Scandic Julia in Turku to be fully renovated
- It is important that we strengthen our position in Turku, one of Finlands top three hotel destinations, to enhance Scandic’s market position and brand in Finland. I’m certain that the renovation of Scandic Julia, turning it into a smart and modern hotel, is one thing that will do just that, says Frank Fiskers, President and CEO of Scandic.
Operated at Eerikinkatu 4 by Scandic, the property is mainly owned by Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company. The main contractor in the renovation project is Palmberg Turku Oy, while Haroma & Partners Oy from Turku is the main architect. The hotel’s interior will follow Scandic’s design and environmental concepts. The value of the investment is approximately EUR 14 million.
- It is very positive that we are able to bring Scandic Julia’s standards to the present-day level by expanding the hotel with 37 rooms and by updating the hotel’s technology and service options. The renewed Scandic Julia will make an excellent addition to our offerings in Turku, where we already operate Scandic Plaza with 117 rooms, opened in 2000, says Aarne Hallama, Vice President of Scandic Finland.
During the renovation, Scandics guests in Turku will be served by Scandic Plaza.
