People have different preferences and tastes – thankfully. And that is why it is especially comfortable for some when the room design in a hotel is as uniform as possible. Surprises – also unpleasant – are thus excluded. Everything works.

But there are also a large number of travelers who hate just this uniformity. They prefer to look for a design hotel where there is something to discover around every corner. Whether the respective interior inspires or not, it always stimulates conversation.

Design hotels: Unique items are expensive, but they are also valuable

But design has its price – and it is often high. A handmade once costs more than its industrially manufactured counterpart, even if it is not so perfect. People are not logical about these things, which is really nice.

For example, if you want to stay overnight in the “Hôtel de Crillon” in Paris, which fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld († 85) has helped design, you have to pay 1,500 euros per person. Design is also available for little money! Here are three seductive examples from Germany.

3 design hotels that guarantee an unforgettable stay:

Master room Leipzig

Meisterzimmer in Leipzig is definitely one of the best hotel addresses for fans of industrial architecture. However, you need to have a little luck or plan well in advance to grab one of the four master bedrooms located on the site of a former cotton mill. Today, the place functions as a trendy event and exhibition center with theaters, cinema, café, workshops and shops. Numerous artists – well over 100 – have their studio here.

The master rooms themselves are very spacious, the largest with about 116 square meters can accommodate up to six people. It was once the ladies’ toilet, later became a studio and is now open to families and other travelers. Meisterzimmer undoubtedly offers the chance to conquer Leipzig from a very special place. And those who fall for the charm of the area will hardly be able to carry out their other sightseeing plans and will have to return.

Shipowners, Lübeck

There is no better way to say it, so we quote a quote from the hotel’s website: “With attention to detail, Scandinavian-Hanseatic cosiness meets modern shipping”. We are talking about the hotel “Die Reederin”, whose history dates back to the 18th century. Built from 1790, the building was owned by the shipping company FH Bertling for almost 150 years from the middle of the 19th century, where also ex-Chancellor Willy Brandt († 78) – from Lübeck – completed his internship.

“Die Reederin” is also small but fine, more than seven rooms and suites are not available. But these offer guests everything their heart desires – and always a bit of history. How about the spacious Ursula room, the company’s former typewriter room, which has its own loggia in addition to a comfortable shower?
