The place apparently tries to cut own expenses: a fellow in the reception, who checked me in, could barely speak Swedish and next morning the check-out was done by a kitchen girl :-) Both of them were helpful and friendly though.
The breakfast was a huge disappointment: very basic, without hot dishes (only cooked eggs) and I could almost see through orange juice. I initially intended to make a “sandwich to go”, but gave up…
The rooms are clean and tidy, beds are comfortable, but the bath is simple. Unwillingly I took a “contrast shower”, because the water temperature was jumping up and down. I guess it was an extra service. The curtains in the room could be thicker; it is too much light during summer nights. I couldn’t sleep well.
In summary: the place is OK to stay at, but do not expect much. I find it terribly overpriced compared to the value. If you have a chance – go for Scandic Umeå Syd.
