I stay at the Scandic Uplandia several times per year even though I have other choices. The rooms are in two "classes" the older rooms which are more than adequate (and most seem to have a small refrigerator) and the newer "designer" rooms. Closet space in the new rooms is - well it is a couple of hangers on the wall and and there are no storage drawers. The older rooms have somewhat more storage. Either way they are comfortable.
Breakfast is good with several choices. The breakfast area is usually crowded during the week - it seems the military must have a contract with the hotel because there are always men in military uniforms at breakfast. The hotel also has a bar and dinner service. In addition there is a small snack area for take-away coffee, sandwiches and sweets. Wireless internet is free in the sleeping rooms and there is a computer/printer set up available in the dining/reception area.
The hotel is very well located for the car-less area and all the things you would need. Public transportation is also excellent as you are on a bus line and a 4-minute walk to the SJ train (you can get to Stockolm in an hour).
The best part of the hotel is indeed the staff. I have been coming here for years and many of the front desk staff are the same. Always helpful, they are very friendly and accomodating. (One time last year the hair dryer in the bathroom died - shooting quite some sparks in its death ritual) and I went to the front desk to ask for another one. They delivered one about 10 minutes later and funny, but when I returned to the room the next day I suddenly had several hair dryers in the room!
I won't stay anywhere else.
