This was a great hotel! Little noisy due to location, but convenient also, directly across from the train station. The room was small but decent. For the price we paid, everything was included! Breakfast, free internet, free mini bar, did I mention free mini bar!!! Huge downside no AC, and we went late May early June, but they do provide fans for the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the main road, it will probably be a quieter stay. Be aware that you are a...

An excellent hotel, close to the main station, restaurants and main touristic atractions. An excellente breakfast, free minibar and tea and coffee at the reception. The staff is great, nice and gentle. A wonderful place to stay. I was there when I arrived and return there. I´ll be there in case I return to Frankfurt

Stayed at Hotel Excelsior for 2 nights in May. It was our second visit.

First of all, positive moments:
1) Location. Very close to Main Train Station (2 min), easy to find.
2) Free WIFI.
3) Free Minibar (2 bottles of beer, 2 of orange juice, 2 Pepsi, 1 still water, 2 sparkling water).
Also there are tea&coffee making facilities.
4) Free coffee, tea, water, fresh cakes and apples are availiable at lobby during the day.
5) Breakfast is good: variety of fresh bread, jogurt, vegetables, some fresh fruits, salmon, ham, cheese. You can drink black coffee or make Latte Machiato/Capuccino/etc.
6) Bathroom is OK and clean. There are also bathrobe and slippers.
7) Staff are polite and helpful.

Some negative moments:
1) The rooms are not very modern, the furniture is a little bit tired. Also there is no air-condition, so it may be a problem. We have a fan in our room and we also opened the window.
2) In the morning there may be some problem with the lifts - they are very small and you have to wait a little bit to get it.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking Train Station have great view but may be noisy. Rooms overlooking enclosed court...

Everything positive in the previous reviews was true of our stay here. Staff was informed and helpful. The breakfast was stunning and a nice social event if one wished to interact w/people from all over the world. The coffee and rolls available in the afternoon were a welcome retreat from the busy city. Our room was tired, the decor is quite ordinary but there were no even minor discomforts about which to complain. The free mini-bar in the room was a treat and unique. I especially appreciated staff handing me a printed set of directions about getting the train to the airport. Step-by-step what to do in the train station across the street from the hotel. I even received a personal letter from the owner thanking me for completing an in-room survey about our stay.

Briefly put, here are the reasons Hotel Excelsior was a good choice:
Located right next to the main train station....reasonably priced rooms....good, clean room and bathroom (with tub)....friendly, helpful staff....great breakfast spread.....free internet....free minibar....coffee/tea and cakes available in the lobby during the day. I enjoyed my stay here and would not hesitate to return.

As other reviewers have noted, the Excelsior is a bit tired. Nevertheless, this hotel gives good value for money and has many positives. The location, opposite the main train station, can't be beaten. The staff are pleasant and efficient. Our business category room was spacious, very clean and extremely quiet. The bed was very comfortable with good quality bedding. The bathroom, while dated, was spotlessly clean and everything worked. The in room wi fi worked well. The minibar was free. Breakfast was great.
Overall, the Excelsior is warmly recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are quieter.

The hotel is in a prime location across from the Hauptbahn Hof. This is convenient for catching a train to any place within the city of Frankfurt or anyway in Germany. The room is neat and clean, with a complimentary minibar in the room. There is also an excellent breakfast spread available in the morning. I would say that this is a great hotel for someone who needs an accommodation for one or two nights. Any longer than that, I would recommend another hotel with, perhaps more/better amenities.
