The Hovi story
Our values are humanity, being local, being ecological and family.
The story of Raahen Hovi began in 1998 when the hotel was established to offer restaurant, accommodation and conferencing services in the Raahe area. The 20th anniversary was celebrated in November 2018 in the wonderful, recently refurbished Brahe function room.
Hotel Raahen Hovi was originally established by Mr Hans Wohlrab, who had a long and successful career inthe hotel business. When he retired, the new manager was found close by: the hotel was to be headed by his wife’s son, Mr Kari Haataja. This further crystallised the idea of a family business in the hotel. Kari has headed Hotel Raahen Hovi through a number of changes since the 2010s: the hotel has been expanded acouple of times to meet the increasing demand. Despite the increasing number of visitors, Hotel Raahen Hovi has been able to retain its warm, homelike atmosphere. The hotel now accommodates visitors in threeblocks, which have been given the royal names of Herttua, Paroni and Ritari.
