The Meliá Frankfurt City Hotel rises up 140 metres above the beautiful tree line Senkenbergeanlage and alongside the historic Senkenberg Museum.  And it should come as no surprise that with a height like that, that this iconic glass tower offers up breathtaking views over the Frankfurt skyline.  Also worth mentioning now – a meal or cocktail in the Oben Restaurant and Skybar (16th floor) is an absolute must for both Frankfurters and travellers alike!

About the Meliá Brand

Founded in 1956 in Palma de Mallorca (Spain), Meliá Hotels International has more than 380 hotels around the world.  And its continued commitment to responsible tourism led it to be named the most sustainable hotel company in Spain and Europe in 2020, according to the SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment.

The Vibe

A muted colour palette and monochrome furnishings are punctuated with vibrant greenery which beautifully soften the clean lines.  Undoubtedly too, the lighting is very cleverly used to not only illuminate but create statement pieces within their own right throughout the hotel.

As mentioned earlier, the view is absolutely phenomenal!  And with the floor to ceiling glass windows you can truly immerse yourself in it!  Now if you can, steal yourself away from the skyline for moment and drink in the pop art that drips from the walls!  Without a doubt Nathali von Kretschtmann’s art works make for worthy opponents battling the view for your attention.

Also equally important as the ambience and setting, are the staff! And throughout our stay we can honestly say we could not fault them.  From check in to checkout they were incredibly efficient, friendly and attentive.

Gym and Wellness Area

What a pleasure Meliá have made working out when you are away from home!  Honestly, hotel gyms often seem like a second thought hidden somewhere in the basement with a token treadmill and few dusty dumbbells if you lucky!  We were delighted to find that this was not the case at Meliá!!  Not only is the gym well kitted out, but, the Sauna and wellness area is calming with gorgeous views and plenty of space to relax and decompress!

The Rooms

Without a doubt the location and incredible views over the city are two of Meliá Frankfurt City Hotel’s biggest draw cards.  So it should come as no surprise that each of the hotel’s 431 rooms and suites come with floor-to-ceiling windows giving iconic views over the city skyline and mountains beyond. Many rooms also feature a private balcony.  And all rooms come with stylish, minimalist design and amenities including flat-screen TVs.

The Level

The Level is the perfect choice for guests wanting a more private and a exclusive experience.  It includes superior rooms, bespoke service and an enhanced staff attention.  Additional exclusive areas include a separate reception and lounge, this includes snacks and drinks that guests can enjoy throughout the day.  Also worth noting, The Level guests can enjoy their breakfast here each morning in a more relaxed and intimate setting.

State of the Art Conference and Business Centre

Just like the rest of the hotel, the conference and business centre has been well thought out!  With no less than 1,400 sq m of adaptable event space and meeting rooms there is plenty of room to manage all business affairs.  The hotel’s meeting rooms have high ceilings and state-of-the-art technology making them a pleasure to work in.  Furthermore, much of the space can be flexibly combined or sectioned to meet the party size and event requirements.

The Restaurant, Bar and Mixology

So whilst it may not bare the famous Urrechu in the name, there is no doubt that it is an Iñigo Urrechu venture.  And with Eddy O’Brien managing it, the bar and restaurant is in very safe hands.  Also the wine list and cocktail menu was developed as rigorously as the food menu!  So whether you are after a perfectly paired 3 course meal or cocktails overlooking the beautiful skyline Oben definitely delivers!
