Great position near the city centre, clean rooms (some of them have a little sauna inside) and they also have a wide choice of foods for breakfast. But the best thing was the excellent staff! The receptionist in particular was very kind and friendly, he suggested us what are the typical foods to eat and gave us good advices to spot the northern light!! I recommended it
Stayed two nights due visit at the Oulu theatre. A small hotel, excellent value for money. If you look foor fancy rooms and red carpets, this hotel is not for you. If you look for a hotel just to stay one or two days in an inexpensive little hotel, consider this. Or, they do have bigger rooms, stayed in a standard room. A tiny room and a tiny bath room, but everything clean, the personnel was so truly friendly and ready to help you, the complimentary coffee /tea buffet all day long, with even some small pastries. The breakfast was even good,
Quite nice, very close to every thing walking distance (train, downtown). Personnel extremely professional and kind, they are willing to help any time. Recommended totally (price quality optimum). Breakfast wide variety of combinations. You have access to extremely good coffee the whole day. Internet however to slow. It is some thing to improve.
The receptionists with whom I had contact (three altoghether) were all very friendly (sincere heart-felt friendliness) and helpful with any request or question I came up with. The room (single on 5th floor) was a bit small, bit in relation to price paid still OK. A friend had booked a business room (price difference was not that high); this was spacious, nice in style and had a private sauna. Free coffee, tea and small pastries all day (self-made, not bought!).
We expected something standard when we booked a Best Western. But this place is just terrible. First in a sketchy location with prostitutes out front. Then just really old and shabby, run down bathroom, terrible decor. And to top it off, very expensive.
Hotel Apollo is a convenient hotel if you travel with train to Oulu. Already when you step out of the hotel you can see the railway station, which are only a few minutes away. Friendly staff. I could check in much earlier than usual. Plentiful and varied buffet breakfast. Nice atmosphere.
We really like the coffee and biscuits downstairs :). Also the receptionist is friendly and atmosphere comfortable. The room is very spacious and comfortable. The coffee machine is great!! No filter coffee.
This Best Western hotel has a nice location close to the railway station. The rooms are OK as well as the bathrooms with nice shower space. Some rooms have an inbuilt sauna. The general look was clean, but walking barefoot in the room was revealing the floor was not that clean. Anyway, you get enough for the price. The hotel has own small parking space, wifi and restaurant. Free coffee and sweet bread is offered for the guests in the evenings at the restaurant. The breakfast is nice, but if you enter the last hour, there might be not everything available any more. The staff is excellent. When choosing the room, over the karaoke bar will not be the best choise.
I've stayed in Hotel Apollo on three separate occasions. The first was two years ago, and the room was so small that I hardly could turn around in the bathroom, and the free floor space between the two beds was like from a doll's house. The two latter rooms were marginally bigger, but both times with a tiny sauna, which was nice. I believe I will return to this hotel if and when I travel to Oulu, but not because of the rooms. Instead, the ground floor lobby is open from early morning to late night, offering free coffee, tea, biscuits, donuts and suchlike to customers/guests. You can also sit in the lobby, which is calm and quiet during daytime, and work on whatever (silent) thing you are working at, and drink as much coffee/tea with nibble as you want. Also, the breakfast is better than in most Finnish hotels of the same price range, and it is included in the room price. To add to this, the hotel staff is very hands-on, friendly and helpful. When they move around among the guests (like in the breakfast room) they wear masks. Hand sanitizer is available on many spots. And finally, the location is perfect: one minute's short walk from the railway/bus station, and couple of minutes' walk from Oulu's central attractions and shopping areas. The hotel itself doesn't have a restaurant, but there are several very good restaurants just around the corner. Apollo might look a bit worn from the outside, but it's clean inside, and not the least a fleabag. Luxurious it is not, but definitely worth a recommendation.…
pleasant stay for a business trip.Room was good and had built in sauna. staff was very helpful and friendly. But No extra facilities like Gym at the hotel.Room size is quite small according to the price range.
