Accommodation

Uppsala is a beautiful and much loved town, full of sights and with a rich history. This makes it a prime tourist attraction, especially during summers, resulting in quite a few options to choose from in regards to accommodations. There is a number of hotels and hostels at a variety of prices in central Uppsala, close to the venue, with easy communications and a great opportunity to experience the sights.

Overall, the rule of thumb in Sweden is that accommodation is cheapest when booked online, and common hotel websites like Booking.com and Hotels.com do offer an array of choices, usually with a late date canceling option, free of cost.
Many hotel chains are therefor reluctant to engage in discounts during high season (June-August), but we’ve managed to pull together a few deals with the help of Uppsala Convention Bureau!

Before browsing through your options, please remember:
• Most modern hotels in Sweden are wheelchair accessible in lobbys, restaurants etc, but the bedrooms might not always have all the amenities you’d wish for (like bathroom stools or electric door openers). Check in with the hotel before hand if you want to make sure the room suits your needs and expectations.

• Many Swedish hotels and hostels are moving away from cash usage, and will only take card. Please be prepared for this!

• Take note that VAT is included in all mentioned prices below.

• Please keep in mind that all the hotels/hostels have their own unique cancellation terms. We try to keep this page updated, but you should first and foremost rely on the terms and information in your reservation. We do not take responsibility for any missed cancellations.
