IHG Hotels & Resorts has entered into a franchise agreement with Mogotel and development partner Revelop, to mark IHG’s re-entry into Sweden with voco Stockholm Kista. This latest signing signifies IHG’s strong owner relationships and its commitment to growth in new and emerging markets such as Sweden, drawing on its scale of more than 780 open hotels across Europe.
“We have seen significant growth momentum with our voco hotels brand since it launched in 2018 and this signing reinforces that we are on our way to reaching the brand’s global ambition of 200 properties in leading urban and leisure locations by 2028. The brand commands top guest satisfaction scores thanks to its individual charm and character, and its conversion-friendly design and operational framework allows owners to bring their unique visions to its properties.
This milestone signing would not have been possible without our real estate partner Revelop as well as operating partner Mogotel – with whom this is another hotel signing with in recent months, following the announcement of Holiday Inn & Suites Budapest Centrale. We look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with both partners as we explore new opportunities in the Nordics ” Willemijn Geels, VP Development, Europe, IHG Hotels & Resorts
voco Stockholm Kista will be strategically located in the northern region of Stockholm, in Kista, dubbed as Sweden’s Silicon Valley – home to the largest Information and Communications Technology (ICT) cluster in Europe. The hotel will be situated adjacent to the Nordic Forum – one of Kista’s largest office redevelopments as well as telecoms company Ericssons Global Headquarters – making voco Stockholm Kista, with its five personalised meeting and events space options, the ideal location for business travellers.
The 201-room property will be complete in late 2024, with a restaurant and lobby bar where guests can come together to recharge, connect, work or celebrate. voco Stockholm Kista will also have a well-equipped fitness room and a tranquil rooftop spa with an indoor swimming pool, as well as a stunning rooftop garden, providing guests with exceptional views of northern Stockholm to help them unwind and relax.
