Grand Hansa Hotel in Helsinki, slated to open in 2022, will become the first The Unbound Collection by Hyatt property in the Nordics.
Incorporating references to Finnish folklore and mythology, Grand Hansa Hotel’s historical facade will represent the city’s fascinating past. Combined with Helsinki’s vibrant atmosphere, the hotel will provide independently minded guests with experiences reflecting The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand ethos. Prior to its opening, the hotel will undergo a renovation leading to the development of 224 guestrooms and a newly built entrance.
The Grand Hansa Hotel will benefit from the strong demand of both business and leisure travelers to Helsinki with forecasts predicting 30 million passengers by 2030. The property is opposite the Central Railway Station and a 30-minute train or taxi ride from Helsinki Airport, and is within a 5-minute walk from nearby shopping outlets and tourist attractions such as the Helsinki Market Square and Finnish National Theater.
“We are thrilled to see the development of Grand Hansa Hotel in the Nordics as Finland is an important market for us,” said Guido Fredrich, Hyatt’s regional v.p. of development for Europe, in a statement. “We are excited by the growth we have seen in Helsinki’s tourism sector in recent years. The region’s rich history and distinct culture make The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand a natural fit for Grand Hansa Hotel, as we grow our brand presence in the European luxury market.”
Grand Hansa Hotel will become the eighth addition to the expanding The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio in Europe. It will join the Hotel du Louvre in Paris, Parisi Udvar Hotel in Budapest, Hotel Martinez in Cannes, Nish Palas in Istanbul, Sofia Barcelona in Spain, Hotel du Palais, Biarritz and the recently opened Great Scotland Yard Hotel in London.
