Apartment Hotels in Frankfurt
Frankfurt is a very popular destination especially for business travelers staying in our apartment hotels in Frankfurt. This is mainly due to the city’s role as a metropole for public and private financial institutions.
A financial metropole – apartment hotels in Frankfurt
Frankfurt/Main has always had a social and economic importance for Germany. With a population of 700.000 inhabitants, it is the fifth biggest city in Germany. The metropolitan area hosts more than 2 million people.
Frankfurt differs from other cities in terms of the way the city presents itself. Many buildings are very modern. When you enter the city by train you will spot lots of skyscrapers. Once guests in our apartment hotels in Frankfurt enter the city, they will know why the city by the river Main is often called “Mainhattan”.
However, the high-rise buildings are not only due to the city’s role as a financial center. They are also due to Frankfurt’s devastation during the second world war. Before that time, Frankfurt’s was known to be very beautiful and unique – part of it was rebuilt afterwards in order to maintain the charme of the city.
