The room was fine, no complaints there, and the service was friendly. But the breakfast was bit of a disappointment: no bacon (!), and the scrambled eggs were watery and tasted funny. So they should work on that. Otherwise we had a lovely stay.

Spent here one night with our family (2 adults and 1 children). Requested for extra bed for the child, got it with no extra fee. Room was nice, clean and quiet. Did not try the restaurant for dinner, but the breakfast was really good. Plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, fresh bread, different cheeses etc. Car parking in a parking... More

First of all, the Finnish people should learn how to either speak Swedish or English. It is difficult to host Scandinavians if you do not posses adequate levels in either one. Moreover, when I ask for late check out, I do not appreciate being charged 80 Euros for a 2 hour late check out. You could have called or emailed... More

Hello and thank you for your review here on Tripadvisor! Good language skills are very much appreciated in our business and I'm sure some of my colleagues should improve for example their English. Swedish on the other hand is more difficult question because even though we all learn it in schools it gets forgotten quite soon after that. And that... More

I loved our stay at the Scandic Oulu. The room was very nice, it consisted of a small living room and a sleeping room AND a furnished balcony. Breakfast was great. Nice selection of different food. The only drawback was that the had only one despenser for juice. As I am allergic to several fruits, I was not able to... More

This is a nice hotel. Location is good. Breakfast very nice with friendly service. Room are always clean and fresh. Beds offer a good nights sleep. I always visit their gym and sauna, when staying there. Rather small, but ok for me.
