Superbude St. Georg

Superbude St. Georg

Project Description

Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany, is characterised by water and seafaring. Its maritime flair attracts people from the most diverse backgrounds – it is an multicultural urban centre, multifaceted and varied. Hamburg is called “the gate to the world” for good reason. Apart from Germany’s largest port, the city also has a lot to offer culturally to suit every taste: museums, exhibitions, musicals, theatre, concerts.

Here, in a central location just one stop away from Hamburg’s main station, lies the hotel Superbude St. Georg. The golden veneered building is an eyecatcher in the otherwise ordinary surroundings. The 74 rooms are divided across six floors, of which each has a different colour. So you can choose whether you would rather have brown, grey, pink, red, green or blue in their various shades in your room. The hotel’s innovative design ideas are out of the ordinary. The dining room chairs are made of Astra cushions with leather upholstery, vases are actually rubber hoses, there are toilet plungers as coat racks, and Euro pallets form the sofa base in the foyer.

Situated right in the centre of Hamburg, the hotel is the perfect starting point for various activities. Whether St. Pauli, Speicher-stadt, Schanzenviertel or Hagenbeck animal park, the sights are easily accessible by local transport.

With its creative combinations of unusual materials and usages, Superbude appeals to a wide range of guests: young and old, families, school classes, sports teams and businesspeople. It is for anyone who does not wish to spend a lot of money on an overnight stay, without foregoing a charming, inventive atmo-sphere. Design meets budget. The hostel offers a guaranteed “wow effect”.

In 2008 Superbude was awarded the “Best Interior Design Award” for its unusual original interior.
