Scandic to take over central Aalborg hotel

Nordic chain to operate First Hotel Europa Aalborg
Nordic chain Scandic Hotels is taking over the operations of the centrally located First Hotel Europa Aalborg from June 1. The property will change its name to Scandic Aalborg City.
With 168 rooms and suites, the hotel is located in Denmark’s fourth largest city, described by Scandic as an important growth area where new businesses are being established in the region and where Aalborg Airport is expanding its links to European destinations.
“Taking over First Hotel Europa in Aalborg means that Scandic can offer an even wider choice in the Danish hotel market, which we consider to be strategic and important,” said Frank Fiskers, Scandic Hotels’ president and chief executive. “The hotel fits very well into the rest of Scandic’s portfolio since it has all the modern amenities and a classic Scandinavian design.”
Jens Mathiesen, the company’s managing director in Denmark, added: “Through the acquisition of this hotel we are strengthening our portfolio and position in Aalborg. Soon, guests will be able to choose between the familiar Scandic Aalborg, with its unique location close to natural areas, and the new Scandic Aalborg City in the centre of the city. With these two hotels, we will be able to accommodate all types of guests and meet the needs of the market.”
