Located in the Südstadt district, Hotel St. Josef is the third addition to the local brand Hopper, which is already present in the Kunibertsviertel and Belgisches Viertel. Here again, Hopper has invested in a building whose walls bear witness to the past (former childrens nursery, canteen for the poorest children, retirement home for wealthy women).
In 2009, the first hotel rooms opened, with German-styled wooden floors and wooden headboards (we love the use of single duvets, even for double beds). For the St Josef, Hopper called on young artists from the Academy of Art in Munich to make sculptures, which are now in the rooms under bell jars.
In the morning, take your breakfast in the old chapel under Neo-Gothic vaults. In the evening, after your long day, you can enjoy the Finnish sauna or the gym. The good news. Your friends' dogs and cats are allowed in your room you just have to make a small contribution for cleaning up after them.
