A hotel in Frankfurt's bustling Ostend district, the Goldman 25hours applies nightclub principles to a hotel, resulting in a flowing, funky space that works both as a hideaway and a local hotspot. Ardi Goldman, the visionary force behind much of Frankfurt's nightlife, oversaw the conversion of the old Henninger Hof hotel complex to a and boutique hotel displaying an eclectic and quirky mix of design furniture, vintage elements and references to pop culture and art.
The 49 guestrooms are stacked on 7 colour-themed floors, all variations on a basic plan: high-quality basic materials and rectilinear design, with floors by Object Carpet and a mix of vintage tapestry and modern wall treatments. Frankfurt-based furnishingsartists Delphine Buhro and Michael Dreher are responsible for the extraordinary style mix, including lamps from Flos and furnishings by Swedish design firm Snowcrash as well as various artistic uniques.
The Goldman Restaurant provides the perfect social outlet, with its communicative table and the multiple awarded cuisine that has long ago put the hotel on the map.
