THE HARBR. SPIRIT - ['ha:bƏr] or ['ha:rbɚ]

We don't want to reinvent the world of hotels at HARBR.. But we want to make it better. We want to be closer to people. To their requirements. Which is why we constantly ask ourselves how we personally would prefer it. Because our own experience tells us what is missing in many other places. What is being missed as a guest when on the road. At HARBR. we would like to close this gap.

Hospitality and warmth, character and openness, authenticity and reliability as well as respect, tolerance and a sense of responsibility – these values are our compass. They form the basis for our day-to-day work and dealings with guests, colleagues, suppliers and partners.

Hotels are ten a penny. We are a harbour. A home harbour. A place to anchor with ambience. A place for switching off. Or opening up. But always with character and style. Land ahoy! Arrive. Let go. Tie up.

Welcome at HARBR.

Our history
DQuadrat Real Estate Firmensitz
Founding - DQuadrat Living

In 2014, our expertise and passion for hotels led us to formulating ideas and a business plan for our own hotel management company.

Planning for both initial projects, the HARBR. boarding house and the BE:AT student homes also commenced in 2014.

Gründung DQuadrat Living GmbH

Founded in 2015 as a 100% subsidiary of DQuadrat Real Estate, DQuadrat Living trades with high professional standards.

DQuadrat Real Estate works to the rules of the RICS real estate association, and we feel equally bound by these rules of contact.

Markenidee HARBR. hotel & boardinghouse

At the start of 2015 we presented our ideas, concepts and initial floor plan solutions to the marketing agency Floor7..

The location for the project in Ludwigsburg's 'Bleyle-Quartier', the site of the former Bleyle knitwear factory with the well-known sailor suit was emblematic of the world of colours and an initial direction for marketing the basic concept.

Our values

Environment and sustainability 
Despite being an overused term, we still want sustainability to apply to us. All of our buildings are constructed, developed and operated as carbon neutral. The economical use of resources is to be a priority for every member of staff. Although specific certification for the business is checked, it is less important to us than acting responsibility.

A high degree of quality is important to us. We also deal openly with mistakes, as this is the only way for anyone to improve.

What is our long-term goal?
Implementing our interpretation of hospitality at the HARBR. hotels and boarding houses at central locations in Germany.
Our growth is not driven by figures, rather is aimed at locations and opportunities.
