STAYING with FRIENDS
Hello Ruby! Lean luxury is the philosophy of the fledgling hotel chain, Ruby Hotels. The focus is on providing the luxury of a design hotel at affordable prices for discerning guests, with a love of the unique, the original.
Every hotel is in a central location and offers top design and high-quality room furnishings together with comprehensive multimedia facilities. And all of this at an unexpectedly low price. This is facilitated by consciously foregoing expensive extras such as an in-house restaurant, fitness centre or reception.
We were won over by this concept of lean luxury. The Soravia Group holds a stake of 25% and we are expediting the expansion strategy. The other shareholders in Ruby Hotels, each with an equal stake, are Franger Investments, Michael Hehn and Michael Struck.
Following the opening of the first Ruby Hotel – the Ruby Sofie in Vienna’s Sofiensäle – a second hotel has already opened in Vienna in the former La Stafa department store on Mariahilferstraße – the Ruby Marie.
With the opening of the third hotel, Ruby Lilly in Munich, the hotel group entered the German market.
New openings, such as Ruby Lissi in the first Viennese district at the Fleischmarkt, as well as in Düsseldorf and Munich, are planned for 2017 and 2018. Further hotels in other European capital cities are set to follow.
