The Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts brand is expanding its portfolio: LFPI Hospitality Group and H World International have signed a franchise agreement for a hotel in Bielefeld. Historic Hotel Bielefelder Hof will be operating under the name "Steigenberger Hotel Bielefelder Hof" beginning February 1, 2024.  

In the words of Oliver Bonke, Chief Executive Officer of H World International: "I am delighted that Hotel Bielefelder Hof is to become part of the portfolio of our renowned Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts brand. The brand blends rich heritage, modern excellence, and heartfelt service, all of which is reflected in the Hotel Bielefelder Hof, the first address of the city. In LFPI Hospitality Group we found an experienced hotel owner and operator as a franchise partner."

"The partnership with Steigenberger Hotels & Resorts will further bolster our position in the regional hotel market. Moreover, we will be stepping up and widening ongoing renovation measures so that we can offer our guests a truly unique experience when they stay with us," adds Philipp Bessler, Managing Partner of LFPI Hospitality Group.

This superior 4-star hotel enjoys a prime location right across from the main railway station, offering a direct link to Stadthalle Bielefeld. The hotel building's stunning façade immediately catches the eye. And it features 161 comfortable rooms. Another highlight is the exclusive tower suite, situated in the building's historic bay window. Guests can indulge in regional cuisine in the EssBar. On top of it all, the hotel sports twelve air-conditioned meeting and event rooms, accommodating up to 180 people. For exclusive events that need to be pampered with outstanding service and culinary delights, restaurant GeistReich with its unique setting can be recommended. The hotel's facilities also feature a fitness room and its own underground car park, both of which guests are invited to use.
