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

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.

Great hotel wich I have stayed in several times on business trips to the lovely city of Oulu. Grate beds and good zised rooms. Always polite and friendly staff. Pluss for the basement gym and indoor parking. Being a Scandic even the hotel restaurant is over the common Scandic standard.
