Hotel Mack - a house with a long history.

Historic building under preservation order

The house was built from 1902 to 1904 and nowaday is under preservation order. Originally, It was an apartment house, later it represented the head office of the Ziegeleiwerke Speyer and the Agrippina Insurance Company. In 1953, Anna-Maria Mack (née Binz) turned the building into a hotel step by step.

Art nouveau facade preserved

During the Second World War, the roof and the rear part of the building were destroyed by bombs. A fire bomb landed in the room which is now the breakfast room. Fortunately it did not explode and the art nouveau facade has stayed undamanged.

Renovation of the hotel

In 1976, Helmut Binz, the nephiew of Anna-Maria Mack, took over the direction of the hotel. Since 1976 the hotel has been renovated year after year in order to meet the requirements of a modern hotel, e. g. bathrooms and televisions were installed in all rooms. Since 1996 Christian Binz is the hotel director. The breakfast room and the bedrooms were modernized again and the facade was restored. In 2007 four rooms and bathrooms and the spacious Junior suite were modernized and furnished with contemporary furniture. In January 2008, a new elevator was installed and in March 2008 all rooms were equipped with modern flat screens. Since 2009 we offer 4 more double rooms and one more single room.

Modern business and theatre hotel

Today our hotel has 47 rooms, 6 of them in our guest house in the courtyard and 5 more rooms in the opposite building at Ifflandstaße 17. Within 37 rooms the Mack Hotel operates a non-smoking policy.
