Scandic Hotels has enhanced its coworking concept to include breakfast within the price following the popularity of a pilot project at its Swedish hotels.

The hotel group launched what it says is “the largest network of coworking spaces in the Nordic countries” last year. Since its debut, the group has sold over 102,000 coworking hours at nearly 270 hotels in the Nordic countries, Germany and Poland.

Now, the group will include a hotel breakfast at its coworking spaces at its hotels for €19 per day. Guests who want to opt out of breakfast will only be charged €9.50.

According to the group, there has been a great interest in coworking in the Nordic region, with the need for permanent offices decreasing.

Scandic’s coworking concept is open to drop-in guests as well as small and large companies, and provides a variety of spaces – from lounge seating to more quiet areas and private workspaces upon request. The 24-hour coworking concept also includes wifi and power outlets, coffee, tea and sparkling water, print and copy service, and discounts in Scandic’s shop and restaurant.

Anna Spjuth, Chief Commercial Officer at Scandic Hotels Group, commented:

“The past year has taught us that our working day doesn’t necessarily have to start with stress and rush hour traffic, but also that we need more dynamic environments than our home offices to get inspired. Starting your day with a relaxing, luxurious hotel breakfast is quite possibly the best way to begin your workday. And a breakfast meeting is the perfect way to rebuild your network after more than a year and a half of pandemic living.”

Scandic joins various hotel groups which are driving revenue during a difficult time for the hospitality industry through “work from hotel” schemes. See our feature:
