Skellefteå’s new living room

Scandic Skellefteå has undergone a real makeover. The majority of the hotel’s 1313 rooms have been renovated, but the first thing visitors will see is what Scandic themselves would like to call Skellefteå’s new living room.
"We would like to open up", explains Patrik Nordkvist, Hotel Manager at Scandic Skellefteå. "Our goal is to create a natural meeting place, for both visitors and locals alike."

SCANDIC HOTELL - SKELLEFTEÅS NYA VARDAGSRUM

At Scandic Hotell in Skellefteå, the ambition is to cross boundaries. To open up and invite. Put simply, to create a living room for everyone who wants to meet.

Scandic Skellefteå has undergone a real makeover. The majority of the hotel’s 1313 rooms have been renovated, but the first thing visitors will see is what Scandic themselves would like to call Skellefteå’s new living room.
— We would like to open up, explains Patrik Nordkvist, Hotel Manager at Scandic Skellefteå. Our goal is to create a natural meeting place, for both visitors and locals alike.

A NEW LOBBY CULTURE

The change is, as Patrik explains, not just cosmetic, even though the new environment is indeed inspiring. Fresh. Open. Modern. Everything from the lobby and the bar, to the
restaurant and its kitchen is new and connected to an ambition to springboard the hotel into the future.
— We’re doing this from the ground up. We want Scandic Skellefteå to be a living hotel, not just for our hotel guests.
Patrik says that today, hotels face new demands. Amongst other things, a new lobby culture has developed.
— A pleasant lounge environment where people enjoy sitting down to work or unwind, is considered a hygiene factor today.

NEW FOOD EXPERIENCES

As we said, the entire kitchen is new, both in form and function.
— We want to offer our guests genuine, top quality food experiences. Our Food Court lies at the heart of that.
At the Food Court, you will find fish, meat and vegetarian courses for lunch every day. There is also a chef on site whom you can talk to about the menu.
— We also have a small á la carte selection, serving local ingredients with influences from all over the world, as well as Sharing Dinners.
A Sharing Dinner, explains Patrik, is a more social way to experience a meal.
— You are served everything on one big plate.  Everything on the plate is for sharing with your friends around the table.

A MORE MODERN HOTEL

The new Scandic has plenty of social spaces. A nice bar to hang out in, serving a selection of cocktails with herbs from their own garden.
— I see us hosting cultural events and stage entertainment, as well as exhibitions. This helps create a dynamic environment which I think will draw many visitors.
Also, many of the rooms have been equipped with bunk beds, increasing the number of family rooms, at the same time as conferencing facilities have been given a more modern touch.
— Thanks to the large amount of work we have put in, we have created a more modern, more in-demand hotel with amenities going far beyond traditional hotel operations.
