The grand, central Hamburg hotel, operated by Event Hotelgruppe, 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.”
