Kesäyö (Summer Night), Lohi (Salmon) and Terva (Tar) – Original Sokos Hotel Arina's room renovation begins!

Our long-awaited room renovation will begin on 1 October 2020!

We will process the rooms one block at a time. The first section, with 71 rooms, will be renovated by early 2021. PAVE Arkkitehdit, an Oulu-based architectural firm, is responsible for designing the room renovation, and the whole renovation project is scheduled to be completed during 2022. Our hotel is a responsible holder of the Green Key certificate, and recycling is a major part of the renovation. 

Our home town, Oulu, is filled with stories, and we want to bring these stories to our new rooms. Strong elements of our town's history include tar burning, the wild salmon and the theme of thousands of stories and songs, the summer night. You can read more about the stories on our website, or write your own in the hotel's guestbook.

Our hotel will serve as usual throughout the renovation, even though with a lower capacity. Many of our special rooms will be under work first and, for instance, the suites on the 7th floor will not be available. 

Additional playing area for children has been requested and will be arranged. We will provide more information on this later. Model rooms for each room theme are already complete and can be reserved through our sales service at +358 8 3123 255 or sales.oulu@sokoshotels.fi.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the renovation.
