Scandic Go Oulu

Scandic continues to expand with the opening of a new 144-room Scandic Go hotel in Oulu, Finland in 2025. The development is part of a long-term lease agreement with property developer SRV, positioning the hotel in the centre of northern Finland's largest city.

The new Scandic Go hotel, scheduled to open in the second half of 2025, will be located in Oulu city centre. Scandic Go offers affordable prices, a welcoming design, self-service facilities and access to breakfast and hot meals at any time of the day or night.

In particular, the property will be designed to meet the requirements of LEED Platinum certification, the world's leading green building rating system. This certification underlines Scandic's commitment to sustainable development, assessing key aspects such as biodiversity, water conservation, energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality. In addition, after its opening, the new hotel will be certified with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, confirming its commitment to environmental responsibility.

Often referred to as the capital of northern Finland, Oulu is a vibrant centre for technology, science and education. The region has an attractive hotel market.

The opening of Scandic Go will strengthen the brand's presence in the Oulu hotel market, adding to its existing portfolio of three hotels and 565 rooms in the city.

"It’s gratifying that we’re continuing to expand Scandic Go to key destinations where we see growth opportunities and increasing demand from business and leisure travelers. The hotel’s strategic location in the city center complements our existing portfolio and addresses the lack of hotels in the economy segment in the region." - Jens Mathiesen, President & CEO of Scandic Hotels Group

"Oulu is the lifeblood for business and tourism in the region. The establishment is in line with our growth strategy in Finland, and by launching this new Scandic Go, we will strengthen our position in the region. We can also leverage market trends and fill a gap in a rapidly growing market. Together with SRV, we’re creating greater incentives to visit and explore northern Finland." - Laura Tarkka, Country Managing Director, Finland at Scandic Hotels

"Together with Scandic, we are responding to the demand of Oulu's hotel market by developing the building into a central and important center for supporting tourism and business life. We are aiming that the hotel will be ready for Oulu's big events, such as the European Capital of Culture." - Hannu Lokka, Director of strategic project development of SRV
