The Story of Flemings Hotels
WE WERE BORN IN A TAXI
Ignaz Blodinger was working as a taxi driver in New York at the time and one of his regulars was - as luck would have it - James Bond inventor Ian Fleming. They talked animatedly.
Among other things, how one could create “the ideal hotel”. From then on, Ignaz had a dream that he could not let go of. He wanted to open a hotel in which the individual needs of each guest would be met across the board. Years later he fulfilled this dream.
He already had the perfect name: Flemings!
OUR BRAND PROMISE
The brand promise of Flemings Hotels goes back to that of Ignaz Blodinger. His vision created our hotels and still carries them today: the ideal hotel as a place that belongs entirely to its guests. Founded by the joy of travel and encounter. Determined by attention to the details of individual experiences and an eye for the big picture: memorable experiences at fair conditions. Since then, we have continued to develop this heritage. Every day. With every guest. In the middle of the city. In the midst of the zeitgeist or surrounded by a timeless atmosphere in a historic setting. With us you can experience urban hustle and bustle or sit back. To regenerate or to work. For a local specialty or countless international cocktails. And always to feel at home. All Flemings hotels are united by their cleverly thought-out and to the point standards, which result from our understanding of perfect hospitality. Our guests and their individual needs are at the center of everything we do. We treat every guest with exceptional attention - whether for a single day or again and again.
FLEMINGS – AS INDIVIDUAL AS OUR GUESTS
Many discerning customers and business travellers know and appreciate Flemings hotels. In the search for a hotel brand that they can trust, it is more important to them to find individuality and charm rather than uniformity and anonymity. In our hotels, you will find a successful symbiosis between international standards and local charm. Those who are looking for a state-of-the-art hotel experience and for whom local character and the culture of the respective city is important will find that they are in the right place with Flemings. The Flemings brand will win you over with its top locations, excellent service, luxurious rooms, and sophisticated catering facilities.

Flemings Express stands for hotels with an urban spirit. We combine contemporary environments with a relaxed atmosphere. Simple, genuine experiences without unnecessary fuss. But with really good coffee and at least as good gin and tonic. The feeling of being at home but still sleeping better. All this makes Flemings Express Hotels the ideal starting point to be inspired by the diversity of urban life. Or to recover from it.
