If you are wanting to stay in a Best Western - choose the Best Western Scala, NOT Domicil! Although the Domicil is right near the Hauptbanhof, you only have to turn left out of the hotel and go one block and you are in the 'red light' district. Not pretty! I am personally well travelled and I did not feel safe walking through this area.

The hotel itself had small rooms, the bathroom was not clean, tiles had alot of grime and the water pressure was unbearable. You could barely wash the soap off your body!

The only benefits that I got from the hotel was the free wifi and the free breakfast. Other than that, after seeing friends rooms at the Best Western Scala my recommendation is stay there instead!

I stayed here during the Ambiente show due to it being the only hotel i could find with any availability and would not stay here again. There is only one word to describe the room and that is "brown". Brown Walls, carpets, curtains etc, you get the picture. The bathroom was clean but in desperate need of updating. The decor of the bedroom looks like the 70's and the mattress must have been made in the 70's. I travel a lot with work and have never in my life experienced a mattress like it, it didn't seem to have springs but was stuffed with what felt and sounded like straw, hence I didn't get much sleep and couldn't wait to leave. The lift is another hotel facility from the 70's.
I visited the show twice and my first night was in the intercontinental, a world away from this hotel, 5 star, modern, clean facilities etc. The shocking thing is the intercontinental was cheaper!!! For next years show I will book the intercontinental now to ensure I don't end up here again paying their extortionate 5 star rate for a 2 star hotel.

My review is not the hotel itself, having never been there but the review is on their customer service/relation. We made a reservation for our company President for a trip to Frankfurt on the 10th but had to cancel our reservation due to difficulty and uncertainty in getting the German visa. Because of the difference in time zone, our office admin missed the required 7 days cancellation on the 3rd and instead tried to cancel on the 4th. She was told that even though it was only a day late, we will still be charged for the first night of $185 Euros. Needless to say, our office admin is very upset. The hotel could easily cancel without a penalty to allow for a genuine mistake on her part since it's not often she deals with global time zones. In the US, it's not uncommon that reservations can be cancelled up to the night before arrival. She made an honest mistake and I would have hope Ms. Bauernfeind would have been more understanding of this.

Needed to stay for a night at Frankfurt and found this hotel to fit our rather tight budget. Room was simple and small (but not to the extent of being cramped). But the bonus was the free wifi in the room which was actually quite fast, contrary to other reviewers commenting about the slow internet. We parked our car close by, rates were 3 EUR from 7pm to 7am which was reasonable, so absolutely no complaints. For the price we paid, this is a very decent hotel stay.

I travel to Frankfurt quite often and this was the first time I stayed here and I found it was a good value. The hotel is very close to the railway station and that makes it convinent to get to the airport and most of Europe. The rooms are typical small rooms of most hotels in Europe but it had a nice restaurant for breakfast that was well stocked. There are sevelal restaurants within a block or 2 of the property. Internet was included, which is rare for Europe.

We needed a cheap simple hotel and that is exactly what this hotel is. It was located near the train station, was very clean, had large comfortable rooms, super friendly staff and was very cheap!

What else would you need?!
