...yes thats what it is. It's a slaughter (cows) house turned hotel, but you would never guess that. It is a very nice and comfortable place to stay. They have a nice lobby down stairs along with a in hotel resturaunt that has a very nice dinner. They also have a very nice breakfast...ranging from fresh fruits and breads to cheese and meats.
This is listed as a 4-star business hotel, and it lives up to and probably exceeds that listing. It’s an interesting place, once upon a time a slaughterhouse, with a massive industrial-meets-understated elegance lobby/bar and a vaguely factory feel to the hallways. Service at the desk was exceptional, even though I came in on a much discounted rate; breakfast was excellent and friendly; bar service was harried by a very loud group (not me), but good. There were “artisan” cigars available at the bar, with pictures of the rollers, and some liquors so exotic they don’t have English names. The room was immaculate.
It’s located south of the center of Offenbach, in a mostly residential area. It’s walkable from the train station if you don’t have too much to carry and have checked the route beforehand (it’s not a straight shot and is only marked towards the end) – otherwise, taxis are easy to get both at the station and at the hotel. Facilities include a fitness room and sauna, conference rooms, an event hall, wireless and wired internet in the rooms, and probably some other things I didn’t see.
I’m not sure whether it’s good or bad karma to stay in a converted slaughterhouse, but it’s a very nice hotel.
This hotel is relatively new. The main hall was built on top of the indoor swimming pool hall. Because the old swimming hall had such unusual architectual qualities, they decided to incorporate it into the new building, because the old indoor swimming pool was a Bauhaus structure. Incidently this is were the former Olympic Swimming Gold Medalist, Michael Gross used to train, but I don't know if they left the plaque there or not. At any rate the pool was filled in, and the hotel reception hall has a lovely view to the Buesing Park. The Hotel is right next to the Rococo Buesing Palace. The Buesing Palace, incidently, was not a noble residence; it was built by a former Industrial magnet for the industry Offenbach is famous for, the Leather Industry.
