The brand new NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa opens its doors in 2024 and promises to be a magnet for travellers in the vibrant Finnish capital. With its prime location, directly opposite the main railway station, this five-star hotel positions itself as the ultimate destination for those looking to make the most of their visit to Helsinki.
A historical heritage with modern charm
The NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa combines two remarkable icons of the Finnish hotel industry. The Kaleva building, which once housed the Hotel Seurahuone, and the New Student House, which housed the famous Hansa Hotel from 1924 to 1968. This impressive ensemble is complemented by a modern new building and presents itself with 224 guest rooms, a restaurant and a lobby bar.
Not only the history and architecture are remarkable. Another highlight of the hotel is the rooftop bar. Here, guests can enjoy a 360-degree view of Helsinki city centre while relaxing in an incomparable atmosphere. For those looking for further luxury, the hotel offers extensive wellness and fitness areas as well as nine meeting and event rooms.
A testimony of growth
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Minor Hotels, expressed confidence about the market entry in Finland. “Scandinavia represents an attractive market for Minor Hotels with great growth potential,” he said. Leea Tolvas, CEO of the Finnish architecture company Ylva, reflects this enthusiasm and emphasises Helsinki’s global reputation as a luxury destination.
NH Collection: An expanding brand
The NH Collection brand continues to grow with new openings in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In addition to the NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa, travellers are looking forward to the upcoming opening of the NH Collection Chiang Mai Ping River in Thailand and the NH Collection Luang Prabang in Laos.
