Hyatt has announced plans to add its first hotel in Sweden, with Stockholm’s Hotell Reisen joining the group’s Unbound Collection.
The existing waterfront hotel is located in the city’s old town, and is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment programme.
It will be available to book through Hyatt as an unbranded property from December 1, before joining the Unbound Collection in early 2021.
The Reisen name originates from a 1750’s coffee house run by Dutchman Frederick Reiss, a business which was expanded to include accommodation in the early 19th century.
According to the hotel’s website the current property has 144 rooms, wellness and gym facilities, a restaurant, and a meeting room for up to 16 guests.
Two other Hyatt properties are also under development in the Nordic region – Grand Hansa Hotel in Helsinki, which will also join the Unbound Collection, and the Hyatt Centric Reykjavik.
Hyatt launched The Unbound Collection in 2016, which it describes as “a portfolio of new and existing upper-upscale hotel properties, ranging from historic urban gems to contemporary trend-setters, boutique properties to resorts and private home accommodations”.
Recent additions to the brand include Hotel du Louvre in Paris, and Great Scotland Yard Hotel in London, a review of which can be read at:
Commenting on the news Peter Norman, senior vice president of development Europe, Hyatt, said:
“At Hyatt, we are focused on thoughtful growth based on locations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers, and Stockholm has been a priority market for some time.
“While Stockholm is known for its high barrier to entry for global brands, the rich history and unique location in central Stockholm make Hotell Reisen a perfect addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand.
“This brand has seen great momentum across the region, as each property celebrates their destination’s distinct culture and atmosphere, and we look forward to expanding the brand’s footprint in the Nordics.”
