URBAN LOFT is Althoff Hotels new lifestyle and design brand – an urban microcosm that connects, networks and inspires. A meeting place for cultures. Local. Creative. Cosmopolitan.
I gained my first work experience at Althoff Hotels while still at school. The Company lets me be creative and to discover food in new ways. Bringing to perfection the things I’ve learned is what motivates me. I like the Company’s exclusiveness. My goal: to get a Michelin star against my name!
Supervisors and colleagues treat each other with respect and appreciation. Attention is given to each person’s specific needs and circumstances. There is also the good work/life balance. What makes my job special and gives me great pleasure is the contact with our fantastic guests and their high expectations, and Schloss Bensberg being a very special location to work at.
I am pleased to be a trainee at Althoff Hotels, because there is also the chance of being taken on once I have completed my training. Colleagues are also more than just colleagues here. We support and help each other, both in our work and private lives.
I have been working as a masseur at Althoff Seehotel Überfahrt for 17 years now. What I like most about it is being part of a great team with flat hierarchies and a family-like atmosphere. Our all-suite spa cabins are beautifully equipped with wonderful views where we can really pamper our guests.
I look back on a 20-year career with Althoff Hotels, and I now have a small family myself. I am so grateful that I can combine being a mum with being a member of staff at the AMERON Lucerne Hotel Flora. Having worked here for so long, I really feel connected to the Company and am proud to be part of the Althoff family.
For me, working at Althoff means opportunities for professional and personal development. My potential was recognised from the beginning, which really motivated me to further my career.
Althoff Hotels gave me the perfect career start after my dual vocational/degree course. Opportunities to transfer in-house and continuous training have enabled me to keep developing personally. The cooperative and friendly interaction with colleagues means that I enjoy coming to work every day.
Althoff, AMERON and URBAN LOFT offer a diversity that enables every member of staff to find their individual “favourite” workplace in unique locations. It’s really special to be able to work in an amazing team, putting smiles on our guests’ faces and to keep on impressing them.
Our three corporate pillars are the cornerstone of every single hotel. The transparent communication and the appreciative management during the Corona crisis have shown me once again why I have been loyal to the Althoff Hotels for many years.
As an employee of Althoff Hotels for two years now, I feel part of a constantly growing family that exceeds my expectations of flexibility, mutual trust and support on all levels every day. The cooperation in the team as well as the general work-life balance reflects an employer who, in combination with the opportunities for further training, offers me an individually unique workplace.
I am here because we work together as equals. I feel very at home, appreciated and, above all, understood. The working atmosphere is very supportive. And honestly, I’m here because of my supervisor – he makes my job feel secure. Another reason is the walk from the staff quarters to my workplace. The Allgäu air does me good and the nature is simply wonderful.
For me, working at Althoff means feeling at home. I get a sense of security because I know my job is safe. Teamwork is very supportive and respectful. Our opinions and suggestions are well received and accepted. Being together here is like being in a big family, making me feel completely at home and content. Yes – I am happy!
