Expert reviews

The Guardian review:

“Among Hotel Gerbermühle’s selling points is its fine dining restaurant (mains from €19.50) that combines local food (beef tartare, wiener schnitzel with cranberries) with international classics (chicken in calvados sauce). It is on the river and has great views of the city skyline.”

CNN review:

“Frankfurt’s wildest new hotel overlooks the river and Osthafen docklands on the central city’s eastern edge. It’s an art hotel with décor that ranges from antique (exposed stone walls) to offbeat (horse lamps).”

Telegraph review:

“Housed inside a 14th-century building that was once frequented by Goethe, the Gerbermühle has been reincarnated into a unique and atmospheric hotel. As well as incredibly homely rooms, it offers a rustic restaurant, pleasant beer garden and a small stone-walled bar.”

All you need to know

The building that houses the Hotel Gerbermühle has seen many transformations over the centuries since it was built in the 1300s. Constructed on the left bank of the River Main in the 14th century, the structure was surely destined for great things as this was the foundation of the rich history of the hotel today. In the 16th century, it was turned into a corn mill and in the 17th century, a tannery. These two historic roles have given the Gerbermühle its name. ‘Gerber’ means tannery and ‘Mühle’, mill. Its transformation into a world-famous hotel was envisioned by the owner, Werner Kindermann who pioneered its renovation and refurbishment.

The German hotel is located in the posh Sachsenhausen neighborhood in Frankfurt. Sachsenhausen has characterized cobblestone streets and sun-dappled squares, which are an absolute pleasure to stroll. The area is best known for its apple wine and offers a vibrant nightlife with lots of bars and beer gardens to choose from.

The suites of the hotel were the creation of architects Müller & Jourdan, who drew inspiration from the building’s physical structure and historical legacy. The old stone walls and exposed beams are remnants of the build’s past. Each room is named after someone who played a role in the life of the structure.

Good restaurant but not worthy to stay overnight.

Overall atmosphere with a great restaurant

My room was on the 1st floor and was very noisy. The restaurant is good but the hotel is so so.


26 December 2022

Very good

The hotel is very nice, a peaceful spot.

Who can sleep in the bed?! You can hear all the guests getting back to the hotel - clacking of the doors are that loud.

An oasis away from the maddening crowds of Frankfurt

Hotel is a beautiful boutique property in a lovely forested area of Frankfurt. Outstanding restaurant, simple but nicely appointed and thoughtfully decorated rooms. A find on this business oriented city and a perfect respite from the hustle & bustle.

No turndown service in the evening & no robes in the room.

Very good

Great location by the river, close to the airport, clean room and amazing view! Good and polite staff. Good fresh breakfast. Free parking lot.

Comfortable stay with some downsides

We really liked the room. It felt cozy and comfortable. Lovely shower. And we had a very nice walk next to the Main. Overall we had a good an comfortable stay. Roomservice was running, we ordered food in our room, what came quickly.

It’s a bit overpriced for what you get I guess. We didn’t try the breakfast because all reviews said it wasn’t worth the 19€ a person. we went for the bakery 5 minutes up the road. The hotel is absolutely dog friendly, but we paid an additional fee of 25€ extra for one night to bring him. That was a bit much in our eyes, but we already booked.. The rooms are next to the lobby, so it’s not a quiet place to stay.

Nice stay but would not return.

Nice staff at the reception. Pretty design of hotel room.

The charcuterie at breakfast was not refrigerated, also not covered so many flies were sitting on the food. In general the breakfast wasn’t very nice presented for 25 Euro per person. The hotel offered to skip new towels and bedding everyday for sustainability reasons in exchange for a gift. We didn’t get any gift. Also we did not understand that this means that the room service gets completely skipped every day. The did not make the bed, cleaned, emptied the bin etc. For the price we paid, this is a No Go.

Rooms were airy, bright and the bed was incredibly comfortable

Excellent hotel with super breakfast

Excellent hotel for a very reasonable price. Quiet location in a huge park on the bank of the Main, with a lot of opportunities to walk, do some sports, let the dog run, etc. And it's only a few minutes from the motorway exit. The check-in was very quick, even the staff was still present despite our late arrival. The room is nice, everything seems quite new and good quality. Very comfortable bed and great shower, and nice river view. And the breakfast! It is served to the table and has such a huge selection of various things (eggs of 2 kinds, sausages, salmon, cheese, buns, pastries, fruits, yogurt, etc) that we could not eat everything. So I gladly recommend it and looking forward to the opportunity to visit again.

Very nice hotel and restaurant in Frankfurt

It has been our third time staying there and we love it. Great atmosphere. Beautiful rooms and excellent food in the restaurant. Very dog friendly. Great area.

There was a party outside of our window downstairs with loud music. They stopped eventually.

The hotel is simply perfect. Gorgeous interior design, super clean, cozy, nice territory. I loved simply everything about the property. Highly recommended!


5 August 2022

Wonderful, perfect but for water at Euros 9 a bottle, breakfast inadequate for this quality hotel.

The Staff, cleanliness, size and location of our room, location of the hotel, and being able to park our car behind the hotel barriers, especially good as the venue was so popular. Outside dining area. Our dog being made to feel welcome. We would probably return when next we visit our family, but would hope for a more substantial breakfast.

The breakfast was not up to the standard we would have expected, especially as the first morning there was NO fruit available, and the only cold drinks on offer was water, milk or orange juice. May I also mentioned we met with our family who live in Frankfurt for the evening meal on the 22nd July, at the hotel, and asked for "Table Water", but was given bottled water at 9 Euros a bottle, which was excessively expensive, as we had 3 bottles which came to Euros 28.

Lovely hotel in a great location, but badly let down by outside service.

Location lovely, right on the river & not too far from the old town (pleasant 40 min walk along the river).

Service at the outside bar & restaurant appalling - badly organised, too long to wait especially for the bar. Understand that staff have to have specific responsibilities so everyone knows what their role is, but there should be more flexibility when one section is much busier than the other. At times some staff were completely overwhelmed, whilst colleagues hung about and abruptly pointing out it wasn’t their job when asked if they could serve us. One particular bar guy was really helpful but you could tell how very stressed he was at times - not great for him. Maybe they rely on people putting up with poor service because of the great location.

lovely location by the river, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. would definitely recommend

room decor, comfortable bed, bathroom design

service on the terrace was patchy but some individuals were great

Excellent stay.

Wonderful staff. Hotel spotless


23 June 2022

Very nice place, just next to the river Main - with very comfortable beds for a great night sleep.

The complementary bottle of water and the view down to the river. The bed was very comfortable and I loved the down duvet. Location is a bit further out, but in rewards is very quite at night.

The hotel staff couldn't reserve a table at their own restaurant for the same night, would be great if that could be coordinated better and a spot reserved for hotel guests. There was an iPad that was supposed to give all info on the hotel in the room - which didn't work though.

welcoming,peaceful,with excellent food and service

location superb



9 March 2022

See you soon ❤️

I totally love this property and I have been coming here since 2008. The location is fantastic. By the water outside Frankfurt but just minutes from the city centre. I had a beautiful junior suite and slept like a king in my cuddly bed.

Beautiful hotel but will not return

The hotel is totally beautiful.

Breakfast was very minimalistic. For baked eggs you had to pay extra. Only because of the breakfast I will not go there anymore. After the room was cleaned up the second day, there were old blood or vomit stains at the top of the sheet. Had to lay at the other side to avoid contact.
