  • The renewed Original Sokos Hotel Royal Vaasa is about to dazzle guests with its fresh new look. The hotel underwent a complete transformation, and in February 2024, the fully renovated tower building opened its doors.

    The hotel’s design is both timeless and contemporary: one of the biggest interior trends in 2024 is the abundant use of colors. In the hotel rooms, the sun-kissed, joyful spirit draws inspiration from the colors of the sunlight spectrum, including bright yellow and blue. Hotel Royal Vaasa evokes memories of Alvar Aalto’s Paimio Sanatorium, with a bright yet serene and calming ambiance throughout.
