Our goal is to offer our guests an easy and comfortable stay flavoured with a good breakfast, wi-fi, professional service etc. So no frills but simple functionality not to forget the smallest details and the importance of our guests' wishes and needs.

I travel for skiing. The hotel personal speaks Russian and English very well. Room was clean and safety. But this visit has some problems. 1. Public computers has problems with internet connection. 2. Too small different maps of Oulu region on hotel reception. But this problems was solved by visiting Oulu Tourist Center. I'll recommend this hotel to visit in... More

Nice sized standard rooms. Staff were helpful and attentive. Bit off putting when checking in because they were bit too keen to offer an upgrade. Had to ask several times if the upgrade was free ( to include individual sauna) but it was extra 70 Euros per night. Not exactly an upgrade!

Hello Paul! You're right, we try to sell our higher class rooms practically all the time if we have any availability left. But it should never be repulsive or even near that so I'm sorry we did not fully succeed in delivering our message. However I let my self understand that there was nothing else wrong with your stay although... More

Oulu is a very progressive city high in the Nordics. You will find excellent comfort at the Scandic Hotel location in Oulu. I enjoyed the quality of the rooms and the quiet environment. The breakfasts are on par with other Scandic locations. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dinners served in the restaurant. One usually wants to... More

Hi Steve! Thank you for your comments. I really appreciate your views on Oulu and our hotel. Oulu is still a quite new city to myself but I've stayed here long enough to say that Oulu is a lively town but not yet lovely as it is raining again which takes away all the snow and light. Our restaurants are... More

Price was very cost effective with a Scandic card. I recommend to get one! Regarding this hotel, I've got nothing to complain, everything worked out very well. No rush at reception, good quality room and versatile breakfast. This was a typical Scandic hotel with minimalistic and functional design, which might appear a bit too cold and clinical to the romantics.
