Safety Measures Regarding Corona (COVID-19)

Safety Measures at Hotel Skansen

Last Updated 2021-03-31

Hotel Skansen follows the Swedish Public Health Authorities’ (Folkhälsomyndigheten) guidelines, such as:

  • Allocate sitting hours in the restaurants for all meals
  • Restrict the access to pool and spa
  • Encourage good hand hygiene, maintain social distance and being personally accountable

Here you can read more about our safety measures and precautions around the hotel, and what you can do during your stay with us.

Throughout the hotel:

  • All staff maintain good hand hygiene and we encourage guests to do the same.
  • We have hand-sanitation stations in all common areas throughout the hotel.
  • We do not shake hands when greeting.
  • Our housekeeping staff is extra focused on cleaning and disinfecting all surfaces including high-touch surfaces such as doorknobs and elevator buttons.

At the reception area:

  • We maintain social distance, even during busy hours. Sit down in a lounge chair in one of the hotel’s common areas whilst ONE guest in your party checks in.
  • We remind all guests to maintain physical distance from each other. We use floor markings to provide clear indications.
  • On the departure day, please settle your bill at the reception on your way to or from breakfast to avoid any queues during check-out. Once you have paid your bill, you can leave your room key at the express check-out when you leave your room.

At the spa and cold bath house:

  • It is often a good idea to plan your visit for early mornings (approx. 7–8 AM), around lunch (approx. 11 AM–2 PM) or late evening (last hour), as it is usually less crowded during these times.
  • We can only accept a limited number of people at a time at the Spa and Cold Bath House. Waiting times may occur.
  • Rooftop Spa is open until 23 pm. All food and beverage service ends 20 pm, due to current government restrictions.

In the restaurant:

  • The restaurant is furnished so that we can guarantee the right distance between different parties. The premises are regularly inspected by the local environmental and health authorities.
  • Breakfast is served during set hours. You will receive your time slot upon check-in.
  • Instead of lunch and dinner buffets, you will be served at your table. We also have the option of a breakfast platter, instead of a breakfast buffet.
  • We have a limited number of guests in the restaurant at any given time.
  • Only table service or take-out is available.
  • Kitchen staff comply with hygiene requirements and maintain good hygiene practices, as per usual.
  • According to current restrictions on serving alcohol, no alcohol is served after 8.00 PM and the restaurant closes at 8.30 PM.
  • According to Swedish Public Health Authorities’ restrictions, only 4 guests are allowed at one table. Larger parties are seated at several tables, at least one meter apart between tables.

In case of illness:

  • Our employees do not come to work if they have any symptoms.
  • If a guest should prove to be sick at the hotel, we have developed an action plan in consultation with the hotel physician.
    We hope you will feel safe here, knowing that we are doing everything we can for your safety.

General Gatherings – What Applies?

The Government’s decision to limit public gatherings and public events  does not cover hotels and restaurants.

Closed meetings and conferences arranged by companies or organizations, do not count as general gatherings and are therefore not covered by government restrictions.
