This is a small budget boutique hotel staff I met with very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a reasonable size. I stayed in a single but it had a private bathroom and toilet. Breakfast was good and it less than £50 per night it was good value for money.

Our room was a mix of 70's and contemporary. Although the bathroom was dated it was still clean and tidy with a new shower. The room was also a bit rough around the corners in some ways but charming with good beds and beddings. They have a very nice breakfast area where they serve a good breakfast with fresh waffles...

The Hotell Pilen is a reasonably good deal in Umea. I was fortunate to have a spacious double room with its own WC, as I'm pretty sure that's not the case for each room. The complementary breakfast is nice with quite a few options. Be aware that it's a 10-15 minute walk to the city centre. Nevertheless, there are a... More

I am right now in the hotel. I came to Umea for a summer-school-conference. The organiser booked this hotel for participants. My first room was 2.5*2.5 m2, with shared bathroom. There was a small windows without any good view. The window's cover didn't work so I couldn't sleep the first night almost at all. Because it never gets dark. The... More

I really loved the "cosy" look on the website and was really excited with the pretty good reviews I thought "we found a hidden gem!" When we got there it was 3pm after traveling for about 24, I thought it was picturesque, but the inside was not at all as I expected. The washroom smelled and the toilet was SO... More

A lovely little quaint hotel near city centre and university. Staff were lovely and definitely made you feel welcome. The only downside was the smell from the drain in the bathroom. That aside this was the perfect hotel. Breakfast was good and free waffles and coffee were offered in the afternoons. Shame they had no rooms available on this last... More

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.
