Scandic Oulu

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Scandic in downtown Oulu is a fine hotel. Great access to everything in downtown Oulu. The hotel is clean, friendly. Food is good with a fine typical Finish breakfast selection. Great fresh breads. Custom order of eggs requires an up charge. There is plenty of selection. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent. Hotel parking is under the hotel with direct access. The only negative is the shower floor situation. The shower always gets the rest of the bathroom floor wet, and you have to use the provided squeegee to make the room serviceable. This is a general problem with compact bathrooms as we found at other hotels in Finland and Norway.

Nice hotel in a central position of Oulu from where you reach all the point of interest walking few minutes. Friendly personnel, cleaness and a wonderful breakfast buffet are the more relavant feature of Scandic hotel.

This is the third time I have stayed at this location. The rooms are very nice, the staff is very helpful, and the location is close to the city market place which is great during the summer. When the weather is nice borrowing the bicycles provided by the hotel make for a great evening.

Nice personnel and tidy scandinavian styled rooms - Scandic Oulu has been a secure place to stay overnight both in business and leisure. Also has been nice experience for children and dog. Movie theatre nearby easily available.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, great location. Breakfast is pretty good, rooms are spacious. Maid service was not satisfactory, the floor was not cleaned and towels were not replaced properly. Other than that the hotel is pretty good.

I stayed two nights on a business trip at Scandic Plaza Oulu. Hotel is tidy and looks new. Employees were friendly. Room was clean and roomy. Breakfast was ok. All in all a good hotel for business trip and also I would estimate for vacation. There are stores and restaurants close by and movie theatre is like 50 metres from the main door which is nice.

Hotel is in the city centre and close to the market. The room was excellent, clean and good modern décor. The breakfast had a lot of choice but the layout was a challenge when busy and there was no omelette station.

I visit often Oulu. Sometimes I stay overnight in this hotel. The location is great but there are other alternatives in Oulu as well. The hotel is clean and the reception area is nice. Rooms are bit old and the bathrooms I dislike. They are this type when showering you wet entire bathroom and then you have to wipe yourself. The breakfasts is boring, I wish there would be more fruits and perhaps some salmon or other fish available.

Had a pleasant trip at Scandic Oulu. Basically it was what i have used to expect from them. Standard and good quality rooms, decent breakfast and helpful service at reception. Furthermore, if travelling by own car, there's a parking garage below and directly connected to the hotel. Would recommend to anyone looking for a stay there.

Another stay after 10 years, much has changed, not the the better. The rooms to the street side aren't well soundproof, but in contrast to the decade before the floors and rooms needs to be redecorated a bit. The room service is not ok any more, it's not really clean, you get a single towel a day and there aren't any towels in the sauna, hence you always have to ask ask the reception for yet another towel... The sauna oven has a kind of fan with a really ugly noise. Pillows in the rooms are only about 20", so sleeping is really uncomfortable! Service at the reception is friendly and polite but not too cooperative. Breakfast is really boring, as there's no variety in the buffet and even the fruits stayed of same type for the whole business week. Only very positive on this place is the restaurant: excellent cooking and fair prices.
