Who we are

Akademihotellet is a cozy hotel owned by Uppsala Akademiförvaltning. The hotel building has a long history from the 1930s and was built by the Uppsala Student Union to provide students with their own housing, which came to be known as “Gubbhyllan”.

In the 1960s, the house was converted into a course yard and since then the business has been transformed into a hotel and conference business, which is the business that Akademihotellet still conducts. With us, the story lives on.


What we offer at Akademihotellet

Akademihotellet offers 42 cozy, charming hotel rooms bright nice conference rooms for up to 50 people. The hotel also has several small cozy seats on the ground floor with a beautiful view of the cathedral.

As the hotel rooms are renovated, Uppsala’s history is highlighted in the room, an opportunity for hotel guests to learn more about Uppsala and the city’s historical profiles. We call them Rooms with history.
