STORY, STYLE AND ATMOSPHERE
De Gamlas Hem Hotel & Restaurant is a fully renovated boutique hotel in a heritage protected building near the centre of Oulu. As early as in 1906, the building was used to house, care for, and provide food for elderly upper-class women from Oulu. It was a private retirement home. Swedish fighter pilots were also housed in the building during the World War II. Today, we welcome you to this wooden Art Nouveau villa to enjoy some peace, quiet and delicious food among the beautiful ceramic tiled stoves and log walls. De Gamlas Hem means “Home for the Elderly” in Swedish.
Elderly upper-class women, artists and Swedish fighter pilots – and many more stories. Hospitality since 1906. Read more about the amazing story of the building >>
