Habbo.fi

Opened August 2000
Country Finland
Hotel Managers TBA
Habbo.fi (formerly HabboHotel.fi) is the Finnish version of Habbo hotel. In August 2000 the hotel was established by Sulake founders, and was the very first to open. Due to its history as the oldest community, Habbo.fi is frequently used as a pilot hotel for development projects and client updates. However, the hotel is relatively small in population compared to others, such as Habbo.es and Habbo.com (International). A large majority of Sulake's management staff work in the Finnish offices. Dee Edwards and Aapo Kyrölä teamed together to create the international game in many other countries including Habbo Hotel UK.

Many furniture ranges and features have been released on the Finnish hotel first. Most recently were Monster Plants which were initially released in Finland. The Finnish hotel is also the only hotel to have the old Beta Beds available, a relic from Hotelli Kultakala.

Habbo.ru

Opened September 2007
Closed February 2009
Country Russia
Hotel Managers Laila (2006 - Dec 2009)
Habbo.ru was the Russian version of Habbo Hotel. It first opened to the public in September 2007 and was managed by the staff member "Laila". When the hotel first opened, many users flooded the site to try and gain names with a "MOD-" prefix (this was a common glitch in newly opened hotels back then), these players were later banned for impersonating staff.

The Russian hotel was not widely known to many people and it rarely achieved any online users nor did it provide many exciting events. In fact, only 6 badges were ever created for the Russian hotel and many were not used.

Due to the unpopularity of the hotel, Sulake announced in December 2008 that the hotel would close on February 6th 2009, thus making it the second hotel ever to close.

Players who had a large amount of furniture on Habbo.ru were given voucher codes (how many they were given depended on how much furniture they had) to use on the USA hotel. After the closure of Habbo Russia, the link used send you to www.habbo.co.uk.
