One night in Uppsala was all myself and 3 colleagues needed but we were warned that it was a busy week so to book early. I was surprised how expensive everywhere was and settled on this one a) as one of the least expensive and b) it wasn't a "chain" and so seemed a little less bland. It was also in the centre of the city which we didn't know and thought we might get out for a meal. Unfortunately due to late flights I got there at 1.30am and had to be up at 7am so saw nothing! As the hotel reception closes, I had a code to gain entry at the back door. That all worked and I found my way to the 2nd floor room. It was like going back to student days! The room was tiny and the bed was more like a little cot! Absolutely no luxuries but the room and bed was clean and I slept well. The bathroom was also tiny with rather threadbare towels and, again, nothing provided other than soap out of a wall-mounted dispenser. It was fine but it wasn't good value for money and certainly nowhere you would spend more than a night at. Cheap and cheerful is ok sometimes but this wasn't really much of either.
