In Germany, the IntercityHotel Braunschweig has finally opened, and is the first hotel operating under the brand to bear the interior design signature of Italian architect Matteo Thun, whose concept will now serve as the prototype for all forthcoming openings.
IntercityHotel Braunschweig has 174 rooms, four conference and events spaces, a restaurant, a bistro lounge and a bar. Standard rooms are 215 square feet in size, and special Business Plus and Family Rooms are also available.
The hotel’s public areas use natural materials, and has an open plan design and corners to sit in. There is also a fireplace, as well as real plants.
Overall project development was by the Hamburg-based B&L Group. The architectural firms of Reichel+Stauth from Braunschweig and php prasch buken und partner from Hamburg are responsible for the design of the hotel.
This is the fifth IntercityHotel to be developed in conjunction with the B&L Group, and further projects are already at the construction stage.
