Finnish folklore and mythology to inspire design of Hyatt’s Grand Hansa Helsinki

We’re thrilled to see the development of Grand Hansa Hotel in the Nordics, as Finland is an important market for us.
– Guido Fredrich, Hyatt's regional VP of development for Europe
Finnish folklore will inspire a new Hyatt hotel, due to open in Helsinki in 2022. The property, which is owned by Ylva, is located in the historic Seurahuone Building.

The opening of the 224-room Grand Hansa Hotel will mark the introduction of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt to the Nordics. The existing building is due to be refurbished, with design influences from Finnish folklore and mythology, while the hotel’s historic facade will be retained to represent the city’s past.

“We’re excited by the growth we’ve seen in Helsinki’s tourism sector in recent years,” said Guido Fredrich, Hyatt's regional VP of development for Europe. “We’re thrilled to see the development of Grand Hansa Hotel in the Nordics, as Finland is an important market for us.”

To realise the scheme, Hyatt has entered into a franchise agreement with Primehotels Oy – a private Finnish company that owns, builds and operates premium hotels in Finland.

The Grand Hansa Hotel will be the eighth addition to the Unbound Collection by Hyatt in Europe.
