The Munich-based Ruby Group has opened a new Ruby Hotels property in Germany’s financial centre.

Ruby Louise is located in Frankfurt am Main and is named after Louise von Rothschild, the wife of a banker who lived in the German city in the 19th century. The hotel is situated close to various attractions, including the Alte Oper concert hall and luxury boutiques of Goethestrasse, and a five-minute walk from the Hauptwache and Taunusanlage S-Bahn stations.

The property includes an open-plan check-in, bar and café area, and a 400 sqm roof terrace with views of the city skyline. The bar features “gleaming copper, white marble and raw concrete” and extends over two floors, connecting to the co-working and chill-out lounge by a spiral staircase.

The hotel comprises 215 rooms over eight floors, with five room categories to choose from. Interiors draw inspiration from the Biedermeier era during the first half of the 19th century, with the hotel group describing the design as “characterised by the retreat into one’s own four walls, a newly discovered cosiness and an increased desire for walks through gardens and nature”. The design links to modern-day Frankfurt through the incorporation of street art and graffiti, with German artist Big Birne’s mural of Louise overlooking the lounge on the seventh floor.

The hotel also features a selection of original antiques in the public areas, including a Biedermeier desk and an original Landau carriage. Meanwhile, the roof terrace also pays homage to the Biedermeier era, with apple, pear and cherry trees designed to resemble a garden typical of the historic period. The terrace also includes sun loungers, a bar, and a garden pavilion.

Catherine Angulo, general manager of the hotel, commented:

“Our Ruby Louise is ideally located in the newly built Junghof Plaza in the heart of Frankfurt, with a huge roof garden that is open to all Frankfurt residents. We expect a recovery soon on the part of business travel and gastronomy and look ahead with confidence.”

Michael Struck, CEO and Founder of Ruby Hotels, added:

“Frankfurt as an international financial centre is an excellent location for Ruby and the next logical step in our expansion. Even if we would have wished that the vaccination rate was already further advanced. We think and act in the long term. Frankfurt is and will remain a highly attractive hotel and restaurant location in the future.”

The Ruby describes itself as a “lean luxury” brand that offers an affordable price by “consistently dispensing with superfluous and non-essential items.”

Ruby Hotels was founded in 2013 and the group currently operates eight hotels across Europe, with a further 18 under construction or in the planning phase. Last year, the group announced plans for a 173-room hotel in Notting Hill, in what will be its third property in the UK capital.

The group also recently announced plans for its first Stuttgart property, as well as an expansion of its existing Ruby Lissi hotel in Vienna.
