I stayed here for two nights on a last-minute business trip to Frankfurt. The taxi dropped me off across from the hotel, and I had to walk through what looked like a drug deal on the way to the hotel.
There was a queue at reception but that moved quite quickly and the person at reception was very friendly.
The first room I was given was basic but clean but I asked to be moved to a different room because the shower was very small. I was then moved to an even smaller room but with a better shower. The new room is number 603 and while it is very small and has quite a grubby floor and a lot of noise from the street outside, it's actually fine as a clean and basic place to sleep.
The real problem with this hotel is that there are no dining facilities. I arrived after 9pm on a flight from London and when I asked about food, the person on reception showed me a list of nearby restaurants but he didn't know where any of them were. Given the area and my experience of walking to the hotel after the taxi drop-off I decided that rather than walk around to try and find anywhere to eat I would just go to bed. In addition there was no still water in the room so I had to go downstairs and buy some from reception. A German friend of mine who lives in Frankfurt also told me that the red light district is only a block away and not to walk around very much after dark.
I think this hotel is fine for anybody who is a budget holidaymaker or budget business traveller, otherwise I would strongly recommend to avoid it.
