Nice clean hotel, very close to town center. Personnel very polite, breakfast very good and rooms comfortable and clean. Hotel is just 200 meters from pedestrian street, where (most?) pubs and restaurants are located. Time of the year was not best for visiting Northern town, since summer time would make a huge difference.

Hi there! I don't know if I should say this but Oulu really is not at its best in November. Well, it could be if we had some snow or at least clear sky and minus degrees. On the other hand why worry because snow, minus degrees and eventually summer will be here for sure sooner or later. Thank you... More

Last time I was there I was not happy at all. This time I got upgraded to a nice room, which included a private sauna. Nice room, excellent service. However, there is still room for improvement. The amenities in the bathroom need to be refreshed more often. I used the lotion in the bathroom and it was rancid.. absolutely disgusting.... More

This is a modern, nice and clean hotel in the center of the city. It should be advised, that this area of the city is very lively at nights during weekends. Luckily the rooms are soundproof. The rooms are modern and clean and the buffet breakfast is very good with wide selection of food. The bar is also nice, but... More

Hello! Thank you very much for your feedback and also for choosing Scandic during your trip to Oulu. I agree with you that the center area of Oulu is pretty lively during the late hours on weekends. In case you're a very light sleeper we can pick a room facing our inner yard which is even more quiet. However I'm... More

The personnel was very friendly and we could use the rooms already from early morning. The breakfast and food was tasty. It was like staying in a friends house as everybody took notice of you and greeted you.

Excellent location, within walking distance to the city services. Parking in the same building. Hotel is quite new, so rooms are in good shape with decent prices. Ground floor restaurant serves also good food.

The hotel room is quite typical nordic style: simple, even a bit plain. Unfortunately no tea & coffee set in the room. Good bed and quiet room for a good night's sleep. Broad range of breakfast options. Convenient location close to everything.
