Frequently asked questions

The ADLON was conceived, planned and built at Jagdfeld Real Estate. Find out what you can expect from the makers of Germany’s most famous hotel for your hotel development in this interview with Benedikt Jagdfeld.

The ADLON was conceived in your company. Can you promise every investor such a trophy property?

Benedikt Jagdfeld: The ADLON is exceptional in every respect, you can’t copy that. But of course every investor benefits from our know-how and experience, which we have acquired over more than 20 years in this field. Especially as we can also map the entire value chain here – from the initial idea to the opening and beyond. Knowing all the processes and being able to control them in-house is an invaluable advantage.

Is Jagdfeld Real Estate also the right partner for hotel chains?

Benedikt Jagdfeld: Of course, we have developed hotels for well-known international players such as Kempinski, Accor, Steigenberger, Marriott, Melia and NH on more than one occasion. Professional expectations on all sides are important, because top-class hotel real estate requires a great deal of expertise and experience. Only then, however, can it develop into a great asset that not only generates good returns but is also fun. A well-made hotel can impress with more than just bare figures.

Is your focus on the development of 5-star-plus hotels?

Benedikt Jagdfeld: No. Although we are primarily associated with luxury hotels, we have also successfully realized city hotels in rather unknown medium-sized towns. Here, too, we first look closely at what the customer wants. This is about recognizing needs. A hostel can be more profitable than a 5-star hotel. For us, how a hotel should be run is first and foremost a matter for our clients.

Of course, we are always on hand to provide advice and attach great importance to approaching a property as partners. Even if you are new to this asset class, you have come to the right place.

Are hotel investments currently worthwhile at all?

Benedikt Jagdfeld: Sure. But don’t pin me down to one location. I can only seriously answer this question with a location and number of stars if I know the individual specifications. What we tackle should always have a solid foundation. In principle, however, location favors stars.
