Competition: win a three-night stay at the Ameron Frankfurt Neckarvillen Boutique hotel
In our latest competition, we're offering our readers the chance to stay at the Ameron Frankfurt Neckarvillen Boutique hotel, which occupies a series of historic buildings at the heart of the German city's centre.
This competition has now closed.
One fortunate reader and their guest will be invited for a three-night stay at the Ameron Frankfurt Neckarvillen Boutique, which includes use of the hotel's breakfast buffet and complimentary chocolates and wine.
Situated in the city's buzzing Bahnhofsviertel neighbourhood, the hotel takes over a row of four early 20th-century buildings which formerly served as villas. Together they've been carefully renovated to accommodate plush guest rooms and communal areas.
Its interiors are the work of Italian designer Luigi Fragola, who has worked to develop an aesthetic that merges art-deco style with "classic elegance and modern lightness".
This mix is seen in the grandiose hotel lobby, which boasts pale-blue surfaces and wooden parquet floors. Red and egg-yolk yellow velvet furnishings have been dotted throughout, complemented by brass-edged side tables and glass light fixtures.
A similar colour and material palette has been applied throughout the 133 guest rooms, some of which have huge porthole windows that overlook the surrounding Frankfurt streets. Calacatta oro marble has been used to form bathroom sinks and herringbone-pattern shower cubicles.
The ground-floor restaurant, named Le Petit Royal Frankfurt, has been given a cosier feel. Almost every surface of the room is upholstered in golden-hued jute, while some of the windows have been inlaid with champagne-coloured glass.
Cushioned booths provide seating for almost 80 diners, who can order from a French-inspired menu of steak, seafood and seasonal vegetables.
Should guests opt to head out for dinner, they can choose from the wealth of eateries in Bahnhofsviertel which offer a variety of global cuisines.
The neighbourhood is also just a stone's throw from attractions like the Schauspiel Frankfurt theatre, as well as popular shopping streets Zeil and Goethestrasse.
Ameron Frankfurt is just one of the hotel chain's German locations, joining branches in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and Bonn. There are also Ameron properties in the Swiss towns of Lucerne and Davos.
The hotels are presided over by hospitality group Althoff Hotels.
"With the new space in Frankfurt, we are implementing the first boutique concept on a luxury level for Ameron, while remaining true to the brand's DNA with our special location and focus on exceptional design and art," said Thomas H Althoff, founder of Althoff Hotels.
One winner and a guest will enjoy a three-night stay at Ameron Frankfurt, with complimentary use of the hotel's breakfast buffet.
