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.

Very good location in exactly middle of the City, next to largest shopping malls, restaurants and all other services, with Scandic standard breakfast, which is quite good. Also very easy place to find and parking is arrange well, if costly. For us the beds were way too soft and pillows almost useless so 1 star minus for those.

Hi there! A nice review, thank you! It is good to know you enjoyed your stay at out hotel even though the bed quality could have been better. Maybe we could upgrade you to another room class with better beds the next time you visit us? That would give you the opportunity to test if the high grade beds are more suitable for you. We'll think about it, yes? So thank you for visiting us in Oulu and hope you see you soon again! Best regards, Juha

Location wise is perfect - nears to everything (Oulu market hall, shopping center or any popular restaurants and services). However didn't experience that good sleep probably because of the room's ventilation. Standard Scandic breakfast, worthy with the money spend.

Hi! Thank you for visiting us in Oulu and sharing your experience here on Tripadvisor. I'm sorry to hear the room's ventilation disturbed your sleep. Did you report it to our reception so that we could take a closer look on what it was about? A good night sleep is something we don't want to bargain about. Anyway I'm glad to notice your stay was also a pleasant one to some extent. Hopefully Scandic Oulu City will be your choice also the next time you visit Oulu. I wish you a Merry Christmas! Best regards,

I stayed at Scandic city for five days during a business trip. The room was quite large in finnish standards, but not very modern. TV's are tiny. Beds were kind of soft. Breakfast was very good and there was several healthy options available. The location couldn't get any better regarding bars and restaurants. Also jogging routes are plentiful and start right around the corner.

Hello! Thank you for this nice feedback of yours. I'm glad to read the quite long visit of yours went mainly well. We do recognize the TV issue also brought up by you. It is a bit sad to blame this on covid19 but the fact is that the pandemic delayed a lots of our investments. We have done a few updates to our breakfast a few weeks ago. The variety of healthy foods was increased by adding a few plant based items into our breakfast selection. It is good to know you appreciate our efforts on this one. Thank you for visiting us and we hope to welcome you to Scandic Oulu City soon again! Best regards, Juha

New hotel just in the middle of the city. Silent rooms, good beds. We asked to have the room a few hours longer and it was arranged by the friendly staff. The hotel has sauna and gym, but those we didn’t use.

Night at Scandic Centrum was full 10+. All went just perfectly. Food in the restaurant (buffet) was absolutely great. Breakfast cost-value level also rated really high. Todella onnistunut majoitus ja ruokailu kokemus. Ystävällisyys ja sijainti täys 10.
