Good Hotel in UppsalaPosted Jun 25, 2011
Nice location near University, easy walk from the train station. Nice neghborhood. Room a litte bit worn, especially bathroom. Like most hotels, bathroom exhaust fan broken. Nothing serious. Great breakfast buffet included in room rate. AC worked but noisy; opening windows cooled room quickly (temps were cool but humid, room gets stuffy fast). University was not in session so street quiet, don't know how much street noise there would be with students in town. Hoped for early checkin (we got there at 13:30 after overseas flight) but room not ready until 3. This may be typical of Sweden, same at the other two hotels we stayed at--room not ready early-- so not a negative in itself for this hotel. Staff pleasant and helpful. Overall, a positive experience, we would certainly recommend the hotel and stay there again.

Clarion in Uppsala - beware of street noise!Posted Jun 2, 2011 on Hotels.com
The Clarion in Uppsala is a very nice hotel - close to the train station, breakfast included, comfortable rooms (although smaller than what we're used to, as is usual when traveling in Europe). There's just one problem - if you have a room facing Draggarbrunsgatan, there is a restaurant/bar that plays VERY loud music right across the street, and you can hear it all in your room, even with the windows closed and the AC turned on to create white noise. When we stayed, unfortunately, the hotel was practically full, and so we didn't have the option on our first night to switch to a room facing the courtyard, away from the noise. The staff tried to be helpful, and confided in us that this has been a big problem in the past, and that the hotel is planning on replacing all the windows to try to reduce the noise in the rooms facing Draggarbrunnsgatan, but for myself, I would NOT book a room at this hotel again unless I knew I would be able to have a room with a courtyard view. Vacation time is just too precious to waste because you can't sleep due to crazy techno music across the street.

Disappointed with 4-star hotelPosted Sep 18, 2008
The first thing we saw when we entered the room was the duct tape on the wood floor that held a lose panel in place. Two nights on the extremely uncomfortable beds left us with sore backs. The electrical outlet in the bathroom did not work. The drinking glasses were dirty. The pot to heat water for the instant coffee in the room was not clean. The walls were dirty. The expensive dinner in the hotel restaurant made both of us sick. Why is it that in a country where mosquitos are common there are no screens on the windows? Finally, the comment card in the room had already been filled out by a previous occupant and contained in Swedish the same complaints listed above. Does Management care about customers in Sweden? One positive: we liked the heated towel rack in the bathroom
