Hotel Kämp in Helsinki is renovated and Hobo Hotel moves to GLO Kluuvi
Pohjoisesplanadi in Helsinki is a hive of activity. The iconic Hotel Kämp is undergoing a renovation. At the same time, a new Hobo Hotel is moving into the neighbouring building in the old GLO Kluuvi.
Hotel Kämp in the Finnish capital Helsinki is undergoing a facelift. The end result will be a completely revamped hotel that can meet the increased demand for a wide range of hotels in the luxury segment. The renovation will be carried out with great respect for the building's history, says hotel owner Petter Stordalen. The modernisation is currently being planned and is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2023 and be completed by the end of 2025. The hotel will remain open during the work.
At the same time, a new lifestyle hotel is moving into the neighbouring building. There will be a Hobo Hotel in the former Hotel GLO Kluuvi. The urban hotel concept in Stockholm is known for moving away from the norms of traditional boutique hotels. It focuses less on concierge service and upscale cuisine and more on pop-up clubs and natural wine. The new hotel will feature, among other things, a brand new creative arena suitable for everything from meetings and events to pop-ups and unconventional workshops.
In addition to the renovation of Hotel Kämp and the development of Hobo Hotel Helsinki, owner Ilmarinen has also signed an extended lease agreement with Nordic Choice Hotels. The agreement states that Nordic Choice will operate in the properties for at least another 20 years.
