When coming from the airport, I asked our taxi driver if he knew about our hotel Roomers and if it was nice… he said it was nice, but very black. I wasn’t quite sure what he meant at the time, but now I do. It’s as if you took Prince in his Lovesexy period, and made it all Black, (in Color Pallet, mind you). That rather describes this place.
Very modern and VERY designed, more than a bit form over function. Flourishes and hanging things everywhere… all the sinks have special grates (plastic I may add) to appear flat and sexy. A great deal of thought went into the concept and execution of this hotel, so that gives them big credit… except it is awfully black and adds to the gloom I know to be Frankfurt. I kept loosing my Jet Black iPhone, I would put it down on a table and it would just disappear. Thank goodness I have the apple watch so I could ping it. The photography throughout the hotel is B&W exotic / cabaret theme. Lovesexy meets Madonna Erotica.
The Deluxe Room is not bad in size, but due to the curve in the wall, there was a lot of wasted space… and there in the corner was The Love Tub. A real missed opportunity for a great sitting area. From what I understand, all the corner rooms have the Tub. And this is the first time, ever!, when magazines in a room contain a Playboy. “Lovesexy”
The Spa & Fitness area on the roof had an odd vibe to me… young men and women wandering in and out wearing only white robes. At one point we spotted a guy in is robe on the street wandering. A Lovesexy Zombie?
The staffing is wonderful, a bit curt, but lovely all the same. And a big plus for Roomers, a very good restaurant, they even knew how to prepare fish properly… decent food in Frankfurt, who would have known. And the bar made spot on great drinks.
I have mixed feelings on this hotel. It was a good hotel, but with it’s 50 Shades of Black concept, obviously I am not the target audience. I would most likely stay elsewhere on my next visit to Frankfurt, but for the right person, Lovesexy!
