21 Jun 2019 by Jenni Reid

Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel in Stockholm has reopened following a multi-million pound renovation of its guest rooms, public areas and event spaces.

The 34-year-old hotel is next to Stockholm Central Station and has 459 guest rooms and 15 meeting rooms.

The new design by Spanish firm Proyecto Singular incorporates plants, natural tones and warm materials.

Guestrooms have been given new bright walls with panels in dark wood and works by local artists.

Chromecasts have been added to each room to allow audio and video streaming.

Radisson has almost 60 hotels in the Nordic region, and is spending €100 million on renovating properties including the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Oslo, the Radisson Blu in Tromsø; the Radisson Collection Hotel in Copenhagen and the Radisson Collection Hotel Strand Stockholm.

Tom Flanagan Karttunen, Area Senior Vice President Northern Europe for Radisson Hotel Group, said: “Our aim is to always improve the guest experience, which is why we have invested so much in renovations in the Nordic region.

“The hotels look better, the food tastes even better, and the service has been raised to yet another level.”
