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.

Short stay but great
Reviewed 2 days ago

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
Reviewed 1 week ago

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.

Nice large modern rooms

We stayed at this location during the world cup. It was great to see that the hotel set up a huge screen on the river front which was packed with fans. This made for a energetic vibe across the premises. The rooms were large, modern and clean. The rooftop spa and pool were delightful and offered spectacular views of the mountains and river. Good value.

Not 5 star quality, rather poor performance (unfortunatly)
Reviewed 1 month ago

I booked a 3 night stay at this hotel with the idea of high class comfort and 5 star quality. Not quite the case. The room was very good, spacious, quiet, good beds (for us anyway) So far so good. What I value in a hotel, either low budget or high end priced is this sense of beiing well organized. No mather what happens management and staff are in control and keep their guests happy. Of course things can go wrong, thats life, but you think and breathe solutions. What made my stay disapointing was the indifferent behaviour I witnessed. The staff, mostly young people, were friendly but seemed to lack experience. During my stay I did not see any person taking the lead to manage any small or bigger problems. The hotel was that weekend apparently fully booked with a large company convention. This lead for example to quite some chaos at the breakfest, buffet was regurlarly out of basic breakfest supplies, waiting 15 minutes in line at the coffee machine to get a cappucino, dirty dishes everywhere on the tables. The breakfest restaurant looked a lot like an overcrowded McDonalds on a Saturday afternoon in any big city on the planet. I remember clearly the despair on the face of one person from the staff. Other example. After a long day of business or seightseeing I love to come back to my hotelroom. My bed has been made, I have fresh towels, the room has been cleaned. Yes, time to relax. Not the case. Explanation at the reception.To many guests so no time to clean. And this happenend not only on Friday but also on Saturday. Believe me I have seen my fair share of hotels on this planet and I am not a difficult guest. But this stay was definitly no value for money at 250 euros per night. For the first time ever I decided to check out before the end of my reservation. Maybe this was a case of really bad luck on all sides, but I am not convinced ...

Nice modern room, but poor service!
Reviewed 1 month ago

For a “grand” hotel, they really don’t understand business travelers. I stayed here for one night while on business in the area at the suggestion of a colleague. Given the high room rate, I expected the hotel to have great service.

My check-in was good, and when I arrived the room, it was modern and upscale. But as a frequent international business traveler, it really disappointed me. The chair at the desk had no back and was useless for getting any work done. I then tried to eat and found out that all the restaurants were closed at dinner time due to an event they were hosting on the back terrace. For some reason that one event shutdown all three restaurants and blocked all access to the river. When I asked at the front desk they pointed me to nearby restaurants, all of which had more than an hour wait.

Management clearly needs to rethink its way of hosting events if it wants to support business travel. Very disappointing!
