3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Hotel is a bit out of date, but everything works and the service is very friendly. Mediocre breakfast buffet. Parking is free and there was many free slots. the hotel is few blocks from the main street Rotuaari

This hotel is very easy to access. It is only 2 blocks from the railway station. It is as basic as a hotel can be. Rooms are basic and clean. Some people in reception are very friendly, some far from it. Breakfast is OK but nothing special. There is a sauna with small swimming pool. Nice small free business corner by reception. The hotel group Restel has very weird rules regarding the different bonus points based on from which website one makes the reservation. It is almost like cheating.

I stay in this hotel every time i visit Oulu. There are two reasons for that: location and possibility to have my dog with me. The hotel is located two blocks from railway-station and in the centrum of the town. Hotel has free parking, free wi-fi, breakfast included the room price. Breakfast is ok and sauna is clean and good.
This is a very good hotel for business travellers, too.

You will not get disappointed, nor positively surprised. This is a reliable standard Cumulus hotel with standard Cumulus room equipment, standard Cumulus breakfast, standard Huviretki-restaurant menu, etc..

The company operating this hotel, Restel, is known to do any refurbishments as late as possible. You can see that in this hotel. I really think that some of the wall decorations in elevator halls in each floor is actually from 1980's. No problem with that.

The service I received was professional and friendly.

Cumulus Oulu is like any other Cumulus hotel when we think of room furniture and breakfast for example. The rooms are basic to good quality with a cooler (not fridge), extra pillows and so on.I have visited this hotel a few times, and it has never disappointed me. I have been happy with the way they keep their good quality of service in reception and restaurant. Even though the menu in the restaurant is about the same as in other Cumulus hotels, the kitchen seems to know what it's doing - and maybe offers a bit more than what is needed.

The hotel is not situated in the very centre of Oulu, but it's easy to walk there. You can park your car or motorcycle under roof, the parking area has never been full when I have been there.

A somewhat tired hotel, but not at all bad. Breakfast is OK, and the Internet connection also good, Rooms average, nothing special but quite OK. For Oulu, the hotel is not up to the standard of the Radisson Blu, but the price reflects this, and the location is very central.

Hotel Cumulus lies close to the city center. Slightly slow in-checking (only one employee and a trainee). Our room was spacious although a bit too warm and offered very good night sleep. Bath room was shining clean, however, a little worn. The breakfast was a basic Finnish hotel breakfast - no surprises. Excellent choice if you are looking for a budget-priced hotel stay!
