Overview

The Review

Bonn’s hottest new hotel focuses on blurring the lines between work and play — a clever concept that is working out not only for business travelers but also generating buzz in the leisure market for its warmth, color and atmosphere. The innovative glass and polished metal façade has been described as a forward-thinking take on Europe’s grand old hotels, and the Kameha Grand also impresses with its downright trippy interior designs and its basement geothermal power plant.

Thanks to clever juxtaposition and the use of exaggerated objects to toy with the senses, walking around inside this huge, curvaceous glass and metal beauty is a mind-bending experience. Spot the supersized chandeliers, the 11-player pool table or the chair that looks exactly like the others in the room but is more than three times the size, and you’ll catch our drift – {“type”:”img-inline”,”src”:”/static/images/product/properties/321/pgal-94493-1277746574-612×355-full.jpg”,”width”:”275″,”caption”:”The avant-garde design isn’t limited to living spaces. Don’t let the print in the rain shower distract you.”}wandering around the Kameha Grand makes you feel as if you’ve fallen down Alice’s rabbit hole after eating a handful of magic mushrooms.

One of the coolest amenities is the rooftop infinity pool, lit bright neon magenta and tattooed with the designer’s signature surfer-chic flowery tribal prints, which are also stamped onto walls, beds and floors. The entire place is a chaotic collision of bold colors, styles and materials, where play is a prevailing element and the vibe is bold, brash and poppy, with a splash of lovable tackiness.

If your idea of an interesting hotel doesn’t involve tables shaped like pigs or wall-size screen prints of shapely half-feathered angels in the bathroom, then this might not be your cup of tea — even if one of the themed rooms is named after Bonn’s most famous son, Ludwig van Beethoven. If you’re into pushing-the-limit design and up for a good adventure in the former West German capital, then sleeping at this one-of-a-kind-design-meets-business hybrid on the river is a real trip.

disappointing...
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

we booked relatively short notice via the website. upon arrival we were told that due to a large private function all restaurants were closed and the only place to get dinner was at the bar or room service (same menu). due to the remote location there was only one restaurant in walking distance. I would expect that this kind of information is available when booking. we would have decided to stay another weekend instead...
wellness is a mixed bag. the pool is great, however the entire area is rather small and crammed. there are 2 saunas, both very small. we were unable to book any treatment.
breakfast was average at best. due to a sunday brunch arrangement breakfast was only available until 11am.
there were no newspapers available.
the room was spacious and clean however was a bit worn. very minimalistic amenity kit and only 2 coffee pads

overall okay but not great and definitely not 5 stars. with a little extra effort the experience could be much better.

This hotel is located in Bonn with the Danube walk at the rear of the hotel. From the moment we checked in, we noticed the detail - a beautiful large foyer-the room was very nice and unusual, with Dual Shower and bath.
Breakfast Buffet had so many varieties of food - one was 'set up' for the day.
Total cleanliness is every area and its the largest hotel, we have visited.
The hotel has a Spa and a beautiful pool, which is on roof level.
Hope we can visit again

amazing design hotel

loved the unusual bold ideas, felt a bit like alice in wonderland in the courtyard- nice appointed rooms with L‘Occitane toiletries, nice bedding, Espresso machine. the red hallways take a bit getting used to...friendly staff. minibar can be stocked but one needs to buy whatever is stocked, unusual system. 16 euros for 1 Gin and Tonic is also not cheap but it was very good.

Short stay but great

We just needed a night in the hotel as we had a dinner booked at YUNICO and can say that everything was perfect

The rooms are spacious, clean and modern....no mini bar except one books a special package at reception....not really what I would do but then I rarely use the mini bar. The corridors are bright red...or dark red? one has to get used to it but it is actually quite quirky

Dinner was without a doubt absolutely fantastic. Breakfast was average for me, yes huge selection of bread, but it seems the breakfast buffet was an afterthought...one has to look for the items. I am a bit of old fashioned, I like when in a hotel someone comes and asks if I would like to have a cup of coffee....not here, one has to find the machine and do it oneself....but then again, I guess I am a bit spoiled

Overall a very good stay and was very happy with everything

Magnificent Hotel near Bonn and The Rhein

This is a great hotel near Bonn and The Rhein River. It is a bit out of the way but you will be rewarded with good food and a peaceful walk along the Rheinplatz. It is very stylist inside and out. The headboard even has a moon light in it (see photo). Plan on spending 34 Euros to get here from Seigberg Bonn train station.
