Oulu is one of most exciting city's in Finland, if you would like to have a few night's stay in OULU to rest before continue your journey to/from Finnish Lappland, experience NORTHERN LIGHTS and much more.....
If you have BUSINESS trip to Oulu this is a place where you feel almost like your are working from your own home comparing to expensive, boring, small hotel room.
This apartment has 3 real beds available (additional mattress and baby crib is also available on request ) great and affordable for small family with infant and/or small cilldren's
As average HOTEL room size in US (2015) was 30 m2 and with HOTEL price $122/night (112€/night), in Europa it was $140/night (125€/night) and in FINLAND it was 95€/night, with this apartment you will all most double the size of living space with compare to about half of the hotel room price.
It is your home away from home. And every one in a family has own real bed to sleep on and wake fresh next morning to explore what OULU has to offer.

As anything in life nor apartment or your host is perfect. But I will do my very best to make your OULU experience best possible I can. The NeighborhoodVery close to downtown area were lot of activities in OULU take place; restaurants, farmers market, Rotuaari (the pedestrian area in downtown), night live and much more near by within minutes away by walk. Getting AroundOulu train station less than 5 minutes away by walk, bus stop next to building (on Saaristonkatu side, see pic # 14, this bus stop is named; Rautasaari P ) which allows your access to city beyond downtown and explore surrounding areas outside of city limits.
