We booked this hotel because literally every other hotel in Umeå was occupied. We didn't expect much but were really pleasantly surprised! The room was nice and spacious, the staff friendly, the grounds lovely and the breakfast tasty. Apparently they offer complimentary waffles in the afternoon but unfortunately we weren't able to try them this time around. Considering the affordable... More

This hotel had gotten 5+ if some not so nice woman had been rude to one of the female personals. I believe that the not so nice woman is either a boss or have an ownership in the hotel. The was no yoghurt which the personals hadn't predicted. Very unprofessional of the not so nice woman.

I stayed here for one night before heading to Vindeln. The grounds are lovely and the room was adequate. The self-check in was super efficient and the breakfast was good. The only downside was the water was not super hot and I love a hot shower when travelling! The Hotell benefits from being more of a 'house' rather than a... More

Stayed at the Pilen while visiting Umea for 5 days. Not town centre but easy 10 min walk into town. What seriously impressed me were the friendly and helpful staff. Room was OK but for the price it was great value. Breakfast and WiFi is included and weekend stays are even cheaper! I would stay there again.

Umea is a very nice town and there are several hotels in the area. The Hotell Pilen is situated in a fairly quiet area, away from the main town square by about a 10-15 minute walk. The hotel was quite clean, the staff were very nice and helpful, showers were good (especially for Scandinavia). WiFi was pretty fast and very... More

Very nice rooms, clean and complete, the hotel has been refurbished since I last stayed in 2002, which is just as well because it wasn't up to much back then! Breakfast was also fine, typical reasonably well assorted buffet. Please note, not all rooms have en-suite facilities which I found a bit suprising for a hotel in this price category.... More

Very nice hotel with charmingly decorated rooms and only a short walking distance from the center of Umeå. Arrived during the weekend when the hotel was unmanned which meant that we had to check in ourselfs. But since this is handled very smoothly (instructions are given at booking and more detailed information is then available in the room), we still... More

Very nice and comfy hotel with loads of personality. The room was nicely decorated and had a very cosy feel to it. Felt a bit like home really. The staff must have a very good eye for details since they have accomplished to create such a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast selection is not the widest I have seen but it's... More

Hotel Pilen is in an excellent location and has a very good breakfast (I enjoyed it although the previous reviewer did not). But I didn’t think much of the rooms. The first room they put me in had no closet - just a kind of open cubby with a metal bar about 8 inches long. No where to hang more... More
