Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt

Last year the Kempinski Frankfurt unveiled new Deluxe Rooms, Park Suites, and a Eurasian restaurant (“Sra Bua by Juan Amador”), decorated with sandstone murals custom-made by Balinese craftsmen. The makeover continues in 2014, as an extensive refurbishment program transforms the property that was formerly known as the Kempinski Hotel Gravenbruch Frankfurt.

Located 15 minutes from downtown Frankfurt, on its own private park with a lake, the five-star hotel occupies a former hunting lodge. The refurbishment coincides with a new name: Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt. Outside, the driveway and hotel entrance are getting a completely new look, while inside, the public areas are getting a complete overhaul.

The lobby has been gutted to make way for a magnificent foyer and spacious reception leading to the K-Lounge. A glass dome will be added to the roof to provide natural lighting, and an open fireplace will contribute to the ambience. The work is expected to be completed in October.

Madeleine Moes and her team at Designer's House Frankfurt took inspiration from the hotel’s history, emphasizing the rural charm of the former hunting lodge and its “country club character.” Follow along on the hotel’s blog for up-to-the-minute news on the reconstruction.
