hotel outside of the city center. If you need to stay over night and continue your trip, this could be an option. Hotel needs some renovation, in my opinion, in all corners. It is used and you can see it. Room was very standard with normal equipments. There was not anything special. Hotel was groudy but still all services worked very smoothly. Breakfast nice Scandic standard which many other West-South European hotels should learn more. Easy to find the hotel and quick access to E4 highway. Most propably I will stay again due to frequent visits in Uppsala.

This hotel has a very strong prison feeling about it. Long corridors with lots of doors, views towards other hotel sections where you can "feel" the same corridors running up and down, and to top it all, a high fence around 3/4 of the of the hotel...The rooms are basic and a bit run down and the hotel is placed outside everything in Uppsala, only close to the highway and a mosque. Breakfast is above average when it comes to hotel breakfasts in Sweden, but a little bellow Scandic Hotels normal standard. Try to get a room on the second level or above to get away from ground level. A small gym, Internet computer in the lobby and friendly staff. Free and large parking just outside.

From my room on the ground floor there is a splendid view of the Statoil petrol station. Passers-by also have a good view of the room. Security will be an issue if the window is left opened (no air conditioning). The hotel itself is situated by a main road at the outskirt of the city. This is the kind of hotels that cost-cutting companies will send travelling staff to make sure that they will not get any comfort beyond what is absolutely necessary. While the breakfast is OK when it is just a matter of laying out food on the table, meals at the restaurant are really terrible. The reception staff are efficient, knowledgeable and freindly, so on the whole I give this hotel a 3 instaed of a 2.
