Habbo Sweden was the Swedish branch of Habbo Hotel. It was opened December 16, 2003, BETA-testers were allowed to register December 9, 2003. It was closed on April 29, 2015 due to low profits and low user population.
Closure[edit | edit source]
Due to low user population, and low revenue, the Swedish hotel along with Habbo Denmark and Habbo Norway were closed on April 29, 2015. The hotel was not merged with any other hotel, and all accounts were deleted.
Compensation[edit | edit source]
According to their users, Sulake initially were not going to compensate users who are affected by the closure. This caused a huge uproar in the community, however, and it was later revealed that Sulake was going to give out compensation. Users who filed a claim were compensated with 100 Credits, one year of Habbo Club, and one year Builders Club membership.
However, many users described this compensation as inadequate due to the large amounts of money they spent on their hotel. Also, many users with large amounts of furniture did not receive any more than a user with a little bit of furniture.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The only site (together with Brazilian hotel) to get an orange-box layout to its homesite in 2006.
- The Hotel office was moved from Stockholm to Copenhagen in 2007, and all the staff in the former Swedish office were fired and new Swedish staff in Copenhagen were hired.
- First hotel to get the new layout on the website, as of April 2012.
- The hotel view is based on the nature which can be found in Sweden, the hotel view is a bit similar to Habbo Canada with a forest theme.
- BozzaNova (former hotel manager in Habbo Sweden), released the Lovely White Bunny for -1 Credits on February 1, 2008. This meant when you bought it, you were given a free Credit plus the bunny. Seeing an opportunity, this was repeated by Habbo’s a large amount of times. It’s quite an impressive mistake considering the short amount of time she was hotel manager. People were allowed to keep what they gained, however, and BozzaNova was fired as staff four days later.
- In 2011 and 2012 many of the Swedish staff were fired due to low revenue in Sulake overall. The active staff NordicLight and Duzz were fired and .se started fresh with secret staff, however the secret staff were later found out by users.
