Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a standard twin room for our overnight stay. It was our first in Hotel Oscar, but will not be the last.

The room was tidy and even though it showed some signs of wear, everything worked as expected. It was also pleasantly quiet, we never heard a sound from other residents.

We had dinner at the restaurant downstairs. The service was great and the food magnificent. Appetizer salad was well seasoned, the stakes we had as main were perfectly medium rare and creme brule with sherbet was the perfect finishing touch to a great meal.

Breakfast was also nice, with a sufficient variety of cold cuts, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon and frankfurters to get you going at the start of the day.

We'll be back

We ended up here more or less by chance, but had noted that this place gets good reviews. We enjoyed our stop over. We chose an air conditioned room, which was great on a nice hot Finnish summer day. The room was rather spacious, in a nice modern style, and very clean. Front staff was friendly and professional. The hotel also has a nice restaurant in the lobby, with many classic dishes on the menu, and friendly service. Can really be recommended, as well.

I recently stayed at the Scandic Oscar whilst on business and was pleasantly surprised by the standard of the hotel. If one considers the distance from other major cities in Finland this was as good as many that I have stayed in. It was pointed out to me that their are some major paper milla and other industries located close to the city which will attract a number of business people. The staff were very pleasant on arrival and departure and as a gold member of Hilton HHonors I was given a very nice room which had all of the modern amenities including plasma television. The restaurant has a very good extensive menu and once again the staff were very nice to serve you. The only negative point is that the restaurant area is only small and you could be unlucky and have to wait. This was at times the same at the breakfast time the following morning. I would certainly stay at this hotel again and recommend anyone in the area to also use this hotel.

Wouldn’t be my choice of a hotel, if it wouldn’t be the only hotel in Varkaus.

The room was very worn out, smelled very very stale, there were stains in the curtains ans arm chair. Room was good size, but that’s about the good things about it. The pillows were so high, so I couldn’t use them for sleeping, had to use towel instead.

Reception staff was okay, but could have been nicer and more welcoming.

The best thing and big surprice of the hotel was very good breakfast buffet, with lot of selection in warm and cold dishes. It was better than in many quality hotels that I have been, so allthough the room was not what I would expect from a hotel, the breakfast was much more what I expected.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback! I'm sorry to hear that your visit to us didn't meet your expectations. We have a lot of different rooms in many room categories and for next visit we recommend trying for example our renovated Prime Guest or Prime Superior rooms. We will be happy to help you choose the room. Lower pillows are also available from reception on request. Great that our breakfast has surprised positively with its varied selection. We really hope to see you again!

Very nice, first time but everything felt good. Didn’t need to search anything, everything where I expected. Very good breakfast. Free parking, very nice. We went to Varkaus theater, recommend that too. Katoamistemppu was superb show. Walking distance from hotel.

The normal hotel, with a lack of cleanliness, but with a head waiter in the restaurant, rude, macho, he disrespected us and treated us badly, the two days we stayed. I know that he also did it with other people from other groups and especially if we were women.
I imagine that it would be related to the owners because otherwise I don't understand why he continues to work there.

Dear 477manolia, I am so sorry to read this review and so sorry if you have received poor service. I am also a bit confused since- we do not have head waiters and at the time we received your feedback no male waiters have worked in our restaurant. Our restaurant has also been closed on Apr 2nd. Since we do not have your contact details please contact our hotel and me personally so we can manage this issue better. We aim to please all our guests and give the best possible customer service. Please accept our sincere apologies and please, we would be grateful if you would contact us directly. Eeva, General Manager

This hotel is probably the best you can get in Varkaus. It is located in industrial area, close to paper mill. Rooms are clean, equipped with WIFI internet which was a bit slow at that time. Watching of movies charged 12€ per movie, a bit too expensive.
Restaurant serve very good meals, service was really fast. Meals could be little bit cheaper. Thanks for nice stay in april 2013.

There is not much to choose from in Varkaus when it comes to hotels. Our check in was good, but it went downhill after that. Our first room appeared to not have been cleaned in awhile. There was visible dust on the furniture and the bathroom was not clean. In addition the hose from the bidet was leaking across the bathroom floor and the phone was out of order. We reported it to the front desk and we were given a new room. The new room on the fourth floor was a bit cleaner. Though the rug in the common hallway looked like there may have been a flood. There were stains running the length of the hallway. The other common areas in the hotel could also use some sprucing up. Breakfast was barely average and the staff looked annoyed. We were attending a family reunion and luckily did not have to spend much time at Hotel Oscar.

Dear Spirga, thank you for your stay and thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry to hear that your visit after the check in was not what it should have been. Every week we have an inspection for the cleaning quality - we select several random rooms and we try to keep up the very good standard. I am sorry to hear that your first room was not prepared properly for you. We shall take your feedback as an example in our next management meeting. I am sure there are many things shall improve to make sure that your next visit is more enjoyable. I wish you a great autumn time and I really hope to see you back in Hotel Oscar.

I rate this hotel average but it could easily be better. The room was large enough and clean. The shower cabinet was though very small. All in all the room had everything needed for a short stay. The restaurant for dinner was very good and service was friendly, professional with good humour. Dinner created an expectation for the breakfast. The morning came and breakfast was very poor. There was a lot of stuff on offer but it was not well prepared and presentation was also poor. Also it seemed that service personnel in the restaurant was still asleep. With little effort and most importantly with no or just moderate costs, the breakfast could be easily improved. So great evening but not so good start for the day.
