The new four-star hotel Titanic has been built on a wide vacant building lot in Berlin´s central district called “Mitte” and with its multiple wings extends wide on to the premises. With its 388 rooms, throughout the five storey hotel, the building has a total of seven storeys above ground and two below.
The façade of the new building was designed to appear both rigorous and expressive. The structure features an elegantly proportioned window openings, flat bevelled door jamb and sculptural decorative elements, which brings out the character of the building and makes the storeys and hotel rooms readable from the exterior. Depth and vitality occur from the various surface treatments of the light beige-coloured artificial stone. The plastered courtyard façades are accordingly divided into different levels.
The entrance for the hotel guests, restaurant customers and conference attendees is located at the street front and leads straight into the main ground-level lobby and glass-roofed atrium. The restaurant provides seating from 120 to 150 seats. With its 7-meter high ceiling, the event room at the ground floor can host various types of events for up to 1,400 guests.
The first floor includes a breakfast room, multi-space conference area and a business centre. The hotel rooms are located above the first floor: 14 of them fitted for people with special needs, and another 20 equipped with similar helping tools. The wellness area is a special feature of the hotel and is equipped with a pool, Turkish steam bath (hamam) and sauna, spread out extensively throughout the two basement levels. These levels also contain functional areas and a 189 space parking lot. The administration wing of the Titanic Resorts & Hotels in Germany was added as a separate structure to the hotel.
