Name: Reichshof Hamburg
Reichshof Hamburg is the first Curio Collection Hotel by Hilton to launch in Europe. Curio – A Collection is Hilton’s new unique luxury hotel brand that picks hotels with unique character and aims to give you a special stay with incredible service. At Curio, you can apparently expect a stay that is as innovative as it is intriguing.
The grand central Hamburg hotel, is the brand’s first hotel in Europe and combines Hanseatic Art-Déco elegance with contemporary design and offers travellers local discoveries and authentic travel experiences at the core of the Curio brand.
“The uniqueness and special character of Reichshof Hamburg is a great example of what we seek when hand-picking respected and distinguished hotels for our Curio collection,” said Dianna Vaughan, global head, Curio – A Collection by Hilton. “The restored hotel is a favourite among travellers because it beautifully blends the old with the new and captures Hamburg’s vibrant energy, while also offering our guests the reassurance and benefits that come with the Hilton name and HHonors loyalty program.”
“Europe has a wealth of exceptional upscale and luxury independent hotels, appealing to guests seeking more unique travel experiences,” said Simon Vincent, president EMEA, Hilton Worldwide. “The Reichshof Hamburg, Hilton Worldwide’s newest Curio collection hotel, offers guests the best of both worlds – a hotel that encapsulates the true essence of Hamburg with the advantages of being affiliated with Hilton Worldwide.”
Located opposite the historic Hamburg Central Railway Station, Reichshof fuses impressive architecture and modern furnishings with personalised hospitality. The hotel’s 278 renovated guest rooms, as well as junior and one bedroom suites, offer guests a relaxing haven in lively central Hamburg. The hotel also boasts a 250 metre recreation and fitness facility, where guests can access the fully equipped gym or indulge in luxurious spa treatments.
“The Reichshof’s 20th century charm was meticulously preserved during the hotel’s extensive renovation by leading artisans,” said Folke Sievers, general manager, Reichshof Hamburg. “Modern technology and amenities have been seamlessly blended during the restoration to ensure guests enjoy both the hotel’s historic character and contemporary comforts. We are delighted to return the hotel to its ‘Roaring Twenties’ prime and as a Curio – A Collection by Hilton hotel, look forward to sharing it with an extended reach of guests.”
Renowned local gastronomist Frank Bertram joins the Reichshof as chef de cuisine, moving his restaurant slowman to the hotel. The hotel offers guests and locals a variety of dining options including an à la carte menu in the hotel’s dining room, handmade sushi and delicious cakes in the lobby, and the best club sandwich in Hamburg at the hotel’s legendary bar. Bertram is famed for his dedication to high-quality products, passion, and his love of music, with his legendary slowman Saturday jam sessions popular with a large and dedicated fan base. The Reichshof’s Bar 1910 features high-quality spirits, including a collection of premium Whiskeys from across the world, innovative cocktails and newly interpreted classics.
I look forward to trying this hotel next time I am in Hamburg. Being just up the street from the Park Hyatt Hamburg, it will be interesting to do a comparison between the two hotels. The Spa fireside relaxation room at the Reichshof certainly looks most inviting (pictured above!).
Reichshof Hamburg is located at Kirchenallee 34-36, 20099 Hamburg.
