Scandic Helsinki Hub opened its doors in the Finnish capital, housed in an impressive 1920s printing house that has been transformed for the occasion.
Scandic Helsinki Hub is strategically located at the crossroads of downtown Helsinki and Helsinki south district. Vestiges of the former printing house have been preserved in the design throughout the building.
Guests can choose accommodations that offer a variety of special features, including rooms with a private terrace overlooking the hotel courtyard and junior suites with large corner windows.The rooms facing Annankatu Street also offer views of the verdant Old Church Park.
Along with unique loft-style rooms, the hotel features 8 event, meeting and coworking spaces along with a trattoria and bars. The hotel’s restaurant, Trattoria II Centro, features Italian cuisine along with a selection of vegan dishes made with authentic Italian ingredients. The property also features fitness and spa areas.
As at all Scandic hotels, sustainability is a central part of Scandic Helsinki Hub. The hotel is ecolabeled according to the Nordic Swan Ecolabel’s new criteria. Many of the original elements have been preserved in the building and recycled materials such as plastic bottles and textile waste for furniture and carpets have been prioritized during procurement.
We are delighted to open a new hotel during a period when we’re seeing good development in the Helsinki region where activity levels have returned at our hotels. Scandic Helsinki Hub is a splendid addition to our existing hotel portfolio in the capital as both domestic and intra-Nordic leisure and business travelers are back in our hotels.
Aki Käyhkö, Head of Scandic Hotels Finland
We want to be a hub where people from all around the world can meet and spark new ideas. We’re opening with a close to 100-strong international team and I’m extremely excited to welcome guests from all over to this fantastic hotel and extraordinary building.
