Ruby Hotels & Bars

Your city break story starts here

Luxurious rooms, comfy beds, unique bars, local hosts and exciting neighbourhoods. Each Ruby hotel has its own tale to tell and imaginative design to match. So where will you go first?

Get to know Ruby

One of the best things about travelling is the characters you meet – and the tales they have to tell. So why not start with where you stay?


From 80s kitsch to haute couture, royalty to reportage, each Ruby hotel has its own unique story and design, rooted in the city it calls home.


And we pride ourselves on supporting all things local, from the food we serve at breakfast to the bands who play in the bar.


When it comes to connections, you’ll find us in the heart of the city, with top-notch transport links and lots of local knowledge.

After a busy day in the city, each room’s a quiet haven of calm. From the luxurious bedding and big, fluffy towels, to the rainfall shower and aromatherapy amenities.


Thanks to our Lean Luxury philosophy, all these thoughtful little touches won’t cost you the earth. By being smart with space, streamlining our systems and doing away with the things you don’t need, we save money and so do you.


That’s why the bar doubles as a breakfast room, it takes seconds to check in and you’ll find snacks and free drinks at the Galley.


So, where will you start your Ruby story?

Buy two, get three

Book two nights and get an extra night for free

Crisp white hotel sheets, nights out in new places, that first sip of a sundowner... oh how we've missed all those magic travel moments.

To celebrate our reopening, we want to give you some extra time to savour all those experiences you missed last year.

So, when you book two nights or more, you’ll and get one extra night for free.

To help you unwind with complete peace of mind, we’ve made some changes to the way we do things. From taking extra care with cleaning and making space for social distancing to introducing Covid testing for our teams and adapting our breakfast buffet, we’re doing all we can to keep everyone healthy and happy.


New: Ruby Louise


Named after Louise Rothschild, whose family’s financial empire famously began in Frankfurt, Ruby Louise blends 19th-century elegance with edgy urban accents.

Taking the lead from her genteel grit, we’ve combined the clean lines and soft curves of Biedermeier design with graffiti and modern art to create a true Mainhattan mood.

Rooms all feature our signature Lean Luxury style, the bar menu offers a delicious mix of classic cocktails and Italian-inspired snacks, and for a sundowner, the Skybar is hard to beat.

Frankfurt’s fashion district is right on the doorstep, while the old town and business district are both within easy strolling distance. Hauptwache station is a five-minute walk away, from where the airport’s around 15 minutes by S-Bahn.

New: Ruby Luna


Shooting skyward just a stone’s throw from the Altstadt, Ruby Luna’s 1950s building is a towering testament to that most ambitious of eras: the space age.

Inspired by the optimism and energy of the time, the bar features a blend of sleek lines and starbursts, set off by playful pops of colour and bright chrome accents, with a modern menu that includes healthy breakfast, signature cocktails and late-night snacks.

Curious explorers can settle down, the courtyard is a bright, spacious base to set up a laptop or settle in with a drink. After dark though, the rooftop Observatory is the place to be, with its unbeatable views of the starlit city.

Benrather Strasse U-Bahn station is right outside, from where the airport’s a half-hour hop with a quick change en route.

New: Ruby Ella


Hit the lights, roll the cameras and strike up the band, because Ruby Ella is coming to you live from the Capitol in Cologne. Built on the site of the studio that once hosted Germany’s most popular talk shows, Ella’s roots are well and truly star-studded.

That’s why we’re bringing back the 90s late-night TV buzz. From polished chrome and neon signs to microphones and musical instruments, the bar harks back to those heady days, while plush fabrics and smooth curves recall the Capitol’s theatrical beginnings in the 1950s.

Upstairs, each room reflects our unique Lean Luxury style, with a big, comfy bed, a rainfall shower and soft, fluffy towels. While wood panelling and floors add natural texture, metallic accents and a moonlit skyline nod to the city by night. And, instead of a house band to play you in, there’s a Marshall amp to add oomph to your playlist.

Friesenplatz station is right outside, from where the city centre and main station are a three-minute tram ride, and the airport’s half an hour away.

Lean Luxury

Like you, we travel a lot. And wherever we go, we expect three things: a great night’s sleep, a powerful shower and top-notch connections – both to the city and the WiFi.

What we’re less keen on is paying for extras we never use. In dynamic cities bursting with Michelin stars and foodie pop-ups, room service sandwiches just don’t cut the mustard.

So we set out to create the best of both worlds – hotels with style and substance, but none of those expensive extras.

It’s what we call Lean Luxury.

To us, luxury means laid-back comfort in characterful surroundings, right in the heart of the city.

The lean part is all about being smart with space, streamlining things behind the scenes and doing away with the things you don’t need.

This innovative approach saves us and you money, without compromising on comfort.

Safe, Sound & Sparkling

We take your safety seriously, so we’re being even more careful than usual with our cleaning. We’ve also made a few other changes, to help keep everyone healthy and happy.


  • Spotless bedrooms – every room is deep cleaned and disinfected between guests.
  • Squeaky clean shared spaces  we regularly clean and disinfect public areas throughout the day.
  • Spotlight on surfaces – all touchscreens, handles and buttons are cleaned at least once an hour.
  • Hand sanitiser on tap – you’ll find touch-free dispensers at the bar, at check-in and in the WCs.
  • Brand new key cards – your key card will be freshly made for your stay.
  • Face masks and screens – for extra peace of mind, we’ve put up screens and are wearing face masks.
  • Fewer seats for extra space – sadly, that means no bar stools for now - sorry.
  • Cashless and quick – we can only accept card and contactless payments at the bar.
  • Fresh barista coffee at the bar – you can also pick up free tea in the Galley.
  • Get a taste of the neighbourhood – our favourite local restaurants are now delivering their top dishes.
  • Certified water quality – just the same as always.

For your safety and ours, all of our infection-control measures meet B·A·D’s Covid-19 occupational safety standard.
