Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel completes Radisson Hotel Group’s most extensive renovation program ever in the Nordic region

Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce the completion of the Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel, Stockholm in Sweden, following its ambitious multi-million renovation project. The renovation is one of several renewed Radisson hotels across the Nordics, as the hotel group is now finalizing its most extensive renovation and investment program ever in the region.

Ready for its 35th anniversary, the hotel has become an elegant and vibrant meeting place set in an unbeatable central location right next to Stockholm Central Station on Vasagatan.

Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President Northern Europe for Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Our aim is to always improve the guest experience, which is why we have invested so much in renovations in the Nordic region. So far, we have completed refurbishment programs at, among others, the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, Oslo; the Radisson Blu Hotel, Tromsรธ; the Radisson Collection Hotel, Royal Copenhagen; the Radisson Collection Hotel, Strand Stockholm; and now the Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel, Stockholm. The hotels look better, the food tastes even better, and the service has been raised to yet another level.”

In 1960, Radisson Hotel Group opened its first hotel in the Nordics and currently operates close to 60 properties across the region. As part of the group’s continued commitment to the region, Radisson Hotel Group has invested more than €100m in renovations of its Nordic hotels over the past few years – in addition to significant investments from the property owners. The renovation program is the most extensive in the region ever, and the results have created enhanced guest experiences and award-winning design hotels.

The new design concept of the hotel’s communal areas – such as the lobby, the Stockholm Fisk restaurant, and the stunning atrium area – has been carried out by the renowned Spanish architectural studio Proyecto Singular.

In the project, Proyecto Singular has taken on words from author Maya Angelou who said “I have learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

With the guest experience at the core of the 360-transformation of the Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel, Stockholm, Proyecto Singular have created a city hub with lively areas where guests can share rewarding moments in a social and welcoming environment. The base of the design has the roots of the Mediterranean, with plants, natural tones and warm materials that create a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere.
