“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I was here for few days for my business trip. Breakfast was very nice. Region well known for salmon and yes I had enough for whole year. I had few post cards to be sent to Korea and yes staff were nice about it. Not enough lobby space so I had to wait standing but not a big deal. Rooms are clean. I would say solid three star hotel but with that nice breakfast, I am giving plus one!

The hotel is in a good shape and rooms are quite modern. The service was normal good Finnish service. Parking was ordered a little bit strange but found a spot to park.

The location is super and there is nice shops and restaurants near by.

We had a meeting in a small meeting room and that worked fine but was quite expensive.

The breakfast was in a big room and was served nicely. Would say that the breakfast was little higher standard than in normally in Finnish hotels.

Overall can strongly recommend this hotel.

A change up from the Airport hotel where I last stayed, just because I was in town for longer. When I visited in summer the town was hopping in constant daylight, but a little colder and darker in January!
Check-in smooth, room clean, well appointed, comfortable, service great, staff friendly. Good value. About 40 Euros from the airport by cab, but worth the trip - I'd have run in to town for a meal anyway, and the hotel rates are not that much different.
Yes, I'd stay here again on my next visit.

This was not the first time we spend a night in this hotel and will definitely not be the last either. We like the location of this hotel when being beside the sea but still close to the town center. The rooms are nice and quiet, the personnel is very friendly, etc.

We stayed in this hotel for one night, and everything went just superbly. The room had all you could ask for and the breakfast was brilliant. The staff was nice and helpfull, both in the reception and the italian restaurant. We also ate a nice athmospheric dinner with reasonably price. Thank You for everything!

I've stayed in this hotel a number of times over the years and this time stayed for one night. The building and the rooms are a little bit worn and the elevators are small. The breakfast room is spacious and the breakfast buffet is good with a large selection of hot and cold food. The restaurant also has a good selection. I ordered a crayfish risotto through room service and it was very good. The room was nice with wooden floor and very quiet. The bed was soft with nice pillows and sheets. WiFi was free of course (this is Finland). Service was very friendly, every member of the staff I contacted were very polite. The location of the hotel is excellent, just a few steps away from the center of the city. If you spend a few days in Oulu, this is the place to stay

Stayed in this hotel a couple of nights over a weekend. The first night we arrived rather late in the evening. We were impressed with the electric connection offering a deiced car in the morning. Pay and display system for parking (ten euros per 24 hours). There was a queue to get into the seemingly popular night club honoured by the local youth... After check in we tried the restaurant, sorry kids, no Rudolph this Xmas, we had reindeer stew. Loved it. Friendly service in spit of pushing last order... We had to set an alarm call the next morning in order not to oversleep (two hours ahead of the UK, long journey with transit at HEL airport) the worthwhile breakfast. Great selection, dairy free porridge, I do say, love it! Great hot dishes, selection of savoury and sweet bits.
We tried the morning sauna session afterwards. Lovely! A must when in Finland!
Would highly recommend this hotel and do not regret coming back after the first initial night!

Room Tip: We had a room with a double bed. Wi-fi is standard for in-house guests (learn from this InterConti...
