Perks include: 1) 24-hour availability in the breakfast area of coffee/tea; still/sparkling water; fresh fruit; cookies; and a microwave for guest use (also glasses, cups, and utensils); 2) a free self-service laundry, with free laundry detergent (and an iron/ironing board); 3) great views of the domkyrka (Uppsala cathedral); even if your room isn't on that side, there are multiple nice seating areas with a view; 4) perfect location for the university or the city center--just a couple of minutes walking from each.
The rooms are actually fairly large for a European hotel of this type. Bathrooms are small, but not as small as some of the other reviews lead me to believe--I'm a big guy and I didn't find the bathroom uncomfortable at all. Single beds. Plenty of lighting. Desk. Large TV. Security safe.
Drawbacks: Breakfast only occasionally includes the good stuff--salmon and brief (2 out of the 8 days I stayed); workout room is just an exercise bike and a few weights in the dungeon.
