Introducing Sir Hotel's Instagram-based City Guides

 
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam

 

We repurposed Instagram to provide an innovative way for locals and visitors to experience the very best in food, culture and festivities. Check out each Sir Hotel's Instagram account and you'll see that it has been transformed into an easy-to-use city guide highlighting local favourites and hidden treasures: Sir Savigny’s guide to Berlin, Sir Nikolai’s Hamburg guide, Sir Joan’s Ibiza guide and two distinct Amsterdam guides for Sir Albert and Sir Adam

This exciting project allows us to connect our guests to the city, community and culture on a platform that they are already familiar with. The city guides reflect the unique character of each hotel and its corresponding neighbourhood while compelling users to experience the cities as locals.
— Liran Wizman

Using Instagram’s signature nine-square grid layout, customised graphics and colour coding, the accounts build on the already existing and familiar template. Optimising the Instagram interface, each hotel’s account uses the grid layout to split the recommendations into different categories in a design-savvy manner. Headings for each category, such as ‘Shops’ or ‘Feel Good Food,’ span across multiple squares effectively dividing the screen and making it visually appealing as well as user-friendly. Further to that, the social media app’s key features such as geolocation and tags are already integrated to create an easy way to for users to source additional information on each recommendation.

While you're clicking through the individual accounts, make sure you visit and follow our main account as well: @SirHotels.

A Never Ending Breakfast

At Benedict, the restaurant at Max Brown Kudamm in Berlin, breakfast lasts all day long.

At Benedict, located at the Max Brown Kudamm' in Berlin, breakfast is not a matter of time, but a matter of perspective. For Benedict, this means breakfast never ends since it's not a question of when, but what you eat that defines breakfast. Favourites include the egg balls, knuckle sandwich and not surprisingly, the Eggs Benedict, which you can have in various ways. See the entire menu here. Plus, be sure to stop by the Benedict Bakery, next to the front desk for fresh breads and pastries.

Fun Fact: Benedict was named after the brunch favourite, “Eggs Benedict,” a dish invented in the 19th century by Lemuel Benedict, a retired Wall Street stock broker. One day, Mr. Benedict wandered into the Waldorf Hotel’s restaurant hoping to find a cure for his morning hangover. He ordered “buttered toast, poached eggs, crisp bacon and Hollandaise sauce.” The restaurant’s maître d’hôtel was so impressed with the spontaneous dish that he put it on the breakfast and luncheon menus.

Our fifth Sir Hotel has just opened on the magical island of Ibiza. Sir Joan stands proudly in the centre of the island, overlooking the port and the old town and consists of 38 rooms and suites, two restaurants, a bar and a stunning pool. 

Our friends at THE ENTOURAGE GROUP are offering guests and locals the ultimate culinary experience. The popular Amsterdam-based restaurant, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar is serving contemporary Japanese cuisine fused with Peruvian influences. THE BUTCHER, an award-winning, high end burger bar, which is accessed through a separate entrance will be open throughout the night, ideal for the island’s late-night revellers.

As with all Sir Hotels, it is essential that Sir Joan reflect the ethos of the surrounding area. "We were inspired by the marina, the ocean, but also by the people on the island. By combining contemporary design with nostalgic details, we aim to create a unique urban oasis at the heart of the world-famous island” says Liran Wizman, owner and founder of Sir Hotels.
