Skyscraping views, social spaces and skateboards: Hamburg unveils new hotels
New hotels – both established brands and boutique venues – are scheduled to launch in Hamburg in the second half of this year, providing even more accommodation and venue options for planners.
Florian Gerdes, Marketing Manager Conventions at Hamburg Convention Bureau, explains: “The wide variety of new properties reflects the diverse needs of planners, many of whom want to offer something fresh and creative for their delegates. This could be exploring the city by skateboard or hosting a stylish reception with lakeside views.”
This 212 room hotel located in the HafenCity harbour area boasts its own in house theatre “HAFENBÜHNE” hosting concerts, comedy and plays. The space can be hired out for product presentations, readings and private screenings. Delegates who want to explore the city on wheels can make the most of the free hire service, offering bikes, e-bikes….and even scooters and skateboards! When not travelling around Hamburg, guests can explore the whole world under one roof thanks to the hotel’s KITCHENS Restaurant & Bar offering dishes and drinks from across the globe.
The recently-opened 4-star hotel has 130 rooms, all individually designed. The smart rooftop terrace offers views over the River Elbe. The hotel has a firm focus on sustainability with an integrated energy-conscious high tech solutions throughout, such as their round-the-clock check in system.
