A new hotel by the 25hours Hotel Company will welcome its guests at its central location close to Munich Central Station from 3 November. The grand hotel has 165 rooms in five categories. While the prestigious firm of Munich architects OSA OCHS SCHMIDHUBER ARCHITEKTEN painstakingly restored the listed building.
“We are proud to have finally arrived in Munich. Not in the chic part of town, but in the thick of things, where Munich is a little more urban, rougher and wilder – at the beating heart of the Bavarian capital,” says 25hours CEO Christoph Hoffmann. All kinds of witty hints to the royal heritage of the south-German metropolis are secreted away in the former Main Post Office and Royal Central Telegraph Station, which was constructed in 1869. Designed to attract travellers and locals alike, the public spaces on the ground floor are the nerve centre of the new 25hours Hotel The Royal Bavarian. Besides a kiosk curated in collaboration with the Schwabing concept bookstore LOST WEEKEND and the Orangery with integrated day bar, guests and visitors will also happen across works by the Munich-based artist Jan Davidoff on the ground floor.
Guests and visitors also congregate on the ground floor for a relaxed Oriental lunch and dinner, with a separate entrance on Schützenstrasse. Devoted to eastern Mediterranean cuisine, the restaurant NENI is known for the trademark eclectic cooking of Haya Molcho and her family. Hard on the heels of establishments in Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg and Zurich, the Molchos are now bringing fresh influences from all over the world to enrich the scene in the Bavarian capital. All of the dishes are homages to their love of cooking, blending a sense of home with wanderlust for an extraordinary taste experience. Hotel Director Denis Mair appreciates in particular that the lively spirit of the Molcho family is reflected so well in the character of NENI at the 25hours Hotel: ‘The restaurant is a cosy and inspiring gathering point and a venue that nurtures communication. Dining at NENI’s should always be a passionate and sociable affair.’
The BOILERMAN BAR by the visionary international barista Jörg Meyer is another meeting place for relaxed conversation. Celebrating precisely mixed highball drinks, it’s a classy neighbourhood joint on the hotel’s 1st
floor. Featuring dark oak wood parquet flooring and stylish club armchairs, the bar is also home to a library and an extensive collection of vinyl records compiled by SUPERSENSE, the Viennese analogue specialists.
The 25hours Hotel The Royal Bavarian opens 3 November on Bahnhofplatz 1 in Munich. Globetrotting guests can look forward to 165 rooms on the 1st to 4th floors: Servant’s Quarters, Stately Rooms, Royal Chambers and two spacious suites. Room prices start at €149 per night. They are all furnished to the customary 25hours standards: Exquisitely comfy beds, air conditioning, sustainable cosmetics, flat- screen TV, minibar, UE Boom Bluetooth speaker and free high-speed Wi-Fi.
