Reviewed 17 July 2015 via mobile

Family room way too small for family of 6 people. No coffee machine in the room, which is usually a standard, as far as I have seen, for top floor members. Easy to come from E4. Fast, well working wifi + tasty breakfast. Extremely friendly lady in the reception.

Lukas S, Receptionschef at Scandic Umea South, responded to this review

Hello Esa, Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. Our largest rooms can quite easily house four people, but we usually recommend a second room at a discounted price if you are a larger family. I'm sorry if we failed to do so and if you felt cramped in a single room. Thank you for your nice...

Stayed here for two nights on business. Excellent hotel; the room was perfect, really comfortable and had good wifi. Great breakfast. Also, an added bonus: 10 euro per day voucher for the hotel shop as a welcome gift.. nice touch.

This is an interesting city and hotel in an otherwise undistinguished part of Sweden which although beautiful if brutally cold during the winter. I was here for a short business trip over a few days. There are no direct flights from the US so you have to connect through Stockholm which was painful. By the time we arrived it was...

Hello jbreach, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. From your description of the hotel I think that you stayed at our other property in Umeå, Scandic Plaza. Scandic Plaza is located in the city center while Scandic South is a 15-minute walk away. I'm sorry that our restaurant didn't live up...

The hotel is located a distance from the city centre so you need to have a car. The hotel is quite old but redecorated and was very modern. The reseption area is stylish and leeds directly into the restaurant. The breakfast is the standard Scandic breakfast. Not as good as it used to be but good enough. They offered a...

Nice clean but dated hotel. Friendly staff. Must say $20 (Australian)for 1 glass of chardonnay is outrageous. Should have asked for price first before it was poured. Breakfast was ample. Location ok in fine weather nice walk.

Hi, Tank you for your feedback. I'm glad you liked the hotel and I'm also sorry for the warmth at the hotel. We are working on making the ventilation a bit better. The menu is a Scandic menu and quite often people order just a regular salad with nothing more - so this is why we have add on's so...

The location is in an industrial area outside city centre. The area is ugly and the outside of the hotel looks bad. It doesn't feels unsafe or so, but very "off". The inside of the hotel was good and I have nothing to complain on. If you have stayed on a Scandic hotel before: I would say that this is...

Hi, Thank you for your feedback concerning your last stay. I couldn't agree more - the outside is not (by far) as pretty as the inside - I'm glad you liked our newly refurbished hotel and that the brekfast was a positive experience. I hope that we can welcome you back someday! Kind Regards Sara

This is not half the Scandic downtown in Umea. The breakfast is very good and some good people working here. The receptionist, Kristin, on the other hand was beyond stressed.

I was recently in Umeå for the house of metal festival and to catch up with some old friends. I booked the trip kinda late so most hotels were fully booked.

Rooms are small but mostly comfortable. Food is good, both for breakfast and a maim evening meal, and people are friendly. An ok hotel for a short stop. Not really much more to say about it. Distinctly average.
