Grand Hessischer Hof in Frankfurt is known as one of the best hotel in Frankfurt. I just had to explore and experience this hotel myself and I can definitely say that it deserves its good reputation. Making part of the Leading hotels of the World, Grand Hessischer hof offers a very high quality level. The hotel is located in the city center, near the central train station. Whether you are in Frankfurt for shopping, sightseeing or businesses purposes, everything is nearby… Very convenient! Did you know by the way that the nearby famous Frankfurt Messe is the third-largest trade fair in the world? The Grandhotel Hessischer Hof is located directly across the trade fair grounds. I stayed in many hotels in Frankfurt already, but this one definitely has one of the better locations!
When I entered the hotel, I immediately knew that our stay here would be a great one. The hotel has a great history. Did you know that the hotel is owned by the Hessian princely family? The grand lobby is stylish with beautiful art works and furnishings. Staff made us feel welcome right from the beginning. From the comfortable seating areas to the efficient check-in procedure, everything went smoothly and ultra friendly right from the beginning. With a total of 121 rooms and suites, the Grandhotel Hessischer Hof isn’t a very large hotel which is why they offer a very personal service to each guest.
The superior room we stayed in was large and ultra luxurious. All rooms are decorated with high quality materials. The lines on the king sized bed were great! The room actually felt like a junior suite to me with an entrée, nice couch and large desk. Other highlights in the room are the complimentary minibar and complimentary shoeshine service!
The marble bathroom was very comfortable featuring bath tub and separate shower. Grand Hessischer Hof’s toiletries were a plus! Love those…
The Grandhotel Hessischer Hof has a spa area with sauna, steam room and a complete fitness center. Always nice to be able to make use of those facilities after a day in busy Frankfurt. The place was immaculately clean and staff was, again, very professional and kind. In most hotels, fitness centers are located in the basement of the hotel, but at Grand Hessischer Hof you can enjoy impressive panoramic views over Frankfurt. They even have a large terrace overlooking the surrounding areas.
The hotel offers several dining options such as Jimmy’s Bar. This traditional bar is fun to hang out and is a Frankfurt instituation for more than 50 years with live piano music in the evenings and the most delicious cocktails. This is the place to be for a nice aperitif before enjoying a delicious meal at Restaurant Sèvres which is one the best restaurants in Frankfurt. This is also the place where they serve breakfast. Having breakfast at the Grandhotel Hessischer Hof is something to look forward to. The extensive buffet truly offers something for just everybody! Some highlights I experienced were the fancy à la carte options (a must try is their cheese-omelette, loved those!) and of course, a glass of champagne is the perfect start of the day!
Grandhotel Hessischer Hof is one of a kind! I love every aspect of this place. It truly is a ‘grandhotel’ and staying here is a guarantee of a flawless stay in an ultra luxurious environment. You will love it!
