    Estadia confortável e calorosa

    Incrível! Muitos hotéis deveriam de aprender com este. A recepção foi maravilhosa o que prova que oandemia não é sinônimo de mal atendimento. Na recepção fomos atendidos bem, informados dos principais pontos. O quarto era maravilhoso, confortável e espaçoso. Super indico

    Bo här! Bästa stället i Umeå!

    Incheckning var super smidigt. Fick ett sms med instruktioner. Hotellet var JÄTTE rent. Rummet var jätte fin och rent. Inte lyhört. Sov som en stock. Finns många toaletter och duschar (rena). Bra ställning med galgar på rummet för att hänga kläder. Personalen var super trevliga. Hotellet är rätt mysigt för att vara ett fängelse. De har också ett litet museem. Frukosten var bra med mycket att välja mellan och personen som jobbade där var väldigt mån om oss. Bra med parkering i deras innergård med motorvärmare. Tack för en trevlig vistelse och skulle definitivt bo här igen.

    Besöker denna hotell för andra gången och precis som tidigare allting funkade kanon! Jag hade en bit å köra till hotellet, men personalen löste allting på ett smidig sätt, så man fick komma in till hotellet, fast det var sent på kvällen.
