Hotell Fyrislund
Ranked #17 of 17 Hotels in Uppsala
Reviewed 13 October 2013

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.

I just quickly visited in this hotel during my business trip in the town. Room was very small single room where was not much space to put your luggages on the floor. I had to jump over my bag. Free WiFi was positive but price vs. value for the money didn´t met in my ranking. They have just started major renovation outside of the building which caused some noise early in the morning. That was apologiesed by staff when I checked in. Free outdoor parking. Breakfast included in the price and it was normal scandinavian style full breakfast. If you need to stay just over night without any need to go to the city, this would be your hotel.

The hotel is on the edge of town. It took me about 40 minutes to walk there from Uppsala Central station. The check in staff were friendly and spoke good English (helpful as my Swedish vocabulary runs to about 10 words). Internet access was included. I had a single room which was rather small (5m x 2.25m including the en-suite shower room). There was a narrow desk, and space for a single bed across the width of the room. I was only there for a night, so it didn't matter. There was a rather odd room in the middle of the floor. It had some rather uncomfortable-looking sofas and a TV in a room which had no windows, but was the way between some of the rooms and the lift and stairs. The breakfast buffet was good - the hot food was hot.

I checked out in the morning, and then had finished my meeting by lunchtime. I went back and sat in the lobby, using their internet access.

My trip to Uppsala was for a conference in town near the central station. Although this hotel is not in the town center, it is located on a bus line that dropped me off less than a block from the conference center. Together with the reasonable price (as most hotels were much higher rates than usual due to the presence of the conference) this fact prompted me to choose this hotel.

Positive features about this hotel include the very pleasant staff, the on-site restaurant which served a very nice buffet breakfast of hot and cold foods (included in the room price) as well and lunch and dinner and bar afterwards, and overall cleanliness. Wifi is free (you get a code from reception) and there's also a PC with web connection available for common use in the lobby. I'd expected free laundry facilities, but in fact you have to hand over your laundry to be done by the hotel staff for a fee, so I didn't use it. There is an ironing room. Although small, the beds are comfortable and the linens soft. Plenty of hot water for showers.

Negatives include the small room size (even though mine was a double with two twin beds, I'd have been hard-pressed to share it with anybody, and I'm not a particularly big person myself; this room was small relative to Japanese budget hotel rooms, frankly) and awkward bathroom that featured a very small sink and a shower with a motion-activated feature: do a little dance to turn it on, and then stay very still if you'd rather it stay off for any reason. No phones in the rooms, so if you need something from the front desk you have to go downstairs and fetch it in person.

In spite of the various negatives I describe, my stay at this hotel was pleasant, and I gather from talking to colleagues at the conference that my experience was the norm, and that I could have spent a great deal more money for a similarly tiny and possibly not nearly so nice room. So, all in all it worked out.

Not close to city-center and unpleasant showers, but a great reception-staff, good beds, restaurant for frukost/lunch/dinner, good access to public transport, free wi-fi!
