The hotel, although from outside looking a bit old-fashoined and boring, has a perfect location very close to the nicest places in Oulu. The staff is extremely friendly and helping ; the breakfast offering is better than competition. All in all, we were very satisfied with our stay.

Good hotel. Clean and good view. Excellent breakfast. Very close to a wealth of nightlife and sights in Oulu, especially some outstanding restaurants and bars. For business in the Oulu area this is nicely located, central to most everything and about 20 minutes drive to the airport.

I've stayed at this hotel before, it was OK, but based on my experience that just happened - I'll never stay here again. I was in my room when I started hearing and smelling gas. I called down to the front desk said there was gas leaking and that they needed to someone immediately to my room. 10 minutes later,... More

Thank you for your review. I am very sorry to hear about the incident in our hotel room. During last ten years, we have had one similar incident. So it seems that this incident was very unfortunate and extremely rare. In this case the ammonia was dropping in the back of the refridgerator. The portion is not big but the... More

This hotel was very child- and dog-friendly! Our kids got colouring books and our dog even had a bed made for her (too bad she´s only allowed on the floor..) The room was clean, even the windows. The cleaners in Finland usually don´t know their stuff but this was very nice

Thank you Satu for your kind review. It was nice to hear that your family has been satisfied with the stay in Oulu and that even the dog felt himself welcome to our hotel.

Really nice staff, good rooms and superb breakfast. Dining at the Sassi restaurant was ok too, but nothing special. Good location and lovely view. We will stay again. This was definitely much better than some other hotels in Oulu.

I visit Oulu once in a while to spend a weekend there and this time I managed to get a advance booking -rate. Radisson Blu Oulu is maybe the best hotel in Oulu at the moment when comparing quality and night rate. The service is always excellent there. You really feel welcome and the small details like the bed that... More

The hotel room was new and clean, quiet. The free quest WLAN / Internet worked perfectly. The best part was the amazing breakfast buffet. It was excellent. The hotel location is also very central in Oulu so there's little need for a car / taxi.

Great location, really pleasant staff , ask for a room facing the rear of the hotel as this faces the river and not the building site at the front. I would come back but honestly would not be able to remember what the hotel looked like as it does lack character.

I have been coming here on and off for a couple of years. Faced with a limited choice of hotels in this small city, I find that the Radisson is systematically the best value for money. The other hotels tend to wildly vary their prices. This one I can depend on. In addition, the restaurant is simple and effective and... More

I prefer this hotel during my stays in Oulu because it´s excellent location near the city center and close to see. Personnel is also very nice and breakfast was fresh and tasty. I had some problems with the pillows at night and did not sleep very well.
