Meliá Hotels International Group's brand Innside by Meliá added Innside Hamburg Hafen to its portfolio of global properties in the Hammerbrook district. Near the Hafencity quarter and with a pier on the Mittelkanal channel, the hotel is close to the city center and the Speicherstadt district.
The six-floor, 207-room Innside Hamburg Hafen is in MHI's second-largest European market. The hotel was developed by U.S.-based W.P. Carey, Ten Brinke Hospitality and Ten Brinke Industrie-und Gewerbebau, and was designed by Alvaro Sans Arquitectura Hotelera.
"We've been looking for a suitable location for a long time in Hamburg, and still see a lot of market potential here–also for other brands run by our company," Kai Lamlé, MD Germany of Meliá Hotels International, said in a statement.
Meliá, which owns the Innside by Meliá brand, operates 14 of their 27 German hotels under the Innside by Meliá brand. The Innside by Meliá brand was originally developed in Germany and has been part of Meliá Hotels International since 2007. Innside is one of Meliá Hotels International's fastest growing brands, with key new openings in Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
