The NH Collection hotel portfolio expands with a new opening: the NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa, which opened its doors on June 3rd. With this hotel, the brand makes its debut in Finland, becoming the second NH Collection hotel located in the Nordic countries following the opening of NH Collection Copenhagen in Denmark in 2021.

Discover the NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa

The NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa hotel offers a perfect setting for unforgettable experiences, combining two historic buildings of great significance to the city: the New Student House and the Seurahuone. The first of these is one of the finest examples of Art Nouveau style and was built in 1910. The second has been the oldest hotel in Helsinki.

Respecting architecture is the company’s objective.

After a careful restoration and renovation of its facilities, NH Collection aims to preserve the history of both buildings, maintaining their spirit of sophistication and hospitality that has characterized them. The company’s goal is to preserve the rich historical heritage of two iconic places in Helsinki while adapting to the needs of the modern traveler.

Its proximity to Helsinki Central Station, which directly connects to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport, makes it a perfect choice to experience the best of downtown Helsinki. Additionally, the hotel is located in one of the busiest and most vibrant shopping areas of the city, close to the Amos Rex Art Museum, Ateneum Art Museum, and the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art.
