Traveling home from Luxembourg I had an overnight at Frankfurt during which I stayed at a small boutique hotel called Libertine Lindenberg.
The hotel is one of 3 houses across Frankfurt and guests get access to all Libertine properties. The very cool thing about Libertine houses is their approach: they refer to themselves as a collective, rooms can be rented for any duration, there is a shared fully equipped kitchen with a communal dining room, laundry room, and a small gym. The concierge is only on-site during the day but access to everything is by a keypad so you can come and go as you wish.
Each room is unique, decorated by local designers and manufacturers and “almost all of the objects in the apartments are handmade one-off pieces,” states their website. I stayed in Libertine 19, the room has all of the standard amenities, a full size clawfoot tub, flatscreen TV with Netflix and a sound system and radio with connection to the in-house recording studio (yes, an actual recording studio). The full bathroom was a major bonus on this rainy travel day and is fully equipped for a blissful bath: salts and slightly offensive but very entertaining hairs and skin care products included (“Aromatic picnic [soap] for your dirty hands”).
Located centrally in the heart of Frankfurt the property is surrounded by cobble stone streets, traditional architecture and a plethora of beer pubs. A short walk away is the Ignatz Bubis bridge which will take you by foot to all of the cities cultural attractions.
Where to eat nearby, as recommended by the hotel staff:
Daheim im Lorsbacher Thal: Traditional German food, phenomenal flavours, very cozy spot with a large heated outdoor seating area. The house-made bratwurst here is what dreams are made of.
Kanonesteppel: Another great traditional spot, seemingly quite popular with the locals, I had the traditional schnitzel with the famous green source, a great recommendation by the wait staff, and absolutely loved it.
Pizza Petro: I personally haven’t tried this spot, a girl can only eat so much during an overnight stay ☺️, but was told this is the best pizza in Frankfurt.
Address: Frankensteiner Str. 20, 60594 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
