Matteo Thun to design three new Intercity hotels

The IntercityHotel Hamburg-Barmbek is set to be completed by 2018.

Three new hotels will be joining the portfolio of Deutsche Hospitality’s subsidiary IntercityHotel in Hamburg-Barmbek, Dortmund and Hildesheim, Germany. These latest additions are scheduled to open in 2018 and 2019.

The owner and contractual partner will be the Hamburg-based B&L Group. Italian architect Matteo Thun is helming the design of the properties, all of which will have a restaurant, bar and conference area.

The IntercityHotel Hamburg-Barmbek, which will be developed by the B&L Group in conjunction with “Development Partner” in Düsseldorf, is set to be completed by 2018. It will be located close to the station of the same name and will have 209 rooms. This will be the fourth IntercityHotel-branded property in Hamburg.
