HafenCity is Europe's largest development project of the 21st century, reviving and reinventing Hamburg's old harbor quarter into a hub of urban life featuring restaurants, shops, and the world-class Herzog & de Meuron-designed Elbe Philharmonic Hall. In the midst of it all, the 25hours Hotel HafenCity, the first hotel development to open in this neighborhood. The hotel draws from the area's rich maritime history in a radical re-imagining of a traditional seamen's club, complete with 170 cabin-style suites, a rooftop sauna, Heimat restaurant, bar, art gallery, private wharf, and a conference room housed in a repurposed shipping container. For Christoph Hoffmann, CEO of the 25hours Hotel Company, design is an expression of the company's philosophy. Each hotel design is inspired by its location, thus each is organically distinctive.
It is directly on Hamburg Harbour, 200 metres from the Hamburg Maritime Museum. Meßberg Underground Station is a 12-minute walk from 25hours, providing connections to all parts of the city. Guests can enjoy concerts at the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, just a 5-minute walk away. The historic Old Town district is a 15-minute walk from the 25hours Hotel.
