    Really good room and cleaned, like the Arrivals Hall for some cozy and nice relaxation with good beer and wine in the bar.

    Whilst in the sauna, I was surprised to discover that the hotel's mixed gender sauna is of the nude variety! Understandably, the very naked lady joining me raised a brow as she noticed me sitting there in my bathing suit. That combined with the hot wooden seat, both sets of my cheeks certainly blushed. The gents kept their towels on, I suppose out of respect for the non-local. It was my first trip to Sweden and I later learned that naked sauna is actually very normal over there. The hotel was clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was strong and the breakfast was plentiful. The room has a kettle and a selection of tea and coffee, which we made great use of. There is also a gym but unfortunately we didn't have time to check it out. We travelled light so it was extremely convenient that the hotel provides a same-day laundry service.

    Nice hotel and friendly staff

    The room was exactly what we ordered, the staff was friendly and the stay was good overall. The only thing to have any negative opinion on was the breakfast. The bread was rather stale and some of the condiments were all out without possibility to refill.

    Pleasant & convenient overnight stay in Umea

    I was here for a quick overnight stay and this was a great option - clean & comfortable, close to the train & bus stations, dinner included (Mon to Fri) and with very pleasant staff. I’d say the room was relatively minimalist but it wasn’t lacking anything for my purposes.

    Good stay for a single traveler

    Good hotel that’s fairly priced. Rooms are a bit small, but that may be the case in all local hotels.
