It's your average chain of hotels. Not very personal, but you've got most things you'll need. Good parking facilities and a central location. Additional tip, Scandic has the most user-friendly wi-fi ever. No need for a 10-digit password.

Moden, nice hotel just in the center of Oulu close to the harbour, market place and market hall and the major shops. Easy to go to Oulu attractivities: Pikisaari, small islands, theatre. Good quality rooms and bathroom. We enjoyed the breakfast as well. Car parking under the hotel. Movie theater on the same yard.

Room was nice and clean. Also hotel's restaurant Fransmanni was worth of going. This hotel is good option if you are staying in Oulu. You can easily walk to shops, restaurants..etc because everything is nearby.

Scandic Oulu will allways be the one and only hotel that we can almost call "home". Nice staff, clean rooms and good curtains, near city center and shopping, exellent breakfast and quite nice elevator.

This hotel is always at a good level. Good breakfast, cleanliness of the rooms, courteous staff, located in the city center. You can rent bicycles for free. Of negative I can only say that there was no kettle in the room. But for some people it is not needed. And there is no free parking. I recommend this hotel as... More

Scandic Hotel is very close to much as everything you would need to see in Oulu. Rotuaari and the market place are within walking distances for 5-10 minutes; shops are very close too. From the airport is easy to get there, the bus leaves you just around the corner. There is a cinema right next door to the hotel. The... More

I´m always stay at this hotel while I´m visiting Oulu. The hotel is clean. The service is excellent. The staff in restaurant is friendly. Food is very good. The waiters carry out even the smallest customer desires. The hotel has a nice atmosphere. The hotel's location is great. The sea is short even though the hotel is in the center.

Nice place in the center of Oulu. Had this been a normal priced hotel the experience would ve been good. With 150 € per night however you just feel ripped off. The breakfast is nice, and the 27 € buffet lunch is a joke. Just leftovers from last night. Some gym equipment are cramped in a room downstairs, where u... More
