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.

Location was great. Parking hall was spacious and we got our car loaded everytime we wanted. The breakfast was excellent and staff there took our kids a notice. It felt great. I was on a holiday alone with my three kids and everything went easy on a hotel. We will definitely come back to this hotel

Scandic Oulu has never let me down! I have travelled years in Finland both at work and also during my vacations. In Scandic Oulu everything always functions perfectly. When hot, they pour you a glass of water already by the reception and when cold and snowy, one is able to drive in the garage and get in to the reception without too much trouble!

This was my 4th stay in this hotel. There is a very happy lady working in the breakfast hall and her greetings always put a smile on my face. She is such a sun! The hotel was fully booked and the breakfast supprisingly busy at 6.30 am. The cleanliness of the room was ok, nothing to complain, but could be improved. I daily handled something with a receptionist and it happened to be the same lady every day. The last day she gave me a good favour for free which I really appreciated. The staff made the visit again!

The room was very cold (about 18 - 19 degrees celcius) and there were only one thin blanket. The machine in the wall (to add/reduce warmth) did not work. Staff was not able to do anything; the first one was friendly but helpless, but the second one come to my room to argue and raised her voice and did not leave despite my repeated requests.

Hello! Thank you for your feedback and visiting our hotel in Oulu. I'm sorry to read your stay did not meet your expectations. I understand the ideal room temperature is a personal preference for all of us. Therefore we have programmed the basic temperature to 21 degrees and allow our guests to adjust it 2 degrees up or down. Now I am not sure about the factual temperature of your room. Even though we have no reports of any malfunctions for a long time, we cannot deny your feeling about a cold room. What comes to the behaviour of my colleague when solving this issue during your stay, I must say I'm sorry for that incident. I assure you this is not the way we communicate so we will definitely take a closer look into this. Best regards, Juha

We stayed one night with a group of three adults. Our room was standard family three. The room was spacious and clean. The single beds were quite narrow and the person sleeping on the extra bed was the most satisfied with her sleep. The hotel's location is excellent in the center of Oulu: an easy walk to the market place and restaurants. The service at the reception could have been friendlier and we think that the vegan diet at breakfast should be better taken into account - or if it is not possible, it should be compensated in the price.

Hi and thank you very much for this feedback! I'm happy to read you had a pleasant stay with us even though there were a couple of things we could have done better. We will take a closer look into vegan selection at our breakfast and see it is at least on the level required by our breakfast guidance. Thank you for visiting us and welcome to Oulu soon again!

Varm and stuffy room, not possible to regulate temp. When leaving the card in the main switch in so that the ventilation can work while you are away they are removing the card from the switch even if you have a cooler box pluged in to the mains. Not possible to open window, temp outside was around 20. No maintenance available in the weekend (we asked), so you are stuck The room it selves feels like a hospital all white. There is no energy shortage now in the middel of summer..

Hello there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts online. I am a little bit confused about what you mentioned here. We do have a possibility for our guests to adjust the room temperature by themselves in every room of ours. Then again removing keycard from the switch does not shut down the ventilation and cooling so there is no connection between them. However you are right about the possibility to open the windows in the rooms. We do not courage our guests to do that because it does not go along with the automated ventilation & cooling system. In practise the effect is just the same than in modern cars where an open window messes up the inside temperature. I hope your stay with us was anyway at least tolerable even though there was a couple of grievances on your path. Have a sunny and great summer! Best regards, Juha

Over priced for service quality. Receptionist was rude for no reason. Room was ok. Beds were narrow but ok for one night stay. Basic breakfast. Parking expensive. I would not come back to this hotel..

Hi there! Thank you for sharing your feedback online and visiting us in Oulu. I'm very sorry to read my colleague behaved rudely - at check in I suppose. Rudeness is not allowed to be in our DNA but friendliness is. But I will look into this and we will have a chat of what went wrong, learn from our mistakes and become better at what we do. I'm disappointed to read you are not returning to our hotel anymore but then again there are very nice alternatives in Oulu, including Scandic Oulu Station which you may not have visited yet. Enjoy the summer of 2023! Best regards, Juha
