Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. The hotel is situated right in the middle of the town, handy for shopping and entertainment. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, bathroom likewise, with all the necessary amenities, the beds were comfortable, the sofa and armchair inviting. The air condition was perfect: across the width of the... More

Nice hotel with large family rooms which were fairly modern accommodating us five (parents, two kids & dog) effortlessly. The things that brought the review down from a four was the abysmal view that we had staring at the opposite building wall and the fact that the restaurant was closed on a Sunday.

Dear Christopher H, Thank you so much of your previous visit with us and also this feedback. It is great to hear that you found our hotel nice and rooms large and modern. Since our location is in the heart of Oulu, unfortunately some rooms have abysmal view to the opposite building. We understand that specially during the holiday season,... More

Nice, spacious rooms. I was there only for one night with an early flight the next day and they were kind enough to pack some breakfast. No complementary bottled water offered though......there's a mini bar available

The hotel itself is fairly decent and the reception personnel are usually very friendly as I have traveled here quite frequently for the last few years now so I know most of them by now. It feels like there have been some changes in the restaurant though. It used to be the highlight of the visit to have a casual... More

Hello! An evening meal in a restaurant should be also a social event, that can't be denied. I'm a little bit confused about your comments on how our service seems to have changed into wrong direction. I'm sorry if we gave you the impression of not being interested in our guests because that is not the way we work. We... More

Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. The breakfast was good and the bar was open until 11.30pm. A good place to stay for a business trip. Breakfast was slightly confusing in layout but the average fare was available. Recommended.
