a little bit of crazy on the banks of the Rhine....

Sitting on the banks of the Rhine, in the former capital of West Germany, Kameha Grand is a grand hotel with… well, a lot of a difference. Close to the city centre and overlooking the majestic ‘Siebengebirge’ mountain range, Kameha Grand is every bit your typical large-scale business/leisure type affair… that is, of course, until you step inside. Designed by the ever inspirational, yet clearly rather deranged, dutch-master Marcel Wanders, the interior design is a typically tripped out fairytale from the psychedelic designer with gigantic urn-like pillars and Wanders’ signature prints on everything from the floors and walls to the bed of the heated outdoor infinity pool. A geothermal power plant in the basement means that the Kameha can account for 70 percent of its heating and cooling needs, meaning that this enormous space, the Kameha can host conferences, fashion shows and concerts along with it’s huge bars, restaurants, spa, 190 rooms and 63 suites, can stand up for itself ecologically, important in a city that has found itself hosting a number of large international conferences in the area of environment and sustainable development.

With a series of themed rooms including the ‘Beethoven Suite’, old Ludwig van was Bonn’s most famed son, and the ‘Fairplay Suite’ with it’s Wii, Putting Green, Dartboard and more, the Kameha Grand, whilst offering all the traditional amenities (and so much more), is thankfully about as far as you can get from the typical business/leisure complex it represents, and as such, a truly refreshing surprise.
