Scandic and AxFast will open certainly one of most famous grand hotels in Stockholm. The hotel will be located in the historic PUB building and that will only strengthen positions of Scandic as the leading hotel company in the region. Both the companies hope the new hotel will be a popular place for meeting for both travellers and Stockholmers.
The PUB building is known as one of oldest department stores in Stockholm. From this place guests will be able to enjoy beautiful skyline of the city. The store is also famous because of one notable fact Greta Garbo started working there as a shop girl before her glorious Hollywood career. Scandic will transfer the building into a hotel, but its atmosphere will be left unchanged. The property will be designed in the 1920s style mixed with today’s cosmopolitan big city vibe. The total area of the building is around 16,500 sq. m., and it will be divided into a 400 guestroom hotel and around 3,000 sq. m. will be occupied by restaurants and meeting facilities.
Scandic Haymarket in Hötorget square will be certainly popular with tourists who will enjoy not only service, but also wonderful location of the hotel, which is close to concert house, movie theatres, restaurants and shops.
Currently, Scandic is the biggest hotel operator in Stockholm with over 6,100 guestrooms in the city and its suburbs (4,500 rooms in the city alone). In 2014, the hotelier added approximately 1,200 guestrooms to its portfolio by opening Scandic Kungsgatan, Scandic Klara, and Scandic Gamla Stan hotels.
