Holiday Inn — Hamburg, DE

Hanseatic tradition translated into a modern design concept. The interior of the Holiday Inn Hamburg Hafencity subtly reflects the maritime character of the Speicherstadt. Original nautical elements mirror the deep blue shades of the rough sea. Oversized pictures illustrating maritime history combined with individually made wallpapers invite hotel guests to dive into the fascinating world of the Speicherstadt.


Modern furniture expresses the spirit of Hamburg. The airy lobby with an extraordinary ceiling height serves as the central hub. Upholstered furniture in strong shades of blue combined with open shelving systems double-function as room dividers. The lobby area offers the right atmosphere for every need. Whether guests want to have a drink at the bar, work quietly in the lounge area or enjoy a good meal, the lobby is the place to meet. The bright hallway in elegant beige tones leads to the guest rooms that impress with a brilliant blue color scheme. The restrained design of the patterned carpet, high wall trims and indirect lighting elements provide a comfortable home feeling. Although the design concept focuses on simplicity, the variety of colors adds a certain aura to the surfaces and creates a strong overall impression. The conference rooms are equipped with high ceilings and full length windows that provide an open and bright room atmosphere. The light yellow-orange and beige tones make the room friendly yet function-oriented.
