This is an average hotel located in the centre of Oulu. I had a business room which was very nice and spacious and had it's own sauna. I didn't use the sauna but if you were a sauna person then I'm sure this would be a big attraction. It doesn't do dinner on the premises but there are alot of... More

This Best Western is really a nice hotel in Oulu. Regarding the localization, you are in the middle of the town, close enough to the walking street, restaurants, tourist information and the train station. I was in a 1 person room, clean, big enough with all you need. The business room have also a private sauna with is very pleasant!... More

Oct 2012, moved rooms due to ridiculous closeness to lift. Became unwell, staff were almost disinterested. My stay worsened due to circumstances beyond my control. Staff were cold, unsympathetic and unreasonable which could've had disastrous results for a female alone. Stayed in many hotels around the world, plus others around Finland. This was by far the worst... Ever! HORRIBLE. My... More

On a good location in Oulu, near railway station and walking street Rotuaari, shops and restaurants. Hotel offers basic ***-star city hotel accommodation. Clean and standard rooms, not so spacious but ok. Room with a private sauna is nice. Friendly staff and good breakfast. Even my room was on the 1st floor, on the top of the karaoke bar I... More

Yes, location is very handy, near to the railwaystation if you, like I did, travel by train. And as the town is not very large, within 10 minutes you are at the waterfront in the centre. But my single room was really tiny and very unpersonal. Clinical, sterile, I felt as if I was in a hospital. Also the reception... More

Apollo seems to be renovated recently. The rooms are small but clean, almost like brand new and well equipped. My room had sauna and of course I tested it. It's very small sauna but gave surprising good heat and was very relaxing. The location is good meaning the city center, trainway station and restaurants are in walking distance. This hotel... More

Hotel Apollo is just a 2 minutes walk from the Oulu railway station, and 5 minutes walk from the main shopping area. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around the hotel, so at times, it can be quite lively on the streets. I had made a very good deal in booking a room on the Internet. At the check... More

Apollo has been recently upgraded and the rooms are nice and clean. Some of the rooms have sauna, and you can enjoy the sauna in your own peace and comfort. Location is good and service friendly. Sometimes you can get very good deals if you book on the Internet. Try to get a room as far away from the disco... More

We stayed one night at Best Western Apollo. The room was rather cheap, but it was the smallest hotel room I have ever seen!. However, it was clean and nice - no luxury. Unfortunaetly it seemed that the walls were very thin. We woke up many times during the night due to noices from other rooms. The breakfast was also... More

The rooms are small - like European standard and the washrooms - wow - never imagined it to be so small. I thought how can the washroom be but this place beats imagination. Even the corridors are not wide enough. If the the opposite rooms open the door at the same time they hit each other (yes the doors open... More
