Ambitious plans for the spectacular Scandic Holmenkollen Park

376 rooms, 16 000 square feet gym and spa facilities and a conference area with a capacity of up to 1200 people. This summer newly renovated and modernized Scandic Holmenkollen Park will reopen on top of Oslo.

The extensive renovation is a collaborative project between Scandic Norway and property owners Eiendomsspar and Rica Eiendom. The overall aim is to become the preferred destination hotel in the Oslo region. During the course of the renovation, 388 000 square feet across nine buildings will be renovated and the capacity significantly increased.

When this unique hotel opens on June 16th, it will offer 376 rooms and suites, a modern conference area with a capacity to host up to 1200 persons, a new à la carte restaurant and bar, a wine cellar and 16 000 square feet of gym and spa facilities.

- A visit to Scandic Holmenkollen Park will be a unique experience, whether you’re here as a conference guest or on holiday. The hotel is easily accessible by metro and is perfectly located on top of Oslo, in near proximity to the Holmenkollen National Ski Arena. From here you can enjoy nature, go for a hike or just enjoy the breathtaking view in comfortable surroundings, says General Manager Claus Petersen.

Even though the hotel will be thoroughly modernized, its 127 year old history will be entwined with modern solutions through unique artwork, historical items and details from the original hotel that has been restored and revitalized. Some can be seen in the main building, where you will also find the lobby, the new à la carte restaurant and bar and a big, charming fireplace.

- From here you’ll be able to enjoy paintings you otherwise would have had to visit the National Gallery to see, and tapestry from the legendary artist Gerhard Munthe. These items will tell the colorful story of a hotel that has hosted some of the biggest artists of the world throughout its lifetime, says Petersen.

Edvard Dirik’s painting «Seterhytte i Nordmarka» has been at the hotel for more than 100 years, and was rescued from a fire in 1895. This painting encapsulates the very idea of Scandic Holmenkollen Park, and the thought of the hotel as a comfortable and safe place to seek shelter in the raw and spectacular Norwegian nature.

There are also great expectations attached to the renovation of Dragebygget – the architectural masterpiece that is one of the main buildings in the Norwegian dragon style that was particularly popular between 1880 and 1910. This building will contain 27 unique rooms and suites, and the new wine cellar.

– A stay at Scandic Holmenkollen Park will be something to remember. We will make this beautiful hotel shine again, says Petersen.
