Me and my (family= wife,daughter and dog), were spending a weekend in oulu shopping and chilling. We were staying in radisson blu oulu witch was a totally new experience for all of us. Hotel is located wisely almost in the core of city and parking area was opposite the hotel distance to car about 40 meters. One and the most important reason staying in this hotel was that it an animal friendly hotel. So you a aloud to bring your dog with you. Hotel was not bright new, but breakfast was so well organized and served that i would say it is maybe best in finland or close to it.

Thank you Juha for your review. It´s nice to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us and that you had a pleasant visit in Oulu. It´s true that our location is very convenient for a dog owner. We are almost right in the middle of the town, but we have a straight access to local park areas straight from the hotel´s main door. We are hoping to see you again, during your next visit to Oulu :) With kind regards, Pasi Pollari

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
