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...

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...

Just a comfortable welcoming place. Rooms are good size. 321 has a street and river view. The staff is helpful and warm. Breakfast from 0700 to 1000 is plentiful with Swedish foods. Try the bar in the evening. It drips with ambiance. It is a 3 block walk to the train station.

We booked two rooms - one with a single bed and the other room with two single beds for a wedding. My parents stayed with my toddler girl and I stayed in the single room. The rooms were small, but charming and lovely decorated. Bathrooms newly remodeled. The staff was very friendly and ensured that we had one room ready...
