We stayed at this hotel in August 2015 and had a lovely experience, even thought the room was incredibly small. So, when we wanted to return to Uppsala, we wanted to splurge and get a Junior Suite with a balcony. Unfortunately, the french doors to the balcony were boarded up from the outside, as they were doing renovations. The lady...

I stayed in this Hotel for about 9 days in the first week of February. The room was small, but the hotel is conveniently located near the center of city. Staff were very professional. Overall, it was a great stay. i was in the third floor and my view (directly looking at the church) from room was awesome, especially when...

I have been coming to Uppsala for about 20 years (I studies abroad there) and would never stay anywhere else. The location is amazing and the views are to die for. The staff is warm and engaging and always remembers me. I hate large chain hotels, and Grand Hotel Hornan is the perfect boutique hotel.

Charming, old fashioned but small hotell. Like the more famous "grand" or "stadshotell", but considerably smaller. Small rooms, noisy because of old doors with bad fitting in the door-frame. Ideally situated, only meters from the Fyris river, right in the center of Uppsala.

Hotel is located by the Fyris rivers and is footsteps away from the Royal Castle and the Uppsala Cathedral. Also very close to shopping for those interested. Parking is limited to 5 cars (in the back of the hotel; need to reserve space ahead of time I believe so that you get parking). Heated bathroom floor nice.

Stayed at this hotel for one night in february. Came with a car so was a little worried about getting a space for the car. No problem, nice and efficient service. Rooms are very clean, bathroom newly refurbished, great bed. Breakfast was plentiful. A bit on the expensive side as hotel goes, but ok for this many stars.

I enjoyed my stay at the Hornan Hotel recently in Uppsala, even though it was just for one night. Just a short walk from the Central Rail station, right next to the downtown shopping streets and pleasantly located next to the river, very charming. The service was very friendly and efficient upon check-in, even did the check-out at the same...

This is a very friendly, nice, clean and cosy rooms in downtown Uppsala, less than 10 minutes walking from the train- and bus station. Friendly personnel who work to make you feel comfortable. A very good breakfast. Elevator. Everything worked well.

We loved this hotel. Its ideal location, riverside views, lovely rooms and welcoming wonderful staff. We stayed here twice in the dark and cold of Jan Feb. We were lucky enough to get a beautiful corner room, a wonderful end to a great Lapland trip. The candles on the breakfast tables looking out to the snowy street is a memory...
