Please ignore the horror stories that have been written about this place.....

I found it clean, friendly and excellently priced with great location.

My friend even broke the toilet and it was fixed whilst we were out during the day.

Recommend to the intrepid traveller.

I stayed with my wife in the Hotel Elbe for 3 nights.
And I must say right away that this is not the neighborhood you want to stay in if you are on a family holliday. Hookers and druggies and sex-clubs surround this hotel. This is a shame really because the hotel itself is not bad and actually represents a fair value for money. Our room was nice and the breakfast buffet was above average.
But overall we can not reccomend to anybody to spend time at the Hotel Elbe.

As a single woman, I never felt unsafe, despite the drug addicts in the adjoining doorway when I left each morning of my five day stay. The first room I saw was impossible, but I talked them into giving me a triple which was clean enough and comfortable enough. After visiting the smoke-filled subterranean breakfast room once, I left without breakfast, never to return. The hotel was rated 3 star and I asked the desk clerk if this could possibly be true? His reply, well, maybe 2.5 stars! The proximity to Messe Frankfurt and the Station was fine, and KaiserStrasse, while not the finest street was ok for strolling, but the area was quite depressed and the passersby during the day were not comme il faut. The strip clubs across the street certainly provided interesting local color, but unless you're writing an article about the fleshpots of Frankfurt, I'd avoid this place like the plague.

This hotel was the pits!!! We stayed here for 3 nights and no longer thankfully. The hotel itself seems ok but is opposite 2 strip clubs. The lobby is very small, as is the lift, only fitting 1 person at a time. The room was clean and spacious and even had a little balcony which made for interesting people watching!

The buffet breakfast is hardly a buffet at all. The food on offer was 1 type of cereal, bread rolls, yogurt, sliced ham and coffee with no replenishing.

The hotel doesn't seem to be in the safest part of town and every night of our 3 days there was an ambulance called to the front of our hotel or to one of the clubs across the street. We only ventured out at night once but didn't do it again because the door staff outside the strip clubs across the street would yell out to us to come into his club!!

Overall, if you're into adult entertainment then this is the hotel for you; if not don't bother staying here!

Not sure where these pictures come from but the double room we booked did not look like this!!! The hotel is located in the red light district of Frankfurt which can cause some people to be uncomfortable especially when you step over drunken bodies lying in the street while checking in. At 2pm.
Approaching from Kaiserstrasse however is different (unless it is 3am) and the hotel door is kept locked at night and only guest are allowed access. The staff are very friendly though and the breakfast was typically German: cheese, cheese, cheese.
All up, not bad, but no real reason to race back next time I am in Frankfurt.
