This was our first visit at the hotel. I must say that the room was clean and size was ok too, but our bathroom tub was clogged. We informed the reception about the matter and it was taken care of actually almost right away. That was a positive surprise. Our biggest (negative) surprise were the breakfast buffet Saturday morning. The... More

The service is always excellent in Scandic Oulu. You really feel welcome when you arrive. The reception personnel works quickly and they are willing to help you. The breakfast is very good and I like that they have lengthened the time of the breakfast up to 11 o'clock during the weekends as it can be quite crowded during the last... More

This is my first and last stay at this Hotel. For my great surprise this is a Hotel you need to ask to the reception at the checkin to clean the room everyday otherwise you have to clean serviette and draps by yourself. In case you know how this hotel it works and you ask for cleaning you will discover... More

Hello MichaelGP P Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the service you received and your room was not properly cleaned. All our guests get daily cleaning unless they want to skip it. During daily cleaning our housekeeping for example makes your bed and changes your towels if they are left on the floor. Our housekeeping does not change... More

Hotel was ok with clean and good rooms. What I did not like was the cleanness of the breakfast restaurant. Difficulty to find a table where to sit as all was over crowded with used dishes. If this part of the hotel service will be fixed this hotel will be ok. General in my opinion is that this hotel was... More

I have stayed here on several occasions. Check-in was friendly and efficient. They even tracked down my Scandic number to give me a discount voucher for food & beverage! My room was clean and quiet. Underground parking beneath the hotel is another plus. The hotel really needs to work on the restaurant organisation; surroundings are pleasant, but I was not... More

I stayed one night at Scandic Oulu. Sales service succeeded well, selling me bigger and more expensive room. I like hotel's own parking garage! Service at the reception was good and friendly.

Scandic Oulu delivers as expected from the brand in the middle of Oulu city, in Finland. Everyting is clean, spacious and in good working order. Some call this Scandinavian styling, some say it's dull. Your choice. Recommended for families with children, too. Note: only microwave oven is located in the lobby. If you need to warm those milk bottles late... More

I stayed at Scandic Oulu for one night during a recent business trip. The hotel is fairly new and of good standard. The service was good and pleasant. Rooms are of good size and beds are comfortable. My room was on the second floor and facing the street so some noise could be heard during the night. I guess the... More
