Scandic opens new “storytelling hotel”


Scandic Paasi has rooms set in three different eras

Scandic Paasi, which Scandic Hotels calls Finland’s new flagship hotel, has opened close to the recently restored and expanded Helsinki Congress Paasitorni building in the city’s Siltasaari district. Accommodation, conferences and restaurants are located under one roof in a historical environment. Scandic Hotels have taken advantage of the history of the building, where, Scandic says, “the interior of the hotel tells stories about the colourful history of the building as well as about interesting personalities that lived in the area through the years.”
The 170 rooms communicate different local stories in three buildings from different eras – the 1920s, the 1950s and the 2010s. This storytelling design has been created by Gothenburg-based architects Stylt Trampoli.
The walls are decorated with wallpaper that replicates the styles Georg Rieks started to produce in the 1830s in Siltasaari. The hotel has its own wallpaper design, in which the guests are presented the work of historical personalities.
