“Central Location at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Second Scandic hotel of our motoring vacation in Northern Sweden. This hotel is located in the centre of Umeå and easily reached from the main E4 highway. Very pleasant room, though without the views available on the uppermost floors (and at a very good price for Sweden). On our arrival the receptionist seemed not so interested in helping us. Overnight parking is available in a public indoor car-park across the street (for SEK110).

the Sandic Plaza is a modern hotel centrally located close to the river and next to a shopping area in the centre of the city. The rooms are clean and reasonably spacious for the region and restaurant had a great breakfast bar. Internet was decent and everybody was pretty helpful. Seems to be the place to stay in this area. There is no pool and the Gym is okay.

Room Tip: make sure you get to the breakfast buffet in good time as they clean it away very quickly ... feels...

Last four times we visited Umeå, Scandic Plaza has been our Stay.
Nice staff, always smiling. The best of it all is the view and comfortable beds. Affordable price in the middle of Umeå.

Room Tip: Choose a room With view south.

I have stayed here a couple of times and keep coming back since it is the best offering in Umeå. It is your typical Scandic experience which means that the rooms are clean and designed in a no frills style. The restaurant on the bottom floor offers a good breakfast and the dinner service is okay, but nothing special really. The location is very central, then again Umeå isn't a big city...

Good breakfast bar, easily accessible from the airport, nice rooms, fast Internet, right across tons of restaurant and shopping. The gym was nice and 24x7 certainly makes it feel good.

The food variety is pretty limited though for dinner and there is no room service so you've to pick up yourself. This could be a factor if you are staying with family.

The shower was little weird as the door could be adjusted but the water splashed out. Would probably stay here again during next trip.

This is quite a normal, not that exciting hotel in the Scandic chain. Centrally located, average restaurant, good breakfast with a lot of options and served until 1 pm on w-ends.
The rooms have lovely views if you have a room towards the "Umeälven" but they are quite boring with no extras. The cleaning could really have been better as it looked like that the only action been taken was changing of towels and linen?... and the towels could have been larger and thicker. Long wait to check in/out but nice staff in the reception but they could have been a bit happier at breakfast.

This hotel is really your average boring Scandic establishment with no extra frills. The room felt like it was decorated 15-20 years ago and needed renewal. The towels might have been the thinnest I have ever experienced and the breakfast had quite a small location for being a Nordic hotel.
Unfortunately I did not have the time to visit the spa on the top floor or the new gym.
