First Hotel Dragonen is a family-run hotel in central Umeå, a five-minute walk from the Central Station and the pedestrian street with great shopping. With 93 rooms and four conference rooms – one at 240 m² that fits up to 250 people – the hotel is a great choice for conferences, events, romantic breaks and active getaways. Within walking distance, you’ll find Norrland’s Opera, Guitars – the museum and Umeå river. During winter, you can go ice-skating, dogsledding, or cross-country skiing.
Enjoy traditional Swedish food with a local touch at Harriets, our hotel restaurant. Relax in our lounge with a hot or cold beverage, or unwind after a busy day in our relaxation area with a sauna and – if you dare – try the “ice bucket”.
Dinner is included every day for all our staying guests.
