Lovely, modern, clean hotel! Perfect location, comfy beds and quiet rooms. Wonderful breakfast buffet. Really pleasant stay in all aspects. Nice theme throughout the hotel and attention to detail in the hallway carpets, little notes left here and there, excellent service!

The renovation of this centrally located legendary Oulu hotel is almost complete. The rooms have been refurbished in the ambiance of bright summer nights, the scent of tar, and the wild salmon.

On the top 7th floor are two suites with saunas and large balconies overlooking the Rotuaari pedestrian street. In August 2018, we stayed in the same suite #709. Now only the balcony was the same. The interior has been completely revamped. The suite felt more spacious and had a very stylish decor. The other suite #710 has a bigger living room with a dining table for six.

The suite was very well equipped. There was everything you could imagine to need starting from the sauna scent. Also, we have never seen such a modern Nespresso machine.

In 2018, we paid exactly the same price 214 euros. It was a prepaid Summer Deal then. Now it was a Black Friday sale with flexible rates because of the COVID.

My only complaint is the breakfast that was very average. It is served on the 3rd floor in a separate space. All egg dishes (boiled and scrambled) were finished. On departure, we noticed that they were replenished but that was too late for us.

Very warm and friendly reception. Special treat to our doc. Also breakfast eas very good. These were the reasons for our second visit to this hotel.
We parked our car in the street as the height of parking hall was only 2 meters. The only thing that bothered us was the noisy air conditioning in the room.

Room tip: You can park the car in Hallituskatu

Had a wonderful staycation. Hardly anything negative to say: the check-in was quick and we were given few room options to choose from (which was very nice), rooms were given a beautiful face-lift, the staff was friendly, and the room was quiet so we got to sleep peacefully. The breakfast was quite basic but tasted good. There could have been some high quality teas available for instance.

Loving the new room! And it was very easy and fast to check in with phone app & mobile key.
Comfortable bed & I really like the local Toripolliisi statue in the room. It would be nice to spend more time here, now I’m only on a short work trip. Can’t wait for breakfast. It has always been great.
