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.

We offer beautifully furnished and well-equipped guest rooms with high-quality, extremely comfortable beds. We want to ensure that all our guests enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. Read more about accommodation >>

“Wonderful, idyllic place. The tea at 5 pm was nice. In a good location, quiet but reasonably close to the center.”

Petri N.

“I didn’t stay, but I enjoyed being given a house in a friend’s karokka. The food was excellent and the history of the place made an impression, which the hostess of the place entertainingly told us about.”

Niko K

“The party space was Ester, which perfectly accommodated 20 people. A great place where you could see the history of the house. The wedding menu was delicious and the service worked flawlessly. I definitely recommend it.“
