Which started once with a manageable, gastronomy offer, became nowadays a successful and traditional family business in Mainz and the top-selling privately owned hotel of Rheinland-Pfalz:
50 years ago, exactly the 15th April 1971, the gastronome couple Eberhard und Kristina Barth overtook the so called Stadtparkrestaurant Favorite as tenants of the Allianz, who built the Favorite during the sixties. In the following years, the house was more and more growing. The great visions and ideas of Anja and Christian Barth emboss the today's Favorite.
An incredible amount of courage, ambition and especially lifeblood put both of them into their house - with great success!
Therefore, they have been awarded as Hotelier of the Year in 2019.
And this successful story does not cut off: the third generation already moved in the Favorite. The both daughters Julia und Anna are creatively and personally managing the total department marketing and social media.
We are looking forward to your visit in Mainz!
Who is working strongly,
should rest in an appropriate manner!
