The Scandic Oulu provided a great vantage point from which to explore Oulu in the winter. The hotel's staff creates a very warm atmosphere, from the front desk (thanks Emma for making me feel very welcome!) to the housekeeping crew. My room was very clean albeit a bit dated looking. While the hotel is non-smoking, guests are allowed to smoke...

The hotel is located right in the center and offers an excellent restaurant. Rooms are very comfortable, clean, and have a nice view of the city. The main disadvantage was the small uncomfortable shower.

We stayed one night in this hotel on our way to Helsinki after spending a week in the wilderness up in Lapland. The junior suite was very pleasant surprise. Carage parking, excellet sauna and huge terrace above the city + brilliant bed - very relaxing! The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfast, however, was a little dissapointing. It was...

Hello! I hope you had a great time in Lapland on your holiday. I'm not familiar with the numbers but I assume that Lapland is very, very popular destination nowadays. I'm glad you liked our junior suite and had a good night sleep there. Our junior suites are to my opinion most suitable for one or two persons even though...

The hotel is located in a modern building in the city center. All the facilities are clean and modern. The staff at the reception is nice and the breakfast service meets the high Scandic standard (although very crowded during the winter vacation weekends). The rooms are spacious and quiet.

Hello! I totally agree with you that we are located in a well designed and modern building which is definitely and advantage for us in many ways. By the way we are celebrating our hotel's 10th anniversary so it's really been a decade since Scandic Oulu was opened. I'm so pleased to read your stay with us was good and...

Hi Jan! Cleanliness and quietness are the two features I believe most of our guests appreciate a lot just as you do with your family. Then again the friendliness of our service can't be underestimated either because that is exactly how we should encounter our guests every time and every day. I'm really thankful for your feedback and recommendations because...

Greetings from 10 year old Scandic Oulu! I'm happy to read you have been our customer for a long time now and that you're satisfied with our product. Your tip regarding our 6th floor is actually a very good one for two reasons. Firstly the traffic noise is not wafted in the rooms and secondly there are only 13 rooms...

Moikka Olli! Thank you for your review and for visiting us with your family. I'm happy to notice that you found your room peaceful enough in order to secure a trouble-free rest.

Hello! Yes, the last weekend was a busy one and we did try to prepare ourselves to it as well as we could. Therefore I'm very pleased to read your comments about our performance because these kind of weekends can go wrong in so many ways.
