The hotel is situated to the side of Frankfurts main railway station (HB). If you come out the station and turn right, you will see it.
It seems there is a red light district area in Frankfurt, on the left hand side of the HB as you exit, so you will be clear of that at this hotel.
We arrived well before official check in time and I requested a room overlooking the front, with views of the tram and the HB. We where told that a room not overlooking the front was available straight away but we would have to wait for a room overlooking the front to become available, but we where able to leave our bags at the hotel. The reception staff where very helpful and friendly.
We had a twin room with a balcony, as requested overlooking the front. Service was fine, although the one thing that I have had to mark the hotel down on is the room looks a little dated and there is no A/C, however a large fan is provided. We where put into a smoking room and we are both non smokers- however, as we requested a specific room with specific views, we where not going to complain. The room has a mini bar, which is included in the room rate- which is fantastic! Inside, you will find beer, pop and water. Wi-Fi is also included in the room rate, with passwords being provided by reception. This is the case for all rooms.
The bathroom is fine, although looking a little dated. Shower gel is provided in a small hamper which is quite a nice touch. The other nice little touch is on the beds, a small pack of Harribo sweets are left- not quite sure of the reason, but its nice.
In the lobby, complementary drinks are provided including tea and coffee. Hotel guests are also able to make use of their business centre, with access to computers, printers and drinks, again its included in the room rate.
Breakfast was very good for a continental European destination- with a good selection of both hot and cold options and a selection of fruit juices.
This is not a hotel that seems to regularly pop up in searches, but is worth the stay if you can get a cheap rate.
I have based my rating on the price (I got a very good price for a flight and hotel package for 1 night for 2 people) and the two negatives mentioned earlier.
