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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is our family's favorite hotel in Oulu, where we stop for the night on our drive to Lapland. The breakfast is incredibly diverse. You can squeeze your own orange juice, enjoy bread cheese and cloudberry jam, hot croissants, and coffee served at the table. Highly recommended!

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel was very clean and quiet, and the staff was professional and kind. The setting is nice, with beautiful views over the water. I enjoyed the sauna, and ate a dinner in Bistro Mesu and had breakfasts in the main restaurant area. The breakfast buffet is large, featuring a wide variety of international breakfast options.

I have stayed in this hotel several times over the years - enough to have reached a high tier in their loyalty programme. This hotel has a great staff and there’s an overall very laid back feel to this place. It feels like home away from home. Their breakfast is very good. Hotel guests have access to the gym in the premises, operated by a private company and not by the hotel. This is one of the best hotel gyms I’ve seen. So bring you gym gear! During our current stay we had an issue with dogs barking in the room opposite. When notifying the staff the issue was dealt with very efficiently with apologies, though.

Had a very nice stay at Radisson Blu Oulu in December. The family room worked well for 2 adults and 3 kids (age 5, 7 &9). Bed was really comfortable. There is a very well equipped gym downstairs that guests can use for free. Breakfast was great! Also got a great Christmas drink at the hotel bar.

This is absolutely my favorite hotel at Oulu, they always have the king sized bed available and the breakfast is so good. Restaurant there is one of the best ones in Oulu as well. You get free access to a real gym and sauna with your stay. I use this hotel almost every time i come to Oulu. Also from the perspective of a ex hotel chief engineer, rooms are in good condition and places are well kept, give some positive feedback to your maintenance guys as well. Some staff needs smile more and not be so ''angry'' for the questions i often ask, but mainly they are very friendly.

This hotel has a very welcoming and friendly "vibe". All staff members that I met were polite and attentive; reception, breakfast restaurant, and also the house cleaning staff. I also noticed some wonderful touches: The renting of bikes, the outside areas, and the beautiful coffee cups at the amazing and delicious breakfast. The level of cleanliness is very high, and made me feel very relaxed. Very quiet room with big, comfortable beds. I slept like a baby! Spotlessly clean bathroom, with soft, white towels and amenities. Water boiler and coffee maker in our room. Also a minibar if you suddenly need a snack or a soft drink at night. It's a short walking distance to everywhere, both wonderful green parks and vibrant city life. So the location is perfect, and so was the view from our hotel room. I'm impressed with Radisson Blu Oulu. They should be very proud of their outstanding hotel. PS. Also dog friendly, and easy parking.
