NH Collection, NH Hotel Group’s upper-upscale brand, has extended its reach in northern Europe with new properties in Munich and Antwerp. The NH Collection München Bavaria is the premium brand’s eighth hotel in Germany, whilst the NH Collection Antwerp Centre is the group’s first in the city and the third NH Collection property in Belgium.
One of Munich’s oldest skyscrapers is now home to the NH Collection München Bavaria, which offers unique and extraordinary views of the Germany’s third largest city and the Alps.
Previously known as the NH Deutscher Kaiser, the hotel’s new look was devised by the interior designers at Spain’s TBC Interiorismo, inspired by the city’s identity, giving way to a fusion of elegance and industrial style, with a welcoming and modern interior in which the transparent materials and candid colours form a delicate balance echoing the city itself.
