The most interesting projects from Helsinki to Kilpisjärvi
In November 2021 a total of 55,417 hotel rooms were available in Finland, according to Statistics Finland 4,757 more than a year earlier. And there is more to come.
As we realized that there are plenty of new and exciting hotels opening and still under construction in Finland, we put together an overview of some of the most interesting projects from Helsinki to Kilpisjärvi. This article has been divided into 4 parts, so make sure to read them all.
Now, let us start our journey in the south of Finland, in the capital Helsinki.
Quite little surprisingly as the most populated region in Finland, the capital city counts the largest number of new hotel projects. Last year it was reported that in 2022 a total of 7 new hotels are expected to open their doors in Helsinki, followed by further 11 by 2024. Currently the Helsinki region boosts 16,500 hotel rooms and this year the capacity is expected to increase by 1,292 rooms if all projects proceed as planned.
The largest new opening in 2022 will be the congress hotel Scandic Avenue in Annankatu, in a former printing house that until recently hosted the European Chemicals Agency office. Besides 350 hotel rooms, a restaurant and a bar, the facilities will include 2,000 sqm conference and events space.
