“Basic hotel near nature and the sea”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

We were visiting friends and this was the closest hotel. It turned out to be nice hotel by the sea and the airport. The room with four beds was really big compared to the other hotel rooms we have seen.The decoration had some 80's-feel but everything looked clean and comfortable. The brakfast was nice, kids loved escpecially the pancakes you could do yourself.

Lovely little hotel with decent food, good proximity to Oulu Airport and very well placed to visit various birding sites, in particular the various owl boxes that are dotted around the forests. There is a short walk to the sea where a large variety of different sea birds and ducks can be seen.

This really is a no-frill hotel, located between Oulu airport and city. Rooms are basic: two single beds, bathroom, small TV and desk.

The choose is excellent if you are doing business with the nearby companies (in Kempele, Oulunsalo) -- several semi-large companies are within walking distance.

If you are planning to travel to Oulu airport early then do not bother -- this hotel saves you max 10 minutes compared to hotel in city. Traveling from Oulu city to airport is usually easy and quick.

Good things about the hotel
+ very quiet rooms, no main roads nearby, no traffic, no night-clubs or bars nearby (actually, nothing nearby)
+ rooms offer everything I need for business and nothing more: electric outlets were available, rooms were clean, WiFi works well
+ Quite good breakfast, lot of healthy choice

Bad things
- Hotel really is in the middle of nowhere, quite far away from city
- Only one restaurant, with average food quality
- Minimum staff - same people took care of reception and restaurant
- Bathroom was VERY basic: no shower curtain, for example

A 13 Euro cab fare from the airport when I arrived, this is a small, two storey travelers hotel with basic rooms (two single beds in my smaller-than-I-am-used-to room) and bathrooms.
Front desk staff was efficient and had good English. The rooms were clean, linens were good (more in the wardrobe if you need), only shower/bath gel though, unlike North American hotels where you seemingly get every flavour of toiletry imaginable and then some. Being balding and short-cropped, the lack of a provided shower cap was not a problem. Free wireless internet which was easy to access and reasonable speed.
The Spanish themed restaurant upstairs was adequate for dinner - a reasonable selection, and ask for the English menu because Finnish is impenetrable! A small lobby bar with a TV (the euro soccer was on) was good for an evening beer.
I was there in mid-June. Why is this significant? Because up here the sun shines and never really stops (OK, they get an hour or so of "dusk") and in my room (108) the window coverings were not really sufficient for a troglodyte like me to get quality shut-eye. I think the odd numbered rooms on the other side of the hotel might be better.
On the plus side, if you like sauna, there were four on my floor alone!
Set in quite a small village close to the seashore there were footpaths leading up and down the coastal marshes and some birdwatching stations, so at the appropriate times of the year might be a place for the twitchers among you. I went and had a look but saw two seagulls and several squadrons of mosquitoes which soon drove me back inside.
Quiet, not unpleasant. Utilitarian rather than anything special. No idea why you might be passing through the airport at Oulu, but a good place to stay if you are. If you like a little bit more life around your hotel locations, the extra distance into the town itself might suit you better.

This old hotel is situated 4.5km from the airport and 10km from Oulu. If You just need an overnight stay with bed and breakfast, You might give a try for this hotel.
Pros:
+ Comfortable bed.
+ Silent hotel, got a good sleep

Cons:

- Mininal amenities, only body gel for showering (ask more from res.)
- Limited breakfast with few options.
- Mosquitos everywhere outside, not able to enjoy path to nature.

There are a busline from airport to Oulu and a bus stop near this hotel. Bus runs only 1-2 times in hour.
