At some point over the last couple of months, the Hotel Reichshof in Hamburg has left Hilton’s Curio Collection.
I reviewed Hotel Reichshof shortly after it opened in 2015. It was a bit of a disaster, although both my wife and I did subsequent trips there without any problems. The location was convenient, directly outside the main railway station, but it was possibly too posh for what is a slightly scruffy corner.
The hotel had been converted, at huge expense, from a Maritim hotel with all of the original art deco features restored. It was quirky but beautiful.
The hotel is now operating independently as you can see here. The new website isn’t terribly impressive and I suspect it will end up back inside a major chain sooner rather than later.
Hilton is still represented in Hamburg by a Hampton property in the city centre.
