“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2008

I booked the hotel over hrs dot com and got a very good rate (58 Euro) compared to other hotel websites (65 Euro and up) I looked at.

The hotel is close to the central train station, probably 5 minutes to walk. The room was clean, the bed was clean, the bathroom was clean, everything was in a good condition. 1 free bottle of water and a delicious breakfast buffet (included in the price) with organic yogurt, cheese and sandwich meat.

The environment is okay, across the hotel is a police station. It wasn't very noisy, I haven't had any problems to sleep. To be on the save side, I recommend to get a room on one of the upper floors.

My result: I liked the hotel and I would always stay there again.

  • Liked — It was very clean and the breakfast was very delicious.
  • Stayed February 2008, travelled on business

We arrived at the hotel at 9pm after a long flight from Singapore. The hotel had absolutely no problem with a late check in and had a glass of champagne ready for us on arrival.

We spent two nights at this hotel - everything was basic but clean. We were on the first floor (and although close to the kitchen and breakfast area, were not disturbed by noise) and had a small balcony with a few steps leading down to a courtyard where you could enjoy a few afternoon drinks or a pizza by candlelight (although don't count on the hotel for room service or restaurant). Breakfast was fantastic - a mix of cereals, breads, cheese/ cold meats and an organic section. There is a computer located in the reception where guests can access the internet free of charge.

The hotel is centrally located, right next to the train station and the very centre of town is only 5mins walk away.

Overall, the staff were accomodating, the location was great and if you're holidaying on a budget for 1 or 2 nights, this hotel is a good choice.

My daughter and I arrived at the Hauptbahnhof in Frankfurt and were checked into a creepy hostel. We checked right back out. We went back to the Hauptbahnhof and asked if there were any other more suitable accomodations nearby. We were directed a block of so away to the Hotel Cristall.

It is a small hotel with a friendly staff. Our room was clean, and we were just far enough away from the Hauptbahnhof to not be disturbed by rail noise. They were redoing carpets and apologized.

We were delighted by their breakfast set up. The tables all had linens, and there were many things to choose from.

If you want a decent clean friendly place to stay right across from the Hauptbahnhof...on a budget..enjoy
