"As a small-sized hotel-chain we like to work together with hcb in several projects. The experts of hcb have not only a look on deadlines and skills, but also function as an ideal interface between us as an operator and the building owner." Christoph Hoffmann, Managing Partner 25hours Hotel Company Holding

Case:

„Live differently!“ is the motto of „Bikini Berlin”, a project that centers on joie de vivre, intelligent consumption, prosperity without a bad conscience, and sustainable growth. The starting signal was given in October 2009, when the urban development contract between the Bayrische Hausbau and Berlin district Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf was signed. The aim was to remodel the heritage-protected “Zoobogen”, which consists of the “Bikini house” across the street from the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the high rise at the corner of Hardenbergplatz, the Berlinale-famous cinema “Zoo Palast”, the little high rise, and the parking garage.

Since the beginning of 2014 the “Bikini Berlin” offers an urban shopping mall with gastronomic facilities, a cinema and stylish offices; it is also home of the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin.
The 7,000 sqm hotel (net square footage) follows the interior design concept “urban jungle” by studio aisslinger, and offers 149 extraordinary rooms and suites. While on the zoo-side the rooms are fully glazed and offer a fantastic view over the extensive Tiergarten, the rooms on the other side present a “city life” feeling. The guest enters the hotel via an impressive roof landscape situated above the bikini mall. A bakery with approximately 25 inside and terrace seats and a multifunctional working and event zone are placed on the same level. An attractive area for wellbeing can be found on the ninth floor. On the tenth floor a restaurant and a roof top bar with an outstanding 360° view are welcoming Berlin-guests as well as "Berliner" likewise.

In various projects hcb hospitality competence berlin supported the 25hours Hotel Company with hotel specific project management tasks (technical assistance) as an interface between hotel operator and investor. During this project, hcb especially assisted in the coordination and optimization of the planning and implementation, in the controlling of the budget for the finishing works by the investor, and in the organization of the FF&E/SOE-finishing by the operator.
