I'm surprised actually by the really negative recent comments. I have stayed here at least four times. This most recent time I paid roughly 40 Euros a night to stay in downtown Frankfurt. Unsurprisingly that only buys a certain level of comfort in a major banking center. The hotel is centrally located, close to the tran station, university, museums, etc. And yes, it is in (or rather, on the edge of) the Red Light District. So you will see prostitutes and sex shops. Anyone who had bothered to read anything about Frankfurt should know that, so it's hard to have sympathy for those who were surprised. (The man across the street in the hat is actually not a pimp, but the owner of a strip club, in reponse to another comment.)
The staff are uniformly nice (and generally speak English, German and French, plus probably Arabic and other languages, as they are immigrants to Germany). The internet (about 1 euro an hour or so) works fine. The beds can be soft, yes. My shower has always worked. And anyway they fix stuff if you ask. I have never had anything stolen and have even left bags there with valuables in them when I went away for a few days. I have never seen prostitutes in the hotel and I doubt very much they rent by the hour.
Basically, it's a good place to stay if you are an adult and can take of yourself.
