An urban oasis in the heart of Helsinki, Finland, NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa is the newest addition to NH Collection Hotels & Resorts lineup of upscale emblematic hotels. The new hotel debuted this past spring, offering travelers sophisticated accommodations, indulgent culinary offerings, and seamless access to cultural hot spots.

Continuing the legacy of NH Collection Copenhagen in Denmark, the first NH Collection Hotels & Resorts to open in the Nordics, NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa has officially opened its doors, welcoming guests to its sophisticated yet historic grounds. The Helsinki hotel originally comprised two historically significant heritage buildings: the Art Nouveau-style New Student House, built in 1910, and Seurahuone, Helsinki’s oldest continuously operated hotel. These two establishments have now been transformed into the NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa after a careful and respectful renovation and restoration.

The storied space now houses 224 guest rooms, including a 1,722-sq.-ft. presidential suite. Each guest room has been elegantly appointed to replicate Europe’s finest hotels while paying homage to its charming early 20th-century beginnings with comfortable, yet modern luxury.

The hotel brand’s legendary legacy of hospitality is showcased through its opulent experiences, including the gastronomic offerings at Hansa Café Bar & Brasserie, a signature French dining destination. The new restaurant features classic French cuisine crafted with sustainable ingredients and regional flavors. An elevated bar experience, Kupoli, will also open in late August, offering guests a 360-degree view of the city as they sip carefully curated cocktails in a historic dome-shaped tower. 

The highlight of NH Collection Helsinki Grand Hansa is its central location in Finland’s capital, providing travelers with seamless access to nearby restaurants, shopping, cultural experiences, and museums in Helsinki. Additionally, two national parks are within proximity to the city center and are open year-round for visitors seeking outdoor excursions.

When guests aren’t exploring the urban grounds, they can indulge in a rejuvenating experience at the hotel’s spa. This wellness destination embraces Finnish traditions, translating age-old health rituals into modern therapies. The resort also features a sauna, steam room, infra-red sauna, and a state-of-the-art gym. For more information, visit
