I stayed there with a work collegue when we had to stay over in Frankfurt due to an emergency with clients and were happy enough to have any room available for the night since everywhere else was fully booked.
When receiving booking information via text from our office, we initially pictured a family run B&B near the river when misinterpreting the name as "Hotel fishing rod". When being dropped off at the hotel by the cabby however, it became clear that "Hotel Angel" situated right in the middle of the red light district was an angelic affair of some other sort. The inside of the hotel was functional and quiet and despite the name it did not seem to be used as a no-tell motel.
We had a good laugh about the mix up and check-in was friendly and quick. Our front-facing twin room on the 3rd floor was spacious and clean with modern furnishing.
However, as the summer heat forced us to keep the window open the loud music from and noise from the bars on street level that went on until about 4am made it almost impossible to sleep. Observing the trade going on downstairs from the window was an entertaining pastime but I can imagine that walking from or to the hotel at night can be intimidating both for men, who are preyed upon as potential customers, and women alike.
Breakfast the following morning was adequate and staff went out to buy more rolls as a refill for latecomers.
If given the choice i would rather opt for alternative accomodation in a quieter area next time, even if that means being less centrally located. It is a clean room for a night, but not necessarily a good nights sleep.
