Berlin may be progressive in terms of cool, vibrant and young hotels, but in other German metropoles, finding a comfortable and affordable bed for the night can be quite the difficult task. Thankfully, the 25hours hotel chain has become ubiquitous all over Europe, including Frankfurt.
Conveniently located in one of the hottest neighborhoods of Frankfurt, the Bahnhofsviertel, 25hours by Levis is (aptly, as the name suggest) dressed in denim. Although a proper hotel and not one of those run of a mill hostels that you used to squat in during your early 20s, it still sports a fresh, young and vibrant vibe, matching its surroundings.
Plenty of bars, restaurants and creative people have settled between the bordellos of the red light district, but the 25hours was one of the first places where young people could meet in that specific raunchy, but upcoming and artsy environment (think Potsdamer Straße meets Kottbusser Tor). Although the atmosphere has clearly transgressed from slightly dangerous and nasty to experimental and gentrified, you still can’t find many places to stay here that won’t charge you by the hour.
25hours by Levis: Ideal hotel for urban nomads and creatives
The patrons of the 25hours reflect the dynamic and multicultural spirit of the Bahnhofsviertel: DJs, designers and other creatives mingle well with the after-work crowd of the nearby banks and working districts. On hot summer nights the 25hours rooftop bar, operated by the Chez Ima crew (the hotel’s dinner and breakfast restaurant), is the place to be for the neighborhood.
But the 25hours hotel is not just a party hotspot. The 25hours brand everywhere (including Berlins Bikini franchise) caters first and foremost to the urban nomad, with free unlimited wifi, free rental Mini cars as well as iPods and sound systems being integral components of a long list of amenities. At the same time though, the service staff is always on the younger side, friendly and keen on preserving privacy for whoever wants it. This cross-section of creative business hotel and lively social space is what makes the 25hours by Levis a great choice for anyone who appreciates a contemporary way of life and travel.
