I was alone on a 10 day driving tour of Sweden and just needed somewhere cheap, clean and basic for one night. This hotel did the job.
It is on the outskirts of Uppsala, in a commercial area, so a car is necessary. Driving in to the city centre is not difficult and takes about 10 minutes.
I had a single room - it had a single bed and was small. Clean. Ensuite OK, but the shower did make most of the bathroom floor wet.
I was at the front of the building. View of a huge carpark (needless to say parking was no problem), dual carriageway and several commercial premises.
Dinner was included. I had a salad - it was substantial and fresh. Cooked meals are heated in a microwave - they looked less inviting. Breakfast was fine.
It took me a while to find the hotel. It shares the ground floor of the building it occupies with a Subway outlet and its signs are overwhelmed by the Subway advertising. Having said that, the building itself was really obvious - once I realised that's where the hotel was.
If you are the sort of person who can put up with a view of a car park on the outskirts of town for one night in order to have reasonably priced accommodation in expensive Sweden, this might be for you.
If you are a honeymoon couple, you might just want to shop around a bit more.
