On 6 March 2017, Hering opened Germany’s first transit hotel at Gate Z 25 in Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport. It is aimed primarily at international travellers who want a comfortable place to spend their stopover at the airport. MY CLOUD also offers its guests a flexible check-in service and the possibility of booking a room by the hour without needing to leave the transit area.

With the transit hotel, Hering is adopting a new approach and establishing a completely new area of business. The project kicked off when the lease agreement was signed. Hering Service GmbH, which acts as the investor and operator, then set about drafting detailed plans. The actual construction work began in February 2016. During the construction phase, at times up to ten trades worked on site simultaneously – around 40 tradespeople had to be coordinated. But the real challenge was integrating the hotel into an existing, highly complex building.
The MY CLOUD opened its doors roughly one year after construction began. The hotel today offers its guests 59 stylishly furnished rooms to freshen up and relax in, with an exclusive view of the airfield. The rooms, which are ten square metres in size, are equipped with a bed, desk, stool, television, a separate bathroom with a shower and WC and an infotainment system. The ideal location for the gate ensures that guests can get to boarding and their connecting flight quickly and comfortably.
