Kämp Hotel 20, March 2020
Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Kämp Collection Hotels will also adapt its operations. Eight out of ten Kämp Collection Hotels will temporarily close their doors by Wednesday, 1 April 2020. Hotel Kämp, the most iconic hotel in Finland, and the neighboring GLO Hotel Kluuvi will remain open.
“Naturally, our most important goal is to ensure the health and safety of our personnel and customers, but also to ensure the continuation of our operations after the crisis. We will not give up, we intend to keep the doors of Hotel Kämp and GLO Hotel Kluuvi open for as long as possible. We believe that our industry will recover from this crisis. Once it does, we want to be ready and capable of taking action,” says Laura Tarkka, CEO, Kämp Collection Hotels.
Kämp Collection Hotels arranged cooperation negotiations on 20 March 2020. As a result of these negotiations, the personnel of the hotel chain can be laid off for a maximum of 90 days. The negotiations concerned all of the approximately 600 employees. Kämp Collection Hotels to be shut down temporarily are: GLO Hotel Airport, GLO Hotel Sello, GLO Hotel Art, Klaus K Hotel, Hotel Haven, Hotel Lilla Roberts, Hotel Fabian and Hotel St. George. The closures also concern the restaurant and other support functions of these hotels.
“Hotel Kämp has never closed its doors during its entire history. It remained open during the years of war when it served as a hospital and a base for foreign correspondents. To respect these traditions, we will keep Kämp’s doors open also during this crisis and ensure that we can offer high-quality accommodation and services for those who need to travel regardless of the situation. Kämp’s sister hotel GLO Hotel Kluuvi is located just a stone’s throw from Kämp and, therefore, it is natural that we have chosen GLO Hotel Kluuvi as the second hotel that will continue to serve our customers through the worst time,” says Laura Tarkka.
Extensive measures will be carried out at both hotels in order to ensure that personnel and customers are not exposed to the virus.
