Nice lobby. Also good terrace bar for eating & drinking. Good location.
Is this really 4 star hotel? Where was air condition or minibar? Such an old and small tv in the room. There was bad smell in the bathroom.
Good location close to the centre of Uppsala. Room basic, but clean and comfortable. (Miniature bathroom, though.) Excellent buffet breakfast, staff very friendly and helpful.
Frukost var bra
The hotel needed a refit and cleaniness was not great tv channel choice was awful
This was the only hotel with a reasonable price when I did the booking. “Reasonable” was anyway expensive for my standards but the rest of hotels were much worse. The hotel is fine, nothing special but more than enough. The single room had small toilet & shower, table for working, tv and even coffee making facilities. It is distant about 15 min to the central train station, bus available.
Very nice room, great service and friendliness from staff. Location was very central to nice restaurants and river in Uppsala. Everything we needed was in the room. Breakfast selection was also ample. Highly recommended
Unfortunately the spa was fully booked 2 days in advance.
The staff takes very goodcare of you. Excellent breakfast.calm and quiet
When I was looking for a hotel for the confence I attended at Uppsala U., I wanted a hotel that was reasonably priced and in walking distance of Uppsala Central and of Norrlands Nation. First Hotel Linne met those criteria.
I booked my hotelroom at First Hotel Linne with my Master Card. Then when I checked in on Wednesday evening, there was some problem with the credit card processing machine. This next morning on Thursday, this problem had not been resolved. So I paid the total amount for my hotel stay by cash on Thursday afternoon. When I checked out on Friday morning, I was asked to pay again. When I showed my receipt from Thursday, I was told that the receipt had to be verified by the manager. I did not leave First Hotel Linne feeling like a valued customer and will share this story of my experiences with my friends and business associates.
The staff were freindly and helpful on all occasions and the cleanliness and feel of the hotel was very good
Nothing to advise re this question.
Interesting older hotel with a good location and good service plus good value.
There are no unexpected that we experienced
The hotel is OK if you are not very demanding. I would give this place 4- star rating. In general Uppsala is an old city where most of the buildings are built in the 70ties, 80ties. This hotel is also quite old but well kept. I was very suprised that rooms still have the old style old wooden windows. The location is very good, breakfast was also good, the bathroom is very small. Internet available, you just have to ask for the code every 24 hours.
Rooms were comfortable with tea & coffe making facilites. Also spare pillows & blankets in cupboard, hairdryer & 2 armchairs
First day room was not attended too & we returned to find that beds not made. Also wet towels were not picked up.
Reception staff v helpful. Comfortable to have separate sitting room but it was not possible to know this until seen. Website should indicate more clearly the facilities of each room. Breakfast was good. Good that the hotel did not feel like part of a chain,
Frendly personal in Reception
To old and bad exterior, badroom was old and the service of the room was bad.
The bed was confortable. The hotel was correct but totally without charm.
The hotel was correct but totally without charm. It felt slightly old and tired. I payed a reduced price, it was worth it. It would not have been worth the list price. You can find many better hotels than this for the same price.
Location, free wifi, breakfast buffet is good
Very, very small old bathroom
