The Scandic Plaza is located in the central city. We have often stayed in Scandic Hotels and we are always very pleased with the value and quality of their product, this one was no exception.
Our room was on the eighth floor and offered a wonderful view over the city. The room was spacious, well furnished and immaculately clean.
The desk area offered plenty of electrical outlets for our phones, computers, chargers etc. It's always frustrating to stay in a hotel where there is one outlet which is difficult to reach, usually located under the desk!
Our request for extra pillows and another duvet were honored quickly and we found the bed to be very comfortable.
The breakfast buffet was complete, even for vegans like me. I enjoyed warm oatmeal and several milk alternatives as well as fresh fruits etc. The staff was always helpful and pleasant!
The hotel was very quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed our stay!

After we found our dorms, we went to the supermarket (which was right next door to the dorms - how great!) to buy food to make for dinner. All of the food was in Swedish so we were going by what the food looked like to decide what it was. I wanted to buy turkey lunch meat but I ...
... all in Swedish and getting our laundry going, a girl shows up who already had her clothes in the other washers. It turns out that you need to reserve a time to do laundry. Neither of us had any idea.
While our laundry was going, we decided to check out the other building that I should have been able to get in to, but hadn't tried. The fob on my key got us in to the building and the laundry area on the first floor and it's super nice!! It's ...
... in umea at about 5pm and settled into the hotel. In umea this weekend there is a Swedish karting competition and an athletic tournament so everywhere was busy. Sat outside having a beer around 10 pm and it started thundering and raining and boy did it rain. Funny thing happened in the bar the girl behind the bar came up to me and said I love your accent you talk so British ....... She thought it was great when I replied when she gave me my change ...
It is difficult to put into words the amazing feeling of being in the same place where my great grandparents, great-great grandparents and all my ancestors came from. It feels very familiar to me as it is similar to Minnesota in many ways. Everything is very beautiful.
Last night my cousins Carina and Pernilla came to visit. It was like I had known them ...
