Services in this HI Express reflect the standard Express pattern in Western Europe - including a self service breakfast free-of-additional-charge. The hotel has been opened in a renovated office building. As a result, the floor plans are somewhat complicated - in a way one could imagine encountering in an old hotel property in London, UK. From the elevator hall the floors can be entered on both sides. What may bother the guests is the fact that the floors have automated light control systems. Literarally, the guest must walk into darkness - and sensors will then trigger on the lights. The same applies when opening the room door.
I stayed in this property twice during a Frankfurt trip. The light problem bothered me during the first stay, but I did not take up the matter with the front desk. During the second stay (some days later) some lighths seemed to be on permanently. Perhaps someone had complained.
I have encountered a similar lights-upon-sensor-activation in a Holiday Inn in France. Perhaps some EU energy funding is available to properties with maximum light and energy control.
Rooms with windows to the backyard open an interesting view to a seemingly low end rental house. With lights on in the evening, the house seems to comprise one room units with rather modest facilities. I am aware of the fact that the German rental market offers variety, but I would not have connected such housing scene with downtown Frankfurt. Some guests may think they are in an Asian location. No, but the tradition of "Hinterhoefe" (back yard) is alive and well behind of updated facades.
