Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel have collaborated with Design Hotels™ and Lambs and Lions interior design studio to create the San Giorgio Hotel, a singular destination for likeminded free spirits.
Completed in 2012, built for travellers that expect more than just the standardised comfort and convenience, San Giorgio Hotel offers true and authentic experience.
The idea of the San Giorgio Hotel is to bring like-minded people together in a laid-back atmosphere. The San Giorgio Hotel is designed to make true interaction possible and yet giving those who are looking for privacy and relaxation from the daily routine the time to relax and recreate in a design oriented atmosphere. The story of the San Giorgio Hotel project truly begins some 15 years ago, in the mid-90s, when Thomas Heyne and Mario Hertel met on the shores of Ibiza. Thomas Heyne was a former real estate student from Augsburg who had turned down a lucrative career in construction to run a nightclub in Ulm, Germany. Fellow Bavarian Mario Hertel had opened up a café in Bayreuth when he was 18 and eventually built up his own mini hospitality empire – a clutch of restaurants, bars, cafes, and clubs that were all a bit racy for their starchy surroundings.
