We visited for the first time and had the suite as it was the same price for the day. The suite was very nice and had loads of room. Only little minus was the cleaning in some parts. Other than that having a sauna and jacuzzi was nice and made the stay special.

Hotel itself was modern and situated in close to the center. Staff was friendly and even let us check in early as the room was ready.

Breakfast was good and had a lot of varities. One thing that was missing (as someone had mentioned), was the allergenics (peanuts etc) from the foods.

Room Tip: If available, take the suite for the same price.

I've stayed here on several occasions and I find it's the best value for money in Umeå. The layout of the rooms is a bit strange as the wash basin is in the hall as you enter the room but it does give the room a cool feel. The beds are very comfortable and the tv is big and has pretty decent channel selection. The hotel is connected to a public gym which is free for hotel guests to use. Much, much better than the normal tiny gyms you see in most hotels.
The service is very friendly and the bar menu in the hotels restaurant is good plus you get a 50 seek discount as a guest. At breakfast I only had yoghurt and musli so I can't comment although there seems to be a decent selection.

My one complaint would be the cleaning. All though the room was clean I found a sock and a soda can under the bed which indicates that the cleaning staff don't really pay attention to details. The shower head also needed a good clean as it was covered in lime scale.

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and always receive great friendly service. The hotel is vibrant and modern with a great restaurant too. For those interested, there is also a decent gym which isn't common in Umea. Friendly but still personal service.

I spent one night at this hotel with my fiancé. It was clean, the staff was very friendly and pretty much what we expected after reading the reviews here. I would come back but there are a few things I would like to see improved. For instance, I can't for my life figure out why the bathroom door is transparent and not close all the way up. It looks cool but I'm happy I was sharing a room with my fiancé and not a colleague or someone I didn't know very well. Another tiny thing I noticed was that some one the shampoo and shower gel bottles had been opened and about halfway used. Probably the cleaning crew who messed that up.

Another improvement I would suggest is to put little signs next to the breakfast food listing common allergens (gluten, milk protein, peanuts etc). That would have improved my fiancé's breakfast experience quite a lot. Now we had to ask the staff about every single item we didn't know for sure didn't contain milk or any derivative thereof. The staff did always help us with a smile when we requested dairy free options though.

We booked a romantic weekend at this hotel as it was marketed on their homepage. The room was clean and we got a bottle of champagne and robes for an extra cost of 30 euros. But the room was anything but romantic, and the view we had from our junior suite window was over a parking lot. For the price the charge I had hoped for something far greater.

BUT! The breakfast was amazing!!

Room Tip: Unnecessary to pay for junior suite. A standard room is just as good.

Very nice and clean hotel. The best hotel breakfast I have had for many years, good bread, fresh fruit, lots of different juices and tasty and local food.
Room design is a bit different with the washbowl in the entry hall of the room.
Good and soft beds, nothing to complain about.
And the price was decent, much lower than the other hotels in Umeå with similar standard.
Good location just by the bus station. And, yes, dumbbells for your personal training in the room...

In the middle of June, Aveny Hotel is a good start for a Nordic experience. Little but well designed (IKEA like), clean rooms with very comfortable beds made me feel good and helped me get along with the midnight sun. Breakfast was excellent, both delicious and healthy. The Hotel bar is rather expensive and closes very early but they make very good cocktails. If you are into sports then the free weight, the CD and the Gym will surely please you. As for me, I'd rather go hiking.
The hotel is located in the center of the city, close to all "touristic attractions". I think the bets way to visit the neighborhoods is by renting a bicycle. The personnel was very helpful by letting me safely "park" my rented bicycle in luggage room.
