InterContinental Frankfurt
Ranked #36 of 269 Hotels in Frankfurt
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 February 2014

My first international trip for work led to me arriving at the Intercontinental at 8am exhausted and bedraggled from a 26-hour trip, and somewhat terrified at the prospect of appearing cool, efficient and confident for a round of work meetings in the morning, in a country in which I rather rudly did not speak the language. The Intercontinental was the perfect hotel in the circumstances. Efficient and kindly, staff gave me access to my room, had luggage delivered, clothes pressed and assisted with directions and advice cheerfully. The restaurant made a good and easy dining experience for a woman who had never dined out alone before.
The central location made it easy to explore late-night shopping after work, and the very hort walk to the Stadel ensured a marvellous first day in the city.
In the nine months since my trip to this hotel I have become a more seasoned business traveller in foreign cities, but I remain very grateful for the Intercontinental for such a reassuring welcome to Frankfurt.

I arrived in the morning from an overseas flight and was so thankful that the staff were willing to accommodate a (substantially) early check-in. Staff was always courteous and professional. I also found the food in the restaurant to be of high quality and again the staff were great. The breakfast was constantly replenished even though it was very busy. Unfortunately though the building and rooms need quite a lot of work. The room felt very dated, and I would expect more from an Intercontinental. Also the room was far too hot, even with the heat turned entirely off, but thankfully the window opened and I ended up sleeping with it open as well. I realize its difficult to do anything with the exterior of a dated building, but there is certainly lots you can do to the interior.

The staff and service at the Intercontinental Frankfurt were both great.

The physical structure was tired, and dated. It was clean, and well maintained...but its time for a 'refresh'. This hotel shows the great disparity among Intercontinental Hotels. I would say that this hotel is on the lower end of the scales...but not as bad as the San Juan property.

As a Royal Ambassador, I was upgraded to a suite. It was roomy, but just BLAH and dated. Fresh flowers throughout were a nice touch, but the room still left me wanting something better.

The CLUB is not included for Royal Ambassador members at this property. I elected to pay the 35 Euro charge, but after the first day....i had my access removed. The club was not a place i wanted to spend time. The morning and evening food offerings were basic....and fine. There were complimentary soft drinks, wine, beer and spirits. The room was just BORING and sterile.

The breakfast in the dining room was fine, typical.

The lobby reminded me of a large office, with open work spaces behind the front desk creating a very strange esthetic when you walked in. The lobby certainly isnt glamourous or welcoming in any way. Again....old and tired.

The health club carried on the same theme. It screamed 'welcome back to 1988' as i walked in. Nothing special at all...

I come to Frankfurt twice a year for work. I will probably go back to another hotel next time. The Intercontinental is fine....but there are certainly better hotels with better room offerings in the city.

I stayed at this hotel on a reward night through the IHG Rewards Club program. Without looking into reviews, I booked it. The amount of points I redeemed was way to high for what this hotel is. Even though the staff is excellent and friendly, the rooms are very outdated.

Even though I got an upgrade to a "Superior room" I was quite disappointed upon arrival. As a tall guy, I couldn't even stand up in the bath tub to take a shower and the room temperature was uncomfortably and uncontrollably hot.

I've stayed at many InterContinental hotels before, and my room definitely didn't match what I was expecting from this brand. Would not recommend.

The fact is, I am writing this review for the third time. The first time I wrote a very elaborate review on the official reviews page on their own website. When this review was rejected because of some bogus reason, I summarized it a bit, and then they finally published it. However, not long after that it disappeared from that page.

I can't believe they are deleting negative reviews on their website to make the hotel look better than it is. Not only was I disappointed after the stay itself, I am also highly disappointed in the way this hotel handles negative reviews.

Overall, if you can score a cheap rate this hotel isn't so bad. But otherwise, this hotel is way to expensive for what it is and it is definitely not worth the InterContinental brand.

Classic hotel near the business area of the city and not very far from the old center. In fact you can have beautiful walk beside Main River and end up in the old center. Lovely breakfast with german white sausages and small beans with tomato sause...great flavour. There is cozy sitting area for the breakfast, during spring and summer you can sit outside, the terrace is very nice - facing the street. Rooms are clean and especially if you have room on the upper floors with a view on the city towers (what the people there are calling the city: Mainhatten :)) just enjoy it!

Room Tip: 1. tip - I think that some of the rooms are not renovated - I suggest you to ask for a renovated roo...

Quite typical of any intercontinental hotel, with service and property I would expect in Europe. The only problem is the hotel is located not too near and not too far from tourist attractions. Its about 20 min walk to Romer, the river walk is quite pleasant though. But if you choose to walk through Haupbahnhof, the walk is not so pleasant as you have to pass through a not-so-pleasant part of town. The place is very quiet at night, so walking alone is not preferred. Frankfurt being a big city, there are quite a lot of homeless and robbers roaming around town.
Breakfast buffet is small, but reasonably good spread, and the same food is served everyday. Rooms are old but I was given a room with river view, so the fireworks on new year's eve was quite rewarding.
Slow internet speed, not-so-knowledgeable concierge are small irritation but the bell boys are very helpful. Would I recommend anyone to stay here? For tourists, not really unless you want to fit into your budget. Those nearby Zeil and Romer would probably be better for tourists. And for business (I assume you don't party too late at night), this place is quite ideal, given that it is quiet at night.

Room Tip: Join Ambassador club to enjoy upgrades and free wifi, which is on slow speed in this property

We stayed for one night on 27th December. Having been a little concerned by previous reports of how old-fashioned the rooms were, we were extremely pleasantly surprised to find the standard room spick and span and perfectly well furnished with comfortable beds, a flat screen TV and a decent bathroom. The welcome at Reception was delightful and the whole stop-over a great success - and all for 85 euros. Wonderful value.
