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.

Not good !
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We just had 2 nights here.
Room : big but too busy decoration ( colorful carpet , light , curtain.) you hardly can rest your eyes since you stepped in and walk around,bed is hard , we took the room without river view so we couldn’t open the window and the room is hot with the air central system and loud at night- and I don’t think we can make it cooler .
There is the bar with the coffee machine but no water boiler - you have to order it . No standard table for writing . But what so disappointing for me is also : There is a note which said that if you don’t want your room to be clean daily - if you stay from 2 nights ( to safe and care about the environment ...) then you can get a free drink and 2 € donates for an Organisation to help people or something like that .We hanged it out side , they took it the day after that and they didn’t clean our room either. but by the time my husband checked out, they didn’t mention .we both forgot to ask - which we think now that is not our job. And we left without confirmation for this note .
My husband works near by so we stayed there. But I think he should pick a better hotel next time .
Beside those : the staffs are very friendly and the door man is helpful . The park near by is beautiful and quite.
But I think if you only come to visit Bonn or want to have a good time in your room, this is not a good choice . Maybe only for business - the one who only spend few hours for shower and close the eyes and sleep zzz.

Unforgettable experience

We stayed at the Kameha Grand to celebrate the Rhein im Flammen festival and fireworks. Since the vessels line up right in front of the hotel, this is by far the best place for your stay.
The day after the festival we upgraded our Junior Suite to the Royal Suite. We enjoyed every second of it. Spacious luxury, with great views on the river. Even from the bedroom as the bathroom. Sunbathing on the private terrace. Playing tablefootball when the sun sets down.
Kameha Spa is also spectacular, with its infinity pool overlooking Rheinaue and the river, great place to relax and enjoy a cocktail.
Excellent service from frontdesk to breakfast team, from Stage Bar to the Spa crew; every single employee made us feel special. A special word of thanks to the kind lady from Guest Relations.
We’re looking forward to our next visit!

Nice Stay

Nice hotel with a beautifully designed interior and comfortable rooms just along the River Rhine. Especially the bathroom and shower are really nice to use and spacious. The spa area is rather small and certainly gets overcrowded at times, if there is space the treatments are nice and the facilities inviting though. The staff generally is really helpful and friendly.

2nd visit still as good

So the problem with getting here is the fact hat you fly into Cologne Bonn airport which is miles away from the city of Bonn. A combination of trains and taxi got me to the hotel which was as spectacular and quirky as I remembered from 2 years ago. Great friendly staff, interesting décor, great open spaces and the Rhine at the end of the garden - brilliant. The food was plentiful. The services were good, the room as modern and had everything that I needed. Overall another great stay and really enjoyed it

Good choice for a stay near Bonn

The hotel’s design and room amenities are nice. Good Spa. I think this hotel is categorized as 5 star, but don’t expect your usual 5 star (luxury) detail and attention here. The price was also quiet low, and I think you do get fair value for money. Upon arrival, there’s no one who helps with car or luggage. reception will not greet you when you come back to the hotel. There’s no rooming or information on hotel services. (Which was most surprising cause isn’t there a lot of extra revenue in cross and up-selling?), No turndown service. Room service trays are in the corridors for hours in the afternoon, waiting for pick up. The cleaning ladies left the empty water bottle in the room instead of replacing it with a fresh one, garbage bag was not replaced, the SPA staff removed my towels and slippers from my chair when I went into the pool... the list of small details goes on. It’s all not a big deal when you know what to expect.
The only real issue was that you can’t shut the blinds fully. Our room had a big window front towards the atrium and it was light all the time.
I will try another hotel next time, but I think the Kameha can be a good choice for a stay.
