Good to Know
Initially built as a hotel in 1904, the building was transformed into the ‘Düsseldorfer Operettenhaus’ in 1910. From 1951 to 1970 the building was home to the ‚Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus,‘ which became one of Europe’s most important theater stages, led by Gustav Gründgens. One of Gründgens‘ most popular productions at this stage, later filmed, was Goethe’s Faust with Gründgens playing Mephisto. This is where the name of the hotel Ruby Leni originates from: Faust’s Helena. The „Forum Freies Theater,“ which can still be found in the basement, reflects the building’s theater history.
This rich history also influences the hotel’s interior design: diverse furnishings including original antiques and props tell the story of the theater world in the 50ies. These touches are reflected in the interior of the rooms as well as the public areas, combined with style elements from the 60ies and modern era.
