    « Best service you can get in Umeå »

    This is a nice but simple hotel. They offer to pick you up at the airport (very close) and they will give you a ride to down town Umeå and pick you up when you are done. I used this service to got my meetings and when I wanted to get back I just called the reception and they send a driver over. It is walking distance to central Umeå on a nice day, they also have bicycles that you can lend. Monday to Thursday there is also a very nice evening buffé, check with the hotel for summer months this might not be included or available. Lots of parking lots. God value for money when traveling for business and you are not looking for nightlife.

    « Very basic, very expensive - a desaster. »

    The Best Western Hotel Botnia was my choice in September 2015 during a customer visit in Umeå. I had to pay the record all time high price of 1767 SEK, that equals 209 USD per night. What a rip-off! For that amount of money you can stay in Manhattan for that amount of money... But here in Umeå you get a very, very basic room. Unfortunatelly no upgrade was provided, eventhough I am Best Western Platinum Elite member. Small and uncomfortable bed, cheapes toiletries from China, budget toilet paper. There was not even a hotel safe provided. No heating provided in the bathroom either. Unfortunatelly my room was located in a dead spot without WIFI coverage. Why cant they do a WIFI survey to prevent those kind of things for their guests? The breakfast was a joke. They provided 2 different kind of cheese and only very dry and aged bread. One jam was provided, thats it. I really regret to have stayed here. What a desaster.

    « relaxing next to the river »

    Stayed one night on a stopover. The room was spotless and comfortable, the breakfast extremely tasty, and service with a smile from the staff. The best bit for me about the hotel was its location next to the river. From the window seat in the restaurant you can see people kayaking past, and the outdoor area has hot tubs and activities for guests to do. I agree with others that it's not cheap, but Umea is a great city with lots to see.

    « Excellent Hotel with nice features »

    Very nicely located by the river of Umea and featured with a river sauna. An excellent breakfast buffet, very typical Swedish. Very nice and helpful staff in the entire hotel, we arrived late and departed very early.

    « Nice! Comfortable!! Great Service! »

    After some very long days of difficult flying was forced to stop in Umea. Made this reservation based on TripAdvisor reviews--and was exactly as reviewed! Very nice young man behind the desk--super helpful! Room very extra clean, comfortable, very cozy and got a great night sleep as it rained heavily outside. The buffet dinner was as reviewed--okay. Breakfast was good and plentiful. If you are traveling and need a good, clean, comfortable hotel nearby, this is the place!!

    « Nice friendly hotel - but a bit pricy »

    A good hotel for this area, with excellent staff attention and service. Rooms were good, buffet dinner was OK, and included in the room rate, so I would say very acceptable and pretty tasty, as was the breakfast.
