Radisson Blu Oulu is neat and comfortable hotel at perfect location. Price and quality ratio is ok. The staff is friendly and the food is good. I recommend it for business or pleasure. Location is good. Near the Oulu central. It is easy to come and go.

Thank you for your kind review. It was nice to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us. It has been great to see that the locals are also finding us and having short breaks and mini holidays from their daily routines. We have been getting lots of positive comments about our comfortable beds and of course about the super breakfast buffet. We hope to see you again! With kind regards, Pasi Pollari/ Front Office Manager

We stayed with children for new year eve. The snow started falling in the afternoon just after check-in. Location in excellent close to market, library, main attractions. We could see fireworks at night from our room. It was a great start of the year with Sauna and everything.

Room Tip: Top floor is better as there is a night club bellow. Lifts are fast.

i and my husband checked in to the hotel we did not have warm welcome and receptionist did not ask our passports even there was no concierge and bellboy service neither valet parking, the room was absouletly cold although weather is minus 7 degrees we have called to front desk to solve this problem but we had answer that the heating system is central and he can not do anything for us in the night, breakfast was so poor that we had one more dissappoint there was old lady waitress that she came and ask like whats going on here do you want coffee? was very rude to the guest . when we were checking out in the morning the receptionist was asking us that if we are happy !! we said all the problems but she did not even offer to me to fill any complaint form or something and we asked to reception a night before we check out a wine opener she started check back office she couldnt find it and she said i dont have go and ask in the restaurant we go and pick it up from the bar. an advice for you front office! when a guest ask you something if it is possible to find easily do no say to the guest i dont have or no or i dont know!!! do possible as much as you can !!

Thank you for your more comprehensive review via Tripadvisor than through our hotel´s survey, in which you did not give us much details about the things you were dissapointed in. I am very sorry to hear that our hotel was not up to your standards. I hope that otherwise you had a pleasant visit in Oulu. With best regards, Pasi Pollari/ Front Office Manager

There's an exceptionally loud nightclub downstairs that kept us awake till 4 am - avoid lower floors at any cost (our complaint was taken seriously and we got a fair compensation). Very friendly staff.

I stayed in the hotel with my family and we all liked it very much. The staff was great and very friendly and made us feel very welcomed. The building is quite old but still the rooms were comfortable, modern and very clean. The pool area with a sauna was good even though the water in the pool was cold. Breakfast was excellent, definetely one of the best ones I have ever had in any hotels I have visited. They had a large choice from hot to cold food, definetely something for eveyone! My kids loved it too! They also have a variety of games and books at the reception for the kids to make their stay even more enjoyable. The beds were great (both for the adults and the kids) and we all slept very well. The nice view over the sea is also definetely a bonus just like the location very close to the city centre. I can warmly recommend this hotel to other travellers!

I hope that we will see your family next time when you have chance for a short break or even for a longer stay in Oulu. With kind regards, Pasi Pollari/ Front Office Manager

It is not newest hotel, but they have done a good job to get it comfortable to stay. They upgrade me to suite as all business rooms were full when arrived. Suite and bathtub was excellent. No complains at all. Lobby bar area also very nice to sit with and spent time.

Thank you for your kind review. It was nice to hear that you had a comfortable stay with us and you had a chance to try one of our bigger rooms. We have three junior suites either equipped with a bigger bath tub or a sauna. Also our specious executive suite, the biggest (80m2) suite in town has all these features and the sauna department is also even suitable for bigger groups. Maybe there will be some special occasion in the future and it is good to know, what kind of selection of rooms we can offer you :). I hope that we will see you again in Oulu! I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! With kind regards, Pasi Pollari/ Front Office Manager

This wasn't the best Radisson Blu I ever stayed, but in Oulu´s city is a very good accommodation option. Is not a brand new building, and that is easy noticed on a few details everywhere. But the Radisson Blu standards are there, and the location is great. In the city center, is a very good option to stay while visiting the city.

This hotel is always full, large excursions of turists, businessmen and businesswomen and also flight crews.

The view over the city is great or over the sea!

Breakfast is great, large choise from cold to hot food.
