    Hotell GF

    Det var roligt att stanna där. Jag var nöjd med mottagen och fick tillräcklig information om allting. Städningen var perfekt i rummet, köket, toaletterna och dusch. Frukosten var också jättebra och damen som serverade den var mycket vänlig och hygglig. Hon hjälpte alla som skulle sätta sig på restaurangen. Jag tror att priset på hotellet var det enda som ganska var högt.

  • 4.0.Fair

    On the booking page, they didn't marked as shared bathrooms in the rest of the rooms except for single room. I would not have chosen this hotel if I knew that all of the rooms in this hotel did not have a private toilet. I sent a message through the hotel's webpage to talk about this, but I didn't get an answer. The room is very small. Staffs were friendly.

    Amazing host running the place, and such a quirky place, but just be aware that it is after all an old prison, so quite basic and noisy. Breakfast included was fantastic!

    En annorlunda upplevelse.

    Trevligt att träffa en norrköpingsbo med vissa gemensamma beröringspunkter.

    Charmigaste hotellet jag sovit på

    Det här hotellet var supercharmigt och väldigt fint renoverat. Härliga stora plankgolv, roligt med de små cellerna och de autentiska celldörrarna. Värden var väldigt serviceminded, frukosten bra och toaletterna var alla nära cellerna. Inga problem alls med det. Om jag kommer till Umeå igen är detta hotell det självklara valet!

    Prisvärt nära centrum

    Ett fantastiskt välkomnande och en familjär känsla under hela vistelsen. Mycket historia också i huset med ett intressant museum/utställning. Bra med parkering och nära till Umeå centrum. Kan verkligen rekommendera detta boende.
