Hotel Chester, Heidelberg (Germany)

Stylish architecture and a sophisticated interior

Shortly after its opening, the Hotel Chester in Heidelberg received the prestigious “Opening Award” from German hotel magazine “Tophotel”.

Stylish architecture and a sophisticated interior create a pleasant atmosphere: warm tones in rooms flooded with light and elegant design features provide the perfect setting for guests to relax and unwind. What hotel industry magazines say: “The perfect balance of work and life in the heart of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region.” In addition to the rooms featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and the conference centre, the roof terrace with its lounge atmosphere is specifically highlighted in this context. From here, you can look out over the rooftops of Heidelberg right along the Neckar as far as the city’s historic castle. This unique experience is accurately summed up by the hotel’s slogan: “At the centre of things yet away from it all.”

BEGA luminaires set the scene, highlighting the character of the wellness area. For decades, BEGA light bricks have served as outstanding lighting construction details – as demonstrated in the Hotel Chester. Highly transparent and resistant to ageing, the opal glass of the round wall luminaires softly distributes the light. The high-quality hand-blown luminaire glass creates the appropriate atmosphere to match the philosophy behind the roof terrace area.

Square recessed wall luminaires also enable glare-free illumination of the ground surfaces on the terrace. They ensure areas in front of the installation surface are safely lit, even in the dark. In addition, shielded luminaires add to the pleasant and calming effect of the lounge area with their reduced light distribution.

BEGA recessed wall luminaires prove their worth as valuable lighting tools as early as the construction phase. The shallow installation depth and the BEGA mounting system enable simple and economical installation in solid or hollow structures.
