Deutsche Hospitality opens the IntercityHotel Hannover Hauptbahnhof Ost
220 rooms across 14 floors at the heart of the capital of Lower Saxony
Another new generation IntercityHotel has joined the Deutsche Hospitality portfolio. The four-star IntercityHotel Hannover Hauptbahnhof Ost opened its doors for business on 10 February to become the second hotel in the city to operate under the brand. It houses 220 guest rooms spread over 14 storeys as well as offering a restaurant, a Bistro Lounge and five conference rooms. Interior design once again bears the characteristic signature of the Italian architect Matteo Thun. The IntercityHotel Hannover Hauptbahnhof Ost is positioned in the upper midscale segment. Its central location on the eastern side of Hanover’s main railway station provides excellent transport links. There is also a public car park within the immediate vicinity, from which the hotel can be accessed directly.
“We are delighted to be able to welcome the first guests to this new location at the heart of the international trade fair centre of Hanover,” said Joachim Marusczyk, founding Managing Director of IntercityHotel GmbH. “We would like to thank our partners and all other parties involved for enabling us to complete work on such an impressive structure and to write another chapter in the success story of IntercityHotel.” The pentagonally shaped building features a façade clad in coloured glazed clay elements and a partial glass frontage. It is operated via a lease agreement. The contractual partner in this case is the property company bauwo Grundstücksgesellschaft mbH.
Thomas Nixdorf, General Manager of the hotel near the train station Hanover, added: “The hotel’s central location mean that unique panoramas of the city can be enjoyed from the upper storeys. Numerous shops and restaurants and Hanover’s historic old quarter are with easy walking distance. Our guests can also use the FreeCityTicket scheme to travel on local public transport free of charge.”
More than 40 other IntercityHotels can be found at major transport hubs in cities both in Germany and abroad. They offer modern conference facilities and accommodation. Many digital services are also available via a special IntercityHotel App.
