I’ve Heard Roomers: Frankfurt’s Glamorous Five-Star Hotel
The most stylish five-star hotel in Frankfurt is also one of the city’s most convenient. The cleverly named Roomers is just a short walk from the Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof but is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Germany’s busiest railway station. Located on the edge of the city centre in a quieter part of the city yet well situated for both business and leisure guests, Roomers provides an alluring sanctuary after a day of meetings or sightseeing.
Roomers defies the traditional definition of Frankfurt five-star hotels, inordinately conservative and, frankly, unimaginative in their decor. Understanding the needs and preferences of today’s sophisticated travellers, Roomers has made itself the place to stay for visitors to the city and the place to be seen among fashionable residents who come to the hotel throughout the day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the restaurant or on the garden terrace. Others come for drinks in the elegant bar, appointments in the conference rooms, or both. Leisure guests can trade meetings for greetings at the impressive museums along Frankfurt’s Museum Embankment, a stretch of the Main River where several institutions present a variety of themes in their collections. Longtime stalwarts such as the formidable Städel Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum Angewandte Kunst (decorative arts), and the Museum Of World Cultures, located in one of the grand mansions that served as residences of the city’s wealthiest denizens, have been joined more recently by the Architecture Museum, Museum Of Communications, and the excellent displays of the German Film Institute.
Rooms at Roomers range in size and shape, but not in their invariably high quality. Smartly appointed and well designed for functionality, Roomers‘ rooms are favourites with young European business executives who come to Germany’s financial hub for work and want to be close to the train station for easy rides to Frankfurt Airport. Perhaps they enjoy using the very hot yet very cool dry sauna on a cold winter day or like to be near the greenery of the riverside paths for a morning jog in spring and summer.
The high style is not limited to the building. The good looking staff are as friendly in personality as they are chic in attire. The house car is a Maserati Quattroporte, available for airport transfers and other rides around town.
Roomers is the most exclusive hotel in the portfolio of the Gekko Group’s contemporary properties, which also includes The Pure in Frankfurt and Roomers in Baden-Baden. A Roomers hotel is also coming to Berlin in the near future, as is another property, the provocatively named Provocateur Berlin.
