25hours Hotel Terminus Nord: A Cosmopolitan Approach to Hospitality

AXOR Fixtures Grace the Parisian Location of the German Hotel Brand
Schiltach, October 2019. The 25hours Hotel Terminus Nord is a love letter to cosmopolitanism. Situated beside Europe’s busiest train station, the hotel reflects its urban setting even as it offers a retreat from it. The reception desk is reminiscent of a French kiosk. The restaurant serves a modern Mediterranean-Israeli cuisine. The cocktail bar, Sape, is inspired by the extravagant fashions of Congolese dandies known as Sapeurs. And the interiors showcase provocative wall murals with Asian and African influences. Within this contemporary nexus of culture, AXOR Citterio E is a natural fit.

A collection characterized by opposites, AXOR Citterio E balances the round with the angular, the traditional with the modern, to create a beauty all its own. And at the 25hours Hotel Terminus Nord, most fixtures are finished in a brushed bronze that is perfectly keeping with the spirit and style of the decor. Due to its scratch resistance and lasting surface shine, AXOR Citerrio E is exceptionally durable, making it ideal for the demands of this popular hotel. “25hours takes a cosmopolitan approach to good quality. A rich mix of cultural influences is combined with the highest quality furnishings, which is why we chose AXOR for the bathrooms,” Henning Weiss, Chief Product Officer 25hours Hotels, explains.

Combining Parisian flare, dizzying color and gracious hospitality, 25hours Hotel Terminus Nord dazzles its guests with a visual style that can’t be found anywhere else. The Citroën Acadiane in the lounge, the vintage motorcycle in the reception and the colorful mannequins in the bedrooms attest this eclectic, humorous, sometimes surreal approach. The result is a striking aesthetic experience that is sure to remain with guests long after they’ve experienced the hotel and explored its vibrant surroundings.
