“Nice hotel, bad location”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mom. We chose it because of it's supposed proximity to the main train station (we had an early flight back to the States and wanted convenience). Little did I know the hotel isn't even that close-- it's a 10 minute walk from the station in the COMPLETE OPPOSITE direction from the city center. And it's in a really desolate area, not close to anything except one little convenience store and a so-so Italian restaurant. There are no real dining options at the hotel (their menu has 2 or 3 pricey unappetizing sandwiches on it) so we were basically stuck eating chips at night since we didn't have the energy to walk the 10-15 mins in the cold & rain to reach civilization-- which was just fast food joints & bad restaurants around the station anyway (I realize that not wanting to commute to the center for dinner was our decision but this just gives you an idea of the circumstances).

Aside from that, the hotel itself was nice (but not nice enough to make up for the location!). The rooms are tiny but very clean, the staff are friendly and there's one computer in the lobby with free internet access. We were there on the last day of a convention weekend so it wasn't exactly cheap. I'm still kicking myself for not picking a hotel off of one of the main drags (Kaiserstrasse perhaps) instead. It might have made Frankfurt more enjoyable for us if we were able to reach the sites easier.

If you're looking for an affordable hotel near the station that still allows easy access to the city center, do not choose this place. There are many other hotels that are closer to the center but still accessible to the train station. But if location isn't an issue (you don't plan on going out to sight-see or shop) and you just want a clean, reliable place to stay in the general vicinity of the train station, this hotel isn't a bad option.

We flew in from Toronto on a horrible flight on Lufthansa. When we arrived at the hotel, it was on the riverbank of the Main, close to the Frankfurt rail station and about a twenty minute walk to the Frankfurt Christmas Market and about anywhere else in this wonderful and friendly city that you would like to go.

The is friendly and helpful, the rooms are spotless and cleaned daily and the breakfast is very edible. There is a flat panel television in the room that receives some english stations as well.

When you need a place to sleep and shower, this hotel gets a full 5 stars.

A very pleasant experience to be expected with the Ibis hotel chain. Rooms tend to be on the smaller side, but overall very clean & comfortable.

Hotel staff are very friendly and we got a river facing room.

Hotel is also very conveniently located, approximately 10 minute walk to the main train station, on the north side of the river bank.

Breakfast is recommendable at €10 per person, which provides a good selection including: scrambled eggs, ham, cheese, yogurt, cereal, fruit, toast & croissants.

Wi-fi is free and available in the main lobby/bar. In fact, wrote this review in the lobby of the hotel.

Definitely recommended!

I ever stay at this hotel before, because it's close to train station easy to go around Frankfurt. Price is reasonable and service is excellent. We will come back to this hotel.
Book this hotel through online is easy.

We all found the Ibis at Frankfurt to be of a very good standard and we were able to enjoy the facilities offered. The rooms were a little smaller than the previous Ibis - Koblenz we had stayed at but very comfortable. Our only concern, was for my husband and I, we had requested a double bed and we were given twins. This was the only negative coincidentally this also occurred at the Ibis - Koblenz. Otherwise the stay was very good and the location ideal for visiting the city.

I stayed at the Ibis Frankfurt Centrum for 3 nights and it was just good enough for us. The room was clean, spacious and super-silent. The staff was helpful but they could use a smile once in a while. The only thing that bothered me was the distance to the city centre. It was a good 15-20 mn. walking to get to Römer or Hauptwache. There is a tram nearby, though. I went to Frankfurt to see the Christmas Market which is absolutely fabulous, so if I go next year again, I will try to choose something closer to the Altstadt.

The main advantages of the hotel is it’s price and location on walking distance from the train station,
The room was like a typical room in Ibis hotel - very clean, everything worked fine.
Staff was friendly and helpful for 24/7.
I would definitely stay here again.
