    With Scandic Haymarket, we want to create a unique grand hotel for both Stockholmers and travelling guests. We will let the grand meet the playful and create an exciting encounter between the past and the present, old and new. We will refine and highlight the building and the area’s unique character and history. The hotel will be a powerful element of a new character in Hötorget square with its concert house, movie theaters, hotel, restaurants and marketplace

    Norway is an important home market for Scandic. During this year, mainly as a result of the acquisition of Rica Hotels, we have increased from 19 to 86 hotels in Norway, from Kristiansand in the south to Svalbard in northern Norway. With the acquisition of these three hotels, Scandic will further solidify our position as the absolutely leading player in the Bergen market.
    Frank Fiskers, President & CEO of Scandic
    I can't believe we're only a few days off from opening Jamie's Italian in Stockholm – our first in the Nordic region. I know I'm biased, but the restaurant is absolutely stunning and I just know you guys are going to love it. Our new team have been training incredibly hard to make sure that everyone who comes to visit will have a truly fantastic experience. It's going to be epic.
    Jamie Oliver

    Frank Fiskers, President & CEO of Scandic
    We see a strong trend that people are looking for different experiences, something that is unique and tailor made. With a modern, mobile and fully equipped hotel which can be booked anywhere a guest wishes, we hope to attract guests from abroad who want to experience the Nordic countries in a different way, as well as all those looking for that little extra for a truly memorable experience.
    Johan Michelson, VP Brand & Marketing Scandic
    It’s brilliant to receive this confirmation that the work we’re doing to attract young talent is appreciated by the target group. Our team members are our bedrock, and we try to be clear about the development potential that exists with us. Through the acquisition of Rica, there are now even more development opportunities, both geographically and within different professional areas
    Henrik Dider, HR Director Scandic
    It’s a major achievement for us and it feels great to be given confirmation that all our hard work to give our guests a fantastic stay has paid off.

    When tackling a tough schedule with several crucial matches, you have to consider everything. A key piece of the puzzle is of course a comfortable bed that works for me

    It’s so easy. When I stay at a hotel I want to spend my time on other things, like enjoying a leisurely breakfast, so having this option is perfect
    Marcus Allbäck, players manager
    Scandic is growing and we are constantly on the hunt for hotel projects in great locations. We’ve found a real treasure with Scandic Kristiansand Bystranda – one of the finest hotels in Norway, right on the beach but at the same time in the heart of town. Finally, Kristiansand has a hotel that offers the very best for holidaymakers and business travellers alike.
    Svein Arild Steen-Mevold, Vice President Scandic Norway
    The launch of the Esso Motor Hotell marked the start of a new age in the Swedish and Nordic hotel industry and we made it possible for more people to stay at a hotel. Now one in six hotel nights in Sweden are spent in a Scandic bed
    Anders Ehrling, CEO of Scandic Hotels
    The partnership with Scandic means a great deal to us. I hope the guests will appreciate the hotel rooms even more and enjoy the wonderful fragrances and the pure, simple products
    Gun Nowak, founder of FACE Stockholm
    Practically all our new city hotels have turned a profit in their first year. We’ve opened no fewer than six new hotels: Scandic Aarhus City in Denmark, Scandic Tampere Station and Scandic Paasi in Finland, Scandic Fornebu in Norway and Hamburg Emporio in Germany. We’ve also taken over an Ibis hotel in Sundsvall.
    Anders Ehrling, CEO Scandic
    It's great that our chain has been recognized internationally. Customer satisfaction is something we put high on the agenda in recent years and it is nice to see that it has produced results. We are continuously working to ensure that we have a high level of service at our hotels
    Margareta Thorgren, VP Group Communication
    We are pleased to have found new owners for the property who will continue running it as a hotel. Scandic’s core focus is on operating hotels, not owning property.
    Anders Ehrling, CEO Scandic
    We are naturally pleased to be able to meet guest demand for independent reviews on our site. Guests are increasingly basing their choices on comments from other guests, which is why we’ve now decided to join forces with TripAdvisor. We believe this will increase our sales, and above all, customer satisfaction over time
    Sara Järnemar, Social Media Manager at Scandic
    - Due to the earth’s magnetic field you have a better chance of experiencing the aurora the further north you get. However, many of our guests miss to witness this magnificent phenomenon during their stay up here. This is why we choose to offer this service to our guests.
