great breakfast, and a room where you can sleep, that's nearly all about it. Room was quiet, but there was no minibar and the overall impression was litlle outdated in the hotel. Free parking was a plus. I chose this one because I got a good offer, this was the cheapest Hotel In Oulu at that time, and it was... More

Judged on looks alone it’s not got much going for it. It’s a pretty ugly looking building on the outside, and not much better on the inside. But that’s where it ends. So if you are after looks don’t stay here. Once inside the reception staff were warm and welcoming. Very polite, efficient at check-in and informative. Ask for a... More

Oulu is a winter city, thank's for ice-hockey & Team Kärpät. Cumulus has been refurbished a couple of times during resent years, now they have sauna facilities back, okay. Hotel itself is a medium, without any lux but everything is working well, especially staff is friendly & helpful. Easy to achieve and nearby centrum.

We normally drive right away from southern Finland to Lapland but this time we decided to stay overnight in Oulu. Our choice for hotel was Cumulus with very reasonable room prices. Arrival was however a bit challenging due to almost full and very narrow parking areas with very small parking spots. We got our car there finally, but I had... More

I stayed there for a business trip for three nights, good connectivity from / to airport and city centre. Good breakfast was served in the morning and nice and very well decorated room. Overall it was warming experience in extremely cold weather.

If you are traveling with your car, this hotel offers you a nice bonus: no parking fee. :) Rooms are clean and all basic things will be found. The bathrooms are not very spacy, however they are larger than cabins. Young ice hockey players seem to prefer this hotel. ;)

The facade is bunker-like seventies brick but the inside is agreeably airy and modern. The room I had was more than adequately spacious, clean, neat and well-designed. The breakfast is the standard buffet; the only variation on the usual theme is that the area is rather gloomy and the food not particularly appetising. Nothing memorable stands out about the hotel,... More

Very basic. Room had no A/C but luckily there was a fan available. Clean bathroom, no amenities except shampoo in a large dispenser unit. Poor breakfast. Rate quite expensive for what you get. Window was to inner yard, very loud at night, could not sleep with window open.
