You know when you have one of the moments that is so surreal you have to pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming? Well walking into this hotel was one of those. As I stared up at the glistening chandelier, I muttered to myself 'I already don't want to leave' and that was before we had even checked in .My husband and I love going on city breaks and we usually splash the cash on somewhere nice to stay, but this time it was a little bit different. A few months ago I entered a competition with Business Traveller magazine and won a two night stay at the Jumeirah Frankfurt, the competition was entered on my other personal email address and for once my luck was nothing to do with my blogging. Before winning the competition, my husband and I had discussed visiting Germany - he studied German at school and loves the language and I was keen to explore another European country, so winning this competition was the perfect opportunity to go away.
The Jumeirah Frankfurt is a luxury hotel situated in the centre of Frankfurt, next to the main shopping district on Zeil street. Most of Frankfurt's attractions are within easy walking distance from the hotel and conveniently, the hotel is a few footsteps away from the underground station Haupwache which is on the same train line as the airport. The hotel features a spa, two restaurants, a superb bar area and a fitness suite, they even make their own honey from their honey farm on the roof.
During our visit to Frankfurt, we stayed in the skyline deluxe room at the Jumeirah as part of the 'shop and stay package'. The shop and stay package includes a stay in a skyline deluxe room, 80 Euro credit for their signature restaurant and a foot spa treatment for guest.The skyline deluxe room has panoramic views of the city, a spacious bathroom and living area, a free mini bar and pretty much everything you could ask for from a hotel room, including an easy to use safe, robes hanging in the bathroom area, magazines to read and even a tablet you can browse on.
The above picture was taken from our bedroom window, which overlooks the Main tower and all the skyscrapers in the financial district. On an evening it was lovely to lay in bed and look out of the window at the amazing view with all the buildings lit up and it was equally nice to wake up in the morning and admire the city.
Overall, I really cannot fault this hotel. The service was spectacular, the room was beautiful and the location was perfect. For two people who had never been to Frankfurt before, we left really impressed, both with the city and the hotel and we will definitely be visiting again.
