“Overpriced motel...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

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.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2009

Very close to the airport which is why I stayed the night. Rooms perfectly OK and nice position next to the river but not really near anything else, if you want to be near the centre of Umea the Scandic is a better bet.

Buffet dinner was limited for choice but was OK, however it closed at 20.00, breakfast also fine, however the meals are in what seems to double up as reception and a TV room hence why it has a motel feel about it.
