Ruby Rosi's Story

Our second Bavarian tale and newest hotel in Munich is called Ruby Rosi Hotel & Bar, and her doors will open in April this year. Ruby Rosi is an homage to her host city and the fairy tales inspired by the metropolis as well as the popular folklore of the surrounding land.

Meet Ruby Rosi

Ruby Rosi Hotel & Bar is located right next to Munich's central train station, and is by extension convenient to reach from the MUC airport. Once you are there, some of Munich's most appealing landmarks, like the old town with the famous Frauenkirche, Marienplatz, or Viktualienmarkt are just a few minutes' walk away.

The entrance to our newest hotel is at the Bayerstrasse 21, where you will find luxuriously appointed rooms and public areas inspired by the old Isar fairy tales blended with traditional Bavarian history. Staying at Rosi is a magical journey with a rooftop garden to enchant your stay on sunny days and starlit evenings, where you can enjoy the house's signature cocktails from our potion wielding alchemists at our 24-hour bar.

An Isar Fairy Tale

Our second Ruby in Munich is a tale of a hotel, enriched by mystic items to cast the look and feel of an old castle straight out of Brother Grimms stories. Ruby Rosi is one of a kind in Bavaria’s capital.

The interior design gravitates around our unique Lean Luxury philosophy, with a rustic charm accentuated by dim lighting over the authentic furnishing. Ruby Rosi feels like a modern, avantgardist castle in the heart of Munich with 101 rooms are spread throughout this magical keep, all with a big, comfy bed, a rainfall shower, and soft, fluffy towels. While timber paneling brings warmth and vintage vibes, an elegant canopy and swags of fabric make the bed fit for any fairy tale prince or princess.

German folklore is rich in stories dripping with social knowledge, virtues, and mysticism. Chances are high that you know some of them, such as little red riding hood, snow white, or the beloved puss in boots, which have, like so many great tales, all been inspired by the central European idyll in its people's imagination. All those tales have been collected and archived to be preserved over time and contribute combined to the charm of Ruby Rosi Hotel & Bar. 

Find a selection of those tales in the library, where you can retreat into an accoutered design space and be enchanted by all the contemporary scrolls and books on the shelves of our in-house athenaeum. Alternatively, reinvigorate your strength with our modern menu, ranging from a healthy breakfast and barista coffee to signature cocktails and late-night snacks.

Rosi's Design

Ruby Rosi draws inspiration from all the mystical stories people tell each other in this realm, infused with a deep admiration for Bavaria's capital, turning our new hotel into its own Isarmärchen, which was originally sung and lived by Munich's beloved icon Bally Prell. The city is a present background in many folkloric tales and sagas of the region. Some of the tales are centered in the city and live on as landmark in various districts, like the mirror fountain and the time a basilisk inhabited it or the day the crown prince Ludwig der Bayer was stolen by a monkey from his residence, which is todays Alter Hof. The Bavarian metropolis is ideal for spending some quality time in its old alleys, magnificent architecture, and thriving markets. At night and certainly during the Octoberfest, the city reveals its festive and inviting character. People flock into the city to share a civilized drink followed by local and international cuisines in a baroque or neo-Gothic setting, you choose!

Drawing on the contrast found in all good folk tales, Rosi’s bar blends palatial and pastoral fairytale touches, fusing urban and rural realities with each other. Sleeping Beauty meets Rumpelstiltskin as opulent fabrics, marble, and brass are set off by cherry wood paneling, vintage tiles, and blackened steel. Adjustable lighting creates the right scenery for your own fairy tale, with the background sounds for your personal saga buzzing from our Marshalls amps.

Need a break from all the magic? Then head over our oak floors to the designated yoga room to relax and calm down from your urban adventure in the Bavarian metropolis.
