Villa Maija is an old charismatic villa from the 19th century situated in Hanko, the southernmost city of Finland. The villa was originally built as a private summer residence, but nowadays it functions as a hotel for eight months of the year.

With sixteen rooms, some of which are larger apartment-type suites, Villa Maija is the perfect hotel for summer vacations. It's also a popular place for smaller company events, such as workshops and seminars. Despite the old look, Villa Maija is equipped with modern equipment, such as air conditioning and a 100M fiber optic connection and fast wi-fi on the property.

Our family business C&E Rosenberg Ltd, where I'm CEO and co-owner, acquired Villa Maija and the existing hotel business in 2013. Since then we've done a lot of development on the property and with the business, but there's still a lot of interesting things to be done.

Hanko is my favourite place in Finland, alongside Helsinki. The beaches are incredible and there's a unique atmosphere thanks to the old villas and summer houses. It's the summer city number one in Finland, though I'm of course very biased in this matter.

Please pay us a visit if you're in Finland, and if you come to Hanko – you must! During the summer months of June - August there's a high probability that you'll find me working in the reception.   

The hotel website is and we have just launched a totally new website. The new site supports multiple languages and you can make bookings in real time. We also have an active Facebook page and on TripAdvisor we've received the award "2017 Travelers' Choice".
