Hotel Excelsior
Ranked #65 of 270 Hotels in Frankfurt
Reviewed 1 September 2010

This hotel is one of the best value hotels I have ever come across. For a great price you get a nice room and the following free extras included:
- Wlan use in rooms (you get a code)
- Business centre (you can use the printer too)
- Free tea/coffee and cakes all day
- AMAZING breakfast included, really AMAZING
- Free minibar
- Seminar room that you can use if it is available.

The location is great - just outside an exit of the main station but not on a horrible road. You get miniatures in the bathroom and the room is fine. The lobby is big and spacious and the business centre is wonderful. I paid a great rate for this room and I will definitely return.
If I had anything negative to say it would be that the lift was unbelievably slow (I was on the 8th floor) and the door is complicated to use (the lock) but otherwise the extras that you get with this hotel are truly worth coming for.

The buffet breakfast was good. First time seeing smoked salmon buffet breakfast serving Chinese Pork Bun and it was good. The staff are very efficient. Free Minibar. Some noise from the street but acceptable.

Ths hotel did everything we needed on a stop over between the UK and the US. Could not be more convenient for the station, it's direrctly opposite the exit. Check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room had a double bed and bunks for the children and was on the small side. The bathroom was tiny but clean and functional. It was a very hot night, there is no air condtioning, but with the balcony door open and the fan on it was OK. Despite facing the street it was not too noisy. Breakfast was very good, a huge variety of foods available. Overall, for the price, this hotel would be hard to beat.

We stayed 1 night in this hotel to be able to take the train the next morning from Frankfurt main station. As the hotel is opposite to the station, it's just a matter of crossing the street, so very easy.
We booked the hotel online after having checked on tripadvisor. Cost was just 71€ for a double room and inclusive breakfast for 2.
The rooms are basic, of course, yet bed was OK, everything clean, a bathroom with shower and toilet and all you need, and amazing even the minibar was free (see picture for content). WIth such a low price we didn't expect much from breakfast... yet again a major positive surprise: large choice of bread, cheeses, jam/marmelade, charcuterie, salmon, even cooked breakfast and eggs. Also an espresso machine where you could get your cappucino at no extra cost was present.
Staff at reception was very friendly and helpful. In the lobby you had free WiFi.
It's a 15min walk to the Frankfurt city center.
The hotel has a secured closed car parking which is at a lower cost than the open air parking next to the train station.
This hotel has an exceptional value for money. It's not the fancy hotel to stay at for a touristic trip to Frankfurt, yet will fulfill all needs you have for a short stay.

We paid about $Au110 a night for a room. Hotel's just 60m from Frankfurt's main railway station and while there's nothing particularly scenic about the local area, it's about 200m from the local Greenline Tour office and there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance.
Room was comfortable and clean, bathroom had shower and bath, free minibar (2 beers, 2 pepsis, 2 orange juice, water (still and sparkling) replenished every day), free ironing service for one shirt and one pair of pants each day, and nice coffee and delicious cake every afternoon in the lobby. Hot breakfast was included and a neighbouring hotel provides room service meals at reasonable prices.
Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Only downside was (apparent) lack of air conditioning (apologies if it was there but we didn't notice it) - not sure if it would be great in summer because while you can open windows not a lot of airflow into the room.
There's a great German restaurant about 500m away, delicious Indian place around the corner and Korean/Japanese down the street and a couple of 7/11-type stores nearby plus all the shops at the railway station, which is just 14 minutes abd about 4 Euros by train from the airport.
There's a laundromat about 500m away, although area seemed a little rough and probably best visited during the day.

This hotel is located directly across the street from the Frankfurt train station. We flew in and out of Frankfurt and stayed here the night we landed and the night before we left. Perfect for what we were looking for; affordable, convenient, and free internet. Plus the Mini Bar is FREE with beer, soda, juice, and water, and the included breakfast was pretty good too!!!
