AS Merko Ehitus : The Nordic Hotel Forum opens to visitors in August

07/27/2021 EDT
The Nordic Hotel Forum opens to visitors in August

Nordic Hotel Forum, a four-star hotel in the city centre of Tallinn, has made an investment in the amount of 12.5 million euros. Kapitel, the owner of the building and Nordic Hotels, the operator of the hotel commissioned Merko to renovate the entire building and make it the most corona-proof hotel in the country.

According to Nordic Hotel Forum General Manager Feliks Mägus, the whole house was completely refurbished, and various virus control and contactless solutions were developed and installed during the year. 'We expect family tourism to recover faster than business travel, and therefore we have rebuilt some of the rooms to be more spacious and better adapted for families. Probably there will be less flying over the longer term as well and more business and pleasure will be combined - to meet such demand we have made many rooms suitable for longer stays,' Mägus said and explained that keeping those trends in mind the general concept of the hotel was partly modified as well.

Taavi Ojala, Chairman of the Management Board of the real estate company Kapitel, that owns the hotel building, said that the reopening of Nordic Hotel Forum was one of the largest investments in the sector after the pandemic broke out last spring. 'Although the hotel is situated in a prime location in Tallinn, the past year was by no means an easy one. We decided to use the interim time for investing in the hotel to add to its excellence and be ready for receiving guests again, even if the situation with regard to the pandemic and tourism continues to be very difficult,' Ojala added.

According to Feliks Mägus, the ventilation and other technical systems of the hotel were entirely rebuilt, so as to meet the requirements of the post-virus world. 'Nordic Hotel Forum is the first hotel in Estonia to have virus control equipment installed all across the building. For example, the conference centre has been equipped with mobile virus control devices produced by the Finnish firm Genano, which removes nano particles, bacteria, and viruses from the air. As an additional safety measure, we are offering the hotel and conference center visitors wearable air purifiers Respiray, developed in Estonia. They use UV technology to purify 99% of the air to be breathed in and direct the purified air in the direction of the mouth and nose of the wearer,' Mägus added.

The General Manager explained that during the renovation process modern contactless solutions were also introduced. 'For example, contactless registration upon arrival, opening the doors of hotel rooms with a smart device, payments without having to contact the staff; for the latter we are using a digital system created in Estonia,' Mägus said.

After renovation, the four-star superior business and conference hotel has 258 hotel rooms instead of the previous 267 rooms. The renovation project was designed by interior architects Kaire Kemp-Tišler and Ea Andla from the Artaku Interior Architecture firm, the builders were Merko. Furniture specially commissioned from Estonian designers was used to furnish the hotel. Enterprise Estonia was involved in funding the renovation of the hotel via its support for implementing business model's measure.

Nordic Hotel Forum has received the Green Key certificate for its environmentally friendly operations.
