Voco Stockholm Kista

Mogotel Development Holding, in collaboration with IHG Hotels & Resorts and Revelop, is excited to announce a strategic 25-year lease for a new 9,000 square meter facility within the Nordic Forum. This partnership marks the introduction of the voco hotels brand to our collection and signifies IHG's return to the Swedish market. The upcoming hotel, set to open its doors after the summer following its completion this spring, will feature 201 luxurious rooms, comprehensive dining services, extensive conference facilities, and a spa with an indoor swimming pool, offering a premium hospitality experience in the heart of Kista.

IHG, a global hospitality leader with a portfolio exceeding 6,200 hotels and nearly one million rooms worldwide, is embarking on this venture in Kista as a step towards expanding its presence across Sweden and the Nordic region. The voco brand is distinguished by its premium guest experience that effortlessly combines the charm of an independent hotel with the reliability and quality of a globally recognized brand.

Revelop's acquisition of the Nordic Forum in 2016 marked the beginning of an extensive transformation process, turning the site into a model of sustainability and modernity. Through initiatives like energy optimization, solar panel installations, and enhancements to both indoor and outdoor spaces, the Nordic Forum has been repositioned as a vibrant, full-service property. The introduction of amenities such as spacious lounges, a gym, and the innovative C/O Workspace co-working concept has revitalized the facility, leading to a dramatic increase in occupancy from 45% to nearly full capacity. This project exemplifies our shared commitment to rejuvenating existing buildings by infusing them with new, relevant purposes.

“I am very happy that IHG have chosen Nordic Forum for their first hotel in Sweden, bringing the voco experience to Kista. The hotel will have a significant positive impact, increasing the number of visitors to Kista during all hours of the day. Through the letting we are transforming outdated office space to a modern premium hotel experience, in line with Revelop’s strategy to extend the life of existing buildings and repurposing them with new relevant content.” says Thomas Sipos, Group CEO at Revelop.

Miguel Martins, Head of Development Northern Europe at IHG, says: ”We are delighted to partner with Revelop to bring this voco hotels property to city of Kista. voco hotels is a brand that is highly popular with guests for its unique charm and character, and is equally favoured by owners due to its conversion friendly design and operational framework. It is the perfect fit for this project, and together with Revelop and Mogotel, our shared values and focus on sustainability promise for an exciting new hotel. We look forward to opening our doors and welcoming even more guests to our wonderful city.”

”Entering the Swedish market is a major step forward for Mogotel. We are thankful for our partners’ trust as we embark on this journey. Our focus is now on growth and establishing a strong presence in Stockholm and across Sweden.” says Ivans Dokicans, Chairman of the Board at Mogotel Development Holding, Head of Development.  

“This project marks a significant milestone for us,” says Sabine Krievina, Member of the board, Director of Project Management at Mogotel Development Holding. ”It’s not just a new venture in Stockholm and Sweden; it’s a new and exciting chapter in our story, as we start our cooperation with IHG Hotels & resorts. We’re thrilled about the opportunity to bring the unique character of the voco brand into this dynamic city and look forward to making our mark in the heart of Stockholm”.
