Ho­tel Nas­sauer Hof Wies­baden

Business Traveller (India) - - TRIED AND TESTED -

BACK­GROUND A pri­vately owned lux­ury ho­tel, Ho­tel Nas­sauer Hof is a mem­ber of the Lead­ing Ho­tels of the World and the Selek­tion Deutscher Luxu­sho­tels (se­lec­tion of Ger­man lux­ury ho­tels). Its his­tory dates back to 1813 when Jo­hann Frein­sheim, the innkeeper, opened it as Deutsche Haus. Since 2001, the ho­tel has be­longed to a group of in­vestors. The likes of Vladimir Putin and John F. Kennedy have stayed at this ho­tel.

WHAT’S IT LIKE? A her­itage build­ing houses this clas­sic ho­tel. Its lobby feels very res­i­den­tial with warm light­ing and com­fort­able seat­ing. A grand pi­ano is placed in one cor­ner and ceil­ing high win­dows al­low enough nat­u­ral light to en­ter the lobby. Rooms and suites fol­low the same de­sign sen­si­bil­ity of be­ing invit­ing, clas­sic and so­phis­ti­cated.

WHERE IS IT? In the heart of the city and op­po­site to his­toric Kurhaus, Wies­baden’s most im­por­tant con­ven­tion cen­tre. A short walk away are a num­ber of shop­ping malls, the­atres and mu­se­ums. Frank­furt air­port is 30 min­utes by car.

ROOM FA­CIL­I­TIES Rooms em­anate the same homely and re­fined feel of the lobby. Its 159 rooms and suites are dec­o­rated in warm colours, dark wooden pan­elling and dim lights. Room cat­e­gories be­gin at Su­pe­rior Sin­gle room and con­tinue as Su­pe­rior Dou­ble room and Deluxe room. Suite types are Stu­dio, Ju­nior, Ex­ec­u­tive, Royal and Presidential. I stayed in a Ju­nior suite that is a lav­ish space that has a sep­a­rate bed­room and a liv­ing room.

RESTAU­RANTS AND BARS I ate all my meals at Orangery, the ho­tel’s restau­rant with a lovely view of the Kurhaus. I quite en­joyed the Ir­ish beef fil­let along­side some house red wine for din­ner. Break­fast has a sump­tu­ous spread of re­gional and in­ter­na­tional del­i­ca­cies. Ente is a fine-din­ing and Michellin-starred restau­rant serv­ing Ger­man cui­sine, Nas­sauer Hof Bar is known for its cigar col­lec­tion and the Lobby Bar are ideal for for­mal meets over en­trees and a drink or two.

MEET­ING FA­CIL­I­TIES Rooms and spa­ces that can cater to in­ti­mate din­ners, sem­i­nars and lec­tures, con­fer­ences to ban­quets are avail­able at the ho­tel.

LEISURE FA­CIL­I­TIES An in­door pool with ther­mal min­eral wa­ter and a sun ter­race and the 1,500 sqm Nas­sauer Hof Therme & Spa.

VER­DICT With its prime lo­ca­tion, su­perb ameni­ties and her­itage feel, this ho­tel is a great op­tion for busi­ness trips to Frank­furt. Ravi Lal­wani
