Refurbished and central hotel
First Hotel Dragonen is a modern hotel in central Umeå that welcomes you to a world of personal service. Recently, the hotel rooms, suites and corridors underwent total refurbishment.
With its central location, First Hotel Dragonen offers excellent opportunities to discover Umeå and its attractions. The hotel is located only a five-minute walk from Umeå Central Station, a comfortable distance for those travelling by train or bus.
Guests arriving by car enjoy access to a public parking garage in the same building as the hotel. The easiest way is to first stop outside the hotel, to unload your bags and purchase a parking permit (you must give us the vehicle registration number). Then park you car in the parking garage.

Umeå is northern Sweden's largest city, situated by the Ume River approximately 15km from the coast. The city was founded in 1622. After a great fire that devastated large parts of the city in 1888, wider streets were built, and thousands of fire-resistant birch trees were planted. They are the reason that Umeå is today called Birch City – Björkarnas stad in Swedish.
The city is the seat of Umeå Municipality and the capital of the county of Västerbotten. Among the major employers in the town are IT companies, research-based biotechnology industries and the forestry and manufacturing industries. The University Hospital in Umeå is the largest hospital north of Uppsala and admits patients from all over northern Sweden.
