Clarion Collection Hotel Frankfurt City

Reviewed 25 May 2012

My first impression when I entered the hotel was, that this could not be a 4-star hotel... the lobby is small and - even though is interesting - is not impressive. But the room was big enough and the bathroom also. Breakfast is OK, but I would expect wider selection from the 4**** hotel in Germany.

I would say that the hotel in a little bit above average... and I could really recommend it to anybody if its location could be a block away form his location... The location in the middle of red ligt district was not an issue for me, but it could disturb people... The fact is that there are ugly bars and casinos around, call girls and pimps also on the streets, speacially at night, and it is also loud... so if you need piece & quitet to go to sleep avoid this hotel because of the location and not because of the hotel itself....

I stayed there for two nights, I came to the hotel not before 2am and I really did not feel threatend any time....

So, if you are not botherd by the district, the location is perfect for the fair grounds and for the city center... its not more then 15 minutes by walk to any of these directions.

Room Tip: 203 was good :)

The night that I arrived to the hotel, was so cautious with the red light district. But when the morning starts, wow its the perfect location and its not as scary as I thought. 2mins walk to the central train station, 10mins walk to Romerberg, old town and to Kaiserdom. Good base if you will go to the outskirts since the train is near and the tour agency is near the train stn as well. The hotel room is indeed lovely. Yes the view is not as what you wanted and the noise is visible in your ears. Other than that the room is nice and spacious. I will surely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is not as bad as some of the other reviewers have made out, well at least not in my experience. I stayed here for 2 nights to visit the Music Messe on business. The hotel is literally a stones throw away from the main railway station in Frankfurt, and it is a 10 minute walk to Messe if you are here for a conference or trade show.
Yes, there are a few sex shops/brothels in the area near the hotel, and I certainly wouldn't recommend staying here with kids or for a romantic getaway. But for a central hotel near all the business areas, and with a quick link to the airport it is perfectly fine.
The old town is about 15-20 mins walk away and is well worth the trip.
Breakfast was fine, with the usual Cereals, Crossaints, Fruits, and English Breakfast(ish)option. And the rooms have all you need and are clean.

Stayed here for 2 nights- thursday and friday. Had a room on the third floor overlooking the sex shops and strip bars. This in itself is not an issue, but the street noise at night was an issue. Police and ambulance sirens were frequent. There was no Internet reception in the room and the receptionist tried to tell me it was my laptop and iPhone that were faulty. The room phone is also switched off by default and one has to call reception to have it activated. The worst aspect was the breakfast menu,where old, stale bread was served two days in a row. That's unforgivable!

we stayed in this hotel a few weeks ago and it was absolutely disgusting!
First of all the area is horrible and definitely NOT safe to walk around in the evening.
When we arrived after a long long flight and had therefore asked for a quiet room, which we DID NOT receive we asked at the reception if we could change our room to a quieter room and the staff was very unfriendly and absolutely not helpful.
We had to stay in the same room, which is tiny and not suitable for a couple.
To top it all up there were still hair all over the bathtub.
All together the worst stay ever and would not recommend this hotel to ANYONE!

Much has been said in the reviews of this hotel about its location. The truth is that yes it in the redlight district, however the prostitution is not on open display like it is in cities like Amsterdam. It is behind closed doors in the Eros centres that are situated close by. Yes I did see drug users but they did not bother me.
For anyone wanting easy access to the rail, S bahn, U, bahn, trains, trams and taxis the hotel is perfectly situated only yards from escalator access to HBF station.
Once inside the hotel it is a very pleasant place to stay. My room which I booked and prepaid as a small room was indeed small. I was given the option to upgrade if I wished. The room did however have all the facilities one would expect in a decent hotel, was very clean and air conditioned. I was there during a cold spell and the room was warm.
Breakfast was more than adequate with a good choice of continental options and also hot options of eggs, sausage and beans.
To sum up the hotel is not in the best area of the city, but is priced accordingly. If you want a hotel of a simaler quality in a "better" area then you are going to have to pay twice the price and be prepared to negotiate Frankfurts complicated transport system,

We stayed at this hotel because the very close location to main station, it is a walking 4-5 min distance. The room was very clean, and not noise from outside even when, by those days, the was a festival in the streets.
The breakfast buffet is in average and the staff very helpful.
We did not go out in the night, so we can not give an opinion about the "red district"
