We hadn’t actually heard of Profil hotels before now, but they’re a Swedish company with 12 hotels in 10 locations (nine in Sweden, plus Copenhagen). Our friend stayed at the Hotel Aveny in Umeå (this year's European Capital of Culture), but all their hotels carry the in-room dumbbells, as well as a workout DVD, which may or may not be the one here. Of course, you can always follow your trusty HotelChatter in-room workout, too.
Rooms at the Aveny start at 1179SEK ($178).
