More rooms and cooler interiors on the hip volcano.
The urban hotel near Grünerløkka opens a new section after renovating 1,500 square meters and expanding it with 31 rooms.
After entering into an agreement with farm owner Aspelin Ramm, the vacant adjacent buildings became part of Scandic Vulcan from 1 February this year. The building is owned by PS: Hotel until operations ceased last year. Two months after the acquisition, the expansion and breeding was completed. The hotel’s capacity has now been increased by 31 rooms, including 25 double rooms, four single rooms and two studio apartments. A total of 180 rooms and 348 beds are now available.
The hotel has a great location, and having 31 new hotel rooms in such a location is a huge strength for us going forward. Vulkan has become a separate destination in Oslo in terms of food and cultural life, and in the immediate vicinity of the hotel you can, for example, pick and choose from more than 40 restaurants, says manager Therese Fredriksson.
Since the acquisition in February, all floors and surfaces have been renovated and all interiors replaced. A new meeting room was also created, and about 1,500 square meters were renovated. With the famous Grünerløkka within walking distance, the hotel is an ideal starting point to experience what urban Oslo has to offer.
– After several years of good visits from both private and business travelers, we have chosen to expand the hotel’s capacity. Scandic Vulcan is a gem with a very interesting location, and as a result of the latest upgrades, the attraction will only increase, says District Manager Magny Jacobsen.
In addition to the new and updated facilities, guests and visitors will soon have the opportunity to enjoy traditional Italian cuisine at the popular Ferro Restaurant, which is reopening this summer.
