“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

Great place to stay. 5 minute walk to central train station. 45 minute walk to most attractions. Breakfast was excellent. Internet was fast. Only complaint, NO air conditioning. Breakfast was excellent. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: Get air conditiooning

located near the river and handy for the museum area. Welcoming staff. quiet and spacious comfy room. price was good value for money. we didn't get the breakfast so can't comment, but for evening meal there's a great italian place round the corner. It's a 10 min walk from hauptbahnhof and that area, so you can go and have a drink at night easily. There are a few general stores in the area selling snacks and drinks. It's a bit far to walk from the shopping area, but there are plenty of taxis - worthwhile if there are a few of you. Would recommend this hotel.

Hotel is situated in a central location approximately 10 minutes walking distance from central train station. However, I was not pleased with the room I was given, situated on the top floor. The room looked like a narrow attic space and the ceiling made the space enclosed. Refuse rooms above the 6th floor to avoid this.

I had a little problem locating the hotel from the train station at first. Then, it got easy recognising the main cross junction where you can find the hotel easily at the end of a street.

I arrived very early and the front office was very kind to allow me to check into a ready single room at 8am.

The room is comfortable and spacious, and the single room booking comes with a single bed. There was a TV but everything was in German. The bathroom is small but just enough for one person really.

Breakfast was a simple fare with a good selection of jams, cold cuts, pastry and some warm sausages and eggs.

The service in the front office and the restaurant are considered really good on the whole in Frankfurt.

A good address to consider! I recommend this to the other hotel I stayed (a 4* boutique hotel just opposite the train station).

The lobby was quite small but then I was very impressed by the size of my room. I thought it was huge space and the bathroom was very spacious. Who knows, maybe I got a handicap accessible room. Check in and out was smooth and the staff was friendly.

Didn't bother with the expensive buffet breakfast as we just went to the train station for a cheaper alternative. The train station was very close and within a 5 minute walk. We walked around to the station at 4:00am to catch our bus, and it felt safe. Didn't see anything sketchy. We walked pretty much to almost everything even to Romer but when we got tired, we just took transit back to the station.

Stayed here in May of 2011 for several days, and enjoyed my stay. It is a 3 star hotel and fits that bill nicely. If your expectations do not excede 3 stars, this hotel will meet them.. The rooms are small, and you expect that in Europe, but they are clean and well maintained. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Free internet is always a plus. More and more I'm finding that hotels in Germany like to charge separately for breakfast and in many cases I find it hard to justify the cost for what you receive.A buffet with scrambled eggs and sausages really doesn't merit some of the prices being charged. ( my only Gripe) The small balconies are a nice touch as well but I could see where I'd miss air conditioning in the middle of summer. All in all a nice stay..

I stayed in a single room that was tiny. No way to simply hang out in your room it's so small. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the train station and so the area is a little seedy at night. During the day the area is fine, very close to the river and walking distance to the old town. There is limited parking here, so get here early.

I would stay here again by myself, but it is so utilitarian that I probably wouldn't stay here with a family.
