This hotel is part of a complex in a quiet area just outside the centre of the city. When you pull up it certainly has the wow factor! Out the front there is a dining and drinking area connected to the restaurant. We were greeted by a young and really nice guy on reception. The entrance is ultra-cool!
Our first thoughts on our room was how spacious and bright and airy it was. The furnitue was all 60's and 70's retro and kitsch in a minimal way. The beds were really comfy! The shower was really powerful. It was all spottlessly clean.
Across the landing from our room was the terrace...ahhhhhhh...the terrace! Not that we had much time to enjoy it but we did spend an hour up there relaxing after a long day the city, it was cooler up there.
The staff were really friendly and helpful, they gave us tips, maps and directions.
Breakfast was delicious and there was something for everyone, hot meats, cold meats, eggs, cheeses, pastries, bread, rolls, fruit, cereals, juices, coffees, teas... you name it they had it and plenty of it too. You really got your money's worth!
It also has a living room, a bar - they make a good caipirinha and a gym.
Unique Quality: This hotel is aesthetically fun, it's hip and modern but it doesn't just look great, the service is good and I don't have a bad word to say about it!
Actually the only thing I'd change would be to move it closer to the centre a tiny bit! It was really easy to get in on the S-Bahn but late at night we had to get taxi's. Don't let that stop you staying here though!
Nearest S-Bahn is Bahrenfeld.
Service is pretty good here, with a small front desk in the lobby where you will probably get to know the staff personnel by name during your stay. Lobby decor is modern and the decor very hot pink, very 60's pop, and might remind you in some cases of scenes from Stanley Krubrick's film "2001 Space Odyssey", while the rooms themselves also add a little bit of Scandanavian/"50's style" decor into the mix...
Unique Quality: As of this update, Hotel 25 Hour's Sushi Factory restaurant has been closed in favor of opening up a more continental retaurant for lunch and dinner. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the restaurant is still used in the morning hours to serve a breakfast buffet for hotel guests, but be sure to check with the hotel reception. Like the Gastwerk Hotel across the way, 25 Hours will remind US domestic travelers of the more hipster variety of Ian Schrager or Steve Rubell hotels in New York and Miami Beach. It also feautures a minimalist style "living room" with large flat screen tv, plus two "event" rooms that look like trendy cocktail bars known as Freiraum I and II. The building itself is located a hundred feet or so from the neighboring Gastwerk Hotel, behind which one can find a small Italian wine and food shop, and the more casual neighborhood restaurant haunt "Scotty's Bar". Room prices are per night rather than per person, and the hotel houses a tiny workout room with treadmills. For guests that need a more vigorous workout, Hotel 25 Hours offers discounted day cards to the neighboring upscale spa/gym, ELIXIA located next to the GASTWERK.
