“Helsingborg is one of Sweden’s most beautiful cities and I’m very proud that we at Nordic Choice Hotels will participate in this project.
A project that we will take on with great humility and create together with those who live in the city and in the area”
– Petter Stordalen, owner and chairman of Nordic Choice Hotels
A new waterfront hotel and congress centre
The new hotel and congress center has a truly remarkable waterfront location in the heart of Helsingborg. It manages to combine excellent communications, close proximity to shopping, restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as to the central business district, with an amazing setting by the quayside, overlooking the marina and Denmark across the Sound. The district is easily accessible and well serviced by public transport, being located only 350 metres from Helsingborg’s central station.
The Hotel & Congress Centre has a total floor area of 24,010 m2, comprising 253 rooms, extensive food and beverage areas, a rooftop swimming pool and 15 meeting rooms, of which the Main Congress Hall has a seating capacity of almost 1,300. The premises also include an underground car park with 228 parking spaces. More than one third of the guest rooms have a balcony or terrace and 85 per cent range between 20 and 21 m2 in size.
The residential area will be located north of the Hotel & Congress Centre. It will include more than 130 housing units and a small variety of commercial premises.
Investment in the project is a result of the city’s ambition to develop Helsingborg into one of Sweden’s most attractive cities for its residents as well as for business. The development will also create a more vibrant city centre.
