Germany-based Ruby Hotels is planning to open its first hotel in the UK in summer 2019. ‘Ruby Lucy’ will open with 76 bedrooms and will be located on London’s Southbank close to Waterloo station. 

Ruby is a ‘Lean Luxury’ Hotel Collection currently with six hotels in Germany and Austria. 

‘Lean Luxury’ means offering hotel guests a five-star standard bedroom at a budget price in a prime city centre location. It manages this by stripping away what it considers to be outdated features of more standard hotels. Hence there is no in-house restaurant just a communal space serving breakfast. Vending machines replace room service and minibars. 

However, the latest technology is not sacrificed. Each bedroom includes a personal tablet PC and smartphone pre-loaded with a local city guide with unlimited data and calls to use throughout a guest stay.

Contemporary-designed bedrooms are fully soundproofed with walk-in showers and blackout curtains. They also feature quirky touches such as a Marshall guitar amp in each room, which guests can use either with their own guitar or one borrowed from reception.  ‘Ruby Radio’ is the hotel group’s own internet radio station.

Other features include fully-equipped work stations and libraries plus live music nights, movie screenings and events for guests.

Following the opening of Ruby Lucy Hotel, a second Ruby Hotel with 160 bedrooms is planned in London’s Clerkenwell  with a 2021 opening date.
