Sokos Hotel Eden Oulu Reviews
Holiday Club Oulun Eden Aug 04, 2008
I was two days in Oulu and slept the night in Eden. For the first I have to say that it isn't really cheap (maybe most expensive hotel in Oulu), but because it is spa I wanted to go there.
I (I was travelling alone) arrived there somewhere around 4pm. Receptionist was really nice person and checking in was succeed without any problems.
THE ROOM was for two people (they don't have rooms for one). It was very simple and clean. It kinda felt a bit empty. There was two beds, table, three chairs (two of them were stools), mirror, lamp, blower and closets with iron and extra pillows in them. There was also bathroom with toilet, shower, basin, mirror, hair dryer, bathrobe, etc.
Bed was too hard for me (I know that it is suppose to be healthy or something, but I like about soft beds).
Reason why I went to Oulu was that I wanted to see one movie. Distance from Eden to movie theater is over 3 kilometres and I didn't want to walk that so I asked from reception when busses go to centre. Receptionist helped me without no problem (sometimes people in service industry seem to have problems with customers asking questions, maybe they are having bad days, but they shouldn't show that the customers). So service there is really good.
Next morning I did go to see what is the gym like and it seemed pretty good. I had with me only pants which weren't really good for excercising so I didn't try anything there.
BREAKFAST (includes in the price of the room) was delicious and versatile. There where food like porrige, many different kind of cereals, many different type of breads, cheeses, sausage, vegatables, pancakes (small ones) scrambled eggs, meatballs, many different drinks, people could make their own waffles and many other things. I have mention that place where breakfast was in was scenery restaurant that had view to Nallikari beach and ocean on other side and to hotel's spa on other side.
After breakfast I did go to spa, but I'm not gonna talk about that here (I think it is "Thing-to-do" in Oulu so I'm writing another review about it).
Like casually in Finland I had to give away my room by 12 pm.
I have nothing to complain about so I'm giving 5 stars. :)
