Nice-looking hotel with comfy beds and above average breakfast. The problem is how the hotel deal with serving their customers (, or actually the lack of service). It took me 30 minutes to get through to the front desk, and the prompt and urgent service I have so many times experienced at i. e. at Radisson in the US, UAE,... More

With the recent pull-out of a major western hotel chain out of Oulu, Radissonblu has enjoyed an improvement in its competitive situation. No surprise the hotel was nearlly fully booked when I had to find a room for an instant one night stay. The room on their executive floor was basically ok, but the long years of service could be...

I spent one night at the Radisson and appreciated the clean room, nice view of the water, prompt staff, and location near the market and heart of the city center was a bonus. Despite being the room next to the elevator, no noise was heard.

We used this hotel for 9 nights during May while visiting as part of an EU project. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly, the rooms were clean and the food was excellent. We ate at the restaurant on several occasions and had memorable, enjoyable meals each time.

Stayed for 6 nights in the hotel for a conference. My room was large and located high up, and quiet, as requested. Nice views over the river. Other colleagues had rooms facing the other way, where there is construction ongoing at the moment, and noise starting early in the morning, so be make sure to request room facing the other... More

Stayed just one night at this hotel but I really enjoyed it. The hotel was quiet and clean with normal sized rooms. The location was great. Close to shopping, restaurants, lovely walking areas along the sea and the canal. And best of all was the delicious hotel breakfast.
