A major theme this year was ‘Local Heroes’, small innovative and personally managed hotels that are great sources of inspiration and innovation for the entire sector, and which put the focus on people. So it was that a delighted and proud Folke Sievers, General Manager, Reichshof Hamburg CURIO Collection by Hilton, was presented with the coveted ‘Hotel Property of the Year’ 2016.
The ’Reichshof’ combines tradition and modernity with all expectations on the fine art of hospitality. Andreas Martin, CEO of hotelforum management GmbH: “The revitalisation of this protected, traditional grand hotel, which was built opposite Hamburg’s main railway station in art-déco style and opened in 1910, has not only produced an excellent overall result but also contributed to a positive development of the location from an urban-development point of view.”
The ‘new’ Reichshof has six courtyards and 72 different types of room. The interior and furnishings of ‘Slowman’ restaurant are in the style of a cruise liner of the early 20th century while the ‘Bar 1910’ is made up to 90 percent of protected art-déco elements. JOI-Design, Hamburg, was responsible for remodelling of the interior architecture.
