Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Characteristically pleasant, functional stay in Scandic Hotel. Notably friendly reception staff. Decent room for 2 adults and 6year old grandchild - he loved it so much he was last to bed. Breakfast was somewhat of a let down. Sensible range of foods but tea and coffee could only be described as poor.

Hello! A big thank you for your visit and for this nice and polite review. I'm pleased to notice your stay was convenient and that you did not face any disadvantages despite of the hot beverages in our breakfast selection. I'm afraid we are not able to do any sudden changes for example into our coffee quality assuming that we...

Hi there! Oulu's location about in the middle of Finland is quite convenient when you are driving long distances from south to north or the opposite. Some say that Oulu's location is up north but I'd rather not agree with that because there still plenty of Finland left north from here. I'm pleased to notice you had a good stay...

I spent 3 nights here recently and was very impressed. The staff were all excellent, rooms were spacious and comfortable and the food was extremely good. If I'm ever back in Oulu, I'll certainly stay here again.

Hello! Well, a straight flush as a review is very much appreciated so thank you very much for your opinion and comments. The feeling of success and doing things right is to my opinion one of the most important factors that make people (me & my colleagues) try even harder and not getting tired while doing that. Therefore positive feedback...

Quick one night stop during the way from Lapland to south. Quiet family room on fourth floor. No free outside parking but garage available by cost (nice thing in the winter). Superb breakfast - very wide selection, fulfilled continuously.

Nice clean hotel, very close to town center. Personnel very polite, breakfast very good and rooms comfortable and clean. Hotel is just 200 meters from pedestrian street, where (most?) pubs and restaurants are located. Time of the year was not best for visiting Northern town, since summer time would make a huge difference.

Hi there! I don't know if I should say this but Oulu really is not at its best in November. Well, it could be if we had some snow or at least clear sky and minus degrees. On the other hand why worry because snow, minus degrees and eventually summer will be here for sure sooner or later. Thank you...
