“Good but expensive”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

It is a nice hotel for business reasons. Clean but small rooms. Free wifi, nice Service staff. I would go there for business reasons again, but not for private. Good breakfast. Fast in the city. Parking costs 100 Kronars

Stayed here for 5 nights in July 2012. The hotel is right in the town centre and the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel provides a breakfast buffet in the morning which provides a nice selection of hot and cold food. The rooms and corridors are like something which has been constructed by Ikea, it is the only place I've ever seen where doors open into the corridor instead of into the room!. From some of the other photographs you get a really good impression of what the hotel corridors and rooms are like. It is the equivalent of a 3 star in the UK, and if you are looking for wifi, the hotel wifi is dreadful. A tip is to turn right when you go out of the hotel and go to the town McDonalds which has great free wifi, only 5 minutes away. The rooms are quite modern but for some reason have a large window between the bathroom and bedroom so you have little or no privacy in the bathroom. Overall, not a bad stay, but would I stay here again? Yes, I probably would due to a lack of quality accommodation in Umea as opposed to being impressed by the hotel.

We stayed only for a night (1st of August), as it was just a stop in our journey to the north. We parked our car in the hotels garage. The garage is located in the back of the hotel (on Operaplan by Vasagatan). Notice that in order to be able to open the garage door you have to get a key from the hotels reception. The garage is a bit crowded and one should pay attention to park the car on a place that it's marked with hotels logo. There is no direct connection between the garage and the hotel, and you have to carry your luggage approximately 150 meters around the building. The size of the room is average. The fact that the sink is in the bedroom gives the room more… room, though for me it still seem a little bit strange. The good thing is that in the morning it’s easy to do two things in the same time: brushing your teeth and watching the news on the TV. The Wi-Fi signal was poor and after a few attempts I ended up using the 3G mobile connection on my phone. The beds were good and the room was pretty quiet even if it faced the street. The staff was really nice and helpful. The breakfast was great, they have a lot you can choose from and can satisfy all tastes.

Very nice and clean rooms with a designer's touch. Having the washing basin separate from toilet and shower is actually a plus because two people can do "their thing" without getting into each other's hair. Reception staff was friendly and helpful (we got advice on where to dine, and how to deal with the slightly weird parking rules in the street outside the hotel), and everybody spoke English exceptionally well (we thought, even for Sweden). The breakfast buffet was large and varied, the only thing I missed (hint to the manager :-) in case he/she is reading this) was a coffee machine to make *real* coffee (espresso or latte) instead of filtered coffee. Overall the Aveny was a pleasant surprise and very good value for money.

Stayed at this hotel four nights in February 2012. The staff were both friendly and helpful and the hotel has a prime location in the city. But the interior of the room is to say the least weird. Who has got the idea to have the wash basin in the hall, outside the bathroom? - embarrassing and ill.

We, a family of three stayed one night at Hotel Aveny in July and we loved it. It is located in the centre of Umeå.
The room was a bit small but we could easily fit an extra bed. It was clean and the design was modern and fresh. We also liked the fact that there were two sets of dumbells and a workout DVD in the room. Bed was comfortable and the small bathroom was clean.
The breakfast was set up really nicely and there was plenty to choose from. I appreciated the fact that I could order in oatmeal. Everything was fresh but then again we tend to eat breakfast as soon as possible in the morning.
One great thing about this hotel is that you get to work out at Formtoppen, a well equipped gym located in the same building. For instance there are at least 5 treadmills (with small tv-screens),
If you want to say something negative about this hotel then that would be that the wi-fi is really slow. Also, the TV was broken in our room.
All in all we would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Kära gäst. Tack för trevlig feedback och information. Utan information är der väldigt svårt att göra saker bättre. När det kommer till vår WiFi så är vi fullständigt medvetna om att den ej är bra. Men den är under konstruktion och uppdatering. Givetvis skall vi ha ett modernt WiFi. Hjärtligt välkommen tillbaka. Mvh Mattias Lindberg

The attempt to give this hotel an uber-modern atmosphere (don't be fooled by the pictures on the website) somehow got out of focus. It felt like staying in a funky student room instead, with a sink in the bedroom and a cramped shower/toiler area that floods when talking a shower. That being said: beds are good, breakfast is OK, service is average. As noted by others below, the wifi connection is unreliable (it simply dropped for two days). Although the price (especially in Sweden) does not feel wrong for what you get, you do not get what you expect from the website. I would not return here.
