Invitation for life

COUVA Boarding House is a new concept of life for temporary residence. What is to be expected from an apartment when staying for a limited period of time in a foreign town? To feel comfortable! A cozy and casual atmosphere to relax. To experience lifestyle, creativity, modernity. An inspiring surrounding to feel at home and to enjoy all conceivable comfort such a boarding house offers. And exactly this sense of life is celebrated at the COUVA down to the latest detail. And the location is as important: how good to be in the midst of things with just two steps. This is also possible at the COUVA Boarding House on Merianplatz – it couldn’t be more central.

In the midst of activity

COUVA Boarding House is located in central Frankfurt, in the stylish quarter of Bornheim/Nordend, directly at the innovative Bergerstraße, the longest shopping road in Frankfurt. The proximity to the bustling city centre with its plenty of distinctive boutiques, shops, parks, cafés, apple wine pubs, bars and restaurants turn the quarter into a vibrant, pulsating and dynamic part of the city. Whether at foot or by public transport, everything is only a few steps away. No matter what you need for your daily life, you will find it directly on the doorstep.

COUVA Boarding House provides awesome suites to retreat and to completely relax. But it also provides fantastic facilities to meet or to simply drop by. Everybody is welcome – whether to have a sundowner together on the rooftop in the evening or whether meeting with friends and co-residents to cook something together in our eat-in kitchen or for nice chats in the library or simply for relaxing in our wellness and fitness area.

All our common rooms are equipped with WLAN and music. And there are books, too. Nothing is missing in the common kitchen. At COUVA, it is not only a question to have a bed and a roof: our emphasis is very much on living together.


Meeting in the evening. Cooking together. Endless talks. Drinking delicious wine. Eating together. Meeting friends and new people. Or simply reading for a while? Our common room is something special. Easy-going and casual. And with its mixture of eat-in kitchen, meeting point and library, it provides the perfect atmosphere for unforgotten evenings with friends and co-residents.


You are planning a meeting, a private festivity? Or simply want to work in silence without being disturbed? Drop in at the conference room with the inspiring skyline view.
The comfortable and creative meeting room with its huge conference table and projector, screen and 55” Samsung television provides you with the necessary setting for an inspired kick-off. Including kitchenette and bathroom and direct access to the rooftop – the COUVA conference room is unique and professional.


A few steps up, open the door and WOW. The view over the Frankfurt skyline is unique. A wooden deck, two long tables including benches, bamboo, palms – a light breeze. No matter whether you want to enjoy a sunbath, meet friends or finish off the evening with a sundowner – the spacious terrace (approx. 200 m2) high above the Frankfurt roofs is simply: magnificent. Open daily until 10 pm.


Whether pumping weights or relaxing and letting the spirit flow. All those who would like to do sports or those who would like to relax will find everything required at COUVA to keep body and soul fit during their stay in the wellness and fitness area (completed in 2014).

Our fitness area is currently under construction.
