We had two rooms for our big family. The rooms were comfortable with bath tub and well equipmented. The gym was really fantastic, with towells and water fontaine to drink. Breakfast was delicious but I missed the Finnish ruisleipä. Thank you for such a good service!

This scandic is a smart choise for a tourist or a business traveller. Rooms are spacious and clean and everything is well maintained. Breakfast has loads to choose from and everything was fresh. We stayed for three nights and liked it a lot. ++

Hello! Choosing and booking a hotel can be a simple procedure if you are familiar with the choices you have. But when you are not you need a hand and I believe that these kinds of reviews are very helpful for people looking for a place to stay when they are out of town. Therefore I truly appreciate your feedback...

Great staff, everything happened nice and smoothly. Good breakfast as always at Scandic hotels. The room was ok, but unfortunately the bed and the pillow had seen their best days. Nice location, no noise of any kind. Good and cozy bar.

Hei Konsta! Yes, we do have great staff and I'm very proud of my collegues' professionalism and positive attitude. It is nice to read your room was quiet and no noise disturbed your sleep. I think we need to prepare ourselves in changing our beds in the near future if and when some of our beds are not anymore in...

I have stayed in this hotel a few times over the years and it has constantly met my expectations. The downside earlier has been not the best breakfast, but it has been gradually improving, being ok now. Gym is clearly above average hotel gym, which is important for me. Quite a few training equipmet + decent dumbells as well. There...

Hello! Great, thank you for this marvelous review! I'm so glad to read that your business trip went very well here at our hotel. It is not yet very common that our guests share their opinions online about our meeting services. Therefore I'm very pleased that you mentioned that you participated in a meeting and how well everything worked from...

The hotel, like many others is located in town center, but what we found was a very basic average hotel. The standard amenities found in nicer hotels are available for a fee. Even late check out cost you per hour. Sounds from hall can be heard in the room as well. Bathroom was very nice as long as you do...

Hello! Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate your opinion and view. We have a rate for a late check out but then on the other hand I can't think of any other amenity which is available for a fee with us. Naturally I may forget something now but anyway as far as I remember only late check outs,...

This is a nice and fairly new hotel. The room was clean and good. The Breakfast was good too, though the mastard bottles could be cleaner! Friendly staff and good location. The corridors smelled of vinegar which was a bit strange (5th floor). I will return!

Moi Petri! Thank you for sharing your thoughts online, I really appreciate it. A well designed hotel, like we are, keeps its shape well and can withstand the ravages of time so I agree with you that Scandic Oulu is still a fairly new hotel. You pointed out nicely a couple of good details such as mustard bottles on the...

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.
