In the 1950s Hagahuset building, we’re working with Kom Hotel, which is owned by KFUM Central, to create a hotel and long-stay accommodation with an Italian feel. Hotel Gió is scheduled to open in the spring, with its fantastic location just minutes from Hagaparken and buses to Arlanda Airport stopping right on the doorstep.

The Social Hub
Hagahuset at Råsundavägen 1–3 in Solna opened in 1957. The building was originally inspired by architect and designer Giò Ponti’s contemporary Pirelli tower in Milan from the 1950s.
The new hotel, with its 180 rooms, including 50 extra spacious rooms adapted for extended stays, now taking shape in the building continues to draw inspiration from the Italian theme. Having teemed with office workers for over 60 years, the characteristic 1950s staircases, artworks and doors will now be welcoming Hotel Giò’s guests instead.
Hotel Gió will be a forum for anyone looking to stay and dine, socialise and work in an inviting and relaxed setting with an affectionate disposition. You’ll be able to book a short or long stay here, dine at Mama Giò, enjoy a drink in the outdoor bar or work in the lounge.
"At Giò you’ll be coming home to a big family, a diverse bunch who are genuinely interested in their guests. The spacious lounge offers every opportunity for work, spending time with friends, arranging a get-together or enjoying cosy live performances. That’s why we call Giò ‘the social hub hotel.”

Giò’s concept, design and interior have been developed by one of Sweden’s leading interior design concept agencies – Spik studios in Gothenburg. Over the past few years they have developed concepts and designs for places such as Steam Hotel in Västerås, MJ’s in Malmö and Gothenburg’s Hotel Pigalle.
