What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

Hotel Sandsund, located in the verdant Herrainmäki area of Tampere, Finland, emerges as an embodiment of architectural renewal. This Art Nouveau marvel, sculpted by the legendary architect Birger Federley in 1912, stands as an emblem of times gone by. Previously the residence of the industrial elite, its contemporary transformation has been deftly orchestrated by Laura Tuomisto, Hilma Ryösä and the discerning touch of Nádor + Nádor Interior Architects. Combining Tampere’s rich cultural threads with modern allure, Sandsund offers travellers an immersive blend of history and contemporary luxury.

What are the rooms like?

Every room within Hotel Sandsund weaves a distinct narrative. Carefully curated by Nádor + Nádor Interior Architects, each space exudes its own charm, ensuring a singular experience for every guest. From rooms featuring diverse window designs to those adorned with traditional tile stoves or plush bathtubs, attention to detail is paramount. While the hotel’s interior has been extensively modernised, significant original features, such as the vintage fireplace and age-old staircase, have been lovingly retained. Essi Nádor’s design acumen ensures that the decor reverently acknowledges the building’s architectural lineage, seamlessly melding historical elements with contemporary flair.
