One night pit stop in Oulu while travelling from Lapland to southern Finland. Hotel was very good. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was okay. If you wanna go to movies, it ia very easy because cinema in next to hotel. It was so cold outside that we decided to spend a night watching good movies.

Hi there! Oulu's location about in the middle of Finland is quite convenient when you are driving long distances from south to north or the opposite. Some say that Oulu's location is up north but I'd rather not agree with that because there still plenty of Finland left north from here. I'm pleased to notice you had a good stay...

I spent 3 nights here recently and was very impressed. The staff were all excellent, rooms were spacious and comfortable and the food was extremely good. If I'm ever back in Oulu, I'll certainly stay here again.

Hello! Well, a straight flush as a review is very much appreciated so thank you very much for your opinion and comments. The feeling of success and doing things right is to my opinion one of the most important factors that make people (me & my colleagues) try even harder and not getting tired while doing that. Therefore positive feedback...

Quick one night stop during the way from Lapland to south. Quiet family room on fourth floor. No free outside parking but garage available by cost (nice thing in the winter). Superb breakfast - very wide selection, fulfilled continuously.

Espoo, Finland

Nice clean hotel, very close to town center. Personnel very polite, breakfast very good and rooms comfortable and clean. Hotel is just 200 meters from pedestrian street, where (most?) pubs and restaurants are located. Time of the year was not best for visiting Northern town, since summer time would make a huge difference.

Hi there! I don't know if I should say this but Oulu really is not at its best in November. Well, it could be if we had some snow or at least clear sky and minus degrees. On the other hand why worry because snow, minus degrees and eventually summer will be here for sure sooner or later. Thank you...

Last time I was there I was not happy at all. This time I got upgraded to a nice room, which included a private sauna. Nice room, excellent service. However, there is still room for improvement. The amenities in the bathroom need to be refreshed more often. I used the lotion in the bathroom and it was rancid.. absolutely disgusting....

This is a modern, nice and clean hotel in the center of the city. It should be advised, that this area of the city is very lively at nights during weekends. Luckily the rooms are soundproof.

Hello! Thank you very much for your feedback and also for choosing Scandic during your trip to Oulu. I agree with you that the center area of Oulu is pretty lively during the late hours on weekends. In case you're a very light sleeper we can pick a room facing our inner yard which is even more quiet. However I'm...
