From Gas Plant to Gastwerk
About 120 years ago, the old gas plant brought light to the streets and houses of Hamburg`s western districts for the first time. In the impressive and carefully restored industrial building, built with brick and steel, modern design and historical architecture form a fascinating harmonic interpretation - the Gastwerk, Hamburg's first design hotel. The brick hall of the building, flooded with light, reflects with its 6500 square feet the unique, loft-like character of the hotel, which ranks among the city’s very best hotels since its opening in 2000.
Today, we are proud to offer 141 rooms, lofts and suites, a variably-configurable conference area, our restaurant Mangold, the L.BAR, the Gastwerk SPA, 60 free parking spaces in front of the hotel and 15 parking spaces underground.
Character in Stone and Design
Charismatic design instead of clumsy decoration, and a stylish atmosphere instead of glaring cosmetics lend distinctive character to the interior of the Gastwerk. Self-determination and individuality are the creative credo of all of the international Design Hotels Group™, which operates the Gastwerk. Inspired by hotel visionary Kai Hollmann, designed and implemented by Regine Schwethelm, Sibylle von Heyden and Armin Fischer, the charming roughness of the industrial building and the elegance of contemporary design in the Gastwerk enter into a fascinating symbiosis. Every stay in the stunning hotel is a rendezvous with personality.
