The Premier Inn Wiesbaden City Centre Hotel occupies a site at one of the most important city entrances to the state capital. By taking up the building lines along the surrounding buildings, the clear seven-storey volume strengthens the heterogeneous urban situation. A façade cladding of red clinker bricks makes the building a new landmark building in Wiesbaden.

The lobby of the hotel can be reached from the street over a small forecourt and also from the adjacent parking deck at the rear. In the ground floor, the reception with a lounge, a bar and the breakfast room and also hotel rooms with private terraces are situated. In total 164 rooms in three different types are oriented towards the ring or the rear property. The basement houses ancillary rooms and the building services.

The façade of red brick slips wrapped around the building. With the regularly structure and sculpturally elaborated details, the façade forms a unique and smooth garment, profiled with proportioned projections and recesses around the double-wing windows and the rounded corners of the building. To emphasise the base and the top, the window openings there are larger designed than on the regular floors.
