A old hotel far (but sttill walking distance) from the central part of town. A low, looong, building. Free internet access, good breakfast. OK if you are just going to sleep and do not need to hang around in the hotel

hotel close to the airport but unforntunately not close to UMEA downtown so during winter time it's necesasry always to take the car. The room and bathroom are clean but not so modern. There is also a good restaurant. This hotel is ok for businness tip.

This hotel was marketed as one of the extra kid friendly Scandic hotels, but that proved to not be the case at all. Unlike the majority of the Scandic hotels the kids dis not receive a gift if not specifically asked for. Kids room was kids corner 1 square meter and not for anyone above the age of 2. No toys in the pool. Really I cant figure out what made Scandic choose this hotel as extra kid friendly. It was among the least kid friendly Scandic hotels I have visited. Ok as a hotel though. Location only acceptable if you come by car.

Decent business hotel, located near the airport but not convenient to the city. Large, sprawling hotel. Not very exciting.

We werent expecting to stop here so we were very pleased at getting a room. The room was very nice and the window large. The pool is also quite big and open until 11, and free of charge! The breakfast is good. Overall I recommend this hotel and I will know where to go if Im ever back in Umea!

This is truly a hidden gem that provides both excellent guest services and a cozy setting. When I initially booked the room, it was with slight disappointment I found out that Scandic South was situated outside the city centre of Umea. However, for the very reasonable rate we received I've been extremely impressed with the service and room quality. They have a superb restaurant downstairs catering for every imaginable cuisine, and they even offer on request meals (courtesy of a nearby kitchen). The rooms are spacious, free wireless internet and premium TV channels and the hotel has a full-size swimming pool that all guests can use free of charge. The staff is really helpful and friendly, the only downside is that the concierge sometime is very busy, so dinner/theater reservations need to be done with some notice.

Overall superb hotel, will definitely return!
