Interviewing General Manager Nina Quitmann of the new 25hours Hotel Hamburg Altes Hafenamt | By Phil Butler

Phil Butler: It’s clear the guests of Hotel Altes Hafeamt will experience something unique, but what about the NENI Restaurant & The Boilerman Bar? What make Restaurant an Bar so special?

Nina Quitmann: As is so often the case with 25hours, the Altes Hafenamt closely interacts with its location. This also includes joining with strong local & international partners to create a meeting place for locals and travellers alike. To be able to breathe new life into the oldest building in the HafenCity is fantastic and will add even more variety to the heart of the Ueberseequartier.

We are also serving exciting culinary delights from early morning to late in the night: The NENI Restaurant seats 80 and serves up the eclectic cuisine of Haya Molcho: a culinary mosaic of Persian, Russian, Arabic, Moroccan, Israeli, Turkish, Spanish, German and Austrian influences. It lives from the shared experience and enjoyment of the dishes. Something that is very easy to do in the most beautiful places in the restaurant, on the terrace or in the idyllic inner courtyard.

We admire the Molcho family as a powerful creative force in Vienna’s gastronomic scene. We enjoy a very successful partnership between the Zurich and Berlin houses and we are delighted that this culinary liaison is now extending to Hamburg. NENI fits perfectly into the history of the Altes Hafenamt, because Haya Molcho weds homeland and wanderlust into a joyful culinary experience.

And before or after visiting the restaurant our guests are strolling through the hall – past the wonderful nautical charts – take them to the Boilerman Bar.

A stage for convivial meetings and alcoves for relaxing moments with good drinks. A small, fine and unusual place with a casual character. By partnering with Joerg Meyer and Rainer Wendt we were able to establish a type of bar concept that is unique within the HafenCity. A quality neighbourhood bar where you can enjoy a precision-mixed highball in a relaxed atmosphere.
