In early 2014 Berlin will boast yet another attraction, as the 25hours Group gets in gear to open a new hotel in the historic building ensemble Bikini Berlin vis-à-vis the Berlin Zoo. Under the direction of noted architectural firm Aisslinger, known for its work undertaken for de Sede, Foscarini or Vitra, the modern, upmarket hotel promises excellence at an entirely new level. In the style of other 25hours establishments guests here will find the familiar design in every detail. Nestled between the dynamic Breitscheidplatz with the Gedächtniskirche (Memorial Church) and the Kurfürstendamm on one side and the Zoo on the other, the 25hours Bikini Berlin effectively forges a bridge between vibrant city and green oasis. The bathrooms of 22 suites will be styled with innovative product highlights supplied by Kaldewei. Along with bath icons such as Classic Duo Oval Wide and Conoduo, all fitted with user-friendly electronic controls, the hotel’s design team opted to add Kaldewei’s bath audio system Sound Wave as a forward-looking new system to the bathrooms of the 25hours Bikini Berlin. It allows music and other audio files to be played via Bluetooth with the bath acting as the sound box to provide guests at the 25hours Bikini Berlin with a relaxing experience as they immerse themselves in their favourite tunes. Christoph Hoffmann, CEO/partner of the 25hours Hotel Company explains why Kaldewei fits the philosophy of the hotel in Berlin
