Reichshof Hamburg Opens as First Curio in Europe

HAMBURG, Germany and MCLEAN, Va.—Hilton Worldwide today opened the Reichshof Hamburg hotel, adding another hotel to Curio – A Collection by Hilton. The central Hamburg hotel, operated by Event Hotelgruppe, is the brand’s first hotel in Europe and combines Hanseatic Art-Déco elegance with contemporary design.

“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. “The restored hotel is a favorite among travelers 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.”

Located opposite the historic Hamburg Central Railway Station, Reichshof fuses impressive architecture and modern furnishings with personalized hospitality. The hotel offers 278 renovated guestrooms, as well as junior and one bedroom suites. The hotel also boasts a 250 meter recreation and fitness facility.

“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.”

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 cakes in the lobby, and the best club sandwich in Hamburg at the hotel’s legendary bar. 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.
