The U&Me, BW Signature Collection is an innovative hotel located in the very center of Umea. Create your own stay by deciding whether you are in a compact or spacious mood. Spice up your stay with affordable add values or luxury experiences in the immediate vicinity of your hotel room. Our 162 rooms are located on floors 6 thru 13 of the newly built Vaven Complex. We offer room sizes from small, medium, large to extra-large. All rooms face towards a panoramic window, ensuring that you will always wake up with a view of the city or the river. Upon arrival you will be greeted by something totally different to a traditional hotel desk. You will meet our continental indoor square within Umea's cultural hub Vaven, including the city library, bakery, cafes, deli, restaurants and a flower shop. An unconventional lobby and multi choice hotel restaurant all rolled into one. The check in and check out is quick and easy at our digital check in counters (similar to ones used in airports). As you enter the indoor square you will find the counters next to the elevators, which after check in, takes you to your room. If you need assistance, staff can always be found, either at the check in counter or just a phone call away using the hotel phone by the check in counter.

    « Relatively easy yet bit confusing check-in, nice stay! »

    Check-in was bit confusing and the web page is lacking some information. Maybe it's the concept of self-service hotel that bothers but otherwise everything was nice. Rooms were nice and modern, and views were great. Glass windows to toilet were really confusing, and whose idea was to place sinks outside the toilet?? Dumb idea, really. I was leaving the room before my sleeping roommate, and trying to leave quietly was impossible as there was no mirror in the toilet - toothbrushing is surprisingly noisy! The lobby /piazza downstairs is very nice, warm recommendations to Duå Deli and lovely speakeasy bar!

    « The views are amazing »

    Stayed for a weekend. The rooms facing the river have an amazing view! Especially in winter! The breakfast was sub-par however, cold and lack of warm options. There is an in house library which offers a nice touch.

    « Fantastic views »

    Modern self-service check in, but easy to do. A clean and compact room which made the most of the views across the river. I asked for a kettle in the room, and it was already there when i checked in. Breakfast was good, and served in the bakery in the atrium. The building also houses the library, womens museum, a couple of restaurants and shops. Location is excellent, near the centre of the city. Our room was quiet. Only negative is the design of the shower screen, which has no seal and the water ends up on the floor.

    « Funky hotel in Umeå »

    Loved this pod hotel. Nice details without being too much. Nice bed. Lovely Bath room. Love to big window. Nice placement of chargers. And a special note about the iron hidden in a clever way. The dimmable lights are nice too.

    « Not quite but almost do-it-yourself! »

    This is a hotel inspired by a visionary but whose team hadn't read all the small print. The check-in is easy with help if you need it (you can also do it on-line) but you have to pay on arrival. Breakfast is included but is rather meagre and self-service. The rooms are fresh with beds situated looking directly out of the window - not sure what this does on the ground floor but on the top floors the views of the sunset are wonderful. There is no telephone in the rooms and the shower is a little bizarre flooding the shower/lavatory room due to a poorly designed glass screen. There is also no minibar (figures since you've already paid). Having said that the rooms are functional and chic. It seems the prices are increasing so not sure how long customers will pay for essentially no service.

    « Modern, "artsy" feeling with self service and boring breakfast »

    The hotel has definetely aimed for a modern and cultural image. The room is different from other business hotels with bed in the middle of the room, sink outside the bathroom and many cool details. The hotel is in a building that also contains restaurants, a library and other things. The reception is a self service desk, if your booking is standard it's no worries but if you arrive late, have troubles or questions you are basically on your own. There is a phone you can use to get assistance but a collegue of mine arrived late and couldn't get in touch with anyone. Your room number is breifly shown on a screen and then e-mailed to you, maybe a problem if you don't have e-mail in your phone. The breakfast was the real low point! For that price I expect a buffé, instead you get something that is just slightly better than an airplane breakfast. Sure you can go for a refill but there wasn't much more than bread, cheese, ham, 2 types youghurt, 2 types cereal, orange juice, boiled eggs, coffe/tea. The location is in the heart of Umeå with shopping, supermarket and restaurants around it. Being a breakfast person I will not book this hotel again.
