Reviewed 29 October 2013

I saw a lot of negative comments about this hotel and was surprised, because my opinion is just the opposite. Of course, the hotel is not located in the best part of the city, but it is near the train station and the city centre. There is an outdoor parking right near the hotel, which is free in the evening and in the night; the locals say that it is safe even though there are a lot of shady people wandering in this area. I was still worried about my car, so I left it at a parking house right on the opposite side of the street, which was much safer and not very expensive. The room was spacious, clean and fine, we even got an en-suite room, although I booked a room with shared bathroom. The only disadvantage was that there was very poor internet connection in the room itself, but on the stairs and in the corridor it was good. The staff at the hotel are very helpful and nice people, and, moreover, it was one of the most budget options in Frankfurt even during an exhibition, when the prices for the other hotels were insanely high.

I was booked into the ABA Hotel by hotels.de, but when I got there I was told that I would be staying at their sister hotel, Hotel Mosel a few blocks away. Both hotels are in the red light district and I felt very unsafe walking at night. My room was filthy, with stained bedsheets, no hot water at all and it smelt of stale cigarette smoke and urine. Absolutely discusting. It was too late to find another hotel that night, but in the morning I had bites all up my legs. I moved out although the owner wanted me to pay for the second booked night. Avoid at all costs.

I am usually not picky about hotels, as I content with a bed to sleep for the night. But here I have two reasons to complain:
- The hotel is noisy, even though I was on the 5th floor and on the courtyard side. All kinds of buzz, heard even with earplugs. Not to mention that it doesn't feel secure, definitely not a place to go as a couple.
- in fact I had booked at the Rossija hotel which is just beside, but the receptionist at the Mosel hotel looked at my booking (a long time) and did not tell me (!). So I paid twice for the night and realized it a week later when looking at my bank statement...

RED LIGHT DISTRICT ALERT! Stayed here for two nights because it was a fair price (45 euros a night). The reception area is cordoned off with what looked like bullet-proof glass. The service was as shonky as the establishment itself. Pimps and prostitutes adorn the levels of this hostel. Elevator wouldn't take us to the ground floor, internet didn't work, tap in our room put out a mere dribble, the heaters were noisy, we weren't shown how to use the really dodgy door key, and our room smelt odd.. definitely wouldn't recommend this place. The only good point was that it was centrally located, however in an awful part of the R.L.D :S

My son and I stayed in this hotel on the last leg of our German vacation during March. After spending a week in Bavaria and enjoying every second of it our one night stay in Frankfurt was very disappointing. Mosel Hotel is in the red light district of Frankfurt near the Hauptbanhof. The patrons of the nearby strip clubs and gambling establishments aren't of the type that you would want to be hanging out outside of your hotel. Very sketchy situation after dark. The hotel staff were actually very friendly but between their rudimentary English and my rudimentary German it was a little tough to thoroughly communicate. There were no bathrooms in the hotel rooms just one bathroom at the end of the hall on each floor. No air conditioning or heat in the rooms either. Cleanliness was an issue as well seeing as the floor we stayed on had an offputting odor throughout our one night stay. The overall ambience of the hotel reminded me of a hotel you would see in a movie about soviet-era Russia. Paid an exorbitant amount for my one night stay since it was a "holiday" (St. Patrick's Day).

I booked 2 rooms. I thought/assumed they were en-suite, they were not. Lift did not go to 5/6th floor, so had to walk up from 3/4th. I could have walked down from 7th if the reception had told me. There was no hot water in my room. About 30seconds of hot water in the bathroom. No bedside light and the curtains fell off when pulled. My customer's room was worse!! Same problems with curtains. Wardrobe door had fallen off before we arrived. Bed falling apart. TV had no sound and was propped up on 2 chairs. Sofa stained. Very dodgy people in the street outside hotel. Appalling value for money!!!! I have never stayed in a hotel this bad and to be charged €149 is a complete insult.
