The 25 Hours Hotel: ‘cool place’ with kids – that´s possible!

The new 25 Hours Hotel is located in the heart of Hamburg’s new „Hafencity“ at the port. This unique family-friendly hotel has cool cabins with maritime charm, a tattoo wallpaper and a container sauna: There is no hipper place than 25hours Hafencity to spend the night along the Elbe as a family...

25Hours Hotel Hamburg Hafencity – Nordic Cool and Super Child-friendly

At the entrance buoys dangle from the ceiling, in the restaurant you sit on stacks of carpets and in the foyer you will find a Hapag-Lloyd container refurbished in retro style as a separate dining area. So, where are you? In a cargo compartment or in a hotel lobby? Whoever enters the hotel for the first time is awe struck by so much originality. Nautical, industrial chic with lots of humor! Vintage pieces and the relaxed atmosphere makes you feel as if you are staying in a cool sharing community. No “Sir” or “Madam” at check-in and the kids gets sweets they will love as a welcome present: lollipops in a seashell.

The Atmosphere is Relaxed while the Guests are „Chillin Together“

Experienced hotelier, Kai Hollmann, created this showpiece in Hamburg’s new City district. Behind a simple brick façade you will find this funny, family-friendly theme hotel. In the 170 „guest cabins”- some with bunk beds –  25 real or fictitious seamen have left their marks. Their stories can be found in the log books in each room. And an award winning wallpaper with sailor tattoo illustrations decorates the rooms. The laid-back living room lounge has a football table and corner sofas for “chillin”. Here, the children will find a box with toys. Or they go outside to a small playground while their parents drink a Caffè Latte watching them from inside. The whole house is designed to stimulate conversation amongst the guests.

Children are Allowed to Scoot around on Bobby Cars in the Restaurant

The atmosphere is Hamburg-ish relaxed. Children will not be dismissed to the playroom. They are welcome everywhere. Scooting around on bobby cars and scooters is ok throughout the floors and even in the restaurant. Oh, and the highlight you will find on the roof: The harbor sauna in a container overlooking the cruise terminal. Disembarking from this hotel will be hard…

Hamburg – the gateway to the world. Where to start? With 1.8 million inhabitants Hamburg is the second biggest city in Germany (after the capital Berlin). It has more than 2.500 bridges – more than Venice, Amsterdam und London together and it is a very green city. From the district crazy nightlife on „the Reeperbahn“ to the noble quarter Blankenese – Hamburg has it all. From wild to snobby. And also from a cultural point of view Hamburg has a whole lot to offer. And this is not only true since the opening of the famous Elphilharmonie in January 2017. And the kids? They will have a blast, too, as there are even sandy beaches in the city, super exiting museums, great playgrounds and water and ships everywhere.

Here you would find a nice text if there was a skiing area nearby. If there is none, the symbol just doesn´t appear.
The hipp cafe "Strandperle" at the sandy Elbe-river beach in Övelgönne can be reached by foot or by ship (Line 62 from "Landungsbrücken"). Furhtermore, the Baltic and the Northern Sea are not far. The most famous beaches you will find in St. Peter Ording - two hours by car - or Timmendorf (without traffic jam one hour).
Public transportation is excellent in Hamburg. The subway station "Überseequartier" is right in front of the hotel. So, city strolling is also easy without a car.
Here you would find a nice text if there was a tennis court nearby.
Here you would find a nice text if there was a golf court nearby.
Here you would find a nice text if there was a pond or river for fishing nearby.
Here you would find a nice text if there were surfing, scuba diving or snorkeling spots and/or schools nearby.
Hamburg becomes more and more a city for cyclists and you can lend bikes right in the hotel. The bikes are cool "Schindelhauer" bikes - a manufactory in Berlin.
Here you would find a nice text if there was a riding stable nearby.
It takes you only 1.5 hours by car to go to the Hanseatic town Bremen and 1 hour to reach beautiful Lübeck.
On the three-masted museum´s ship „Rickmer Rickmers“, you learn how sailors worked in the old days / the exciting International Maritime Museum is just around the corner / chocolate addicts will be highly entertained in the Chocoversum where you manufacture and taste your own chocolate

Sonja „Mrs Travel“ herself wrote this recommendation

She lives in Munich with her husband and three daughters. Traveling and finding special places is her passion. She has stayed in the 25hours Hafencity many times and is totally fascinated by its originality. She says:

There are not many hip city hotels with such a child-friendly attitude in Germany! This hotel is a place for hipsters and for families at the same time. We especially loved the colorful mix of people staying here.
