Five new hotels are scheduled to open in Hamburg by the end of the year, offering a wide range of accommodation and meeting space options, as well as other attractions including guitars to rent and a roof top campsite.
Ruby Lotti is scheduled to open in the autumn in a former publishing house. The centrally located hotel has an emphasis on all things tech, offering guests their own tablet and smartphone to take with them on their travels around Hamburg as well as Ruby bikes. For the musically-minded, the hotel has its own radio station – Ruby Radio – and even offers guitars to rent for free alongside in room Marshall Amps sound systems and integrated guitar amplifier to enable guests to really ramp up their performance.
Holiday Inn opens in November in HafenCity, currently Europe’s largest inner-city development project. Alongside the 4 star hotel’s 268 rooms are meeting rooms and a business centre.
Also located in HafenCity, the upcoming waterfront business and leisure district, is Pier Drei Hotel. Guests have a choice of 212 rooms as well as a mini campsite offering city-wide views. Meeting planners can hold lectures, launches and other events in the hotel’s own “Hafenbühne” – a room with a stage (total 180 sqm) and seats for up to 100 people. Guests can also enjoy the restaurant and roof garden, where locals have been invited to plant their own herbs and vegetables!
Premier Inn Hamburg City is located within walking distance to all major attractions such as the Speicherstadt and the old town. The 182-room property is ideally situated opposite the metro station Messberg, allowing guests to quickly access the main train station and the Congress Center CCH.
Fraser Suites is scheduled to open in Hamburg’s old town in December. It will be one of only three hotels by Singapore-based Fraser Hospitality Group to open in Germany. This luxury 5 star hotel occupies the historic Oberfinanzdirektion, the former office of Hamburg’s tax authority. As one of the most famous buildings in Hamburg, the exterior and many part of the interior are heritage protected.
Florian Gerdes, Marketing Manager Conventions at Hamburg Convention Bureau, explains:
“This wide range of new hotels reflects the diverse and unique character of Hamburg – a city that’s both modern, historical…. and musical. It’s not often that a hotel lends guitars to its guests!
“This means meeting planners can be confident delegates will gain a real insight into Hamburg when staying at or attending events hosted in these new properties. The city – its hotels, venues and suppliers – all work hard to give business and leisure visitors alike many memorable moments.”
These forthcoming hotels will join other recently opened properties in the city including The Tortue, JUFA hotel, Nordport Plaza Hotel and The Fontenay. Discover more about these recent additions to Hamburg’s hotel offering here.
