With the opening of a Moxy Hotel on August 1, 2022, the I/D Cologne will be expanded to include a modern lifestyle hotel. The hotel will be managed under the Moxy by Marriott brand, which means that the world's largest hotel group will be based in I/D Cologne. The GHOTEL Group takes over the hotel operation of the 222 modern rooms with a spacious lounge and bar area as well as a fitness studio.

The new Moxy Hotel is in a prominent location on the corner of Schanzenstrasse and Peter-Huppertz-Strasse and offers excellent transport links. As the first hotel in the Schanzenviertel, it not only fits into the existing structures as an important building block for the quarter, but also offers real added value for the office and cultural location of Cologne-Mülheim. Business travelers will find attractive overnight accommodations in the Moxy as well as event visitors to the nearby E-Werk and the Palladium and will be equally attracted by the contemporary, stylish furnishings.

Designed by the internationally renowned architects caspar. The building that was designed scores with a stylish green clinker brick facade with triangular pilaster strips, which clearly stands out from the neighboring buildings on Schanzenplatz. The special architecture is visible from afar and has a high recognition value, which can also be found in the interior - based on the history of the location as a freight station. The hotel bar, which is open to the public, invites visitors 24 hours a day with a relaxed, modern lifestyle atmosphere and a lot of comfort and also offers the right ambience for after-work events.

The hotel project, realized by Art-Invest Real Estate in a joint venture with OSMAB Holding AG, forms an essential building block for the I/D Cologne. "A hotel is indispensable for the modern office world of the I/D Cologne as well as for the gastronomy and leisure facilities of the entire Schanzenviertel," explains Arne Hilbert, Managing Director at Art-Invest Real Estate. "With the Moxy Hotel, the GHOTEL Group is now opening a lifestyle hotel that fits perfectly into the modern working environment and, with its style and interior design, picks up on the surroundings and history of the location, just like we do with the architectural language throughout the quarter."

"With the Moxy Hotel, we not only complete the mix of uses at I/D Cologne, but also appeal to all visitors to the nearby event locations and Koelnmesse," adds Holger Kirchhof, board member of OSMAB Holding AG. "We are very pleased that the second Moxy Hotel in Cologne is now enriching the Schanzenviertel with its attractive offer."

Erik Florvaag, Managing Director of the GHOTEL Group, is convinced of the new location: "The opening of the second Cologne Moxy Hotel in the I/D Cologne offers very good prospects for the GHOTEL Group. We see great potential in the district location, which will certainly be very popular with business travelers as well as with visitors to the surrounding cultural and event offerings and the Koelnmesse.”
