Exceptionally sunny and warm weather combined with the plunge of the Swedish krona against major currencies is a beneficial combination for Swedish tourism. The hotel sector is growing constantly and new projects are being developed every year. Scandic is the biggest hotel operator in the Nordic region with a 16% market share, followed by Nordic Choice and Rezidor. Recently several large hotels opened in Stockholm, including Nordic Choice Hotels At Six and Scandic Downtown Camper. While Hotel At Six offers elegance with a twist and even has yoga classes on the rooftop, the new signature four-star Hotel Downtown Camper is a bit more democratic. This lifestyle hotel has 494 guest rooms ranging from smart sleep cabins to spacious suites with magnificent views over Stockholm and is located in the very heart of the city. For friends and family travelling together, the hotel offers connecting rooms with a common living and dining area.

It is ideal for business and leisure travellers and just 20 minutes’ drive from the airport. For more information and bookings, please contact Via Hansa & Borealis in Vilnius.
