I was in Oulu for work last week. I stayed at the Radisson and had a very pleasant experience. The front desk staff are efficient and helpful, the breakfast was good with lots of choice, and unlike some hotels, you didn't need a degree in electrical engineering to turn the lights on and off. Providing an iron and ironing board...

The location is perfect, right in the centre of Oulu. The staff is always very professional and motivated. Our room was very quiet and the view was beautiful. The best part of the stay was the delicious breakfast, of course!

Most possibly the best hotel in Oulu and the only one which belongs to some big international chain (I don't count Scandic as big international chain). It is mostly as Radisson Blus everywhere but a bit more shabby and service is more regulation oriented than customer focused. I asked to upgrade us to Business Class Room as normally do because...

Stayed for one night on business. Good location within walking distance from most places in the city centre. Room was a little bit dated, but clean and fresh. The breakfast buffet was the absolute highlight of this stay, there was a lot to choose from and everything I tried tasted great.

I visited the hotel on a business trip. Requested a room with a view and actually got it, which was nice. Reception was very friendly and the room was your basic, excellent Radisson Blu room (I love their beds). Location is great: by the sea, close to the famous statue and near shopping and restaurants and whatnot. Nothing to complain...

The extra 20euros was definitely worth for the Business class room. King size bed w memory foam, lovely linen. Room was spacious and had a beautiful view to the theatre at night time. Breakfast was plentiful but crowded on Sun morning - take a seat from the podium if you can. We did not have the time to use the...

This hotel never fails. Been here many times and always a pleasure to stay. Smiley staff at front desk, quiet room, one of the best breakfast services in the country. Additionally, when travelling by car, there is plenty of space to park right next to the hotel. Big thumbs up! Thanks
