Dipping into the HotelChatter Flickr Pool today we found this shot of the Le Meridiend Parkhotel Frankfurt which we admit caught our eye because of the interesting, non-fugly carpeting. But also a bonus was this review from Flickr member Spencer D Allen who writes:
Very artsy hotel, very unique. There are 2 towers, one with very modern (almost W hotel style) decor, the other side with a much more sophistocated [sic]and almost old world luxury. this room is from the old world tower.
The location is very unique, right near the red light district.... it's not for kids. It definitely proves the stereotype of Frankfurt being boring very, very wrong.
We're intrigued already. And we have to say that room is considered part of the "old world tower" but it looks a lot newer than some new hotels we've seen lately. Of course, there could always be some clunky armoire hiding a chunky TV that we just can't see in this shot.
Considering the Le Meridien for your next trip to the exotic Frankfurt? Room rates start at 145 Euros for the hotel's historic wing. The modern design rooms are bumped up to 225 Euros. Check those rooms out here.

During a recent trip to Germany, we got the chance to check out the city’s newest Design Hotel, Roomers (from the same folks behind The Pure and The Bristol). Check out the resumé of our love-hate relationship with the hotel below.
First, the love…
Rotating TV Sets!: Call us a sucker for fancy gadgets…or maybe just the fact that we can’t live without our BBC World while we primp for a night out, but we absolutely love the swiveling flat-screen TVs that let you watch German language soaps with equal ease from the bed or from the bathroom sink.
Once upon a time there was an industrial revolution, which among many other things gave many parts of Europe and America nice loft spaces to someday transform into chic boutique hotels.
Take 19th century Frankfurt loft, add minimalism, the color white, and adjectives such as open-minded, cosmopolitan and intimate and you get The Pure.
Like any good hotel-fairy tale, this newly opened hotel is already making the design world take notice with recent write ups in Wallpaper* and Lifestyle Navigator. Besides the complimentary laptop usage, they also offer a Media Jukebox with 40 movies and 1,000 songs on demand.
The lobby transforms itself during the day, from being calm and refreshing in the morning, to nightclub in the evening. One guest felt a little underdressed, and equated the room to "A Clock Work Orange." The all-white interior, alas has been done. Have you been to an Apple store recently?
