Affordable design hotels in Bonn – your Motel One
When Franz Liszt celebrated Beethoven’s 75th birthday on Bonn’s Marktplatz in 1845 – the event that led to the now-popular Beethovenfest – he probably never guessed how important the sleepy little town would one day become. Many years spent as the former capital of West Germany has shaped it into what it is today – a modern, cosmopolitan and lively city.
Are you an art, music or theatre fan visiting Bonn? Then the exclusive location of our hotel near the Bonn opera house is the ideal starting point for a day tour around the city. Fuelled by a healthy Motel One breakfast, famous sights such as Koblenz Gate, Beethovenhalle, Bonn Minster, Haus der Geschichte and the main railway station are just a few minutes’ walk away.
From Motel One you can quickly reach the city centre, where you will discover beautiful Baroque buildings and can stroll down the picturesque streets. At the Beethoven House, classical music enthusiasts can learn more about the life and work of the famous German composer. Beethoven is a key figure in Bonn’s history. One of the most photographed sights in Bonn is the Beethoven Monument at the architecturally stunning Münsterplatz. Say cheese!
If a visit to the Beethoven House isn’t enough, the annual Beethovenfest (Beethoven Festival) is highly recommended, which offers extraordinary performances of the composer’s work.
Rhineland cuisine, student neighbourhoods and the ‘Rhein in Flammen’ firework display
In addition to art, music and history, Bonn also offers a lively culinary scene. Discover Rhineland delicacies such as Leberwurst (liver sausage), Flönz (a type of blood sausage) Grafschafter Goldsaft (a sweet spread for bread) or the famous Eifeler Landbrot (farmhouse bread). By the way, if you need a bit of relaxation in elegant surroundings during your tour, we are happy to welcome you to our One Lounge.
Bonn has much more to offer than historical sites; the city is also home to many students, events and a great nightlife. If you happen to be in town on the first Saturday in May, the ‘Rhein in Flammen’ firework display is a must-see. Otherwise, there are plenty of pubs and bars in the Altstadt neighbourhood where you can enjoy a fun evening on any given weekend. Don’t worry, our reception is open late – perfect for you night owls.
