Pluses: overall it has a low key stylish feel; great location for train access - 5 minutes walk from the main train station; friendly service; good value (we paid 79 euros for a standard room); good sized well planned room and bathroom, with windows that open (although to a street that's noisy if you're trying to sleep); complimentary internet access; good breakfast (included in the room rate).
Minuses: the hotel has maintenance problems: our air conditioning did not work (when I mentioned it to the clerk he said that other rooms were experiencing the same problem), the room opposite ours had its door open for the duration of our visit with dirty towels on the floor (it appeared that the roof was or had been leaking); our bathroom door had been damaged and repaired with a large unpainted blob of timber filler. For a hotel that sells itself on affordable style these issues need to be addressed. The service, though friendly, was sometimes haphazard - eg requests forgotten; no-one on the desk for a few minutes when we arrived.

This was our first trip to Frankfurt and as we were arriving by train we wanted somewhere close to the station, the hotel is located on a quiet street about 5 minutes walk from the station. Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and sat outside in the lovely courtyard at the back of the hotel. The entire hotel is decked out in white so it looks very modern and also has a unique style to it as a local artist appears to have added his own style to the decor complete with a wall upon which guests are invited to express themselves about pretty much anything !
The rooms are of a good size again decorated all in white to give a very modern feel. Rooms are complete with I pod docking station, safe mini bar, flat screen TV, well stocked bathroom
Overall a fantastic hotel in a great location would certainly recommend this hotel especially for anyone arriving by train.

So close to the train station, that was a wonderful plus, but be careful of where you walk after dark alone. The front staff was professional, helpful, friendly and all around great. Oh, a for us non-German speakers, their English was impeccable. Breakfast Buffet was well more than adequate and the clean, white setting was appealing too.
For a boutique hotel, the room was on the small side yet had a King sized bed, but certainly comfortable. The shower was a delight. The price was too low to mention. Free Wifi added to the comfort.

Very clean, bright, comfortable if small room with all amenities, including free wifi throughout hotel. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff, eager to help but not great on restaurant recos. Very convenient location, around the block from Frankfurt's main train station and walking distance to just about everything. Extensive and delicious breakfast buffet, included with room. Windows open for fresh air, but at 5 or 6:00 both mornings, lots of street noise. We would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: Try for room away from front street to avoid street noise.

an overall nice effort and certainly above the rest for this part of FRA. there is a number of shortcomings though that keep this place from a list of top rated or innovative hotels:

the good:

very convenient location within walking distance of main train station
most excellent breakfast buffet, one of the best I've ever seen in Germany
there is a gym and a sauna
free and fast wifi

.... and the not so good:

'double' beds are typical German style two small beds pushed together; that is plain sad and annoying
there is no AC in the gym and sauna was not working during visit
small bathroom and shower with basic fixtures and limited amenities
tiny TV (hello this is 2012)

A chic boutique hotel located a stone's throw away from the Frankfurt main station. Well designed and very clean lines with nice little touches like a copy of Vogue placed in the room. The single room is a bit small but adequate with internet connectivity. Since it is in the centre of town there are number of eating places all around. Breakfast served in the lobby was very good with a variety of exotic fruits.

What a great little hotel this is! Just a 2 minute walk from the main train station so perfect if you are just passing through, there are plenty of reasonably priced places to eat and drink within walking distance. Super friendly staff offered a glass of sparkling wine on arrival and looked after us really well throughout our stay. The patio is lovely for an evening drink and the breakfast is the best we had throughout our whole trip. All areas in the hotel were immaculate, our room had an extremely comfortable bed with pure white linen including big fluffy towels. Bathroom was small but perfectly formed!
Wouldn't hesitate to use this hotel again or recommend can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back would be quieter
