The location at the interface between the traditional quarter of subculture and night owls on Langstrasse and the dignified Europaallee inspired the makers of the hotel to deal with the contrasts of banks and red light, of art and capital. The team led by designer WERNER AISSLINGER developed a holistic design concept under the working title POCKET UNIVERSE.
Thus, the 25hours Hotel Langstrasse sees itself as its own small universe and offers contemporary interpreted services for the target group of urban nomads. The ground floor with lobby, kiosk, restaurant and bar is a centre of attraction for travellers and locals alike. “We want to be the living room of Langstrasse, where people come together in an analogue way,” explains 25hours CEO Christoph Hoffmann.
The Tape Lounge on the first floor offers hotel guests open spaces to talk and work. The BUSINESS STATION is equipped with iMac and printer. In the lounge area, everything revolves around analogue worlds – specially developed by the Viennese analogue specialists SUPERSENSE. Here, guests can expect casual sounds and analogue devices such as the “Polaroid pinball machine” or the “arm wrestling machine”. The premises can also be rented exclusively as part of events.
For meetings and events, the 25hours Hotel Langstrasse has an open-plan room for up to 60 people on the 1st floor, as well as breakout rooms on the ground floor and 1st floor.
On the 1st to 7th floors, 170 rooms in a total of five categories await guests. They are cosy retreats with differently inspired worlds such as “Red Light”, “Bel Etage” or “Penthouse”. Equipped with all 25hours standards that urban nomads appreciate: High-quality beds, air conditioning, sustainable cosmetics, flat-screen TV, minibar, UE Boom jukebox and free wi-fi.
At the very top on the 7th floor, the wellness area beckons. Through the windows of the trainspotting sauna, guests can enjoy a spectacular view over the track field of Zurich’s main railway station.
