Hotel Property Award 2015

The award „Hotel property of the year 2015“ goes to Hotel Zoo Berlin this year. The winner was announced as part of the gala evening of hotelforum 2015 on 7 October. 

Andreas Martin, hotelforum jury-chairman: „Hotel Zoo Berlin convinced the jury, because it has found its niche within the saturated hotel market of Berlin, and the aging hotel has been renovated by its new owners. Underperforming gastronomy outlets were turned into high-class retail areas and the newly positioned hotel now matches up to the current developments at its location, Kurfürstendamm”.

The Hotel Zoo Berlin is the result of the revitalisation of a 1892 built monument at the Kurfürstendamm which was classified as a VIP-hotel in the 1950s, especially during the film festival Berlinale. Unusual architectonic combinations show the passion for detail and courage to design, such as the seven metre high door of the lobby, the brick wall coated in gold leaf or the stucco ceiling with coeval street art and exposed tubes.

The creativity of the concept, centred on the topic „creating personal atmosphere for personalities“, is made clear through an expressive sense of space in the lobby and is also reflected in the individually designed rooms or the elevator, in which cameras are flashing during the ride – a homage of the designer Dayna Lee to the former film festivals. By using different architectonic stylistic elements, a harmonic bridge between historicism and modernity was created.
