Haparanda Stadshotell

The 117-year-old hotel is one of the most famous turn-of-the-century hotels. Haparanda Stadshotell was the meeting place of its time. When Russia was on the other side of the border, barons and leaders of east and west used to meet in the finest environment: Haparanda Stadshotell.

An incredible crowd of characters, mixed with the million-expenditure taking place in town were all gathered at our hotel during the 4 years of the World War I. While blood was flowing all over the battlefields in Europe, the champagne and caviar and selected wines were poured at the Hotel’s non-stop feast. Revolutionaries, spies, sawmill barons and brothel madams, as well as counts and nobility, have all left their mark on hotel’s history.

The capacity of the hotel is 91 rooms/180 beds. In total, 500 restaurant seats in several dining rooms with different characters offer tasty regional delicacies. Conference facilities for 100 people and for up to 370 people within 10 minutes transfer. Centrally located and only 10 minutes walking distance from the border of Sweden and Finland.
