Welcome to the personal and familyowned Hotel Concordia in the centre of Lund!
The hotel offers high hotel comfort in a quiet area in the 1000 year old & very charming part of the city of Lund. The hotel was established in 1982 in this unique cultural building from 1882, by the current owners.
The hotel was completely renovated in 2000 and som parts improved in 2007. In 2017 a major renovation were completed in 20 guest rooms. Every year we renew and improve the quality wherever it´s needed. As our guest you will stay comfortably in a modern, centrally located cultural building, originally built in 1882. We are an independet hotel (no chain) and a member of the Swedish Hotel and Restaurant Association, Visita.
At a contemporary hotel, overnight guests do more than just sleep and eat. And the guests are more than mere customers. This was the thinking when The Grand opened in 1899, and that is still our thinking today. The Grand is a hotel with a soul. It’s in the walls, the floors, the ceilings and it is always preserved throughout all of the renovations that the building has undergone. It’s also in the aroma of delicious food, the clinking of glasses, the buzz of conversation…
Alfred Hellerström was the architect behind The Grand. He gave the hotel its characteristic lines, reminiscent of a French Renaissance chateau. The interiors – particularly the lobby, the marble staircase and the Ballroom – have much of the flavour of Art Nouveau.
A long list of well-known hoteliers have run The Grand Hotel over the years, with names such as Gunnar Ek, Sven Holger Fogelklou and Frank Svensson. From 1980 to 1990 it was managed by the brothers Leif and Urban Paulsson, and from 1990 to 2005 by Leif Paulsson together with his wife Ann-Christin. Their daughter Maria Paulsson Rickle is now the CEO of the family company, which also runs the other Lund hotels – Lundia and Finn.
Since April 2005 the reins have been passed over to their daughter Maria Paulsson Rickle, who is now the CEO for the family-owned company that also manages Hotel Lundia and Hotel Finn in Lund.
