A Gateway to Inspiring Meetings

Housed in the tallest building in Lund, the 19 storeys high, Ideon Gateway, Elite Hotel Ideon is in many respects a new landmark for the entire Öresund region and an important addition to Medicon Valley.

At the heart of Ideon Science Park and in close proximity to some of the world’s leading life science companies, Elite Hotel Ideon offers great opportunities for visitors to mingle and make contact with new, prospective business partners throughout the entire Öresund region and not least in Medicon Valley.
A public bus line also links the hotel with the new area in Brunnshög that’s being developed, with ESS and MAX IV as well as a science village with office space and homes for 10,000 citizens. The municipality plans for a future tram line that will stop at the hotel on its way to Brunnshög.

Sustainability at the Core
Ideon Gateway is in many respects a symbol of sustainable business through its low environmental imprint, modern technology and efficient use of resources. Since 2017, the Elite Hotel Ideon is Green Key certified by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation. Achieving this certification demands that not only the building is certified in terms of building material, energy efficiency etc., but also that products used in the hotel and restaurants are eco friendly and fair-trade marked and that the hotel is managed in a sustainable way.
”In addition, we invite our guests to act in a way that entails a lower environmental imprint,” says General Manager of Elite Hotel Ideon, Nina Lund.

Four Star Business Hotel
Elite Hotel Ideon is a distinguished conference centre with generous facilities for all types of business meetings, including nine conference rooms. The hotel caters to the needs of all, including the small group of about ten people to the large international conferences gathering several hundred participants.
The hotel has two restaurants, the Italian lunch bistro Paolo’s and the full-service restaurant NorthEast, inspired by both Nordic and Asian culinary influences, open in the evenings and at business hours.
”The culinary experience is a very important aspect of a conference and we constantly improve our range by experimenting with new ideas. Most importantly is that our conference guests will remember their visit as a positive experience of Lund and the culinary experience is a very important part of that,” says Nina Lund.
Being housed in the tallest building in Lund many of the 178 air-conditioned rooms offer magnificent views over the southern part of Skåne.

Quality, Tradition and Flair
The Suites are located at the top of the building on floors 13 and 14, with great views. They have a separate living room, bedroom with 200 cm wide beds and a large bathroom with bath amenities from Missoni. The suits on floor 13 are also equipped with a rooftop terrace. ”In the Suites, we also offer capsule coffee machine, bathrobes and slippers.”
Elite hotels truly cares about their guests and Elite Hotel Ideon is no exception. There’s a programme for members that give them those great benefits that people associate with the hotel brand.
”As a member you get added values like discounts on our rooms, and vouchers in our restaurants, for instance,” comments Nina Lund who invites all their guests to fill in the digital questionnaire sent to them. ”For us, it’s very important to get that feedback and for the guest it’s a way of influencing our offer and what we deliver.”
