“Good option with transit across Frankfurt at the door”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

I stayed at the Excelsior for one night on business. Chosen from recommendations for ease of transport option across Frankfurt, reasonable cost/value for a 3 star hotel in the downtown.

Arrived by train, so 100 meters to the Hotel. Used the S-bahn for meetings and a short taxi ride to main meeting. All in all, suited my needs for this trip perfectly.

The hotel is definitely 3 star, common areas and rooms clean but functional. Staff all friendly and again a good cost/value proposition as long as you are not expecting a higher level hotel. Rooms were large enough.

The breakfast was better than I expected in a hotel of this class.

Overall, very satisfied and can recommend if this type of hotel and location is what you are looking for.

Room Tip: Wifi Internet works.

Had a recent stay in this pleasant hotel, very central, and just across the road from frankfurt main train station. Breakfast is amazing, so much variety, looked forward to this lovely feast each morning, it really set us up for the days sightseeing and shopping, also loved the idea of coffee/ tea and cakes available all day in the foyer of the hotel, with no problem taking this to our room. Great to have the mini bar in our room also, and even better it was free of charge. All these little extras made our stay at the excelsior very enjoyable indeed. The only fault, and I'm sorry to say this, is that the bedroom was very small, no leg room at one side of the bed at all, but this was our only negative point. We will definitely recommend this hotel and will book to stay here again when we next visit. Thank you !!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room when booking, and preferably one at the rear of the hotel, due to street noise...

The hotel is in great location in front of the main station. Many resaurants are around, also near the shopping area. The room are tidy but little bit small. The mini bar are free. Breakfast is good with many varities. Stuff is friendly. The only thing was not good the bad smell that sometimes exist in the bathroom. OVerall, I will stay there again if ever I went to frankfurt.

It was our second stay in this hotel. Location next to Frankfurt Main Train Station makes this hotel very popular. Street noise is unavoidable for such location, but it is not overwhelming.
Free internet, free minibar, excellent breakfast with great selection of food including international cuisines.
Sleeping arrangements are quite good - comfortable bed, good pillows.
Service is very efficient; it took only few minutes to check-in. Small issue we had with the minibar was fixed straight away.
This hotel is our first choice in Frankfurt.

The hotel is located right across Frankfurt Main Train Station and is very easy to find. Breakfast is good (quite delicious actually) and the minibar in the room is free! Room is clean and comfortable. Price is reasonable. The only gripe is that the luggages are all placed in a room which is not locked or manned. Anyone can enter the room to take the luggages as there is no exchange slip or anybody to ensure that you have collected the correct luggage. Deposit at your own risk!

Location is just accross Frankfurt main stn. Breakfast is good. Free mini bar at your room. WC is very old and not so easy to move around. Very very small and stain in the floor. You could heard a lot of noise on the room beside during cleaning time. Elevator is only two which are bothe very small.

Stayed here for a night and I can only recommend it. Right across from the train station, nice staff, good rooms (the bathroom was a bit small but it personally didn't bother me) and a great breakfast buffet! Would definitely stay here again.
