My husband & I were spending our anniversary in Frankfurt, and we wanted a place that wasn't too pricey, but close to the train station. The Manhattan Hotel worked out perfectly. It's right across the street from the main train station plus the underground city subway, so we didn't have to drive our car anywhere.
When walking in the lobby, I noticed the area was modern, clean, and felt professional. There's plenty of comfortable seats, and a 24 hr bar! The staff was friendly and spoke good English, plus they have lots of attraction pamphlets and maps available. We requested a quieter room, which I was happy to see they commented about the request.
We had a double room on the 4th floor (elevator is available), and we were pleased to see how well furnished and modern it was. There's a safe, mini fridge (with mini bar inside, for a price), new flat screen TV and plenty of information inside the guest accommodation book. The bed was VERY comfortable, and we slept well...except our room did overlook an alley, and at one point in the night some drunk people were outside and causing a ruckus. This isn't the hotel's fault of course, but it might be a good idea to bring ear plugs if you're a lighter sleeper in case that happens.
One of the big plusses is the breakfast (included in the price of room). They serve from 6:15 am to 10:30, which is a lot longer than most places. AND...what a variety! From cereals, to various styles of eggs, fruits, meats (warm & cold), breads, and yogurts, you won't leave hungry! You can also get different kinds of coffee and tea.
A BIG "HEADS UP" - it's tricky driving into the city and getting on the right side of the street to reach the hotel. Due to construction and one way streets, we circled around for a half hour. I suggest just finding a parking lot near the train station and leaving the car there. It's probably going to be 20-30 euro a day (depending on the lot).
The location, price, cleanliness, and service was great!
