Over the last few years, I’ve had multiple stopovers in Frankfurt, some half-days, and some overnight. My first choice for all of the overnight stays is a small boutique hotel called Libertine Lindenberg, Frankfurt.

The Vibe & Shared Spaces

The hotel is one of 3 houses across Frankfurt, guests can access all Libertine properties during their visit. The cool thing about Libertine houses is their approach: they refer to themselves as a collective. The rooms can be rented for any duration, and there is a shared fully equipped kitchen with a communal dining room. There is also a laundry room and a small gym on the premises. The concierge is only on-site during the day and access to everything is by a keypad.

The hotel serves a daily vegan breakfast ($) and occasionally has live music events in their recording studio. During my latest visit, I was able to sit in for one of the live performances. It was a cool experience being a part of this community even if for just an hour.

I also learned that Libertine has recently opened in a new location in Pekutatan Bali, called Lost, which looks simply stunning. Their recent expansion also includes a new location in Taunus Germany (Luchs) and soon there will be in Norway, “on a rock,” I overheard them describe it 🙂

Inside the Suite: Libertine 19

Each room is unique and decorated by local designers and manufacturers, “almost all of the objects in the apartments are handmade one-off pieces”. For my first stay I slept in Libertine 19, this room has great amenities:

  • A full-size clawfoot tub
  • Flatscreen TV with Netflix
  • A sound system and radio with a connection to the in-house recording studio (yes, an actual recording studio).

The full bathroom was a major bonus on this rainy travel day. The room is fully equipped for blissful relaxation. You will find salts, hair, and skincare products with slightly offensive but very entertaining names. For example, “Aromatic picnic [soap] for your dirty hands”. There is also a standard heat pack included which I am sad to say, I have had to use on one of the trips.

Inside the Suite: Libertine 25

During my latest visit this fall I decided to try a different room, Libertine 25. This room is slightly bigger (269 sq ft versus 204 sq ft in Libertine 19) and has a smaller bathroom with a cozy shower. There is a spacious sitting area and a good amount of space for luggage. The two large windows look out at the city streets which I’m a huge fan of. I find not being able to see the door from the bed a nice bonus which often comes with the larger room.

The hotel does not have built-in AC, simply because historically that’s not an important thing. But in the early fall of 2023 when I visited last the temperatures were unseasonably hot all across Europe (and even in Mexico) so fans were provided to cool the room. You can, of course, also open the windows, if the city ambiance is something that’s not much of a bother.

The only downside of this hotel really is the tiny bathroom sinks and lack of counter space for all your bath amenities.

Located centrally in the heart of Frankfurt the property* is surrounded by cobblestone 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 city’s cultural attractions.

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 I absolutely loved it. 

Mina: A lovely breakfast, lunch, and coffee/tea spot that blends Austrian and Egyptian cuisine. It might sound odd but trust me when I say, it is fantastic. The subtle spices are a great touch.

More recommendations for what to do in Frankfurt are to come but in the meantime read about why Frankfurt is considered one of the most Beautiful Cities in Germany on theabroadfiles.com.
